    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.

    Story
    What would have made The Jakarta Pandemic better?

    Being less liberal, also too much useless detail and not enough storyline.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Steven Konkoly again?

    Only if you pay for it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end.


    Any additional comments?

    The main character and his family are vegetarian, anti-gun, NRA, conservative and fox news; but he is still a prepper for some reason.
    There are too many times he goes out of his way to bash the right and how stupid it is before switching to "Good Morning America" and "The today show" for "real" news.

    The story is very full of descriptions of useless things like; how he carries a cutting knife in a reverse commando grip and edges around the kitchen never exposing his wife to the blade before he cuts vegetables for a meal and light on details regarding the actual pandemic!

    Lastly there is how unrealistic much of the story is. Example: Three thugs are ransacking his house and have roughed up his wife. He comes home and yells at them about how much trouble they are going to be in after he calls the police upstairs. They then bumble and argue like the 3 stooges while he goes up stairs, calms the kids, goes to the bedroom closet where a shotgun is kept under some blankets on the shelf. Then goes to a different area where the key to the trigger lock is kept, walks to a 3rd location where the shells are locked up, decides not to load the shot gun anyway (for safety) all while the 3 stooges are still arguing. ect. Basically many things happen in a way a liberal thinks they would, not the way they would happen in real life.
