After watching the movie _2012_ today, I was definitely in the mood to read this sort of disaster-novel. And it certainly was entertaining! A fast and fun read, it had a lot of cinematic qualities, but was, unfortunately, a bit light on the explanations.... Though, I suppose that was part of what made it seem like such a believable book. The ending was pretty loose, but I don't know that there could have been a better way to end it. Still, it was a fun read and I would certainly read another book by Morris - he has a talent for both pacing and characters, that's for sure!
Not Bad for a different kind of "World Ends" type of book. The story was enjoyable. I wish I could say more but this Author did not leave any kind of lasting impression, neither negative or positive on me. It didn't knock my socks off but at the same time it was interesting enough to read.
Not what I expected at all. A sudden flood covers the earth's surface and 90% of the world's population dies. After a few days the water level goes back to normal. The story follows a group of people in London as they come to grips with what has happened. They begin to regroup and learn how to live a new life in a barren world. I like "apocolypic" stories. This one is good. A little too much "language" for my taste (f-word), but it's tolerable. Great characters and relationships. Very realistic.
Overall a good read. Didnt like how things were wrapped up at the end though. Left alot of questions unanswered. Still a good "survivoring the end of the world" book.
