    This book was an SPFBO one and I must admit it was quite different from what I had expected it to be I would class this as a dystopia, kind of in the same style as 1984 by Orwell, as it s focused on a world where humanity faces the disappearance of many of its number There are vast amounts of people who just seem to vanish into thin air, our main character s mother is one of the earlier ones to goWe follow Peter and later Sophia, they are two of the population who haven t yet vanished, but This book was an SPFBO one and I must admit it was quite different from what I had expected it to be I would class this as a dystopia, kind of in the same style as 1984 by Orwell, as it s focused on a world where humanity faces the disappearance of many of its number There are vast amounts of people who just seem to vanish into thin air, our main character s mother is one of the earlier ones to goWe follow Peter and later Sophia, they are two of the population who haven t yet vanished, but as the numbers of disappearances increase they feel as though they can t meet anyone who hasn t been affected by a loss Each person they lose is a devastating blow to humanity, and every person lost is random and terrifying because there is no trace at all where they have gone Naturally, the world...

    Interesting twist on the collapse of civilization, which is a theme I generally find entertaining Unfortunately, while there were some interesting twists in this storyline, there seemed no resolution at the end I personally found the ending both unpleasant and grim.If I want grim reality, I watch the evening news I read for entertainment and I definitely was not entertained by this book Ver...

    The book had a lot of promise The plot was intriguing was didn t really pay off The story was set in the U.S., yet sounded British There were very long passages where either a character rambled or there were descriptive paragra...

    Interesting story I guess you d call it apocalyptic without the bang In that sense, it reminded me of The Age of Miracles the main difference being that focuses on younger characters.At times I felt like I was reading a secular version of a rapture story, and at others a retelling...

    DepressingThe good things about this book were how it takes all kinds to make a world, and we depend on othersthan we think But how depressing to see how we behave when something goes wrong, and how sad when society collapses.

    I feel like the author didn t really have an answer to the questions he spent the whole book posing The ending felt cheap and half hearted Books don t have to end happily or neatly tied up but I just wasn t buying what this book was trying to sell.
