Publishers Description: A virus, created by the smartest minds in the United States government, which is meant to target male adults in times of war, is accidentally released before testing is complete. Within weeks six billion people are eliminated from the world. The only survivors are prepubescent children.

Review: The beginning of this novel is “The Andromeda Strain” meets “The Blue Lagoon” where Morgan and Andy are so fucking hot they could be Super-models on a beach….er, their beach in Bermuda. Andy’s Dad was a Doctor (she inherited his skills) and her mom was a first-chair concert cellist. REALLY??? Then everyone dies.

After sailing 600 miles to the mainland because Charlie, Morgan’s brother is a CERTIFIED GENIUS the novel morphs again, reminding you of  “Mad Max, Beyond Thunderdork” meeting “The Hunger Games”. Again, everyone they meet (the oldest people are eighteen) are hotter than a half-fucked foxes and constantly brush their hair back or think longingly of showers and food. So they go here and there, get into scrapes, get out of scrapes and generally behave like retarded hormonal adults (teenagers).

I could go on but time is a fleeting thing not to be wasted. If you like pina colladas, and getting caught in the rain, and the sound of the ocean…..buy this. If not, then run screaming like there are really fast zombies after you and not the slow shuffling, moaning type.

 

 

Don’t forget the ever pervasive theme of guns are bad and everyone hates inanimate objects but use them cause they have to. HUH?
