Good summer read

A fun, fast paced, read with a well written story.
Great for a beach book.
Characters you relate to in a believable plot.

I really enjoyed reading PLAYING GOD by Doug Moore. I liked the characters and enjoyed the plot very much. It's more of a standard thriller/end of the world kind of story, but it was pretty well written (especially for an author's first novel). I've read many stories involving a virus devastating civilization and though this story doesn't bring anything new to that kind of story it still was an entertaining story to read. No real complaints in the end.

Overall a good book. I look forward to readi

Wow! Didn't have a clue what kind of book this was going to be. I bought it last July and didn't re-read the synopsis. At first I thought there wasn't enough written about large blocks of time that were missing; I later changed my mind. Liked the development of the characters - lots of action; the realism of the possibility of a pandemic was well done. Very well written. (just needs some editing)

Shelves: action-adventure
Global powers beyond world governments have released a pandemic upon humanity in order to lower the population and save Earth from the destructive forces of overpopulation and climactic change. Interesting, fun, action-packed, good characterization, plot and storytelling. A few vocabulary usage errors, but not too bad. I enjoyed this and will be looking for the next book by this author.

Not a bad read.... a bit choppy at times. The survivalist aspect is a bit unbelievable, as the group was able to get everything they needed to run for it with very little long term preparations having been made ahead of time. Still an enjoyable read though.

It was ok but the fact that the author wanted to write another and to my knowledge hasnt mean that the ending drops off and leaves you sitting there with a retarded look on you face wondering what would happen next
