Publisher's Summary

The Preppers were right. And the time is now.

The Blue Plague came roaring out of the Congo and into the United States - and it can't be stopped. The Infected become violently insane and impossibly strong. They're not zombies - no, that would be too easy - they're something much worse. The Infected are violent and unstoppable, but they can think. They can heal from most wounds. And worst of all - they can reproduce.

Bruce, Debbie, Mike, and Nancy have been preparing for the worst for years. There's nothing to do but bug out - and they know exactly where to go. But on the arduous journey to reach the sanctuary of their farm, they confront thousands of The Infected. Along the way they make some invaluable new friends, and together, the emboldened troop kicks the hell out of the Infected - and the equally dangerous marauders who are willing to murder anyone in their way.

Join Bruce, Mike, and their newfound friends as they battle their way across Infected Louisiana, thwarting every foe imaginable in order to reach the sanctuary of their farm.

Blue Plague Book One: The Fall is a survivalist adventure filled with courage and betrayal, tragedy and hope.

Story line very good. Performance Awful. Sad.

Would you try another book from Thomas A. Watson and/or Eric Davidson?

I have read The Forgotten Forbidden America series and The Dark Titan series. Both Series had very good narrators. I'm surprised more care was not taken to secure a talented narrator.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Bruce and Mike.

Would you be willing to try another one of Eric Davidson’s performances?

No.

Do you think Blue Plague: The Fall needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes with a different narrator. Personally I don't enjoy listening to Eric Davidson.

Bad narrator

If you are going to use the same narrator for the rest of the series, don’t bother. He is the worst!!

Book good, difficult to listen to.

I liked the story very much. I nearly stopped as I couldn’t stand the voice reading. Irritating and took away from the story.

At first I thought character development was overdone but not so-I feel like I know each person and it was so real! Fantastic story idea!

love this story

This was the first Thomas Watson book I ever read and fell in love with the series and the author. the only problem is the narrator for the series, I know this has nothing to do with the Watson's so buy their books and listen to their other series. read all of Blue Plague series.

Not sure which is worse the story or the narration. I didn’t even make it 30 minutes in and couldn’t take any more

Horrible narrator!

Narrator sounded like a cheesy 80s game show host. This was a decent zombie book but this guy voice acting needs hella work.

good book, ok narrator

I like this series of books. But the narrator on this book could be a little dry at times. He has a very deep voice but it does not lend itself to listening to for a long time. I hope very much that they do the rest of the series but maybe use a different narrator

Great book!

Wow, loved this book and bummed that the rest of the series isn't on audible yet. I might have to actually break down and actually read! The characters are great and well thought out. The narrarator did a great job sucking me into the book and into the characters lives.

Loved the Story

I loved the story. I just had a hard time with the narrators voice. It was distracting and took away from the story line. I listen to a lot of audio books and if the voice is not there it is a hard book to listen to. I have listened to it 3 times now but the voice makes it hard.

Pushing the boundaries of Humanity

What made the experience of listening to Blue Plague: The Fall the most enjoyable?

The way society falls apart and the heroes that arise to help and guide and rebuild society.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blue Plague: The Fall?

The way the author went to explain how the initial spread was helped by humanitarian aid workers not wanting to be inconvenienced by border protections put in place. I think the key words were don't tell the authorities because they will quarantine you. So lets lie so we are not inconvenienced "sorry world"

What didn’t you like about Eric Davidson’s performance?

I am sorry this narrator did not do this book any favors, his voice tone makes listening to this story a struggle. I listened to the Dark Titan series by the same author and the narrator was a million percent better and did the book justice. This narrator is killing this book. The only reason I persevered and put up with it was because of the Dark titan series. I could not try a second time unless I want the monotone droll to to put me to sleep.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No not really. I liked the humanity aspect, a bit exaggerated was the fact that every person of authority Police/Army were suddenly bloodless unfeeling killers. Try Dark Titans it is much better.

Any additional comments?

No way could I struggle through trying to listen to this narrator a second time "sorry"
