The government and a soda manufacturer team up to create a drug that will make people passive and agreeable.  The drug is believed to be a cure all for societies problems.

However, the drug has a major side-effect.  If used excessively, people become sick and turn into zombies.  Also, anyone that has traces of the drug in their system will turn into a zombie upon their death.

This is an excellent book.  It’s entertaining, as well as thought provoking.  The characters are relatable and it’s easy to feel wrapped up in their stories.

 

All That Remains by Hannah Holborn

The main characters in the book are a young boy that was abducted by a schizophrenic man who believes he is saving his dead brother, a stressed out cop with major family problems that is trying to locate the boy, and a woman on the run from the law, due to a felony warrant, that manages to become a hero.

The story is sad at times and will leave you despairing humanity.  However, the triumphant ending will most certainly lift your spirt.  The book is engaging and an excellent read.

Amazon has Advanced Wilderness Navigation by Jack Perry available as an ebook for free.  Before reading this book, you will need know how to use a compass and read a topographical map.

The book is short and to the point.  However, it is full of useful information.  It is easy to read and easy to understand.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys hiking, camping, or other wilderness activities.

Massive solar flares hit Earth and soak the planet in radiation.  The radiation destroys all electronic devices and kills over half of the population.  The survivors fall into two groups:

  1.  People that survived the solar flares, but the radiation scrambled their brains and turned them into mindless killing machines.
  2. People that survived the solar flares and seem to be unaffected by the radiation.  They are forced to find a way live in their new post-apocalyptic world.

I enjoyed reading this book.  The characters were interesting and relatable.  Also, the story flowed well, which made the book easy to read.
