PLAGUESVILLE, USA. Acknowledgements. Dedicated to: Kevin, for the spirit. Jane, for the undying support. Ellie, for the spark. And most of all, to Katy, without whom this would not be possible, for Everything Else. For one thing, the man delivering the speech had been sealed in a special, germ-free, state-of-the-art hazmat suit for the last two years; what did he know about disease or suffering? What was all this we talk? Mainly though, all a survivor had to do was to look around to see that the man was full of crap, because no matter where they were, from Alaska to Florida, Maine to California, they were surrounded by death.

Plaguesville, USA book. Jim LaVigne's book Plaguesville, USA is one of the best post-apocalyptic stories I have had the good fortune to encounter. In the near future, the vast majority of humanity is dead, wiped. It wasn't something I expected to be as excellent as it turned out to be. In fact, as the story went along I found myself more and more pleasantly surprised all the time. The characters grew, the plot unfolded in surprising directions, and some very genuine and poignant moments came along in the course of the book.

The year is 2075, and the vast majority of humanity is dead.

The global outbreak of a new strain of virus wiped out over 99% of the population. The lone hope rests on the slim, unready shoulders of Dr. Justin Kaes and a small team of specialists from the Center for Disease Control. The researchers have discovered a cure for the plague in the blood of a cantankerous 102 year old. But there’s one minor problem: the old man couldn’t care less whether humanity lives or dies. And he most certainly doesn’t feel like going on a road trip to sunny California.

On the way to the coast lie murderous tribes, cults, voracious animals, and the toxic remains of civilization. They face a world gone backwards, technology and industry reduced to rusting garbage. Their mission seems doomed… But there are a few decent souls still out there, citizens of Plaguesville, USA.

While I thoroughly enjoyed World War Z I'm about burned out on Zombie books. The Post Apocalyptic novel is reminsicent of "The Road" and "Lights Out". It's lengthy and in some places, it drags. The characters seem realistic and I came to like two of them---Teresa and the old man. I found very few proof reading errors which is rare in these bargain basement first time thriller novels. The author never tries to explain how the plague came about nor does he seem to revel in extended plague descriptions. The journey (modeled after several other famous ones which I won't spoil here) is the story and the characters make the travel interesting and worthwhile. It'll never qualify as great literature but for the price it's a great adventure to hunker down with.

Others have gone over the plot and the great characters, but I was really struck by the hopeful tone of the book. In most post apocolyptic books you get a lot of "isn't mankind awful" sort of preaching but in this book, while you do get a lot of the bad side of humanity, you also get a whopping dose of the good side of people.

All of our main characters show that they have both bad and good sides and the good side wins out.

The only thing I would quibble with was the explanation of the mutants. I think we didn't need an explanation, and the one we got wasn't convincing. I'm hoping the author put it in so he would have something to write about in the next installment!!

A long strange trip, but one worth taking. This story is long and meandering. As I started reading it, I thought that was going to be a problem, but it turned out to be one of its strengths. It is a long strange trip, but one so full of interesting events that I was never bored. One of the other strengths of this book was, because it is long, we have the time to get to know and care about the characters. We see them in their own lives before they come together. By the end, I felt like I really knew them and was sorry to see them go. The book runs the spectrum from wacky to funny to weird to poignant and touching. It touches on the philosophical at times, but at all times it was a good read.

In an age where everyone is dead, dying or infected can this rag tag team of CDC doctors, nurses and Mr. Lampert make it to develop the vaccine that will save the world?

Jim LaVigne will take you on a tour of America after the spread of a deadly virus that is now mutated and virtually impossible to stop. The cure rests with the old curmudgeon Mr Lampert and getting him to the clinic in California.

Cannibals, boomsticks, feral children and one fat governor all try to prevent them from accomplishing this task. But they will all have to learn to trust each other as they journey across the country to save humanity.

Yes, there are aspects of classic post apocalyptic tales alluded to but the story is the key; it's just a pleasure to read. The characters are good, the conflict is creative (especially in a genre that has a tendency to be staid) and the literary constructs are very well done. I particularly liked the fair bit of social commentary that the author manages to sneak in around the corners through various methods. This is done artfully and with such direct association to the story that the reader will never feel burdened by an agenda--simply a stating of the cause and effect phenomenon as played out in the tragic landscape that is Plaguesville, USA and the necessary steps the denizens of this world must take to survive and still retain some aspect of what it means to be human. Many, many levels are offered to the reader and you may take your pick on how you wish to enjoy this really good tale.

This is not something I would normally read, but I was hooked from the very first chapter. Wow. You care about these people - even the bad ones really and the story moves along at a good pace. At times I thought it should feel like it was dragging, but it didn't. There are a lot of characters and I thought I'd get confused, but I didn't. The imagery is spectacular, and the surprises will really surprise you. Even if this isn't your type of book - read it.

I got this book because it was in the Kindle Owner's lending library. To be honest, it was a matter of, "eh, could be entertaining," and I was not optimistic. I was wrong. This is a very fun read, and while many of the elements have been done before, the combination was well executed. It was engaging, and there were several times I felt so very understood by the storyteller. Without revealing too much, one of the characters gives voice to many of the frustrations of my generation in the U.S.(those of us ~20-40). I found the author's use of cultural references particular to my age group to be very well woven into the narrative. Definitely give this book a try!
I've always been a fan of the Post Apocalypse genre and this is a great addition. Takes place several years after a virus has wiped out much of the worlds population. A group of CDC guys go on a cross country trip to find an old man who may or may not have the secret to curing the virus in his blood. Story has several great turns that will keep you guessing till the very end.
