Different Kind of Post-Apocalyptic World!

What I Liked: 1) Stephen. Stephen has had to face a lot in his life and as a result, he's become very strong, but also very wary and untrusting. But what I really liked was watching him slowly change over the course of the book, learning what he was really looking for, and starting to trust the new people in his life. 2) Jenny. Honestly, I wasn't sure about this girl for a while. She was kind of closed off, a little like Stephen, so it was hard to get to know her at first. But then I learned a bit more about her and started to understand a bit more about why she was...the way she was, I guess would be the best way to say it. She's a major influence on Stephen, and changes the outcome of the story. 3) Emotional turmoil. I can always tell a book is really good when I experience a range of emotion while reading. There were tears, happiness, satisfaction, a lot of different emotions that all went into this book. 4) At the end of the book, you have to realize that there was this message that no matter what happens, people try to rebuild and reclaim the life that they always want. Among the many things to take away from this book, I think that was my favorite.

What I Didn't Like: Do you remember when you first learned to drive a car? Was there a lot of stopping and starting as you got used to the amount of pressure needed to brake or drive? I felt like there was a little bit of that going on with The Eleventh Plague. Not stopping and starting, but hurry up and slow down. In future books by Jeff Hirsch, I'd hope to see a more even pace for the book.

Overall thoughts: The Eleventh Plague is a great debut with some very real characters, and a plot line that will keep you guessing. If you are a fan of post-apocalyptic fiction without the dystopian slant that so many seem to have these days, add The Eleventh Plague to your TBR list!

Pretty good

It wasnt a bad story. In fact, it was great. I wouldnt recommend it to people who want a fast paced book because this book is one of those that some big things happen a few times in the book but not a lot in every chapter. Sometimes youl go about five chapters before so...
It wasnt a bad story. In fact, it was great. I wouldnt recommend it to people who want a fast paced book because this book is one of those that some big things happen a few times in the book but not a lot in every chapter. Sometimes youl go about five chapters before something exciting happenes but then all of a sudden something exciting happens.
Thank you for reading.!
