Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kept me turning the pages This was an interesting look at a dystopian world where you see different reactions to a disastrous "infection". Each of the main characters reacts differently, but they must collaborate to save themselves, so their interactions add to the survival story. I got through it pretty quickly as I wanted to know what happened, but I found the end a bit disappointing. I still give it 4 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A story unlike any other This is a story about relationship and rebirth- primarily between a teacher and her student. It is also a story that defines exactly what qualities define a human experience. On a more spiritual level, it is a story of what comes next - how we let go and how we evolve. It is a trip into the heart of a monster; of our worst fears, of being overcome and invaded by that which we are ignorant. There is much to learn here and much to fear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read Well written. On the edge of your seat entertainment but not too Hollywood. Just the right length. Highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It has its moments. It starts out strong, then I found it to be mostly slow with strong points littered throughout. I was mostly satisfied with the ending, but then once I realized I was done reading the book, I felt a sense of relief that I wouldn't have to read it anymore. I will not think about this book again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crawling spiders It took a while before I realized what was going on in the camp, but when I did ,I had spiders crawling up and down my back. They made an appearance again in the final chapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down I really enjoyed the story. It was very original and I did not see the end coming. I couldn't put it down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starts With a Bang! I was attracted to this book because of what seemed to be a literary treatment of a paranormal subject matter (don't want to give it away), and that's exactly what I got. The book starts with a bang, and I read the first 5 chapters in one sitting. I find it meandered a little in the middle, but it had a very clever ending!
