To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am a big fan of apocalyptic book series, but I have gone through a few where I lost interest in the first few pages. This book I couldn't put down. They style of writing is great, and although a bit predictable I still found myself loving how it played out. Looking forward to the next one.
Read in one sitting as I couldn’t put it down. Exciting reading of simultaneous events unfolding in multiple locations with everyone fighting to survive. Need to read the next one to find out what happens.
I am now on to the third book in this series and whilst everything is a bit predictable I find myself enjoying the books and there is the occasional turn that makes you sit up and read more. Quite good.
I love dystopian/disaster books but so many are just echoes of eachother. This book has a great, fast paced storyline with multiple viewpoints from different characters. The characters are interesting, relatable and real. The book manages to build a dark, realistic and exciting story with factual information and creates a very plausible and possible world extinction event. Graphic without being glorified, dark and very human. Already got book 2.
A very good read leaving me wanting to read the sequel. Set in the future (not so distant) with the implication of a nuclear attack by N Korea n the US continent, it relates the story of 3 guys and a girl thrown together in Times Square and their tricky trek north after all power vanishes for good (?) after a probably EMP strike. The novel goes into their backgrounds their trials on the journey to the original home of one of them as well relating the effects of the blackout on his family who he left a year earlier. It was gripping enough to keep me reading long after I should have put it down for the night!
