    1. First the narration was exceptional! The story was good & easy to follow. I loved the story and how things are playing out. The entire concept is new & original. I love it when an author can give you something original & make it good. I'm ready for the next installment! I was voluntarily provided this review copy at no charge by the author, publisher and or narrator.

    2. Kindle Unlimited got this as freebie day for the 2 pack a month of so ago, listing both stories so you can see why need bothVirus -72 Hours to LiveA suspicious virus that no one can explain hits Earth. The President of the United States Arnold Patterson and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs face the collapse of the government. The President loses his family to the virus, the government is attacked, and they must deal with a ruthless warlord.As everyone deals with the crisis, two glaring realiti [...]

    3. The endNot really my kind of book, I guess it's too technical for me . I think the thing that was missing for me was the lack of emotional connection to the characters. It was good enough for me to finish tho. If you like technical reads and outer space books you will like this one

    4. ( Format : Audiobook)""Tom, we might be totally alone""I almost never relisten to books - too many new titles to lure me away - but this is almost certainly going to be an exception, partially because the story itself is so densely packed and deserves a second hearing and also because I intend to continue with this series. Because it is not a simple continuation of books but is, in part, parallel stories, it will be fun to backtrack again.I heard the Audible recording of SIMPOC : the thinking co [...]

    5. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book."Great Sci Fi; Excited to See Where This Goes"This was good right out of the gate. Without having listened to Gemini or SIMPOC ( don't know if Gemini is related to this story), this was easy to fall into. It had great world-building, likable characters, and SIMPOC who was simply amazing really. The creation of this robot character was pretty cool. In a way, he reminded me of DATA but there were clear differences. That's my observation. And wit [...]

    6. The narration was done by Zachary Johnson — and honestly, I think that he could have done a better job. Technothrillers are full of big details and broad topics that need a good understanding. Some people can do a technothriller and not even blink (Joe Hempel) while others seem to get lost in the details. My only other issue with Johnson’s narration was the lack of differentiation between characters. One of the biggest problems people seem to have with audiobooks is that they are hard to lis [...]

    7. I received a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for an honest review.A mysterious virus kills most of Earth's population. Just before the outbreak, SIMPOC, a super powerful computer gains conscience and starts analyzing the situation. Later on he will work with other computers to give assistance to the very few humans still alive. In the meantime, some riots surge in key places taking advance of the situation.This book is the expansion of the first SIMPOC short story. [...]

    8. I'm a medical LAB Technologist that loves microbiology and the likes. This book really caught my interest. Didn't realize the role computers played in it. it was very interesting. I loved it! At times I felt there was too much detail but I think that was just because I'm kind of technically challenged. lol. I was more interested in the virus part. But I soon became so engrossed in all of it. it all fit together so nicely. I had no idea what was going to happen next. It was so unpredictable and k [...]

    9. This was an engaging listen and I am glad to see this author publish a full book! The narrator did an excellent job bringing both the human and AI voices to life.The story is told from 4 points of view: humans in space, the POTUS, a small time punk, and a fledgling AI unit with an organic processor. As the end of the world unravels each story line progresses and eventually the four storylines merge into 2 separate paths as the survivor's stories are told. The year is 2051 and while there have be [...]

    10. I Am Rooting for SIMPOC (Audiobook)This is an expansion of the wonderful short story SIMPOC-01 by Ray Jay Perreault. The original story is told mainly through the mind and voice of SIMPOC (Synapse Integrated Massive Parallel Organic Computer) from its creation just before the virus outbreak though a few weeks after. Virus: 72 Hours to Live adds more information about how different groups of humans deal with the a very fast acting and deadly plague.This book is action packed and really hard to pu [...]

    11. I was pleasantly surprised by this book, it is fast paced, complex and imaginative. If you love technology, then you will adore this book and the authors background is apparent in its complex tech. The various interweaving stories meld together and form a very interesting sci-fi story, each aspect complimenting and adding depth to the others. A fast spreading virus is quickly killing mankind and the world is dissolving into chaos; governments collapse, criminals are trying to rule and communicat [...]

    12. I had not read the SIMPOC story prior to listening to this audiobook. However, this is explained as being an expanded version of the story. I was fully impressed by this book, the author did an amazing job. The virus is very mysterious, and I would like to have known how it started. I don't know if there will be another book after this, but I hope so. It took me a little while to get all the characters straight, but I liked the different points of view after I did. SIMPOC was an amazing characte [...]

    13. Virus -72 hours to live is among the best sci-fi books I've read. Trust me on that. It follows the path of great sci-fi writers as Robin Cook, to name one. It has some mystery involved and it can make you feel like going to bed without it a waste of time. The problem is that when you go to bed with it, you just can't stop reading. It evolves in a not very far future and it presents the possibilities and the struggles of the human race facing a worldwide catastrophe that kills so fast and at 100% [...]

    14. I listened to the Audible version of this book.I first listened to the Simpoc books,which were great!Virus takes us back to earth where the virus wipes out most humans leaving the computers to fight battles with them.Great sci fi written well and narrated by Zachary Johnson.He does a nice job with human and computer voices.I was gifted this book for an honest review.

    15. Awful, awful, awful. So full of typos, grammatical errors, and spelling mistakes, I could barely muddle through 20 or so pages, and I have never been so bored as I was reading this. I tried very hard to come up with at least one positive thing to say about this book, and all I can come up with is that it's an intriguing story idea, but one that needs to be developed better.

    16. I didn't get to hear the original SIMPOC books and this is just an expanded version of that from what I understand. It's a great story about a deadly virus that breaks out all over the planet wiping out most of the population. SIMPOC is an artificial intellingence that is trying to help some of the remaining humans. Like I said, excellent story! The narration was good as well. I only gave that 4 stars due to editing flaws. Many times it sounds like a cassette starting and stopping and there are [...]
