It’s the best book I’ve read after A Song Of Ice And Fire! The characterization and the narration is incredibly amazing. It catches the reader’s interest from the first line to the very last word. Yes!
The story starts minutes before The Pulse occurred and takes us through the entire scenario in perfect detail. You’ll get a feeling that you are right next to the lead, Clayton Riddell and are experiencing each and everything. The craziers or the phone-crazies are easy to picture and seem scary. Clay’s allies, Tom and Alice are perfect and the way they survive is really intriguing. The major part of the book is about Clay’s journey to save his son and that he does! Or not! Well, the best part (as far as I’m concerned) is the open-ending, which is a treat for read’s imagination.
This book is amazing. I love it and I guess now I’ll be on a Stephen-King-reading-spree… It very well satisfied my hunger of always wanting more from any post-apocalyptic (specially Zombie) movie. From now on, I’m gonna switch to apocalyptic books instead of movies cause in movies you just get to watch stuff but in a book, specially by King you really get to feel the intensity.
Throughout the entire book and it’s events, I was right there with Clay and the gang and I’ll tell you what, I was so involved in the happenings of the book that yes, I did hesitate to pick up my cell when it rang!
It’s not a book it’s an experience and I really can’t have enough of it!
