Book Description

DEATH FLU: pray you won’t be a survivor...

Racists, murderers, rapists, and sociopaths — it seems that only the worst of America rises like human scum to the surface of a dystopian world shattered by the Death Flu. After the zombie dawn, only they have the strength to survive in a world where your neighbors and loved ones rise again after death, ravenous for your flesh.

In such a blighted world, would you really want to be one of the survivors?

And yet even in the dark places where zombies thrive, there are heroes too: men and women who battle to preserve at least some semblance of decency in a world gone insane. Their fight appears hopeless...

DEATH FLU — a novel you won’t dare to put down.

Not for the squeamish.

About the Author

I live in Rogers city up in Northern Michigan with my wife, Jackie, and son, Nicholas. For many years I worked on the great lake freighters as a deckhand and watchman. As a young kid I watched the movie Dawn of the Dead by George Romero, the father of the flesh-eating zombie. After that, the zombie became my favorite monster. As the years went by I read many novels, some of which were zombie novels such as Rise Again by Ben Tripp, Apocalypse of the Dead and City of the Dead by Joe Mckinney, and the Autumn series by David Moody. After reading many books I decided to write one and that book was Death Flu.

5.0 out of 5 stars survive or not survive December 1, 2012
Death Flu a book by Scott Brietzke wants to make the strongest amongst us in the art of survival almost wishing for a quick death in this well written book.In a world torn apart by a killer flu only the worst elements of humankind survive or so you think. Only a few have the instinct that allows them to survive in a world where people you've known have come back again after death, wanting to eat your flesh.There are even yet heroes who try to preserve at least some kind of normalcy in a world gone absolutely insane.
Death Flu is one of those books you won't want to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death Flu December 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had me addicted from the moment I started it. I didn't want to put it down and didn't except for bathroom breaks. I loved how the story flowed from group to group, survivor to survivor and pulled me into the real life scenarios and made me think..."what would I do???". I could tell that this is the authors first novel but I can easily say any idiosyncrasies that were in the book did not trip me up. I could easily put myself in the characters places and understand who they were and what they were about. I read this book in one day and the only bad thing I could say is I am jonesing for my next 2 is a must!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Badass January 1, 2013
By Angela
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am such a zombie fan, and have been for 20 years. The best part of the recent zombie explosion has been an all-out literary assault of new books, new authors, and new fans. I read my first zombie book 2 years ago, and have burned my way through the Bourne series, the Recht series, Brown, McKinney, Knight, (and many others that would take forever to list). I have recently had a dry spell of new material, and was delighted to discover a full-length novel that I hadn't yet devoured. Death Flu was exactly what I want in a novel-just enough military training and bravado to give survivors a fighting chance mixed with "normal" folks desperately trying to contribute. I think that the only way to make an outbreak work is to make the masses clueless for a period of time, then the realization that, yes, these are walking dead people, but I think that it gets a little too predictable. In this novel, we do have the momentary clueless reaction, but I think it was rolled out in a quicker, more fast-paced manner that keeps you locked in. I also enjoy exploring the darker half of humanity, and many authors will not go to the depths of degenerate behavior that we all expect to encounter in any situation like the zombie apocalypse, or any fall of social disorder. Scott Brietzke was certainly not afraid to go there. After all, to have the good-guys we also must have the monsters, right? Bravo Mr. Brietzke, a sequel would be a great distraction for the long Vermont winter. Make it a really long sequel...Read this book, and enjoy the good, the bad, and the zombies.

1.0 out of 5 stars could not finish it February 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Honestly the dialog sounded like it was written by a Jr High student.
No description of the surroundings, nothing fleshed out.
Could not finish the book, and I always finish the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Busy and entertaining zombie tale sans the depth February 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was entertained, but didn't care for the repetitive descriptions throughout the storyline. It made telling the difference between characters tough since they all thought/spoke the same way. But I did stay with it, and was interested to see the ending pan out. All in all, a pretty good story.

2.0 out of 5 stars just okay February 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story itself I would give 3 stars. The dialogue however is a 1 star mess. no character has their own voice every single person sounds the same white, black, Hispanic, redneck, old, and young they speak with the same unnatural cadence and phrasing. I also have never seen the word "inasmuch" used as often as it was in this novel. The writing style didn't really flow either which makes it tough to get into the story. I didn't hate the book the author just needs to learn how to write dialogue better and understand how to make his phrasing more smooth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting take on the ZA January 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most ZA books concentrate on the "good" people left behind vs. the dead. This book throws in the very real spectre of all of the scum that will rise to the top once society has lost all of its safeguards. The characters are well-formed and the author has done a great job of setting things up for the next book in the series. I'm definitely interested in reading more!
