The formatting for the Kindle was fine. The grammar mistakes were minimal.Would I recommend this to others? I would because it was overall a good story.
Again, it's an okay book, but if you read a lot of this type of fiction, you'll already know how it goes before you read the first sentence. Buy it if you like, but prepare for the expected.
Dr. Taeya Sanchez works for the CDC and when the flu virus H10N1 started spreading all across the world. The virus is believed to have started in North Korea. Taeya while working for the CDC has been stationed at a New York hospital the only one still in operation. Her job is to sort out the patients that may or may not survive. Taeya goes head to head with her boss because of what he says is best for the patients that Taeya doesn't agree with. When she is dismiss from her duties she knows it is a matter before she is fired. She is no mood to wait for that confrontation much less the consequences. So she decides to pack her bags and as they say "get the hell out of dodge". She has a friend who lives in an experimental bio dome in Arizona. Her friend is a member of a scientific team who all live in the dome trying to stay alive.
Taeya never expects to run into anyone when she makes her escape at midnight but she runs into a guy, Rick DeAngelo who drives a truck for the hospital looking for supplies and whatever else you make need. Rick has been planning his trip for a while now gathering up all the supplies he will need for his trip across country to his friends place in Arkansas who live off the land. Rick and Taeya are not happy at all about their meeting under the circumstances. But Rick can't bring himself to leave her to her own defenses knowing what he does about the people who are in charge at the hospital. He knows they will track her down and bring her back.
Rick and Taeya make their journey across the country not fighting zombies as with most apocalyptic novels but they do have to fight the ones who are still alive. Fighting for their own lives in some cases as well as fighting for their supplies and weapons. Rick and Taeya for the most part are usually bickering back and forth among themselves. They each have their own things in their past that they each have to deal with in their own way. But they each have to lean on the other one to stay alive. In a world where you don't know who you can trust you still have to have someone who will cover your back for you.
I absolutely enjoyed reading H10N1 it is an amazing novel about the apocalyptic. I loved reading that world ended with a virus and not a zombie outbreak. Now don't get me wrong I still love me some zombies but H10N1 was a refreshing breath taker that keeps you turning those pages as fast as possible. I loved the bio dome and all their experiments and that each person had their own job or part that they had to do to help out and earn their way.
While I am pretty sure the world would not end with zombies but is possible. I do believe that the world could end with a flu virus or any type of virus as bio weapon or just as an outbreak weather by accident or not. If the world did end with a virus then I think that there would be looters and thieves whom we would have to defend ourselves from just as M.R. Cornelius has written it in H10N1.
If you have not read H10N1 then I highly suggest that you do that is if you like reading apocalyptic books. Well even if you don't and have been considering it then H10N1 would be a great book to start with. I know M.R. Cornelius has thoroughly did her research on viruses among other things in writing H10N1 and who knows you may just learn something while reading a great book.
Most of the books I've been reading lately had paranormal elements in the story, so reading "H10 N1" which has no supernatural creatures or beings or anything paranormal in the story line, was a welcome relief. The plot is quite original in that the virus in this story was manmade and spread by the Koreans. What made it an even more gripping and nerve-wracking read is the frighteningly real possibility that this could happen in the world as we know it.
Usually, in some of these post-apocalyptic novels, you'll find zombies or some form of the walking dead or undead. Not in this story. The author gets your heart racing out of control with vivid descriptions of the terrifying journey the two main characters had to undertake to get to a place of safety away from the virus; and their fight for survival along the way - from being attacked by road gangs and not being infected by carriers of the virus, to driving through a burning forest and dealing with many more heart-stopping confrontations.
I'm a big fan of explosive action in books and there's no shortage of that in this story. Think rocket launchers and gun fights, edge-of-your-seat suspense and a few unexpected plot twists, and you'll only have a slight idea of what you're letting yourself in for. My fear of rabid dogs was thoroughly preyed upon in one disturbing scene in this riveting novel. As I'm not a fan of romance books, I enjoyed that the two main characters didn't fall in love instantly, and the way they got on each other's nerves had me laughing out loud at times.
The writing flows well and the story cruises along at a comfortable pace. I very much enjoyed the author's sense of humor which was evident in the dialogue between a few of the main characters. All in all, this is a terrific novel which I won't hesitate to recommend to my family and closest friends as one of the best reads of the year.
