    Book Review: The Jakarta Pandemic

    The Jakarta Pandemic: A Post Apocalyptic/Dystopian Thriller


    I read a lot of apocalyptic and post apocalyptic fiction.
    Much of it is unimpressive featuring implausible plots. people not behaving or performing like real people (like all those novels where invariably the 12 or 13 year old daughter rises to turn into the biggest warrior of the group w/ steely nerves paired with uncanny shooting prowess, always says the most profound stuff, while her adult father is barely keeping up with events etc etc.)


    Every once in a while however I stumble on a real gem that combines plausible scenario with realistic behavior by people.


    This is one of the very few. .......even though it starts real slow and the first couple chapters seem a bit like a how-to for preppers..but otherwise 5 Stars


    Here is the Amazon link:

    Be sure to check the intro "Look inisde" which lets you read the first Chapter and a half.


    Here is a screenshot of the Intro (Chapter 1 starts w/ the events that lead up to this scene)
    "In the end we all just play the roles given us... Sometimes they dont fit so well,... but I guess we make do."

    I read the first 5 or 6 chapters, which are part of the free peek, and it looks interesting.

    Whether likely or not, these kinds of apocalypse books always make you think.
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.
