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. He particularly knows that strict isolation is the only guaranteed way to protect his family from the new disease.
With his family and home prepared for an extended period of seclusion, Alex has few real concerns about the growing pandemic. But as the deadliest pandemic in human history ravages northern New England, and starts to unravel the fabric of their Maine neighborhood, he starts to realize that the flu itself is the least of his problems.
A mounting scarcity of food and critical supplies turns most of the neighbors against him, and Alex is forced to confront their unexpected hostility before it goes too far. Just when he thinks it can't get any worse, the very face of human evil arrives on Durham Rd and threatens to destroy them all. Alex and his few remaining friends band together to protect the neighborhood from a threat far deadlier than the flu, as they edge closer to the inevitable confrontation that will test the limits of their humanity.

Completely dragged out, boring, outdated story...also the performance wasn't great. Book seemed as though it was written by a Liberal, Anti Gun, Anti War author, whom wanted to write a survivalist novel. Really slow, no action, characters were forced...no useful info for preparedness.
Possibly. I think I would have enjoyed the book more of there was a different narrator.
I felt cheated.
It was entertaining enough. But the narration made it very difficult to get through. There was no emotion in his voice.
Yes...I have listened to it three times and it is a great story. It is an interesting perspective on how "every day America" would react and shows why you should hold off on your gut reaction to some situations. Ted was a great character to hate.
Overall reaction by the characters and the national reaction
Voice inflection and natural story telling ability. I am currently looking for more of his work.
The collection of the corporate supplies by Ted.
Well worth the credit.
Leftist idiots, the clown promotes CNN, and MSNBC while knocking Fox. CNN and especially NBC are the most disreputable news staions out there. He also has warped ideas about the use of guns and deadly force. The story is SOS.
nothing by this author
he did ok
disappoinment and anger
Keep the politiocs out of a half way ok novel, Yhe politics made no sense and were a mahjor distraction.
Had to put this one down for a bit, unfinished. If I ever get back to it, I will contact Audible to delete my existing review (thanks Audi) and write a new one. Save a credit on this one.
FIRST OF ALL LET ME SAY THAT THIS BOOK COULD HAVE BEEN GREAT..... IT WAS ONLY GOOD FOR TWO REASONS.... FIRST, TO MUCH TIME SPENT ON STORY (DRAMA) LEADING UP TO CONFLICT WITH BAD GUYS. SECOND "KATE" WHINES SO MUCH AND BRINGS SO MUCH DRAMA THAT YOU DREAD HEARING HER CHARACTER. EVERYTIME SHE SAID SOMETHING OUT OF HER PIE HOLE IT MAKE THE LISTNER CRINGE.
THAT SAID THE NEXT BOOK SHOULD BE GOOD....GREAT, IF THE AUTHOR DOES NOT GO BACK INTO THE FIRST BOOK TO MUCH TO CATCH A NEW READER UP...
