Description

“Do not go gentle into that good night.”

Our World is ending...

How or why is unknown, but make no mistake about it, we are living on borrowed time. Millions dead in a matter of days, billions in a matter of weeks. Yet somehow through the destruction and rubble Lenny Brewster has staked his claim on survival.

A former Special Forces soldier, a current womanizing alcoholic and a hardcore survivalist, Lenny is a conflicted man. He doesn't care much for this world, but he'll be damned if he leaves it quietly.

    I can't simply say without qualification or some form of hedging that this book is actually a bad book. It is not inappropriate for me to explain why it misses the mark for me. In this way, one kind of person will avoid this book and another is free to seek it out and enjoy it. Why didn't it work for me? Action driven with very little character development. If I don't know who's eyes I'm looking through I'm not going to care about the characters. I start to root for the antagonists. Really. I want the evil, dehumanized, nefarious bad guys to win. I want them to wade through pools of the protagonists entrails. Yay! Descriptive passages constructed with interchangeable cliches. The writer has not opened a door into the scenery for me to walk through. Maybe we can have the characters take a Turing test to see if they are actually sentient. They mimic life, but they are not actually alive at all, but counterfeit beings whose analysis of their environment is based on a limited set of frequently repeated algorithms. For crying out loud. Read "The Bird Box", anything by Octavia Butler, Cormac McCarthy's, "The Road", anything by Gene Wolf. That said, the book has a certain superficial charm that should delight the Walmart shopper. Yah, I guess I'm a snob.
