Hubert's Peak has a great premise but is not utilized enough. I like apocalypse fiction and books about Hubert's Peak are very rare so I decided to try this one. It was a mistake, this book is not worth the money asked for it. First of all it is not edited worth a damn. It is full of typos, words are merged together on every page and paragraphs are falling apart through the whole book. Sometimes it is hard to read it like this. Please, please re-edit this book so that it becomes more usable.
Story telling is dry, it looks like events are just listed one by one with no in depth engagement. In my opisnion there should be more descriptions of characters, surroundings, settings and stuff used by the people in post apocalyptic world.
Leading character is quite dull through most of the book and final event with a crazy serial killer seems to be totally out of place. Like it is added after the book was written because author did not have enough content. I think the author didn't make the most from the post apocalyptic set of the book.
The book is worth maybe five dollars and that is only if the author edits it properly, otherwise don't bother.
Self publishing is fine, but hire an agent or editor to review your work before you sell it.
Amazon - You should be embarrassed to even sell this thing.
