Audiobook Review: Level 6 by Bobby Akart!


    Pandemic: Level 6 Audiobook
  • Written by: Bobby Akart
  • Narrated by: John David Farrell Kris Adams
  • Length: 7 hrs and 52 mins 
  • Unabridged Audiobook
  • Release Date:08-21-17
  • Publisher: Bobby Akart Inc.
  • Deadly outbreaks of diseases make headlines, but not at the start.
  • Every pandemic begins small, subtle, and in faraway places.
  • When it arrives, it spreads across oceans and continents, like the sweep of nightfall, killing millions, or even billions.
  • Be prepared to get very, very paranoid.
  • A new post-apocalyptic medical thriller fiction series from author Bobby Akart (The Blackout Series, The Boston Brahmin series, and the Prepping for Tomorrow series). The events depicted in The Pandemic Series are fictional. They are, however, based upon historical fact.
  • In Beginnings, book one of The Pandemic Series, a deadly plague virus has been introduced across the glove by ISIS terrorists who are waging the mother of all wars - The Final Jihad. Dr. Mackenzie Hagan, a disease detective and epidemiologist at the CDC-Atlanta and Nathan Hunter, an off-the-books operative for the mysterious Project Artemis within the Department of Defense, join forces to both identify the disease, but also to locate its source.
  • In The Innocents, book two of The Pandemic Series, ISIS terrorists continued to wage the Final Jihad, infecting innocent people around the world. The highly contagious form of the plague has been genetically modified - to be the perfect killer.
  • In Level 6, book three of The Pandemic Series, the pandemic has hit a brick wall, but not because it's burned itself out. Rather, it's running out of victims. Social distancing is the only way to avoid a gruesome fate. Unfortunately, in a dystopian world where resources are scarce and scavenging is a way of life, every moment away from where you live could result in your death from either the disease, or your fellow man.
  • This is an ingenious, inventive post-apocalyptic thriller about the threats we face from a global pandemic and the use of infectious diseases by terrorists as they wage jihad around the world.

My Thoughts: 

Here we are, 8 weeks into the Pandemic, and most of the worlds population is either sick or dead. Supplies in shops are running low, people are beginning to realise just how bad it is. The president is hunkered in his bunker but is becoming increasingly erratic, Level 6 is in full affect and life is on the brink. Meanwhile Mac and Hunter are trying to get into a routine and Mac and her mum are setting up a makeshift lab to try to find either a cure or a vaccine. Life in their little mountain retreat is plodding along. Something happens and one of Mac's loved ones becomes infected, so it's a race against time for Mac!

This series is simply amazing. The attention to detail is phenomenal. I felt like I was watching a documentary while reading and learned a lot!! The situations the characters find themselves in was frighteningly real and you find yourself immersed in their story. You'll laugh and cry along with them and just find yourself a part of their world. We get to see more of the characters struggles in this as they try to survive. 

Character wise, what I love most about this series are the characters. Mac is so smart and resourceful, her mum and dad are awesome and then there's "billionaire batman" Hunter, who just rocks!! The characters are all well written and developed and have made their way into my heart.

There really isn't much else I can say about this because I would spoil it for others so I'll just say that this series is one of my favourites and I highly highly recommend it!! If you love medical thrillers or viral outbreaks then you will love this! Now this does end on a massive cliffhanger but it's ok because I know book 4 is coming soon to audio and I bought the ebook already!!! Go read it, you won't be disappointed!!! 

I have to say that at this stage, I couldn't picture anyone else narrating this. Both the narrators were awesome and really read this well. They captured the characters feelings perfectly and really brought the anxiety and heartbreak of the characters to life. 

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.
