But I got to the end and it was worth the journey. I wasn't sure how it would work - how there even could be a satisfactory ending - but there was and it did. And for that I admire this author. This could be mainstream and another Andy Weir? With a good editor and a film deal, it would translate beautifully onto Netflix or even big-screen.
Morris builds a sense of dawning horror by revealing bits of backstory from different sources as the journalist hero uncovers how a boy band brought the world to its knees. Despite the careful unveiling of the story, it never feels slow. In fact, I couldn’t put it down as I read it. Similar to The Stand, it got in my head and I found myself thinking about the realistic (too realistic considering what’s happening now) post apocalyptic world the author paints.
The first half of the book ranks with some of the best fiction I’ve read and although the second half didn’t quite live up to the first - it’s still outstanding, and the very last bit was just perfect. I can’t write more or it would spoil it, but there are some little surprises that keep you on your toes up to the last page.
A few side observations- few men can write a female lead that is both a regular human and actually a woman. Kudos to the utter lack of sexism. Ditto for characters who are people of color or gender non-conforming. What a relief to not have to cringe through the stereotypes so rife in fiction.
A post apocalyptic novel without zombies? Who woulda thunk it?
OK, I lied...there is type of zombie...but not what you would expect.
The elephant in the room?....The apocalypse is caused by a boy band....I'm getting this out of the way first...I thought it was going to be a comedy, based on that one line alone. it is anything but a comedy....ok, glad we got that out of the way!
This book is a story of a reporter trying to find out why the apocalypse occured, in an effort to prevent it happening again.
It is told in the first person and augmented by snippets of Fan Forum chat rooms, pop music magazines, album and concert reviews, personal journals and..... Reddit posts...yup...Reddit survives The Apocalypse....who said cockroaches at the back?!?
You might be put off by my description, but trust me, it is incredibly engaging, cohesive and coherent. The chat room characters are all very memorable and believable, the dialogue is easy to follow, the personal journals are quite harrowing and it is all happening with the background of terror, when just leaving a radio on, or walking into a fast food restaurant and hearing a verse of a song could propel you to your death.
This is the second novel I have read by this author, while both were post apocalyptic in genre, their approach to the idea of a world of survivors dealing with the aftermath is completely different!
Great characters, great stories and enough of a difference to make this a worthy addition to any post apocalypse library!
