Certainly not just another post-apocalyptic tale brought on by a disease. Oh sure, there’s a disease that has changed the world but no slobbering, blood thirsty zombies are wailing in the night, although there are monsters and twisted survivors trying to control the world.

Told from one man’s point of view, this dark tale turns the tables on misconceptions, what we consider handicaps and really is a bit of an eye opener. Imagine a world that can no longer hear, now imagine being one of the few who still ca

Dave Jeffery takes on the apocalypse in a new and interesting way. When a virus wipes out much of the civilised world, those who remain are now largely deaf. Those that can still hear are captured, often crippled and treated as slaves. We follow Chris and later his companion, Paul through a ravaged country littered with violent vagrants looking to kill or enslave. A Quiet Apocalypse is grim reading for sure, but a twist in the tale and a great ending means this is a real gem. Apocalyptic horror ...more

As is mentioned in the synopsis, the disease responsible is a mutant strain of bacterial meningitis, more commonly referred to as MNG-U, which burned through the global population. Those who contract the disease ...more

I will be reviewing this for Trevor Kennedy's Phantasmagoria Magazine but will put that review here in due course.

Briefly: it's a well written and thought-provoking book that strays away from the conventional horrors of a post-apocalyptic scenario. Definitely worth the read.

The story reminded me a bit of the movie Quiet Place, but better - it has a strong-it could really happen, and f it did happen, it would have happened just like this-vibe. :)

A deadly form of a meningitis virus has wiped out most of the population and left almost all of the survivors deaf. People left with the hearing are few in between. Society fell apart and hearing people mostly enslaved.

We follow a man who lost it all, but his hearing. He stumbled on a farm, only to ha
