    In the late fall of 2013, a lethal pandemic virus emerges from the Islamic Republic of Indonesia (IRI) and rages unchecked across every continent. When the Jakarta Flu threatens his picture-perfect Maine neighborhood, Alex Fletcher, Iraq War veteran, is ready to do whatever it takes to keep his family safe. As a seasoned sales representative for Biosphere Pharmaceuticals, makers of a leading flu virus treatment, Alex understands what a deadly pandemic means for all of them.

    Paul says: "Halfway Boring"

    Any additional comments?

    I am about 4 hours into the first part of this book, and I am very close to completely giving up on it. The subject matter is interesting although I don't care for the way it is written. The main character, Alex, is written in such a way that he is incredibly arrogant, annoying, completely unlikeable and unrelateable. I'm rooting for the flu to take him out!

    Then, the narration is horrible. Definitely the worst I've heard on any audiobook. Joseph Morton narrates the thing like a grumpy old man, which almost works since Alex is THE WORST, but since half the book is written in the form of Alex's internal thoughts, Morton legitimately mumbles those lines in such a way that is barely audible. Literally, I cannot understand half the narration of this book because I cannot make out what is being said.

    Like I mentioned before, the subject matter is interesting, so I am sticking with this one. If it takes a turn for the better I'll come back and update my review. But it's looking pretty grim right now.....
