    Poorly written, no depth to story.

    Sounded like an interesting premise. Unfortunately it reads like a high school paper. Limited background on characters. Rushed story line with very little to draw you in. Spelling and gramatical errors abound. A disappointing read.

    Read and be vaccinated!

    This book is about one man's search for and the discovery of survivors after an apocalyptic flu pandemic. The main character, Brian Yester, transforms from an unstable man who has lost his family to a man who makes life and death decisions for hundreds of survivors. This is not your typical "end of the world" story as Brian has to deal with something that the reader never imagines. The story keeps the reader glued to their Nook as a chain of unexpected events occur to the very end of the story. A good read that could easily become a series!
