Book Review-Infection: A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Novel (Sympatico Syndrome Book 1)-M.P. McDonald

Tuesday, June 26, 2018

Most of the really bad diseases that are with us today--and there are many--usually people can tell they are getting sick and can go for help. But what if a disease appeared where the person experienced euphoria-wanting noting but to dance and sing and have a party? That's what occurs in this novel. Where the disease came from no one knows--or if they do--they sure are not telling!

Cole Evans is an epidemiologist who had previously worked in Africa with Ebola and other horrible diseases. Cole's wife died and he had only his son--he decided to retire. A woman he met there was still with the CDC. Then he got a phone call from her telling him to pack up his family and get somewhere-somewhere safe. This disease was spreading like wildfire. There was no time to lose!!

Cole called his son and told him to meet at the isolated island--He then went to his brother's house and told them to pack up. Obviously they gave him a hard time--but did as he requested. The disease was hitting his neighborhood as they were getting ready to leave.

Off they drove-caravan style--Cole hoping that his son made it!

Cole's son had quite the adventure! They all picked up people along the way.

Not everything is happily ever after.

But will they survive the isolation? Another cliff hanger--------------

This had me gulping and wondering if I would be able to avoid contamination of this devastating disease--would I be strong enough to survive with no public services?

As for isolation-----well I better read book 2 to find out what could possibly happen then.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

When the United States crumbles, and services stop, there's only one thing to do...take your family and run.

The countdown to the end of the world begins silently.
No one realizes there's a deadly illness spreading like wildfire until it's too late. With few symptoms, victims literally drop dead after a brief surge of energy. Within days, it tears through the population of the United States.

Now, faced with the very real possibility of extinction of the human race, Cole Evans has only one chance to save his family and survive: a safe haven on an isolated, hard to reach island.

Can he convince his brother that the danger is real and that there's enough space for his family as well?But can they all reach the island before the lights go out for them...forever?

Well this is disturbing, mind boggling even. I'm intrigued to find out HOW this new disease came about and if someone is holding back a cure. I'm not a conspiracy theorist at all but, I do believe something is going on with our health care in one way or another. As for me if I were there I'd die.
