Really enjoyable debut novel
on 9 February 2014
Tom Ward has written an excellent story here. One which, although doesn't venture far from the familiar road of immediate post-apocalyptic future, but still feels fresh.
A really enjoyable (if that's the right word) story following one young man's journey after most of the population of Britain have dropped dead from an unnamed purge (disease/weapon?).
The story left room for a potential sequel and i would happily pick that up to find out what happens next.
The word play between characters could be better and there is one character (you'll know who) over which i questioned whether the main character would really stick with her for that long, but they're only real criticisms I have of the book and i'd put that down to Tom being a new author, something which he will develop and improve upon over time.
