Summary

What would happen if a viral agent was released on American soil? How would local agencies react? How would the military respond? What if it was one of their own? Would they own it or attempt to cover it up? If a major operation was jeopardized because of the release, would that alter any of the decisions? A potent viral agent, created to destabilize a region for forces to move in and clean up, is accidentally spilled in a metropolis. Those infected serve only to afflict others through any means.
As forces move in on the beleaguered city, Sergeant Brown has to make his way through roving bands of the infected in order to escape. Will the ring close before he can reach safe grounds or will he and others he finds be added to the final tally?

Butch women

Although a good narrator, there is no differentiation between characters.
You can go from a tough marine, to a 10 year old girl with no change in pace or volume. I found myself jumping back to see if I missed a bit of the story

Great book

I'm a big fan of John O'Brien's A New World series. For fans of that series I'd say this is similar but has a stronger emphasis on the military side of things. I enjoyed the story. It had great characters and an interesting arc. I recommend.

SCARY PREMISE FOR THE ZOMPOCALYPSE!

Any additional comments?

First off let me say I love John Obrien...he is a talented writer, and a very nice man...This was a great premise and shows you how scary the government could get..deceitful and careless...and really cruel! However this book is written in 3rd person...and that ruined it for me...John's other wonderful series is written first person..and its great..so I was disappointed that this book was written in 3rd...and that just does not do it for me...I struggled till about half way through this book and it finally hooked me enough to adjust to the writing style...Most people will love this..but even though the story is completely terrifying...it was not my cup of tea!

Rarely write reviews anymore but....

Would you try another book from John O'Brien and/or Mark Gagliardi?

Not sure. It would have to have been out a while and have received rave reviews from the large majority of listeners.

What do you think your next listen will be?

After it Happened set 3.

Did Mark Gagliardi do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Not at all.

Was ARES Virus worth the listening time?

No. I've actually stopped with 3 hrs to go.

Any additional comments?

Didn't like the narrator at all. There was zero relationship built between the characters. Every male character sounds exactly the same. Hard to tell when the story switched from one person to another as they all sounded the same.

Obviously i'm in the minority as many readers love this book but it really just did nothing for me.
