I hung in there until***SPOILER***the main character was bugging out to make the 300 mile journey to find his wife and kids and FORGOT HIS GUN AND AMMO ON THE KITCHEN TABLE!!!! Hard to continue after that.
It stutters and starts a bit... Dwells when it shouldn't and races when it mustn't! For example, there are almost as many pages dedicated to 36 hours spent under a tree in the rain (where NOTHING happens) as there are dedicated to the final 8 months.
Like other, the ending felt hurried and slapped together after all the time and detail spent on some other minor incidences.
But all that aside, this story has real promise... While I admit that if this was offered by an established author I would have been hard pressed to offer 3 stars, I would certainly read the next offering by Lake.
I am a professional at suspending disbelief... One HAS to be, to be a Voracious Reader and to feed on the genres that I do! Unfortunately, this one just required TOO many instances and TOO extreme of suspensions to get a better recommendation.
For 0.99, give it a try... Just go into it with reasonable expectations and you should be just fine as there are some good characters, a fair basis and a decent storyline to be had here.
Why not 5 stars, hmmm, well because it may be about just an average person, but - man is he dumb. Still overall a good read.
Conversely, Bill does meet some nice people (including Joan and Jake). The real star of this book is Brit, 14, who tags along with Bill attempting to get to her grandparent's home. Her experiences in her early years will make you cringe.
The epilogue is poignant and will bring tears to your eyes.
