The Island: Part 1 Michael R Stark Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
The Fever struck hard and fast, rising out of the slums and claiming victim after victim. At first, reports trickled across the wire in small segments relegated to the final seconds of the broadcast news. Lost among stories of failing economies and political bickering, few noticed what proved to be the birth pangs of a monster. Within months, the disease dominated the news as thousands died and infection rates soared.
William Hill knew his chances of avoiding the virus sat squarely between slim and none. With experts predicting a global pandemic, his choices boiled down to not if, but where he would die. While the rest of the world built barricades and set up distribution points for food, he chose a simpler end. The island had been one of the last and best times with his father. He couldn’t think of a better place to spend his final days.
He wanted sun and sand, fresh fish on the grill and cool nights by the campfire. He wanted feel-good days filled with oldies on the radio, days when he could hoist the sails and run before the wind. He didn’t set out to make enemies, but he did. He didn’t plan on becoming humanity’s last hope for survival, or watching over an old woman and an eerie little boy either.
To William Hill, the island seemed as good a place as any to die.
He just didn’t realize how good.

User reviews about this book
By Joe bongos
I read a lot of books in this genre and I enjoyed this one. Starts slow but does make you want to read the next book
Ok to start. Does start rather slow but let's you in on character development along with a slow rise in suspense. On to book 2!
Exquisitely horrible book
I really did not like this book at all.
This is a great start to a story you don't want to put down. Once you have read some you will thirst for more. I can't wait for more I have devoured every word to the end of chapter 4
Believable characters and interesting story.
Great story, awesome price
I've read Parts 1 through 3 and just shelled out my .99 cents for part 4. So far I've been very impressed. This story has just the right mix of creepy, scary, weird, and exciting. It also manages not to be depressing, which is not typical (but IS most welcome ) in most post-apocalyptic fare.

Good plot and characterization
There are incidence of overly descriptive word painting. I prefer to use a little more of my own imagination. I would definitely recommend this book.
Short book that takes way way too long to get anywhere
