When this Epoch story began to unfold, I found myself thinking what would I do should I awaken in a situation where I had no idea of my identity. All of the familiar things that would be a part of life today would become irrelevant such as the electronics we find so important to us now. Learning to live and find ways to sustain life with necessities such as food, shelter, and maintenance of our health would be a challenge nearly impossible for some. This novel brings you up close to the main cha ...more

Book is told in the first person which adds to the story. I really liked the main character he did seem to look at both sides of each situation. Everyone has woke up with no memory of who they are, what they do, nothing. There is also no electricity which really adds more problems.
They have a serial killer, gangs, of course food/water shortage. Some people woke up with uniforms on so they take that role (sheriff). Trouble is he needs much help to solve any crime.
Amazing twists & turns will ke

I like horror and dark, post-apocalyptic stuff, and this book did not disappoint. It had everything from the cataclysmic event destroying lives and leaving a bloody trail, turmoil amongst the people for how to continue life, reversion to survival of the fittest, murder, war; the list goes on.

But it was so much more than that as well. It had great, memorable characters and a deep story that teaches you something, not by preaching, but by asking questions and introducing situations and letting th

Postapocalyptic Thriller
How do people cope when they all suffer from amnesia? How can a society function without the simplest footing?
The epoch begins after an apocalyptic event that wipes out memories as well as rendering all electronics useless. The one saving grace is that people have or develop a physical remembrance of their former skills. Not that it makes life simpler. The struggle for survival brings out the best in some characters but the worst in others.
The main protagonist whose ski
Epoch has it all. It's a murder mystery set in an apocalypic world where there is never a dull moment. Told in the first person, which I liked, the main character meets up with other survivors, some of them likable, some of them not, and some who add humor to the story. Due to the Epoch, the power has been knocked out and everyone's memories have been wiped as well. As they try to figure out who they were before, the people are given new names, assigned jobs, give medical aid to those who need i ...more

I don't read a lot of science fiction, but the description of Epoch on Amazon intrigued me. Epoch is a fascinating science fiction/metaphysical novel that gives readers far more than one would expect from a dystopian story. What I loved about the book is that it creates for us a futuristic world that has undergone a catastrophic event rendering all electronics useless and taking away everyone's memory, while allowing us to also examine society, beliefs, morals, and identity. Embedded deep within ...more
