I ended up really loving this book, it starts to lag around 20% and become quite monotonous, but don't give up because it does pick up. This is a realistic account of what might happen if an extremely deadly flu epidemic hit the population. Because it is so realistic, there are definitely some more depressing moments, but I love that the main character seems to always hope for more at the end of the day. I found myself thinking about whether I, too, could maintain such hope in such a despairing situation. It has a great ending and some moments of surprise. If you like this genre and find the excerpt compelling I don't think you would be disappointed in picking this book up.

***I received this book for free from Librarything. This in no way influenced my opinion of the book. Thank you to the author and Library thing for providing me a copy of this book***

Lee Bennett has finally landed his first book deal and used the advance to rent a house in an ideal location to write his book, but there is tension between his need to write and his wife’s desire for a child. An infuriating hum and missing animals provide the first hints all in not right. Then the odd lights and an accident bring more concerns. Now a pathogen making people sick and the government quarantine the community. Bennett and two neighbors may know cure, but it may be too save his marriage. There are a few twist and turns to hold the reader’s interest in this supernatural thriller.

The Hum is a fast-paced science fiction story that's rather an enjoyable read. It follows Lee Bennet as he investigates an odd mechanical humming noise ('The Hum', a genuine reported phenomenon) which seems to be linked to a series of strange events.

From the plot summary I was expecting a slow burning mystery story which could have science-fiction/fantasy leanings, but this is straightforward science fiction (which I enjoy). The author's style is straightforward with no flowery language, but that does work well with the speed of the narrative.

There are a few bits and pieces in the book that could have benefited from a keen-eyed editor, but I really enojyed the story and am tempted to look up more of the author's work.

This novel is in a similar style to the books that come out alongside series such as the X-files, and I'd definitely recommend it to people who enjoy books of that type (as I do!)

When I requested this book, I thought it was a thriller. After reading about 100 pages, I still believed it was a thriller, and I liked the author. Her language was beautiful and the plot well created and exciting. But then, the most incredible thing started to happen, and I realised that the genre was “Fantasy”. Unfortunately, I don’t like reading about things that are impossible to happen “in the real world”. That’s why I give this book three stars. But if you are a fan of “Fantasy”, I will highly recommend it, and I’m sure you will give this book five stars… (more)
