The first pages show the quality of literature here. Brilliantly written tale of cultist isolation, how easily led we are, until we aren't. No happy endings I'm afraid.

This novel seems to me, a bit underrated. I personally thought it was a brilliant tale. It does require some thought as it tends to use a lot of symbols to dig at something quite deeper and darker then what appears. Would make a really good book club discussion!

There is a nuclear holocaust on earth. Jon is in a hotel in Switzerland when it begins, his wife and two kids are at home in America. The internet stops working. He and his fellow inmates of the hotel seem to be the only survivors..a child has been murdered. Trust and reassurance and friendship are major themes in the book. However the plot is ragged. The characters two dimensional and the ending is meh.

This wasn‘t quite what I expected but it gripped me nonetheless. I found the emotional journey of the characters really helped me invest in them even when I didn‘t particularly like them at the start. The only thing I couldn‘t make my mind up about was the ending. I think it maybe tried to tie up things too neatly? But overall I enjoyed it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is an interesting yet frustrating book. It's an apocalyptic locked-room mystery, but the mystery is the least compelling aspect. The most chilling & compelling thing is what's commonplace & human: how to live together after the worst has happened. The trauma, fear, paranoia, & stress were vivid & easily imaginable, seeing where our world is headed. I found the book thoughtful & atmospheric & as expected, filled with persistent dread. ⬇️

batsy I think the mystery was superfluous & the story was already compelling with its focus on the psychological & philosophical aspects of life after the supposed end of life. I gave it 3 ⭐ because of how it tried to do too much to the detriment of its characters & their story arcs, but it's a definite pick for me. I was engrossed & disturbed. And as someone mentioned on Twitter about this book, historiography dies last, so yay for the humanities 🙃 2mo
TrishB Great review 👍🏻 2mo
mcipher You make it sound so compelling! I‘m curious about this one and I‘m stacking it to check out. 😊 2mo

erzascarletbookgasm The power of your review..even though you gave it 3 stars, you make others want to read it! 👏 2mo
batsy @TrishB Thank you! 🙂 2mo
batsy @mcipher It's an interesting read that I'm still thinking about! But it seems to be marketed as a mystery when it's not quite that. I hope you find it worth your while if you give it a try :) 2mo
batsy @erzascarletbookgasm Thanks Jessie ❤️ I realise I used the word "compelling" like 5 times, so I guess I found it pretty compelling ? 2mo
Reggie I totally cosign what @erzascarletbookgasm said cause stacked. However, I don‘t know if I can trust you again after The Laws of the Skies. Lol jk. Oof the week long slump was real after that one. 2mo
Cathythoughts Excellent review 👍🏻♥️ 2mo
batsy @Reggie 😂😂 I promise this is nowhere near the territory of Laws of the Skies! 2mo
batsy @Cathythoughts Thank you ❤️ 2mo

batsy I'm currently reading the ebook and finding it very intriguing! I like this cover a lot, too. 2mo
Hufflepuffle @batsy it is really intriguing! I put it down for a bit just because I have been struggling to concentrate recently but taking a picture of the cover reminded me how much I was enjoying it so I will definitely pick it back up again soon. 2mo

Mehso-so

The premise and setting were cool but the plot itself had a few too many cliches and the main character was kinda inconsistent.

cathipink This book totally bummed me out because I was right there with it for 2/3 of the book.... and then it went completely off the rails for the last 30 pages. Lots of cool ideas though, and I loved the genre mashup. 2mo
j9brown @cathipink Yeah, it had a lot of potential, but it really did a faceplant at the end there. 2mo
KatieDid927 Agreed. 2w

Even though the ending felt rushed and I wanted more detail, I still really liked this book.

The premise is one I haven't read before and I loved all the issues radiating from the central theme of humans just being honest all the time. Of course what do you do when your world built on truths starts to crumble? That's the journey this book takes you on through the main character's quest for the "truth" surrounding a suspicious death.
