game. There just does not seem to be any end to it. The President of the USA orders a full scale nuclear attack on countries who are the "enemies" of America - that is the rest of the world scuppered then - without knowing who was responsible for the EMP attack (sound familiar? 9/11? The war with Iraq, perhaps?), ending his announcement for this to those who are left with the words "God Bless America".Read more ›
This is eerie. Frightening. And there's still book two to read!
Its a genre that I havent really tried before - that said, I do like sci fi and also diaster type stories, so this book wasnt difficult to get into. It was so believable that it makes you wonder how prepared we are now in real life for an event such as this and certainly got me thinking!
I now NEED to read the next book to follow the next part of the story :)
There is also enough information about the military aspect that comes through from the author's background and experience to give the book the realism it needs, only one point - I had to look up what a SAW gun was, (squad automatic weapon) basically a machine gun I think, but then I have no experience of guns.
Looking forward to the next one.
If you have looked at my list of books that I'll be reviewing this month you would have seen that it was very heavy on the whole end of the world theme. So what better way to start June off by reviewing one of the many dystopians that I have laid my grubby paws on this year.
The End is book in the New World series by G. Michael Hopf, you will be glad to know I have books 2 and 3 ready to go in the coming months as well.
So what is The End about, the tell tale mushroom cloud on the cover, which always gives me a shiver, tells me that nukes are going to be involved but how did it come to this?
It starts of in the year 2066 where we meet Haley the daughter of Marine Sergeant Gordon Van Zandt, she is telling the story of her father and the events that lead up to the destruction of the USA and many other parts of the world. The story is told from many different view points, Haley we hear from at the end and the beginning, we also hear from Gordon POV, the POV of his Marine brother Sebastian and Brad Conner the future President of the United States.
Gordon Van Zandt we first meet during his brutal tour of Iraq in 2004 where he shoots an unarmed Iraqi in a Mosque, when then move forward ten years where he is living in suburbia in San Diego with his wife and two beautiful children, living an idyllic life away from the terrors that have been striking Europe attacking innocent people, the US has been safe so far but that is about to change.
Seattle is attacked, then the worst happens to the rest of the country the power goes out, cars die, planes drop out of the sky but still nobody seems worried, nobody except Gordon who fears and knows the worst, an EMP has been set off.Read more ›
