A disease that the inhabitants of earth call The Eleventh Plague, or P11 for short, spread throughout the world causing chaos and killing millions. The whole world became a wasteland with all of the power going out, houses and buildings being abandoned, and people dying left and right. Stephen and his dad use all of their effort to do whatever it takes to stay alive. One day, Stephen's dad sustains a head injury that puts him in a coma. Stephen then has to look out for himself and his dad who is now helpless and in a coma. Stephen is soon discovered with his dad shortly after the accident and is taken back to a small town that is safe and stable. Stephen thinks it's too good to be true, but then trouble begins to arise in the town.
The Eleventh Plague Reviews
Brendan Koch: 2 out of 5
Personally, I would only give this book a rating of 2 out of 5 stars. I had high hopes for this book, but that changed while reading this novel. The title of this book is kind of misleading and doesn't really have much to do with the story as a whole. Most of the book was just about the main character, Stephen Quinn, finding a settlement called Settler's Landing and adapting to a normal life as a 15 year old boy. The Eleventh Plague itself is only brought up a few times in the flashbacks that Stephen has of his life as a small child. Another disappointing thing about this book was that the climax didn't come until near the end of the book. The rest of the book is all about Stephen trying to live a normal life in Settler's Landing and waiting for his dad to wake up from the coma. Although I did not like the book as a whole, the author did do a good job keeping me reading. The author does a good job of making you want to find out if Stephen's dad survives and what happens to Stephen and the rest of Settler's Landing in the end, but it wasn't enough to keep me interested the whole time.
Kevin Wright: 1.5 out of 5
My rating of this book is a 1.5. I thought this book would be a great, interesting novel, but it sucked. At some times the book was interesting and action packed, but most of the other times, it was just plain old boring. The book could of used more action and more events. The only good part of this book was when Settlers Landing was under attack and there was an all out war. If there were more parts in the book like this, action packed and thrilling, I would love reading this book and suggest others to read. The author does a great job of intriguing the readers to want to find out more and to see what happens, but when you do find out, its not as surprising as you thought. My overall rating for this book is a 1.5, it could of been better.
Derek Weide: 2 out of 5
I rate this book a 2 out of 5. This book had a good plot, but what the author decided to do with it is what made this a terrible book. Everything moved so slowly. Half of the book was just filler, and carried absolutly no importance to the rest of the book. There were a few parts of the book the slightly interested me, but for the most part i was just let down by it in all. If the book had more of those events, then maybe it would have been more enjoyable. This book could have been way better with the plot selected, and I'm very dissapointed by what the authr did with it
