Publisher's Summary

Without warning, something has gone terribly awry. In the remote and unnoticed places of the world, small pockets of death begin occurring. As the initially isolated extinctions spread, the world's eyes focus on this unimaginable horror and chaos. Out of the ecological imbalance, something new and extraordinary is evolving and surviving to fill the voids left by these extinctions. Evolution is operating in ways no one could have expected, and environmental damage may be the catalyst. Once discovered, this knowledge changes everything...

What the Critics Say

"Bohacz's vision of a humanity that faces the need to evolve profoundly or face certain destruction is as timely as today's news and as chilling a doomsday scenario as any ecological catastrophe can suggest." (Publisher's Weekly Starred Review)
"There is enough power in the premise to leave readers reeling. A novel that will surprise fans of science-fiction and doomsday scenarios." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Immortality is a fine, tense, scientific mystery adventure that puts mankind in a challenge of survival with a short time limit. This is the way the world could end." (Piers Anthony, author of 21 New York Times best-selling novels)

Good End of World Thriller

I like this genre, but after reading so many they get sort of repetitious. This one had a different slant and I found it interesting. THe basic theme is that there is a plague that is slowly wiping out the world's population. However, this one is different in that it is not actually transmitted from person to person but is triggered by a different method, resulting in what are called dead zones. People within a certain radius of just a few hundred yards almost instantly drop dead. Obviously this can cause mayhem if people are operating cars or other heavy machinery. So we have a thriller that involves the typical chaos when lots of people start to die, the world taken over by gangs bent on murder and mayhem, and a science thriller of tracking down the cause of the deaths.

It's a long book (26 hours) and the author has a tendency to add too many unneeded details, but it holds your interest. The narration is fairly good with the single narrator able to have a rather large range of voices. So if you like books like Stephen King's The Stand, or "plague" books you will like this. No zombies however, (Not sure I can take another Zombie Book) The length of the book makes it a good "bang for your audible buck." . You need a little patience in the beginning as the author introduces the major characters, a CDC doctor and a Nobel Prize winning Scientist.
