The first book in the Beginnings series the “Silent Victor” takes us through the start of the plague and fall of civilization. After the initial die off and gruesome ends to many people it slows down and focuses a lot of attention on character development (the series is like 26 books so there is time) but give you a good feel for what is going on and makes you really connect with the main characters. I enjoyed this enough to plan on moving onto the second book in the near future BUT, I will not be doing so if its read by Andrew Wehrlen. He has a herky jerky delivery a la Captain Kirk and all the women sound like southern bells.

Wanted to like it but just could not, though I did try. The narrator delivers the text in a halting, breathy type of way that just grated my nerves. The characters were not at all believable. The brilliant scientist is really an idiot and the grieving mother is at the middle of a love triangle that is totally out of place in this story. Also, many of the relationships are not made clear so it left me wondering what the heck was going on. I would pass on this one.
