I always enjoy a good post-apocalyptic book (guess that says something about me), and when I saw this one, was excited to find a new author. Had to finish another in-progress book before I could start, but once I did, I couldn’t stop.
I stayed up way too late reading, and then when the alarm went off, reached over for it again. Then found myself sneaking it in the gaps at work.
This is a well crafted book, with detailed characters and a totally believable sequence of events. Way too often I was thinking “that could be me”, or “I need to stockpile some stuff”. Occasionally the introspection and editorial commentary was a smidgen too long, but honestly there is a good message for people to think about, and if you think you’re getting bored, just turn the page and the action strikes again.
There were several plot twists that I didn’t see coming which really added to the suspense.
And if you’re worried about this being a self-published author (at least I’m pretty sure he is), don’t. This is an entirely professional book, well edited and proofed.
Note that I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.
