STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Beautiful, thoughtful, thought provoking. A redefinition of its genre.
💚 The intricacy of this novel is staggering, imagining the impact of men’s disappearance from society down to the last electrician.
💜 Small moments made a big impact. A memorable one for me involved a female character scaring off an aggressive male, a scenario that turned the usual post-apocalyptic dynamic on its head.
🧡 In what I can only describe as sorcery, I came away from a book about a devastating plague feeling uplifted.
🤎 I'd compare this to a World War Z style telling of a The Children of Men style disaster with the conscience of The Handmaid's Tale. I went too far, didn't I…
💛 One extra tidbit: The realism of this book in describing life under a pandemic is all the more impressive given that Christina Sweeney-Baird finished it in 2019.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 I wouldn’t change a thing about this excellent production. Having a book read by eleven separate voices felt decadent in the best possible way and made it much easier to differentiate between the many characters.
