I don't read a lot of science fiction but I do enjoy the post apocalyptic or dystopian stories. This one is pre apocalyptic and poses interesting questions. If disaster was imminent, what would you do?
I really enjoyed this book, I think, mostly due to its understated nature. Once you know the end is coming what is there to be worked up about? Many characters and events in this novel are very low key, including Hank. Even bursts of violence and breakthroughs in the case seem less than exciting, as though all are just substance of going through the motions.
Some interesting things are foreshadowed, however, and I look forward to the next in this unusual series.
