A lot of the free samples on Smashwords are terrible, so I feel obligated to review the good ones. The worst thing about "The Days and Months We Were First Born- The Unraveling" is the title. The story inside is much better! I also thought it could benefit from being better formatted - it uses block paragraphs and lacks a hyper-linked table of contents.

But those are just nitpicks. I really enjoyed this post-apocalyptic novella. The main story is peppered with fascinating glimpses into the future of America. After reading this first book for free, I will be purchasing the rest of the series.

This book grabs you from the first page and it never stops. A story that keeps you at the edge of your seat and is darn hard to put down. The character, Martin, grabs your attention and before long, into your heart. The atmosphere is intense at times, and yet at others, your heart aches for the people involved. All in all a wonderful book! I believe that Christopher is on his way to being a well known author whose books will fly off the shelves.

I was attracted by the title, I this kind of books where everything is going to hell. The reading was intense through the book and thus I couldn't put it down. I usually read it before going to bed, but every night I stayed up late to read some more, just a bit more...spent about an hour every night reading it until I finished it. It kept me interested and for sure I am reading the second book, I already started it :D

Review by: Susanna C. Mahoney on May 25, 2011 :
This book opens with excitement on the first page, and continues to the very end. It is a futuristic story about a virus getting out of control and causes panic around the globe. The characters are caught in the dilemma of survival for the fittest and have to sacrificed their morals to exist in a violent society. The scenery is set in New York City with the Manhattan flavor.
This book is full with fast action, emotional impact and survival antics. It has the edge of technology that may be coming a reality on our children future. It opens the mind to think of strategic tips just in case of emergencies, you never know.
...”as if I were weightless: and cracked the very pavement... The surrounding building shook to their cores...with violent force”. This story continued with further graphic details as you turn each page. Don't wait check out this thrilling book. It is one of many coming closer to actual future predictions, not so unrealistic. This author has the gift and flair of unique genuine creativity' as if he is witnessing the future himself.

Possibly the best indie publication I've read. It's an intense, gripping, and well written story; or the first part of one, at least.

At times reminiscent of H.G. Wells and John Wyndham, the story follows the fortunes of a bewildered young man who is one of the few survivors of a biological apocalypse.

I'll certainly be reading the follow up.

I already read this book before buying (my husband's copy!) Want to support this author's work, though, and spread the word.

This was a riveting book. I couldn't wait to see what happened next. The author really thought about these characters and what their life would be like in this future. So looking forward to the next part. I think this young writer is really a major talent, bravo!!
