Interesting

A world wide event is changing everything, and the main characters are all stuck on a ship with no hope of seeing this through. I really like this story, the author does a great job setting up all the different mini disasters that take place on the ship. His use of the word "resolute" is obnoxious, and there is a bit at the end that's a little dumb, but other than that a good read.

Fascinating!

This book was a great mix of our greatest fears (potential end of humanity, apocalyptic events) and science. I loved it.
The story moved well and was beautifully narrated.

Authors have a future in Network TV

Think Zoo, The Last Ship and the rest of fictional melodrama network drivel and it's in this book.

1. If there is an illogical/stupid decision to make. Every character will make it.
2. Dire, vital information that should/must be shared and could be done so in one sentence??
Yup, "I'll tell you/them later"
3. Author hubris. Let's consult a fiction author for his outside the box thinking...
4. Embellishment of the mundane to fill space/time. No we the readers/listeners do not need nor care about the inner layout of a ferrets box.

*The only thing missing at the 1/3rd mark is a "Plucky kid" who is also a computer hacker because they modded their skins in Fortenight

very enjoyable.

nice, enjoyable apocalyptic story with a different take. not only in place and setting, on a cruise ship, but in storyline and development. never got boring. action from beginning to end, with believable characters and relationships.

ok read, intresting change of events and scenarios

took a while to finish, good storyline but not riveting. I did like the plausible theory on the introduction of the "disease".

Garbage

I’ve had audible for several years now, and have had my share of bad books, but this one? Save your money for something slightly more realistic!
Even I who am not American could write a better story. This book goes from bad to worse quicker than you can bat an eyelash. Not a morsel of hope at all throughout. I’ve got a couple hours left of this book, and am finishing it just because.
As I said; save your money. Find something else to listen to.

Bad ending

The story line wasn't too bad until you reach the end. Hated, and I do mean Hated the end
