Product Description

Product Description

Mankind is no longer at the top of the food chain.

The Sixth Extinction is an apocalyptic tale about a pandemic that sweeps the globe, decimating the human race, leaving humanity struggling to survive. Within three weeks everything has changed. Social structure has collapsed. The police are non-existent, and the army concentrates on the cities. Gangs of yobs rule the streets. It becomes everyone for themselves.

The story follows three different people, and their journeys of self-discovery through the changing world.

Noah Morgan is just an average twenty-one-year-old. He has no aspirations in life, no girlfriend, few friends, and a dead-end job. Red is a nineteen-year-old female runaway, with a sad past and a disturbing secret. Together they leave behind everything they have ever known, looking for a safe haven.

Doctor Melanie Lazaro is working around the clock, under military supervision, in Exeter University’s Biomedical Sciences Department, trying to create a cure for the new pandemic that is turning humans back to their primordial roots, creating mindless killing machines with only one purpose − to eat.

About the Author

Glen Johnson was born in Devon, England in 1973. He lives a stone's throw away from the English Riviera, in a small town that most people don't even realize exists. He loves to travel and has been to twenty-nine different countries, and lived in Mexico City, Mexico for far too long for a pale skinned European. He has also been married twice - and still refuses to say where he buried them. At present he works as an Optical Technician. He describes himself as an idealist, a libertarian, a hedonist, a lover, an artist, a pacifist, an intellectual, a writer, but foremost a dreamer.

3.0 out of 5 stars *Siiiighhh* I hate when books are like this. 22 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story here is entertaining and gripping. It's short enough to swallow whenever you have a couple of hours free. A train ride or a rainy afternoon. The characters, while not exactly deeply complex (there's not really enough time for them to be) are decent enough to keep us interested. The zombie origin story is interesting, too. Different from most.
But the writing is awful.
Not just mistakes that a good proof read would have picked up, but the author doesn't seem to understand the possessive apostrophe. He doesn't use contractions, either. It's all 'does not', 'will not' and 'would not'. People don't talk or think like that, it serves to make the writing clunky and make it flow like a river of bricks. Word choice is poor in places, and it seems the author didn't read the finished product as it lacks the kind of polish a book gains in proofs and re-writes.
That said, it sucks you in like a Dyson hoover.
It's almost painful reading some of this, due to mistakes and badly worded sentences, but you have to keep reading to find out what happens.
I'll be reading the others in the series to find out what happens, but I'll be re-writing some of it in my head as I go.

Excellent plotting, subpar writing. Worth a read as long as it stays under £1

Hunting about after finishing RR Haywoods the Undead Series and stumbled upon Mr Johnson's The Sixth Extinction Series. Utterly Fantastic! Love the way the end of every chapter is a cliff hanger, smart writing and well thought out. Thanks Glen for the great read!

4.0 out of 5 stars very real 7 May 2013
By D'books
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Living not far from where this is based adds to the scary. Characters seem to be based on real people seen everyday there. Written in plain English and fast paced, no sleep till you've finished the book. loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read 28 Mar 2013
By Suzy Q
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book absorbing from the first page, It was refreshing to have this type of genre based in Britain rather than America I liked how the characters Noah and Red, each had a story to tell, the book takes you on different chapters through their own perspective of the events around them albeit they were together.
The end left me wanting more, I believe there is another book to follow, but as yet have had no luck buying it on kindle, looking forward to reading part two, when it becomes available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed 31 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read the whole series and thoroughly enjoyed them all.
It's nice to find English based books instead of the usual American ones which are obsessed with guns!

Highly recommend all Glen's books!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good start but short 6 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book has a good premise but was just getting going when it ended. Great value but I think the idea is to entice you with the free book so that you buy the others in the series. That said at 70 odd pence per book this isn't going to break the banj

It is a good story but could have been sold in one book. I enjoyed reading it but it is not a book in its own right.

2.0 out of 5 stars Second rate fiction
The one good thing about this book is that I am now convinced that even I could write a novel. No depth to the characters, very linear plot and littered with English errors.
