Set in West Los Angeles in the "near future", this story explores the fate of five Angelinos who suddenly find themselves facing the unthinkable--the end of civilization as they know it. We've seen many books and movies on similar subjects, but most are vehicles for high-octane kick-ass and (in the case of film) mind-boggling CGI. Jeremy's Run rises above the pack in that it takes the subject seriously. Each of the characters (even the dog) brings something unique to the situation, and through extensive dialogue between the friends, the reader can learn a great deal about how to survive such a catastrophe.
There are some flaws, however: In view of what transpires, I expected more carnage and devastation than was described; e.g., the story takes place a few miles from LAX (Los Angeles International Airport), but we only hear one jetliner go down. In real life, they should be falling like leaves. LAX lands a plane every two minutes (last time I checked--maybe more today), and with fried electronics there should be twenty or thirty planes spiraling down within minutes of the disaster. (I could be wrong about that--since I first posted this review, I learned that there is some uncertainty about just how vulnerable the average jetliner is to a hostile EMP attack; in view of this, the greater danger might be mid-air collisions when there is no longer a control tower to direct traffic above a busy airport.)
But that's a minor issue that only a nit like me would pick at.Read more ›
It starts out a slow burn but catches fire real quick as choices on how to survive dwindle.
The story is gritty and realistic with believable characters that you could trust. Well, maybe, as long as they don't buckle in this pressure cooker scenario. The prospect of what's in store for this group of friends is kick in the gut scary.
I bought the book, 'The Fourth Turning' which is sitting in my library unread. After reading about it in the Addendum to 'Jeremy's Run', The Fourth Turning is now on the top of my to do list.
I'm hooked. Gimme more.
In addition, this genre requires that the author pass on critical info to make the plot believable to the generally uninformed public without getting bogged down in too much trivial details. This the author excels in. He/she carries the plot along & sustains it as he/she builds believable characters that you can relate to.
I highly recommend this read and look forward to the next in the series.
