Walking into your home & your parents quickly turning off the TV. Now, most would think “porn,” in this case it “the end of world” report. Instead it turns into “pizza & game night.”
After this the government, choose by “random,” the survivors of this plague to live in “POD’s” for at least one year. Which they are “hoping” give the plague time to kill itself off … or whip our mankind. Which ever comes 1st ….
Ms. Pickett’s writing is pretty good. She does not go into extreme detail of what the disease is … thank goodness for me, that gets to be far to boring … but does go into enough to know it’s pretty horrid.
The way she creates the character’s, she brings you to like or despise them. Like Josh, the POD’s prick, who is rude & slobby plus he think the world OWES him. You just want to crawl into the book & slap him around a few times to see if you can knock him into common sense. Then you have Eva, who is you MC, and you have decent feelings for her. She is a decent person, caring and honest, who sadly has to run into a few types of individuals that will make her wonder about the world.
Ms. Pickett’s describes a world, pretty much like the one we live in, facing a plague that many of have prepped for. Or rather it’s on their prep list, I think. The end of mankind by disease or plague. She does a great job, in my opinion, describing the government.
