There is a deadly virus spreading around the world. At first it is a distant alarm bell in the background of Hannah's comfortable suburban life. Then suddenly it has arrived on the doorstep.
The virus traps Hannah, her husband, and their young sons in their city, then their neighborhood, and finally their own home. As a formerly idyllic backyard and quiet street become battlefields, fear and compassion collide. But what happens when their water supply is cut, and then the power, and the food supply dwindles?
Chilling and suspenseful, at once deeply personal and terrifying in its implications, Before This Is Over invites us to imagine what a family must do to survive when pushed to the extreme.

Tension in the Mundane
While hearing about the everyday life of a family hiding out and trying to survive inside their home during a killing flu epidemic, the story unfolds with tension and suspense even in the mundane. I could have done without the manufactured angst over some of the decisions made that didn't need to be agonized over, but it was still a good read and really made you think about what could happen during a serious flu pandemic. The narrator has an authentic Australian accent and did a great job, but had a slightly annoying habit of raising her voice at the end of statements, otherwise I would have given her 5 starts.

Trying to push through since I used my credit on this story
Trying to push through this book since I used my monthly audible credit on it, but I'm really disappointed. The story is good but the narration is rough to listen to...I should have bought the kindle version. The narrator sounds like she is constantly either questioning or making a grave point, neither of which is fitting for 90% of the book (and it has nothing to do with her accent- it's just her reading style). I dislike the narration so much that I will make sure future purchases are not read by the same person .
