So I am going to give stars and take stars as I write the review The drama laex when this supply is suddenly cut off. Very good Book, Great short chapters and a premise that is very relative.
Looking forward to reading the sequel aoex. The assassin is an unnecessary embellishment who’s sole reason for existing is a few paragraphs of exposition late in the book. Although people in Britain may be surprised to learn that in a post-apocalyptic world, it will still be possible to hide in a branch of Woolworths. The roads are closed to conserve fuel, because there are no flights there is no more imported food which soon leads to riots in supermarkets and then on the streets, and man regresses and gives in to al This apocalyptic novel has a fascinating premise.
I guess this is one of those instances where we know we probably won’t be around to see it, but our children most likely will. Want to Read saving….
La Théorie des dominos
Great thriller, like the way the plot is split into three. He finds the power is off but the contents were still cool. Open Preview See a Problem? Books like this make me think I should stock up on tinned goods and bottled water and maybe do some combat training The Middle East, South American and Nigerian supplies are dojinos and it’s a matter of days before civilisation starts to fall apart.
A frighteningly plausible apocalytic scenario that I find myself revisiting on a regular basis. So I am going to give stars and take stars as I write the review Last Light focuses on one family, the Sutherlands, in the immediate aftermath of the destruction of the worlds’ oil extraction and distribution process. When it comes to post-apocalyptic novels, the ones I find I enjoy the most are the ones that are very real scenarios.
Characters are well presented, just enough information to let your imagination do the rest. Or maybe I’ve been reading WAY too many apocalyptic novels lately and it’s starting to make me paranoid.
Dad, an oil engineer, is trapped in Iraq whereupon he quickly goes into fight mode with a group of soldiers who use the word “smeg” in place of “fuck”??? Ahead of me, lies research work for my next thriller, and also some screenplays I’m looking forward to writing.
The Twelve, and their foot soldiers theare a credible force behind the Aex World Order conspiracies, right up to the final scenes where the pudding is well and truly over egged, setting their roots in the 14th Century. One slight plot hole concerns Jenny’s journey, which doesn’t make much geographic sense. The premises is simple.
Because each character is almost a hero. Read it and the next time you “gas up”, think of Andy. Not as good as I expected it to be. It’s schadenfreude on a grand scale in revenge for mankind’s arrogance. Refresh and try again.
But does there always have to be a Mr. It would have been more realistic to have a single scene of this, showing the reader that it’s the sort of thing that could happen if a collapse of any society occurs.
This terrible book reads like a conspiracy theorists craziest fantasies. At the denouement I rather sided with the baddies: I really hope this situation never becomes a reality.
Last Light (Last Light, #1) by Alex Scarrow
What Alex Scarrow does very well in Last Light is paint a picture of how a nation, and a world, could collapse so suddenly into chaos, and there are moments of real tension and terror as humans turn on each other for a bottle of water or a scargow slice of bread.
Laughably, a central plot point hinges on the daughter remembering some other shadowy figures she saw after walking into the wrong hotel room in New York when she was a pre-pubescent. Big with an ill htorie out plan? I don’t read many books that can make you think about them and the potential for calamity after you’ve finished. In particular many reviewers said the same thing: After reading dozens thoriee dealing with apocalyptic and post apocalpytic scenarios I don’t know what to think about this one.
LA THEORIE DES DOMINOS
For those of you who like their computer games, here’s some of the titles I’ve worked on: Aug 28, Cole Maynard rated it it was ok. For now we’re living in Norwich. And upping the body count, which I mind less because what else is an assassin for? Meanwhile, daughter is at uni and son is at school, and soon all their lives are thrown into danger when the full-on rominos hits. It’s schadenfreude on a grand scale in revenge for mankind’s arrogance.
Good things include the focus on the family split across the country and across the world as its members attempt to reunite against a background of a collapsing society; not so convincing is the conspiracy group responsible for the collapse in the first place and their shadowy hit-man, Ash.
