Customer Review

on February 4, 2014
I was very disappointed in this last book of the trilogy. The first two - "Without Warning" and "After America" were much better. I found this one rather tedious. Birmingham repeatedly gets bogged down in page after page of descriptive writing that really adds nothing to the plot, and simply induces you to skip paragraphs, desperate to GET ON WITH THE STORY!! The number of times we have to endure descriptions of the devastation in America seems endless - and they're all pretty much the same. And the culinary contributions! I'm really not interested in the characters' choice of food whenever they take a meal. Who cares?

I also have to take issue with the super heroines portrayed here. Mr Birmingham obviously has a thing about dominant women. Alright up to a point, but his character Caitlin is simply beyond the
pale. A cross between Superwoman and Rambo, she would make old Jack Reacher shake in his shoes. I just don't buy it, and believe me, I'm no mysogynist. We follow the vengeance trail of three of these super heroines, all at the expence of what is really happening in this alternative version of the world, post "The Wave" and BOY is it a long trail.

The first two books were real page turners. This one is more of a chapter turner, and not in a good way.
