~Epub ☧ The Outbreak ♡ Mankind is no longer at the top of the food chainThe Sixth Extinction is an apocalyptic tale about a pandemic that sweeps the globe, decimating the human race, leaving humanity struggling to survive Within three weeks everything has changed Social structure has collapsed The police are non existent, and the army concentrates on the cities Gangs of yobs rule the streets It becomes everyone for themselvesThe story follows three different people, and their journeys of self discovery through the changing worldNoah Morgan is just an average twenty one year old He has no aspirations in life, no girlfriend, few friends, and a dead end job Red is a nineteen year old female runaway, with a sad past and a disturbing secret Together they leave behind everything they have ever known, looking for a safe havenDoctor Melanie Lazaro is working around the clock, under military supervision, in Exeter University s Biomedical Sciences Department, trying to create a cure for the new pandemic that is turning humans back to their primordial roots, creating mindless killing machines with only one purpose to eat This book was very fantastic. First in the series, a short book with a potentially interesting story The downfall of this book is the lack of editing A number of mistakes that I find frustrating.As the book was so short I haven t got a feel for the characters as yet and unfortunately their speech feels very stilted and unnatural That being said, I am going to keep reading the series as I am interested in what is going to happen 2 stars and with editing could have scored 3. Extremely Short ReadThe writing in this story isn t badI just didn t particularly care for the story Maybe the remainder of the series improves on the things I didn t care for but I don t want to buy the rest of a full book over the course of 5 or 6 mini books to find out. The story is entertaining and gripping It s short enough to swallow whenever you have a couple of hours free A train ride or a rainy afternoon The characters, while not exactly deeply complex there s not really enough time for them to be are decent enough to keep us interested The zombie origin story is interesting, too Different from most.But the writing is awful.Not just mistakes that a good

interesting, too Different from most.But the writing is awful.Not just mistakes that a good proof read would have picked up, but the author doesn t seem to understand the possessive apostrophe He doesn t use contractions, either It s all does not , will not and would not People don t talk or think like that, it serves to make the writing clunky and make it flow like a river of bricks Word choice is poor in places, and it seems the author didn t read the finished product as it lacks the kind of polish a book gains in proofs and re writes.That said, it sucks you in like a Dyson hoover.It s almost painful reading some of this, due to mistakes and badly worded sentences, but you have to keep reading to find out what happens.I ll be reading the others in the series to find out what happens, but I ll be re writing some of it in my head as I go.Excellent plotting, subpar writing Worth a read as long as it stays under 1 The Sixth Extinction Part One Outbreakby Glen JohnsonIn Marolambo, Madagascar, nine sick loggers are airlifted out to a hospital and the epidemic begins In three weeks, the disease has traversed the world and Great Britain is quarantined with very little service from anything still around They still have power though and a television will work, but only a looping broadcast of news a week old is being shown The world is coming to an end And worse than that, zombies are on the loose It is on The Sixth Extinction Part One Outbreakby Glen JohnsonIn Marolambo, Madagascar, nine sick loggers are airlifted out to a hospital and the epidemic begins In three weeks, the disease has traversed the world and Great Britain is quarantined with very little service from anything still around They still have power though and a television will work, but only a looping broadcast of news a week old is being shown The world is coming to an end And worse than that, zombies are on the loose It is one thing to be sick, but being sick and having to run from zombies is bound to be worse This is not an epidemic, but a pandemic I wonder what the difference is The main character is Noah and the setting of the book is in some town in England where a very few survivors are trying to figure out what to do next Noah scavenges food from some stores in the neighborhood and has only an air rifle that shoots pellets Remember in England there are severe gun laws and not a whole lot of gun shops can be found So he has to make do with a box full of pellets.Looting begins in the cities and people are stealing televisions and blue ray players, but what in the world for What are they going to watch Soon the looting changes to can foods and whatever else is left that is edible Of course the zombies find plenty of things that are edible, the survivors Noah finds a girl hiding out in a small building and together they try to survive Some zombies come calling and he gets trapped in a nearby building But then the surprise comes This is a serial novel and ends with To Be Continued I just hate it when I accidentally read one of these books Not sure if I want to by the next volume or not when I already have a hundred in my book queue to catch up on Maybe next year Tis was a good book though even if it was too short I do like zombie books though, so maybe I will pick it up sooner than later My prediction is that zombie books are going to be evenpopular after this summer when the blockbuster movie World War Z comes out This one will be starring Brad Pitt and is based upon the bestselling book by the same name You can guess what the Z stands for in that title Going to be a good one An alternative perspective on the zombie apocalypse The style, mixing the story of 5 characters 3 central in overlapping chapters kept it vibrant and held your attention The focus on the breakdown in society felt realistic, although a little throw away at times, with some stereotyping The conclusion was a little out there , pushing the boundaries of belief, but hey, it s the zombie apocalypse, artistic licence can forgive this Unfortunately, this is where the praise ends.I always look for An alternative perspective on the zombie apocalypse The style,

doing well and this story would benefit from being subjected to a decent editor s close scrutiny Every couple of pages there was a grammatical or a spelling error Every time one glared out of the text I found myself increasingly frustrated by the distraction So much so, that I can t recommend this book as a diamond in the rough, I m afraid it s just a piece of broken glass, which is a shame, because it could have been much I got this story by an accident, when it was Kindle Daily Deals It s not a book, just a short story, which I ve read in two hours First few chapters are boring, then it

Very annoying.Finished up to part two.Good engaging read.A few spelling mistakes that are distracting and liberal use of the word guttural is annoying but great lead characters and looking forward to the rest of the book.
