The Alpha Plague by Michael Robertson

Michael Robertson is the author of a book series called, The Alpha Plague.  The books are about a plague that turns people into wild man-eaters, similar to a zombie.  The story is interesting and intriguing.

My only compliant, is the dialogue.  The person talking could be a doctor, a middle aged business man, or even a young women; however, the phrases and words they used were identical.  It made the conversations seem a bit weird.

Other than that, I loved it and would recommend it.

Apocalyptic Stories

I enjoy books and movies with apocalyptic themes.  The cause may vary from zombies, to alien invasion, to a plague, or even a nuclear war; however, the stories tend to share certain characteristics.

The characters are ordinary people accomplishing great things in order to survive.  They display courage and determination in the face of dire circumstances.  They overcome great odds and attempt to build a better world.

That’s why I love apocalyptic stories.

After the Cure – Book Review

The book After the Cure has a unique perspective on the zombie genre.  The story begins with a cure for the zombie plague and the rebuilding of society.

There are two main characters (one was cured from the virus that caused the plague and one survived due to an immunity to the virus).  They struggle to deal with their actions during the plague years and attempt to find those responsible for the virus, so they can be held accountable for the destruction they caused.

I really enjoyed the book.  I give it an A-
