Synopsis: A Dystopian novel which follows quite a few characters around their survival journey and how their lives were interlinked.
My Musings: I really did not know what to expect when I started reading this book. But, I can honestly say that I was hooked from Chapter one. The novel takes place during a flu outburst that wipes out most of human civilization within a matter of weeks. The story follows a couple of characters who relay their backstory as they strive to create a new life. A few dies as they narrate and a few keeps up the untold parts and continues.
For me, the whole book was a giant jigsaw puzzle that I put together and relished every page and second as I did. Each chapter was a delight and I hated every moment I had to put it down.
This book will make you stop and think about your past and present. I highly recommend you to read this book and I would say it will be a fast read only because you will NOT want to put it down.
