I personally do not have a set genre that I will read book's from. I will admit that I like certain genre's more than others but I do not have a personal favorite. I will admit that this is book is in one of my favorite genre so the follow review may be a little bias if so please forgive me.

H10N1 starts out with Dr. Sanchez who is an epidemiologist. She has works with the CDC and World Health Organization. She is a doctor who has traveled the world when an outbreak of a disease has gone in to chaos. She use to have a husband that she would follow around but he was killed in one of the third world countries that they were trying to help.

Dr. Sanchez or Taeya is one of those people who does not like the people in authority that does not care about the underdog. She is one of those people who will stand up and fight authority figures. She sometimes let's her anger get the better of her in an argument. This time she has let that control her to where she has lost her position at an emergency facility in New York.

Taeya is introduced to Rick DeAngelo. Rick is one of those people that can aquire any item that is wanted. He looks a little sleazy and is constantly hitting on women.

Rick has a plan. He is determined to leave the area in New York and head to Arkansas where he has friends. Rick has everything all planned out. The van that is he planning on stealing where he has it packed with supplies and has removed the tracking device. The route planned out, food and supplies. What he does not take into account is Taeya tagging along with him.

Taeya makes a last minute decision to not only leave the hospital but to leave the area. She does not want to wait for the ceremony dismal from the head doctor she has pissed off. She get all of her personal belonging together and moves on to get supplies. She meets up with Rick in the garage and he has a soft moment and allows her to go with him.

Will Rick and Taeya hit is off? Will they fall in love? What happens with the virus? Is there other people still alive that did not get the virus? Read this wonderful book to find out for yourself.

The bunnies and I give this book 4 stars.

A totally unexpected surprise wrapped up in a seemingly typical post pandemic package!

Everyone has a past, it effects how we handle what the present deals us.

In a nutshell our two protagonists end up being thrust together while trying to find a safe place to ride out the storm of a pandemic threatening to wipe out the planet.

Though sprinkled with moments expected for PA Genre, this novel focused on the human condition. The trials and struggles each have while trying to maintain their own civility in a world gone mad.

Fantastic surprise! The end was a bit rushed for me, but I really love the twists and turns of this "end of 2011" find. ( )

Book Blurb:
A deadly influenza virus rages out of control. There is no easy-fix vaccine. No eleventh-hour containment. Only death.
With no workforce, power plants are unmanned so there’s no means of communication; police and fire departments have collapsed so no one is safe; looters are scavenging everything from big-screen TVs to canned peas.

When Dr. Taeya Sanchez finds herself unceremoniously dismissed from an emergency medical facility in New York, she decides to steal the hospital’s armored van for a midnight escape.

Unfortunately, Rick DeAngelo, a driver for the hospital, has already stocked the van for his own getaway.

Thrown into an unfriendly alliance, these two must pick their way across the dangerous wasteland of America in search of a safe haven. And as the miles roll by, they discover that the living should be feared much more than the festering corpses out there.

My Review:
First of all this book blurb (taken from Amazon.com) doesn't do it justice.

When author M.R. Cornelius asked me to read this book, she likened it to the movie Contagion and she sent me the first chapter to read as a sample. I haven't seen that movie, although I do understand the gist of it.

The first chapter of H10N1 sent chills down my spine so of course I told her I'd love to read it!

This is the story of two people who reluctantly join forces while struggling to survive a world-wide pandemic in the near future. It is a chilling tale in part, full of the violence that ensues when people are hopeless and it is a kill or be killed world. If there was a pandemic and no place was safe where would you go? What would you do?

M.R. Cornelius put a lot of thought into that situation and the story she has written is, in my view, quite a believable one. Dr. Taeya Sanchez and Rick DeAngelo do all they can to survive. This is a novel of good and evil, an epic journey, a destination, and hope.

This was a great book; the characters were compelling, the plot kept me on the edge of my seat, and the ending left me cheering. When I first starting reading this book I thought it would end up being something just like the movie Contagion, but it was definitely different from that and much better than it. I would recommend this book to everyone. ( )

There have been any number of books on America's landscape after a modern-day plague has devastated the world. It adds the spice of a terrorist-based infection, a la SARS. I thought the story was relatively well done. I liked the main character, and it was interesting how the CDC came under attack in this scenario. I'll check out future works from this author. ( )
