Eminent Plague

About

Eminent Plague
by Don Lowell

After years of staggering from one global disaster to the next, humanity faces what will perhaps be its final enemy: the epidemic “Heavy” and its aftermath. Aided by human folly, apathy, and arrogance, the Heavy has wiped out most of the planet’s population, and with it, all semblance of civilization. A few, scattered bands of survivors are left to pick up the pieces and rebuild—if they can.

Told from the viewpoint of one of the surviving groups’ leaders, Eminent Plague is a fascinating study of courage and cruelty in the face of nearly unimaginable hardship. Don Lowell paints an intricate picture of the plague’s survivors, struggling to overcome the ever-present threats of starvation and disease, and in the process creating the beginnings of a new, primitive society. But their modest success draws brutal bands of human predators, intent on plundering their hard-won resources and on burning and killing everything else—indifferent to humanity’s long-term survival. In Eminent Plague, humans overcome disease, starvation, and anarchy…but can they survive human stupidity?

My Review

After reading this book I wonder what would really happen is something like actually happened.  This book makes you think about society and how different things could be.  I feel that what happens in this book could really happen and that most people would act like this if society fell apart.  Once I start this book I couldn’t put it down.  I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read books about rebuilding after society falls apart.

FTC-I received this book for free in exchange for my review.  The opinions are 100% my own.
