Davi BarkerDavi Barker, author of Survivor Max, is a life long connoisseur of the undead, and believes that art should imitate life, and if it can’t, art should at least eat life’s brain. Frustrated by trend-setters in the zombie genre, and inspired by the liberty community in New Hampshire, he embarked to redefine the quintessential metaphor
SURVIVOR MAX: TOO SMART TO DIE
Meet Max, an 11-year old boy who was stuck in another boring day at school when the lockdown alarm went off. They were under quarantine. He escaped and made it home, only to discover he’d have to find a way to survive this plague alone. Little did he know, his father, his only parent, was among the infected. Slow-moving and non-thinking, the “lamebrains” swarmed his apartment complex, hunting survivors to feed their insatiable hunger for living flesh. Now he must rely on his Porcupine Freedom Scouts training, and scarce supplies to survive. A chance discovery reveals his father’s research on the virus, which in the right hands may be the key to a cure, but first he must prove that he’s too smart to die.
"I'm an 8th grader at Crittenden Middle School, and my teacher told me that someone she knew recently wrote a book and put it on amazon, and that I should give it a try. It looked interesting enough, and the premise had promise, so i read it. A great decision. Fast paced and very well stylized, this book is a true page turner. Many books are hailed as being "Page turners" but, in fact, very few are. This book took no time to get to the excitement and pages that just turn themselves. When i say this book is fast, I mean it's FAST. Right out of the first chapter, there is no time wasted in getting into the main flare. Though the concept can be interpreted as trite, one must keep an open mind and you'll see the originality of the premise. This author is EXTREMELY promising and i would gladly read anything else they have to offer. Lastly, let it be known that i dont usually give literature such high praise. In fact, i dont find very many book very interesting at all. Take "The Shining" for example. This book was well written but took 3 PARTS to get to anything of any interest. This book, as i have said many times before, gets right into it!"
