Publisher's Summary

In a small poultry farm located in Delaney, Georgia, an antigenic shift causes the H7N9 virus - also known as the deadly bird flu virus - to jump species. The contagion burns through everything in its path despite the federal government’s ham-handed efforts to mask the mutated virus’ true nature. Its unprecedented mortality rate soon paralyzes the nation - paving the way for martial law to be established across the country. 

More than 1,000 miles away at a maximum security penitentiary south of Tucson, Arizona, inmate Teddy Sanders’ world of structure and routine crumbles to dust, as the virus starts spreading within the confines of the prison’s walls. As circumstances force Teddy to step out of his comfort zone and form precarious new alliances, will he be able to adapt and survive or will he succumb to the inherent dangers of the new world?

Narrator about ruins it

I'm finding this really hard. The premise is plausible, the story starts kind of compelling, but the narrator is ruining this for me. Why does he have to draw out certain words? Like "wanted-uh" or "look-ed-uh". His tone doesn't help and he doesn't seem to modulate at all. It's almost like anyone with a deeper voice thinks they can just gravel through a book and we'll love it. Sorry, not the way it works. Especially if you have to say a "D" sound like so enunciated-uh that it's distracting tot the story. Way too much happens in this for me to start to care about the characters. More development would've helped.
