    Bubonic plague Bubonic plague is an infection of the lymphatic system, usually resulting from the bite of an infected flea, Xenopsylla cheopis the rat flea In very rare circumstances, as in the septicemic plague, the disease can be transmitted by direct contact with infected tissue or exposure to the cough of another human.The flea is parasitic on house and field rats, and seeks out other prey when its Black Death The Black Death, also known as the Great Plague, the Black Plague, or simply the Plague, was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, resulting in the deaths of an estimated to million people in Eurasia and peaking in Europe from to The bacterium Yersinia pestis, which results in several forms of plague, is believed to have been the cause.

    1. I guess I should have expected it, but Plague was a lot more… grossly detailed and harder to read than I expected - and not in a good way. I knew I was in for a heartbreaking read, but this is really nothing but a short story of a family's harsh misfortunes during a plague epidemic. Which, I admit, sounds like it could be a good read, except it was simply too… graphic. Too quick of a disturbing tale and not enough depth to balance it. It's an explicit story of a dying family. Period. We don' [...]


    2. This book is not for the light hearted and it is probably one of the most harrowing reads I've undertaken in a while. The author gives a brutal insight to one family whose four year old son is contaminated with the bubonic plague. Once the child has been diagnosed, the military seal the family in their house, what unfolds is a story of a family who must accept the fate bestowed up on them. There are moments where the descriptions are incredibly graphic, so if you don't have a strong stomach I wo [...]


    3. Plague by Lisa Hinsley is a novella with a huge impact. Johnny and Liz know their son Nathan is sick, they also realize that it is a new strain of the bubonic plague. Authorities are telling people that the outbreak isn't spreading but clearly, as seen in their neighborhood, the authorities are lying. Liz, Johnny and Nathan find themselves trapped in their home which has been literally boarded up tight to keep them inside. A government watcher is supposed to help them should they need anything - [...]


    4. I read up to 60% in this book and just had to stop, life is too short to read bad books. I picked this book because ordinarily I do like books about diseases and catastrophes and how people deal with them. This book is just badly written. At the very beginning, things were moving along as if it were the middle of the book, not the start. There was no building up, no anticipation, no time to develop any sympathy for the characters, no time to get a feel for their situation or how it came to happe [...]


    5. Lisa Hinsley has written a gruesome account of what might happen if an incurable and untreatable plague were to rear its ugly head in modern times. A young couple find their four-year-old son has contracted the plague, and the story follows their experiences as they deal with the aftermath. The government seals victims into their homes in an attempt to keep the deadly disease from spreading further. The innocent child suffers as the parents watch the progression of the infection in helpless horr [...]


    6. Novella length horror story that asks the question how far would you go to protect those nearest and dearest to you. Johnny and Liz and their young son Nathan are effectively quarantined (along with others in their neighbourhood) when young Nathan contracts the bubonic plague.Parts of the novella were heartwrenching and frightening and angst filled, but I felt that those themes were somewhat overplayed towards the end and bogged the story down.I would have liked some information as to how the pl [...]


    7. ARC provided by NetGalley:Books like this one scare the living daylights out of me. Zombies, vampires, I can handle. Contagious diseases-too real! This story involves Johnny, Liz, and their young son Nathan. A new strain of the bubonic plague has surfaced and Nathan soon begins to show signs. The family is basically on their own as the authorities simply board up their house and post guards to make sure they don't attempt to leave. I enjoyed the story well enough but really felt very little conn [...]


    8. Well. What can I say? A good night's sleep was NOT had by me last night!After hearing great things, I decided to give Plague a read. I started it late at night with the intention of reading just a few pages before bedtime, but that wasn't how things went down. It gripped me by the throat and I couldn't turn off the Kindle. Hours later and I was still going, so intent was I to find out the fate of poor Liz, Johnny and little Nathan.Could I stop talking about it? No. Could I stop thinking about it [...]


    9. I guess I wanted a bigger book with a wider cast and a greater look at society breaking down but I suppose that's been done before and the parts of that were hinted at in a sinister way which was good.This is about a single family dealing with the inevitable death, they seem to go through the classic stages of grief, sometimes in a corny way but believable just the same. The narrow focus allows a better look at how individuals and a family and actually cope with knowing what is coming.It's diffi [...]


    10. What would you do if a new strain of the black plague surfaced in your town and quickly spread through the country? Barricaded in your home with a sick child, no phone, telly, or internet and no way to get supplies?That's just the case in this well written and slightly horrifying book by Lisa Hinsley. It is more of a psycholigical type of horror than the amainstream blood guts and gore and that makes it all the more frightening.It is one of those books you get drawn into quickly and hate to put [...]


    11. A very scary and disturbing read about the return of bubonic plague in our current time, and how one family tries to cope with the illness as they are quarantined in their house. This is not for the faint of heart as author Hinsley describes the progression of the disease and the experiences the family faces. With books like this that describe the possiblity of an outbreak of a disease that we all believe must be extinct and yet it isn't - wow - I think I should pay more attention to 'prepper' s [...]


    12. Allright, I am a parent and I have to give this book 5 stars for making me feel queasy. Not an easy chore. A truly frightening look at how a plague could wipe us out today. YUP diseases adapt to modern meds such as antibiotics. I spent three months in a hospital fighting infections with IV meds and barely survived. The experience is as ugly as the writer discripes and I simply dont want to think of having to endure my kids going thru that. Whew, think I'm gonna go wash my hands.


    13. Provide yourself with a hanky and maybe a box of chocolates before you start on this book, as you won't want to stop later on. This book will put you through an emotional wringer. You will feel that you lived it along with Liz and John and poor little Nathan. At the end is hope. This is an extraordinary book. Ms. Hinsley is to be commended on her skill. I would like to see a sequel.


