it was ok
bookshelves: first-reads
Read from June 02 to 10, 2012

I received this book free through a goodreads give away. Overall it isn't my cup of tea. The book came off as a badly done version of the dome by Stephen King. The comparison because they are both about small towns that get cut off, and corrupt city government officials. On the plus side it is an easy read written by someone who has a talent for the written word, and there is a lot of action. It's a good versus evil story that takes place in a small town cut off and devastated by a tidal wave. The gang of meth heads that take over after the disaster are really unlikeable (there are numerous sexual assaults in the book). The reader doesn't get enough information about the good guys to really to balance out the yuck factor that the gang brings to the book.
