The last man on earth is struggling to survive utterly alone, only to find that the last woman alive is barely hanging on while marooned on the ISS, kicking off the rescue mission of a lifetime. Helicopter aviation, near-future developing technologies, NASA - what's not to love?! The author's description of the book as "'The Martian' meets 'I am Legend' and 'Gravity'' is accurate. The story is fast-paced but not rushed. The characters are well-developed but not overly so. The reader is dropped right in to the action and it runs all the way to the end...hopefully with more to come!
I really enjoy the present-day apocalyptic sci-fi niche that Dean has carved out for himself and I'm chomping at the bit for more from him in this world of Solitude, Sector 64, or any other world that he creates.
Disclaimer - I was provided an advance copy of this book for editorial and review purposes. That said, I did purchase the book at launch and intend to also purchase the audiobook once it has been completed. I can't wait to hear the talented voices of R.C Bray ("The Martian") and Julia Whelan ("Gone Girl") bring these characters to life.
So far I have been very happy with everything I've read of Dean's and am a fan!
Dean M. Cole can write! Every time I thought "okay, this is it, he's got it!" or "she's got it!" he continued to throw everything at the two main characters. It got to the point where I was pretty sure that both of them were going to give up numerous times.
A story about what could potentially be the last two people in the world and one of them is stuck on the International Space Station is already a story that I would read in a heartbeat. Then you throw in that R.C. Bray and Julia Whelan are going to dual narrate it? Okay, now I'm salivating. Oh, and it's funny and heartbreaking at the same time like The Martian? Jesus, okay, I bought the book, let's go!
We're almost at the half-way point of the year and I believe that I may have found my audiobook of the year already. Ironically it follows a similar type story as last years -- but this one has even fewer people in it.
There was a part of the book where I was a little worried around R.C. Bray narrating it -- not because of him or his narration at all (he's seriously one of the best in the world and is the sole reason you're reading this blog today). It was because there was a character named Mark. And I couldn't get "Whatney" out of my head every time he would say his name. I was seriously concerned, but my concern didn't last as long as I'd expected. There was even a line that made me pause the audiobook: "...duck tape... Oh right, you're Mark Whatney and this is The Martian".
I honestly don't even have to go into Bray and Whelan's narration of this because it was spot on and perfect. One of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to. Definitely up there with The Martian as Bray's best performance.
Overall, Solitude is easily one of the best books I've read in 2017 and will be in my memory for years to come. I will gladly be recommending this to all of my friends and family -- especially those who loved The Martian (or enjoyed I Am Legend). Dean M. Cole has shot himself up to the top of my 'to-read' list and I will be eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.
I was given a free copy of this which has not affected my review at all.
