REVIEW Broken World Broken World #1 107 ì A story of survival and horror friendship and prejudice Broken World will take you on an emotional journey that will leave you wanting When a deadly virus sweeps the country Vivian Thomas sets out for California in hopes of seeing the daughter she gave up for adoption But when her car breaks down she’s faced?s than kindness but she’s prepared to do whatever it takes to reach her daughter The virus is spreading and by the time the group makes it to California most of the population has been wiped out When the dead start coming back Vivian and the others realize that no electricity or running water are the least of their concerns Now Vivian must learn how to be a mom under the most frightening circumstances cope with Angus’s aggressive. A raging viral infection breaks out in the densely populated Northeast corridor Killing an estimated 85% of everyone infected there is no cure Travel is severely curtailed Schools businesses and non essential services are shut down completely Despite these efforts the virus breaks out spreading inexorably across the country It is in this setting about six seven weeks after the initial outbreak that Vivian decides to cash in her meager savings and drive across the country to California Four years ago she gave up her newborn daughter for adoption If she is going to die of this new plague she wants to see her daughter one last time With this tenuous connection to California and a certificate that guarantees that she is infection free she hits the roadBroken World does an excellent job of capturing the slow slide from modern civilization Things are breaking down fast Some places aren't open at all others are manned by a skeleton crew Armed soldiers man check points carefully screening everyone Desperate travelers out of money and options are confronted by suspicious locals fearful of the contagion Vivian makes it about half way before things begin to go south She passes the first body Then her car dies She is picked up by two red necks Axl and Angus The two men appear than mildly interest in her ahem assets and she isn't sure that accepting a ride with them is a good idea Fortunately it turns out that these two guys are actually pretty decent if crude guys They too are headed for California and they are willing to help her out And unlike Vivian they are ready for the end of the world with loads of camping gear food and weapons Things continue to deteriorate They pass corpses including disturbingly the bodies of soldiers at a check point They also encounter stragglers and with a few companions they push west By the time they make it to California the streets and highways are just about deserted Survivors seem tentative and hesitant somehow Everyone is just shell shocked Remember 85% death rateAt the half way point Vivian and the guys reach her daughter's house and low and behold Emily is alive terrified but alive Her mom and dad were not so fortunate and lie rotting in their bed It is right about here that the story begins to shift from a plague story to a zombie plague story While rescuing Emily Vivian swears she saw the girl's adoptive mother dead move a finger Surely she imagined that Then when they make it to San Francisco they encounter people aimlessly shambling around These clearly ill people are also strangely aggressive attacking Vivian and crew The word zombie is used for the first timeHoled up in a hotel they find survivors including Michael a billionaire who offers them hope He has the code to a secret bunker outside of Las Vegas that is stocked to supply 50 people with everything they could want for five years It sounds too good to be true but it is all they have so they hightail it out of SF and head for Vegas The story ends or less with a deadly shoot out against the undead outside the bunker as they race to escape I liked this book Far too often stories of the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse start AFTER the main event To me the most interesting part of the story is

This review can also be found at Carole's Randon Life in BooksWell this was fantastic I am finding that I like post apocalyptic stories and these days I have come across a few recommendations for this series and put it on my wishlist but never got around to it until now This was such an entertaining listen Once I got started with this book I didn't want to stop I am so glad that I finally gave this one a tryVivian is making her way to California The world is in shambles due to a recent virus outbreak that threatening the lives of everyone across the country She is on a uest to check on the daughter she gave up for adoption When her car breaks down she is helped out by a somewhat suspicious pair of brothers And this is only the start of her journeyOne of the things that I loved about this book was the characters I really felt like I got to know Vivian and the rest of her group over the course of this story and importantly I grew to care about them There were a few characters that my opinion of completely changed during the course of the story I liked that we saw these characters evolve and learn to trust each other The characters all felt so real to me and I almost felt like I was on this journey with themI thought that this story was really exciting I like it when a book shows how an outbreak starts It is so much fun getting a chance to be with the characters while they figure out what is really happening There are some pretty intense moments in this book and some other heartbreaking moments I think that the author did a great job of keeping things interesting and setting a nice pace for the storyHillary Huber did a great job with the narration There is a pretty diverse cast of characters in this book and she did a fantastic job of making them each sound distinctive She was able to bring a lot of emotion into the story and brought the excitement level up a notch She had a very nice voice that was easy to listen to for hours at a timeI would highly recommend this book to fans of post apocalyptic stories I thought that this book really gave the series a great start with its wonderful characters and exciting story I can't wait to get started on the next book I received a review copy of this audiobook from the authorInitial ThoughtsThis was awesome This book was probably 45 stars but I am rounding up for now I loved the fact that the story started as all of the problems started I thought it was fun to figure out what was really going on along with the characters The characters were very well done and a few of them surprised me before the end of the book The narration was really well done
