Book Review: The Jakarta Pandemic by Steven Konkoly


Description from Goodreads:

THE DEADLIEST PANDEMIC FLU IN HISTORY IS BEARING DOWN ON NEW ENGLAND, AND ALEX FLETCHER HAS A BIG PROBLEM...

HIS FAMILY IS PREPARED, BUT NOBODY ELSE IS.

AS THE FLU SPREADS AND THE WINTER INTENSIFIES...

THE FOOD TRUCKS STOP, HOSPITALS TURN AWAY THE SICK, AND CITIES START TO FALL APART. POWER PLANTS WILL START TO TRIP OFFLINE WITHIN WEEKS.

ALEX'S NEIGHBORS ARE STARTING TO GET SICK, AND THEY'RE STARTING TO GET HUNGRY. SOME OF THEM ARE GETTING ANGRY...

ALEX'S PROBLEM IS ABOUT TO EXPLODE. 

My Thoughts:
WOW!!! This book is amazing! One of the best books I've read in the genre. Alex is a great main character, and he is definitely someone you'd want on your team. The pandemic flu spreads very quickly in this book and Alex has his family fully prepared to ride it out within his own home. Not everything goes according to plan and evil comes out in full force when people are desperate. This book makes you think of all of the what if's and what would you do, given a situation like this. It is real, very real, and you will be on the edge of your seat throughout most of this book waiting to see what happens next. I highly recommend you go out and buy this book ASAP if you want to read a great pandemic thriller! $3.99 for Nook and Kindle.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
