Book Description

23 July 2013
In the distant past, the leader of a Neanderthal tribe confronts the end of his kind.

Today, a computational biologist, a Navy pilot, and an autistic boy are drawn together by the ancient mystery that gave rise to Homo sapiens.

Planes are falling from the sky. Global communications have ceased. America stands on the brink of war with China — but war is the least of humankind’s concerns. As solar storms destroy Earth’s electronics and plunge the world into another Ice Age, our civilization finds itself overrun by a powerful new species of man...

This brilliant thriller takes readers to an all-too-plausible tomorrow that’s as scientifically rigorous as it is wildly imaginative.

Jeff Carlson is the international bestselling author of Plague Year and The Frozen Sky. With Interrupt, he brings his forward-thinking fiction to a contemporary setting, ready to claim his place among writers such as Michael Crichton and James Rollins.

About the Author

Jeff Carlson was born on the day of the first manned moon landing and narrowly escaped being named Apollo, Armstrong, or Rocket. His father worked for NASA-Ames at the time. His granddad on his mother’s side was a sci fi fan whose library included autographed copies of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy. Both men were strong, early influences — and in the high tech 21st Century, it’s easy to stand with one foot in reality and the other in thriller novels.

Jeff is the international bestselling author of Interrupt, Plague Year, and The Frozen Sky, hailed by Publishers Weekly as “Pulse pounding.” To date, his writing has appeared in fifteen languages worldwide. Readers can find free fiction, videos, contests, and more on his web site at www.jverse.com.

2.0 out of 5 stars Neanderthal apocalypse 29 Jun 2013
By Me read TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Apocalypse by Neanderthal? I just couldn't get my head around it.

The world comes to a standstill after a series of Electro-Magnetic-Pulses and solar flares. In true apocalyptic fashion it's survival of the fittest and in this case it would seem that a person's survival efficiency is dependent upon the colour of their skin and/or where they rank on the autistic spectrum. When some of the survivors started communicating by 'singing', I'm afraid that was game over for me.

It seemed to take a long time to get going and longer still to bring all the characters and stories together and by the time it did I had lost interest. I never really connected with any of the characters and didn't really care if it all worked out for them or not. I'm disappointed. It sounded so good, in theory, and had 'my kinda book' stamped all over it.

It seems like a lot of thought and research has gone into this and it's definitely a unique new direction in Apocalyptic fiction...I just couldn't warm to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Human, Interrupted 13 Jun 2013
By P. Stokes VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If choosing this as a holiday read be prepared to spend your time completely lost in the pages of this book. With a timely reminder that for all humanity achieves one swipe from the sun can change evolution dramatically, not to mention the issue of the Chinese - as solar electro-magnetic pulse leaves the US vulnerable to attack, Interrupt has this fascinating scenario to capture the imagination of the reader from the start.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much going on 1 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There was just too much going on in this book for my liking. If you like fast action Sci-Fi movies, well then this book may be for you, but really I found it too hard going and generally boring.
As the mother of an autistic son (Asperger's Syndrome), unlike one reviewer, I didn't feel that it was insulting to people with ASD, but I did find it expoitative. This would have been okay if there had been some relevant and useful purpose for it, but there wasn't and the ending was rushed, and you were simply left feeling "what was the point?".

3.0 out of 5 stars Starts well but fails to deliver 15 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a story of survival after civilisation is wiped out by the Electro Magnetic Pulses (EMPs) resulting from solar flares; a novel and thought provoking slant on the initiation of the end of the world as we know it.

Not only do EMPs knock out technology they also activate a latent Neanderthal gene in those on the autistic spectrum. The newly formed Neanderthal tribes communicate by singing and seem far better adapted to post technological life than their homo sapien cousins.

The book starts well and for the first third is for me a real page turner but then seems to tun out of steam. As if the author had a great idea to set the scene but then doesn't know what to do next.

I really struggled to finish this book which was a shame after a promising start.

3.0 out of 5 stars To silly to be really good 26 Aug 2013
By Chris
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This might have been more credible if the 'pulse' had driven some people plain crazy but turning them into Neanderthals? The end is too abrupt. Apart from that, it is pretty well written and the story starts well before drifting off in a pretty boring direction. Not bad for a slightly drunken holiday read.

2.0 out of 5 stars A little disconnected in the telling 21 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the book disjointed and though the concept of the plot was feasible I found it meandered without a constant thread for the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Promised much, delivered little 18 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story line is what attracted me to the book, the scope invited an interesting, part informative part speculative thriller on a somewhat under-tried topic. This demanded good style, emphasis on the right issues at the right time, and believable characters. Unfortunately the book delivered little of each, very laboured and wandering.

I can't see me trying any more from this author.

This book, which involves ancient mysteries, is a real page-turner, and a novel of the jaw-dropping variety.

Entertaining, original, and better than Dan Brown!
