I purchased this book on Kindle, while scanning around for a new read, and trying a few samples. Thought I'd be brave and try something new and something Post-apocalyptic, as don't believe I've read from that genre before. Watched enough films and TV on the subject, so why not. Found this on the 'recommended for you' tab and with lot's of nice reviews, was tempted to take the plunge.
And it started off interesting me, with a young lad living with his parents out on some distant farm, away from most civilisation anyway. Unaware of all the mayhem the rest of the world has found themselves in...until the now extreme weather conditions catches up with them. Won't go on anymore for fear of adding spoilers, but his life is suddenly turned upside down and adventures pursue him.
Sadly, around the 20% read mark, I'd lost interest. A few grammatical errors put me off a tad, but so did the almost simple story. Nothing surprising happens, things always fall into place...a bit too easy for my liking and the story plods on at a similar slow pace. Was at no point looking forward to or wondering what was about to happen and it became a bit of a slog to finish it, even skim read a few bits.
So two stars, as it's ok, nothing special.
