The Michaluk Virus is loose. In the heart of Atlanta, the virus has escaped the CDC, and its effects are widespread and devastating. The virus infects nearly everyone in its path, turning much of the population of the southeastern United States into homicidal cannibals. As society rapidly crumbles under the hordes of infected, three people - Ethan Bennett, a Memphis police officer; Cade Alton, his best friend and former IDF sharpshooter; and Brandt Evans, a lieutenant in the US Marines - band together against the oncoming crush of death and terror sweeping across the world. As Cade, Brandt, and Ethan hole up in safe houses, others begin to join them in their bid for survival. When the infected attack and they’re forced to flee, one departs to Memphis in search of answers while the others escape south to Biloxi, where they encounter more danger than they bargained for. And in Memphis, the answers that one man finds are the last answers he wanted, answers that herald a horrific possibility that there may be more to this virus than first suspected.
Buy it. Good read !!
I enjoyed it.
The Becoming is full of fast and furious action.
I bought this audiobook because i liked the narrator from other books i have downloaded( The Remaining series). Unfortunately even he could not make this book listenable. 2 hours into it and i give up. For instance when the main character kills her infected boyfriend she seems not too shocked. Unrealistic situations and reactions from the characters. Also the writer continually states the characters eye color, odd. For example"his green eyes looked around" "her blue eyes looked to the tv again". I mean in the two hours i listened i must have heard it 12 times. Perhaps this book is meant for some female readers, due to its hugging and crying references over and over... Blah...
I recommend The Remaining,Infection,Day By Day.
