The Things That Keep Us Here by Carla Buckley

The Things That Keep Us Here by Carla Buckley (to be released February 9, 2010)

“The Things That Keep Us Here” is a phenomenal debut thriller about what happens to one family when a virulent bird flu pandemic hits the USA. And it has the potential to kill about 50 our of every one hundred that it infects. And then that potential turns to reality.

This is the story of one broken family coming to grips of the reality that is America during an unseen and unprepared for emergency.

I’ve read so far this year, about 250 books…this is the one that I will remember for years to come. I’ve just finished it and I want to grab it up and start rereading it . It was an utterly amazing book especially for a debut. The characters are so well written that I came to think of them as friends of mine. The plot was very well thought out, fast paced, chilling, thrilling and yet tender. This book preys on our deepest emotions and fears, it also makes us ask the really hard moral and ethical questions of ourselves. It makes us wonder if we could cope just half as well as the Brooks family does. If we would come out of something like this with our sanity even half as intact as they did.

I look forward to Carla Buckley’s next novel.
