A virus kills off billions in a matter of days. The world as we know it ends and now the few survivors are trying to stay alive.

This is one of the stupidest books I’ve had the misfortune to pick up. The writing is horrible, the characters are vapid, and while I expect sci-fi to be a bit out there, it needs to have some grounding in basic facts. If billions of people died in just a few days, how in the fuck are all the gas stations out of gas? They were sick, in bed or the hospital, puking their guts up, not running out there to fill up their tanks because they knew the world was ending. No one knew how bad it was because it happened so fast. Also, the phones and cells are out. And yet somehow these two friends are emailing each other. Apparently the internet is a magical place in this book where wifi roams free for all to use, no matter where they are. So much bullshit I had to give up at 11%. How did this crap even get published?


  1. I usually like apocalyptic books about a mass extinction of humans...but I'll take your word that one is a big loser :)

    1. I love post-apocalyptic and dystopian books. And I tried with this one. I really did. But the further I read the worse it got, so I had to toss in the towel.
