STAR RATINGS GUIDE
This is a dark and - quite literally- gloomy tale and it took a chapter to get into it, but I did.
I think it was the unusual scenario of having a character so isolated when disaster struck that threw me off. I also found Coral's dispassionate, logical mind a bit harsh to begin with. But the story, the world building (or destroying) is so well done, I wanted to keep reading and I really enjoyed it. So much so, I went on to listen to the whole series, which together was over 24 hours long.
PS. Coral is a pre-med, hiking, camping superhero who gives me major post-apocalypse inferiority anxiety
