This review is from: NOD (Kindle Edition)
This book appeared in my Amazon-recommended-for-you-type-list, and I've been working through a few of the titles. To be honest, it's one of the best books I've read for a while. The characters are well put together, and the description of the area and events carried just the right level of detail for me. Set in Vancouver, I actually found myself using Google street view to get an even better view of where they were, and putting "sleep deprivation" in to a search engine for some more background info on what it does to you...
Each chapter generally covers a day in the collapse of all around us. Some timelines are loosely drawn at the beginning about how long it takes for things to break down, so you find yourself drawn down this one-way street, willing on the lead character.
I have a read quite a few similar-ish books recently, but this one stands out and I'd recommend whole heartedly. Other recommendations in the same vein are: "The Uninvited" by Liz Jenson, and a real favourite of mine, "The Dog Stars" by Peter Heller. I can't help but think about Dog Stars and Nod an awful lot - so I guess that means they've made a real impression on me.