    14. DNF. I can't read anymore of this. What the little boy is going through is horrendous. All the details on the problems he's having with his bodily fluids is disgusting, but the thing that got to me was what his mother just said.It has made me feel absolutely sick. I'm going to need to watch or read something funny to get that visual out my head now.


    15. Well worth a readBrilliant book, harrowing, thought provoking, a book that will stay with me for a long while, i dont want to give too much away, but a serious good readwhat would you do in this situation??get it!!


    16. A very powerful and descriptive story of a family gripped by a new strain of bubonic plague .Boarded in to their house by a desperate government trying to control an epidemic ,the family has to suffer the horrific consequences!, scarily plausible !



    17. Fascinating read! I couldn't put the book down! It was so riveting, I felt as if I were watching a medical drama unfolding right before my eyes.


    18. Review Note: This book was approved by NetGalley as an ARC exchanged for an honest review.Review:Plague is no zombie book. It reminds me of the novel Hot Zone and other films and movies that deals with some sort of strain, disease, or virus.History repeats itself once again. The Bubonic Plague finds itself in modern day London. It's faster and deadlier and spreads through London population like wildfire. No one knows where this plague has come from. All we know is that it's deadly and no one is [...]


    19. I won this book on a giveaway and I was totally excited to read it, but it got stuck on the shelf while I finished several books ahead of it in the reading queue. The copy that I received was signed by Lisa Hinsley, the author, which was nice.After reading this book, I would give it 2.5 stars - I wasn't reading it because I was totally engrossed in the story progression but I didn't totally hate it. I found that I was somewhat indifferent to what was happening or that I didn't get as emotionall [...]


    20. Liz and Johnny thought that they were safe–for the moment–from the new strain of the bubonic plague that the government said was confined to the south. But then their son begins to show symptoms of the plague. A call to the government health hotline leads to their home being boarded up and quarantined. Liz is forced to sit by helplessly as her son grows weaker, the other houses on her street are boarded up, and their connection to the outside world is severed. The only option for her family [...]


    21. Ooooh boy, grab your popcorn boys and girls because this review will definitely be filled with rants.I was admittedly SO excited when I was approved for this title. That excitement did not last long once I started this book.First of all, where the HELL were the quotation marks? Hell-o, they are kind of important so I know where the dialogue is and who is talking.Not having them is really not acceptable. For me that was a huge deal. Unfortunately that was not the biggest issue I had with the book [...]


    22. Plague is a great imagining of the disintegration of society in the wake of a pandemic. Johnny and Liz’s reactions to their son’s illness and to the shrinking world around them are uncomfortable in their accuracy and realism. The power of the story however lies not within their roiling emotions but to the feeling of impotence. Theirs is a situation about which they can do nothing, about which the government can do little, and for which there is almost no hope. As frustrated as Liz and Johnny [...]


    23. Last month the folks over at Pocket Star, Simon & Schuster's eBook imprint, released Lisa C. Hinsley's novella PLAGUE. The description called it a thriller in the vein of Contagion so of course I had to read it!Maybe not the best book choice while still suffering from an epic cold turned sinus infection but I finally dug it out of the digital TBR pile last night and dove in. And it's a whammy of a read! Brutal both in terms of gory description and heartwrenching emotion, PLAGUE is a terrifyi [...]


    24. This would've been better as a short story. I have been looking for a good story about the Bubonic Plague for ages, as the disease has always fascinated me. This one seemed promising, but did not deliver. The book sits awkwardly in between short story and full novel length, and the conclusion leaves the reader unsatisfied. We do not find out what happened, and with a story like this, an open ending just doesn't work. I wish there would've been more emergency broadcasts and maybe some insight int [...]


    25. Its reality and it was horrific to read but yet I was drawn to the pages like the flies were drawn inside the house of Liz and Johnny as their house becomes a living hell. It was the flies that had me squirming just like the flies from the Amityville Horror movie that buzzed inside their house in the middle of winter, these flies had me swatting and scratching in the middle of the night as I read and then tried to go to sleep. Four-year old Nathan contacted the disease first. Bubonic plague, the [...]


    26. The bubonic plague has reared its ugly head again but with a new strain. Liz lives with her husband Johnny and 4 year old son Nathan in a small suburban neighborhood. Liz watches as some of her neighbor's homes are boarded up by the army and wonders what is going on. She hears about the plague on the news and is given a number to call if anyone in the household becomes sick.When Nathan starts getting sick Liz wants to call the number but Johnny tells her not to. But Liz is only thinking about he [...]


    27. First of all I would not recommend that mamas of babies read this. Also if you're very sensitive or have a weak stomach, skim skim skim or skip this one.That said, I guess I am morbid and perverse because I just could not stop reading. This was really short but very descriptive account of a terrifying 'what if'-- what if there was another outbreak of The Plague, but in these modern times? What if your government turned its back on you? What if they abandoned you and left you to die? Lisa Hinsley [...]


    28. This book was good but then it was boring. It tells the story of what might happen if an incurable plague were to break out. In the beginning the little boy decides to touch a dead cat. This is what starts the spread of it to other kids and to his dad. They saw a white van pull up at their neighbors and board the house up. They did not know why they were doing that. The reason was that anybody who had the plague and everyone in that house were to be boarded up and die inside. This happens to thi [...]


    29. This book went from seeing into a somewhat average families life, to awfully frightening in a matter of chapters. Some of the things that happened in this book brought me to tears and you feel so awful for the suffering that the adult characters have to face, its shocking. The two parents and their 4 year old son are intentionally trapped in their little home as the young boy, Nathan, has supposedly caught the bubonic plague. Their house gets boarded up, as do many others in their street. They a [...]
