Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Erich Krauss comes Primitives, the story of two unlikely heroes thrust into a post-apocalyptic mission to restore humanity. 

Thirty years after the Great Fatigue infected the globe—and the treatment regressed most of the human race to a primitive state—Seth Keller makes a gruesome discovery in his adoptive father’s makeshift lab. This revelation forces him to leave the safety of his desert home and the only other person left in the world…at least, as far as he knows.

Three thousand miles away in the jungles of Costa Rica, Sarah Peoples has made her own discovery—just as horrific, and just as life-changing. It will take her far from the fledgling colony of New Haven, yet never out of reach of its ruthless authoritarian leader. 

On separate journeys a world apart, Seth and Sarah find themselves swept up in a deadly race to save humankind. Their fates will come crashing together in an epic struggle between good and evil, where the differences aren’t always clear. Among the grim realities of civilization’s demise, they discover that the remaining survivors may pose an even greater threat than the abominations they were taught to fear. 

Fighting for their lives, they’re confronted with a haunting question. 

Does humanity deserve to survive? 

Primitives is a tale of bravery and self-discovery found in the ruins of a dying world, where the darkest sides of human nature are revealed.

Maybe I should have read this

Wow did I have a terrible time getting into this book. So many rave reviews and I just wanted to throw it against a wall. I think I could not stand the narrators. They made everything sound insipid. Complaining, immature kids. By the way this is a book meant for adults not young adults, right? Finally I began to care about the outcome, I think in Las Vegas. Now I am ready to listen to the next book in the series. So maybe I should buy the book and read, not listen to it.

Wow, this book..

This book was an amazing listen. I’m in bed recovering from a surgery that limits my mobility and am so thankful to have found this masterpiece to help take my mind on an harrowing, exciting, thought provoking adventure. The narration is top notch and the story is one that will stick with me for a long time. Can’t wait for the next book!

Well done!

I dont write too many reviews.
I wanted to write this short review because I want to encourage people to give it a listen, and because the author asks his readers to do so at the end.
I have listened to almost all PA books out there, and have read the ones not in audio form. This book is up there. It leads, at the end, to a sequel but one can be satisfied with it as a stand alone.
The book is well researched and you can tell the author put alot into it. A lot of PA books are just ripped from templates it seems. This one is not.
It's 1st person taken from two POV's. Both POV's do meet at the end.
It's a good pandemic PA book that I recommend.

the government creates a virus to scare the world
and then creates a vaccine to depopulate the world
