The protagonist is boring and really not likeable or relateable, the other characters are one-dimensional and it's evident the author hasn't spent any significant time in America, if he's been there at all. Interesting premise but let down by poor writing and characters.

A journalist forgets to get her camera out when witnessing a major event? Said journalist also decides to mooch about in a coffee shop instead of going to work (and is apparently still employed)? Girl who grew up on a farm in Iowa can't drive? An entire newsroom decides to shut down rather than report on a huge story affecting the whole planet? And that's just from the first 10% or so of the book.

There's suspension of disbelief for the sake of the plot and there's "I just wanted to get my protagonist in my apocalypse scenario". Fine, I might be able to get behind that if the protagonist was relateable, but she's so snotty and unlikeable that I couldn't go on. The fate of humanity in the hands of this selfish cow? Wow. The writing is pretty poor too, the author manages to contradict himself several times (usually on the same page). From another review: “It was like watching some strange migration.” No, it was not like watching some strange migration. It was watching a strange migration.

Gave up after the first few chapters.

Our plucky heroine is the shadow of Lois Lane working at what appears to be a 1950's newspaper despite the internet. People call her young lady and crusty old hacks regret being too old go home with her. But hey, their hearts are in the right place. Frustratingly, aside from the laughable newsroom, the 'red rain' premise has potential (who doesn't enjoy a good old fashioned end of the world?) but it is so thinly described and lacking in depth, emotional range or good descriptive prose that it reads like very poor teen fiction. Don't buy this unless you have never read any half decent adult speculative (or otherwise) fiction or indeed, any well written teen stuff. Makes 'The Hunger Games' feel like if it was written by Margaret Atwood in comparison.

As in my rating, "gripping in parts. . . " oddly confused detailing : overdone in parts; skipped in other parts where it shouldn't be. But compelling over all. I'd like to read the sequel.

A wonderful read - a super storyline with a terrific plot and great characters. Written with great assurance and aplomb. Now reading the series. Unputdownable.Highly recommended

I really enjoyed reading this book and managed it in 2 days. felt myself gripped and anxious through many parts. I had to turn the lights on at one point (the baby scene) because I felt so creeped out!

First review I have ever been compelled to write. I bought this book as it came up on my recommendations list and had a good star rating. Please don't make the same mistake. It is an absolutely terrible book. Gaping plot holes, awful writing and just plain old dull and you know the real kicker, it turns out to be a multi part!

Not great, but it kept me fairly interested. There were points where I got frustrated at the simplicity or overindulgence in adjectives. Overall though I quite enjoyed it. Enough for me to try the second book anyway.

Very good read. Not the usual 'end of the world' scenario with zombies after a flu outbreak. More creative thinking used here and still retained belief in reality.
