Who would have thought that immortality would be a curse, and a virus as well. This beats all the similar themed stories out these days in terms of its originality and its clean and honest presentation. Check it out!!
This is a Science Fiction/Apocalyptic story about two men who are accidentally infected with a virus. One man, the protagonist, is an overweight, socially awkward accountant by the name of Josh Mcdonald. The other, Adam Barnes--the eventual antagonist--is a fit and trim, ambitious agent of homeland security. Though Josh does not realize it at first, this virus is something extraordinary. Instead of having some negative effect upon his person, the virus quickly begins healing him of his injuries, as well as healing those around him. He visits a client later that day, a psychologist, and everyone in the office is infected with this virus and becomes healed from their problems. Through the events that follow, Josh and the woman he has been dating are faced with the problem of Mankind's basic evil nature. Peters examines in his book the idea that we would not be likely to be good stewards of such a gift--immortality. Is it right to impose this gift on others? It it right to withhold it from them? How do we solve the problems of a globe full of people that will never die? Is it a problem? I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It moved me into the story quickly and kept me there, wanting to know what happened next. An entertaining read. Peter's conclusions and theories about the effects of the virus are logical, sound and well-executed. One minor issue I had with it was that some aspects of the story were not explained very well, mainly how the virus got to them in the first place. But this is obviously meant to add an air of mystery to the whole thing, so I can't complain too much about it. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who likes Science Fiction, Suspense/Thriller, Mystery or Drama. In my experience many Self-published books have grammar issues or typos, but I would say honestly that this one had very few such issues. There were a handful of typos, but overall it was a very well edited book in my opinion.
This story is like creation in reverse. Where did Peters come up with this stuff? As fantastic as it seems, I can really see this happening if we ever came up with the technology. The love story is sweet too and balances out all the action and chaos. Highly recommended.
