H10N1 by M.R. Cornelius

It happened. The pandemic was worse than predicted.  Korean Flu killing at a rapid pace after some people went into heavily populated areas and sprayed the flu around like perfume.  Fires, looting and killing became a way of life.  Hugs incinerators were set up to deal with all of the dead.  A suicide hotline was set up to HELP people commit suicide before the flu killed them.  Taeya Sanchez was an epidemiologist with the CDC.  She'd been asked to come to New York to work as a doctor sorting people. Those who were going to die from the flu. Those who were clean and those who showed symptoms. She'd reached her limit of patience with the doctor in charge and went head to head with him. Taeya knew he was going to fire her. There was no where left to go. She begins to plan her escape to the Biosphere where her friend was living.  She could make it. Then something unexpected happens.

The realistic story makes you stop and think.  It's hard to imagine our world becoming what is described in this book, yet it is very plausible.  I found this book informative, thought provoking and almost a guide.  This book is one that will make you reevaluate where you are now in your life and how to prepare for such an event.  H10N1 shows us just how easily something of this magnitude could happen and set our world back centuries.  The human race would start from scratch again. 

I didn't find anything wrong with this book. On the contrary the author did a fabulous job with it. The subject matter could be handled in many ways but I feel this was done in a responsible way.

I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because it blew me away to think of our modern world going dark.
