Top critical review
on 18 December 2015
The first three chapters are basically about David, the protagonist, travelling to meet his parents (complete with directions), meeting his parents, talking to his neighbours, eating, and other mundane, boring things, like brushing his teeth. The dialogue is forced. The action is non-existent. There's no character development at all. No sense of urgency, no tension. It's disappointing, because EMP-themed apoc fiction isn't well covered in the genre. Give this one a miss and read Flare instead, which is a much more enjoyable read.
