Publisher's Summary

As an agent of the Department of Advance Analysis, she's one of a handful of people who knows about the spread of a new virus - one she believes will wipe out mankind. With her bosses in denial, she flies to New York to get her ex-fiancé, Chip, to safety. But he's already been scooped up and quarantined - and so has his adopted daughter. Pursued by her own agency, Ellie will stop at nothing to break Chip out before the virus claims them all.

Sets up the stories nicely

A good short story that sets the scene nicely for breakers (although through half of breakers they don’t make an appearance so I hope we hear what happens to the characters at some point). It is a short story so you don’t get the full picture, but if you liked Stephen King’s “The Stand” I would suggest you pick this up as well.

Mr. Chase does a great job with the narration.

excillent

Very good start of a series. The characters are kept simple, the plot simple, but the telling of the story is where this stories shines.

How it all began

Would you consider the audio edition of Outcome to be better than the print version?

Probably since I don't like to physically read. I am a good listener though.

What did you like best about this story?

It introduces the series since this is book 0.5. I read all but book 5 before listening to this book. (Book 4 has ties to this book.)

Have you listened to any of Ray Chase’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ray Chase is great. I need to check on other books he has narrated.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Enjoy life while you can. Without electricity, quality of life will degrade quickly.

Any additional comments?

I love the series. I am glad I decided to read the series. As I start on the last book, I wish there was another book in the works.

listening to Ray Chase is barely ok

Is there anything you would change about this book?

listening to Ray Chase is like trying to watch your favorite action movie with a Kenny G sound track.

Why didn't she use her gun?

Every male chauvinist should read/listen to this story, as they couldn't help but understand why women have complained about their treatment in literature, as brainless bimbos to be rescued by the hero. Chimp (spelt correctly) is so annoying as a person, I wanted our heroine to shoot him in the head before it was half way through. There is no way someone so pathetic and indecisive would ever be someone as special as a paramedic. His desire to save his adoptive daughter is his only redeeming character. The trouble is. the rest of the series is really good. so don't read/listen to this before the main story, I was so lucky this is how I was introduced to them.
