This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.

 


 

I halvandet år har 17-årige Fry og hendes familie siddet i tvungen isolation i deres eget hjem. De har mistet kontakten til resten af omverdenen. Sult og elendighed driver familien længere og længere ud mod vanviddets rand. Udenfor bevæger ukendte skabninger sig omkring i mørket, og Fry ved, at det kun er et spørgsmål om tid, før hendes hus bliver det næste, der falder. Familiens eneste håb er at blive reddet, men da den dag kommer, bliver intet, som Fry havde forestillet sig det.

Sammen med nabodrengen Timo, bliver Fry hvirvlet ind i et kynisk komplot mod menneskehedens overlevelse. Hendes venners liv hænger i en tynd tråd, men kan Fry redde dem, når de har allermest brug for hende, eller vil løgne og halve sandheder blive deres undergang?

 


 

All right, so this is an End of the World themed book! The first section of the book is a little different. She’s talking to her recording device explaining how she’s feeling and what’s happening around her. I actually thought this was very clever, an abnormality that works in the books favor. It makes the main character more relatable and the whole story more reliable.

Now whether you like the main character or not, can change your reading experience a bit. The language is very YA like! The main character is a teenager with a bit T, which frankly ruined the reading experience a bit for me. It was a battle for me to read this book; I didn’t have that joy of reading or excitement to know what happens next.

The book is easy to read, it has a nice flow to it, and it’s cool that you won’t stumble over a word or a sentence that doesn’t make sense.

In the book, each character has their separate chapter and it annoys me so much. I hate that kind of structure but many people find it fascinating. A lot about this book is build up on presumptions of what people like in my opinion

One thing that annoyed me more than anything is the fact that there’s so much conversation going on! They keep talking! To each other to themselves!

I’m not sure if I’ll read the next one only time will tell.
