Normally I seldom leave reviews, but this book had no reviews at this point, and it is definitely good enough that it deserves some.

Best:

excellent character development, especially the narrator, as well as all the other central characters, good, neutral or evil. Seldom one-dimensional, the characters are usually fairly well rounded.

Good:

The effects of a nearby nuclear explosion seem to have been well researched, and the effects of this over a long period of time seem likely and believable.

Poor:

The scenario suggested that caused WWIII is extremely unlikely, and threw me out of the story for a few pages. But this is a very peripheral part of the book, and one bad small note shouldn't destroy your appreciate of an otherwise fine performance.

I'd never heard of this book before, and I'm a newbie when it comes to Post Apocalyptic fiction, preferring my End of the World to be filled with Zombies...

I loved it, plain and simple... it's not an action-packed book where things are blowing up every five seconds, your hero is a Bruce Willis who shoots his way out of spots and baddies swarm our heroes with overwhelming odds... the story centers around a small group of survivors and their interaction - good and bad - as they try to figure out what has happened in their world. The characterizations are realistic and you feel for these people at the end.

I'm looking forward to reading more from this author!

I honestly don't know where to start with this review. I just knew I had to write one. Upon downloading a sample of this book, I was immediately drawn into the story and the characters lives. This book is about one mother's struggle to ensure her family and friends survival. It resonated deeply with me and I could relate to her on many levels. This isn't a "how-to" on survival and preparedness. It is the story of one unconventional family and their troubles and times immediately after a nuclear war. The war itself is basically background information. I would give this story a 5 based on plot/ storyline alone, except for a few of the characters decisions. However, there are a few grammar and spelling issues which don't really affect the overall enjoyment of the story. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good read. My review title says it all best though. I anxiously clicked the "next page" button and was devastated to notice my progress bar was at 100%. That is not to say it was a "cliff-hanger" ending... Just that I could've kept reading about these characters for a long long while.

This is a story of survival during and after a nuclear attack of the United States. It is such a page turner that I literally could not put it down. It has something special in the writing. It has such a spark of something not found in all books. It is that certain way of telling a story that can captivate you and make you feel like you are almost there. The characters are written so well. The author tells it from a female point of view, and it is so realistic that it is almost like it could be true. I found the nuclear information to be so intriguing that I intend to go and research some of her facts to see how accurate she is.

This story has in it what I love the most about post apocalyptic stories. The tales of how people can survive no matter what happens to them. These people go through some pretty tough hardships, but the subtle hope that is throughout this tale makes it such a good book. Although this lady seemed to be out of the ordinary in how she set up her basement, I do know people that are end of the world survivalists. There are people in this world that are very like her, so it was easy for me to suspend some belief in that area. The best part of this book is how it shows what happens after the bombs.

I really enjoyed this book, its twists and its characters. For those who like to constantly 'edit' books they read, you can deal with the very few errors in this one.

The storyline is very well-developed and my favorite books are page-turners you just can't put down until you reach the end. This is one of them! There was NO WAY I was going to bed until I found out what happened next....and then finished it and liked the ending very much!

I've read quite a lot of post-apocalyptic fiction, of different sub-genres, based on a wide variety of doomsday scenarios.
Some of these books have a good idea which is poorly put into the words.
Some others are written more than decently, but lack the strong story line or captivating language.
Some would feature bright characters worth taking with you after the book is finished.
Very few can boast all of those.
This book simply has neither.

But the last drop that forced me to simply abandon "Dust" (something that I seldom do) was... "The unholy union between Israel and China"? Seriously??? How much more ridiculous could the author get? Until that page she hadn't really come across as a wacko antisemitic conspiracy theorist preaching the world Zionist plot. In truth, I had to re-read that line to believe I really got it right indeed.

Boo!
