This one has everything. Annoying smug characters living off the grid in their eco – luxury development in the woods. An effective combination of a personal journal left behind, interviews with relevant characters in the present time, snatches of news from the eruption of Mt. Rainier (if you think Seattle is a mess at the moment, you ain’t seen nothing) and historical references to Bigfoot. It’s a really wonderful mashup and those smug characters really grow on you as, at least a few of them, evolve to deal with the threat.
And, if you’ve read WWZ, you already know that Max knows how to write. And he does a really good job here. Enjoy!
