Unrelentingly dark YA. 17 year old Alex is on a solo hike when EMP bombs are set off. Horrifying scenes ensue, and that's just in the wild- when she meets humans, that's when the real trouble starts. Really disturbing images and some pretty ghastly violence made this a hard read, but I struggled through it hoping for some kind of redemption or hope- yeah, not so much. This read more adult to me, just for the level of horror and the utter hopelessness.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
