An interesting story - that serves as the basis of a great film
29 March 2016
I really enjoyed this unusual piece of fiction. I'd seen - and liked - the movie (The Quiet Earth (Blu-Ray)), so I ordered this book (which has been out of print for years).
It's not a hard book to read, nor is it too long. The basic premise is just like the film ... A man wakes up to find himself alone in the world, apparently the tragic result of a failed science experiment. He seeks to figure out exactly what happened to everyone else. The journey he makes involves one of self-awakening. The book has a good twist as its ending, and one that differs substantially from the movie.
If you're a fan of apocalyptical fiction, you should enjoy this book.
