Among the dead is a post-apocalyptic action story about a pandemic that has taken over the world. A virus has taken over humans changing their behavior, making them violent and uncontrollable. Samantha, one of the lucky ones who managed to remain unaffected, travels to upstate New York, searching for her husband. On her way, she meets Jason, and they become friends. With both having strong reasons to survive, the story relishes on an adventure that truly engages your mind.
The science fictional story felt somehow relevant to the worldwide problem we are facing today. The author had thought through every detail of how realistically the environmental impact was going to be. By shutting down everything and taking away the cell phones and electricity, he really made the reader think deeper about human connection, humanity, and survival.
I particularly enjoyed the relationship between Jason and Samantha. Both married, in love, and were trying to survive by not getting infected. The pace was semi-fast and had a good flow to it. It was engaging and very well thought through.
I believe anyone who likes to read science fiction, post-apocalyptical stories would enjoy this one. I look forward to reading more from this author.Tweet
