Well it's certainly different from most other novels of its kind
on 15 August 2017
I've read quite a number of so-called apocolyptic novels all about the world ending and most of them begin at the end as it were. This one however does not. It actually begins at the beginning which is nice. It has a good eye for detail and tells the stories of a number of characters some of them cynical and some of them not. It explores a number of reactions from a number of age groups. However it has one or two flaws. For one thing it's odd that none of the characters think about this. There are a few people that didn't hear the 'broadcast'. One of them is a child of a religious commune yet noboy thought that the reason the boy didn't hear the broadcast might be that he was so holy that god didnt need to speak with him in which case the reacthion would have been quite different. The ending is a bit strange too though interesting. It's best to read rather than listen to though because the accents on the audio copy are strange to say the least. Happy reading.
