    5-star by Christopher Dagg for Readers' Favorite

    Daimones by Massimo Marino is an apocalypse book with a difference. It is attractively written and the language flows well. "Daimones" explores some difficult themes. Yet the plot didn't tire but shifted gear to an exciting finish. A great read.

    Daimones Trilogy. A story that is compelling and offers a glimpse into a realistic world that soon becomes something more. The elements of the plot allow the reader to explore human condition as well as a paranormal existence.

    The story offers a consistent flow, continuity in scene purpose, and progression of events. The characters are well developed and Dan is a solid, yet complex, main character that anchors the story.

    Excellent story with a different approach. Great at painting a scene with words. Can be read by all interested in a more thoughtful approach to current events and their impact.

    This is a difficult book to write a review for. I can only relate it to a film like "I am Legend" - a dystopian scenario where a man is trying to figure out his future against the odds. However, in a movie the slow pace and scenario make the viewing more compelling, and ultimately it'll only take a few hours at the most.

    Even though not SciFi, "Castaway" and "The Life of Pi" are other examples that work well as films.

    In a book, it is very difficult to maintain a pace that would keep me engaged.

    Diamones is written like a diary, and a lot of the times I was frustrated by the constant explanations, repetitive descriptions, lack of events and characters, and inconsistencies. For example, there are no chickens and yet two months after the "event" they eat eggs!

    However, in the latter third of the book, I wanted to read on to find out what the point was... I very nearly stopped reading, but something compelled me to continue.

    Anyway, I don't want to give a spoiler but in the end I felt like I was getting a lecture. I was raised Roman Catholic and so a lot of the lessons the author was trying to give were not wasted on me, the idea has some merit. But, it was too "intense" - too much...

    I toyed between a 2 & 3 and decided on a 3. It is just not the kind of book that I would read again, even though I will be thinking about the ideas. Much in the same way my religious studies will always remain with me for life. As human beings, we are capable of much and yet fail all the time.

    Like a lot of other people here I quite liked this book. In a way it reminded me of a sci-fi movie, which was made in the 1980s called The Quiet Earth. In Daimones everyone leads a normal life until a certain cut-off date after which everyone is dead with a few rare exceptions. For Dan Amenta and his family that must have been quite an ordeal being surrounded by dead bodies - in The Quiet Earth everyone vanishes, although I wonder if this would be more comforting.

    What I loved about the book is how well the author keeps the action going - mind you that's not easy if you only have three people to generate it. Still, I read this book virtually in one Go because the author managed to keep the suspense high enough for me to always wanting to find out what would happen next.

    What I thought a bit ridiculous was that the back cover of the book lists a number of Amazon 5-star reviews. I don't think this book needs that kind of promotion it stands very well on its own.

    Science Fiction is not my usual genre, but I'd heard so many good things about this book that I thought I would give it a try. I'm so glad I did! Although at times scarily real and profoundly sad in parts, I just couldn't put it down. The characters are beautifully drawn,with all the human frailties that make them vulnerable. I really felt for them, when they woke up to a world that had changed forever. Their heartache was tangible as they faced a struggle for survival, with only each other to cling to for comfort. The descriptive passages, were evocative and skillfully wrought. I found myself transported from my dull rainy English environment, to the deserted streets of Geneva, where Dan, the central character, and his wife and daughter, desperately searched for other survivors of this cruel, culling of humanity. I don't want to give away too much of the story, suffice to say, it gathers pace nicely and the conclusion is very satisfying.

    Loved this book. Felt like it could really happen which means the writer did his job and lost the reader in this new world.

    At last, a post apocalyptic novel written for adults, written from a single point of view. This was well written with a believable characters and an interesting explanation. Although it is part 1 of a series, it is a complete book with a satisfying end.

    Daimones is an unusual post-apocalyptic novel in that even the apocalypse occurs quietly. It is a book of reasonable believable reactions in the face of an unreasonable reality. Dan and his wife and child appear to be the only humans left alive. They prepare for the inevitable degradation of resources and search for other survivors.
    The author immerses the reader in the thoughts of an intelligent, well-educated person facing the reality of living the rest of his life with all the "things" of our society, but without the society. It's not just about how you survive, but how you live your life in terms of values and behavior. If you want zombies and blood-soaked violence, this is not the book for you. If you want a book that makes you think a little deeper about values and the continuous misbehavior of mankind, read and enjoy.

    This is quite simply a brilliant sci-fi novel and story.

    It is a post-apocalyptic vision that is stunning in its breadth and complexity. It easily rivals the power of Stephen King's THE STAND and Neville Shute's ON THE BEACH.

    Animals are suddenly and mysteriously dying by the thousands and soon the people follow. Only Dan Amenta and his wife and daughter seem to have survived. They find themselves alone on the planet in Switzerland and begin the search for other survivors.

    Massimo Marino has crafted a powerful and entertaining novel that has suspense, action and plenty of anxious moments about the future. It is difficult to stop reading until you find the answer and whether or not they are in fact alone on the planet. The ending is also one of new hope and could easily make for a sequel.

    The first edition I read suffered from some significant editorial issues which hampered the reader's enjoyment. The author, to his credit, recognized this and the book underwent some serious revision and line editing by a professional. The newly edited version is stellar. Anyone who loves post apocalyptic sci-fi should read this book. I think now it is even better than Stephen King's The Stand.

    I now revoke my earlier conditional 5-star review and give it an unconditional one. The book is so much better. What a jewel!
