no spoiler review
This book was recommended by some enlightened human on Library Twitter. I tend to love almost any book that falls into the apocalyptic fiction category, so even though the audiobook was THIRTY-TWO hours long, I still downloaded it without hesitation. Let me just say, I was absolutely obsessed with this book. I could not stop reading it.
A lot of people are comparing this book to Stephen King’s, The Stand, and they are correct, the books both feature a plague and a trip to Las Vegas. However, I thought the more important King similarity was the powder keg politics of, Under the Dome. There was also a lot of scientific and technical problem solving that reminded me of Andy Weir’s, The Martian. I am not saying this book is unoriginal or plagiarized in any way! This book is its own fantastic horror show, with some familiar elements found in other exceptional works.
If you enjoyed any of the above titles or anything apocalyptic, you are likely to be as consumed by this book as I was. This is a strong contender for my book of the year. Check back in January to find out what my official selection is!
