The manner in which this story evolves is outstanding. For once, society doesn't go to h... in a hand basket or turn to mass lootings and shootings. There are a few bad people roaming but the government does an excellent job of getting the neighborhoods to work together.
One real surprise comes when Averie journeys to Stonewater to meet Bradley's girlfriend. And, the people in the Settlement are another welcome addition.
I really like the author's sense of humor in several places. I had to chuckle when Averie spoke about "Male Domestic Blindness"!
All in all, an excellent read which I truly enjoyed. There is also information concerning edible plants and manners in which to survive that added to the story line.
Most highly recommended.
This is what happens in Bev Robitai's excellent mystery, SUNSTRIKE. The earth's electricity is destroyed, and with it the modern way of life as we know it. Gone is technology, gone are telephones, gone is your ability to open tinned food - if your tin opener is electric. Gone also are the conventional police procedures and forensic methods, which is a clever way on the author's part to concentrate on the very essence of the who-dun-it novel the way Agatha Christie would have wanted it.
A super merger of crime and SF. A must-read.
I was left wanting more - what had happened with some of the side characters, what happens in another two and then ten years? I'm hoping the author will fill in the blanks and I will get another great read.
The author dropped hints along the way as to what might happen, who to trust and who not to trust, the odd red herring to keep us guessing yet keeping the reader in suspense until the very end. A very worthwhile read. Recommended.
It is a thought-provoking book without ever being preachy on the changes we'd need to get used to, and is certainly current given the massive solar flares that have made the news recently. It also gives us a wonderful array of characters, warts and all, and a murder mystery to solve.
Along with ideas of what skills we might need to learn the author drops in hints, clues and red herrings to make this a good read. Recommended
A very interesting study of how society and individuals would survive and evolve following the loss of all electrical based technology.
Not a murder mystery, not sci-fi, just a story of life in New Zealand without electricity, a very possible scenario.
