STAR RATINGS GUIDE
So Real, So Smart, So Gripping
🧡 This is like watching a Netflix series on the collapse of the world as we know it. It’s just brilliantly done. The style is fast paced, with multiple storylines and viewpoints. Some are tough to take, others lighter and easy going. The mix means there’s a good balance. There is some stereotyping and simplification of the human condition, but this is probably necessary with so many voices.
💚 I found the detail in this impressive. Very few apocalyptic stories delineate the end with such microcosmic thoroughness. Mr Birmingham has really thought this out… Anyone checked on him? You okay, John?
💜 It ends very suddenly, but worry not. There are two more books in the series. And at the time of writing, they are all included in Audible Plus (which is annoying as I’d bought them already, but it’s great news for others).
🧡 If you like the in-depth nature of this, try William R Forstchen’s After series, which the author intended as a warning bell on the danger of EMPs.
