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 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 .
