Daughters of January

Rate this book
Humanity has succumbed to a man-made plague. Only eleven people survive, by fleeing out to the middle of the Atlantic on a cargo ship. They’re an unlikely group of survivors: among them a middling French photographer, a frail hedge fund manager, and a manic purveyor of artisanal salad dressing. As the sailors struggle to adapt to their surreal new lives, they resort to preposterous power grabs, desperate trysts, and paranoid scheming. Ultimately their only chance to reboot humanity rests with the cult responsible for the end of the world: The Daughters of January.

E.Z. Rinsky’s Daughters of January is a suspenseful and relatable novel that is so poignant at times like these. The character development is excellent and the dialogue is intriguing. Quick and relevant summer read!

Reaching the final page of this book is the only thing that finally made me put it down. I finished it in a few days. And actually, even after I thought I had finished it, the characters continued to stay with me. EZ’s characters are just so vivid.

Right from the opening scenes, I totally bought into the intrigue among them in their little quarantine at the end of the world. Resonances with the COVID crisis were not hard to find……

And the pacing and plotting of this book are just so compelling that every time I needed to go back to my real life I couldn’t help reading a little bit further, a little bit further, a little bit further.

Daughters of January somehow fed my sci fi/escapism craving, which is stronger than ever in 2020, Year of Absurdity and Stress, while at the same time resonating with the insanity of our real life catastrophe in very satisfying ways.

Great read.

The Prophet Rinsky has served up a superb follow-up to Palindrome with a novel that could not be more relevant today. Where this could have been tiresome and cliche-filled, this story about the end of the world is instead a rich and honest depiction of humanity in all its self-destructive glory. The collapse of civilisation has never felt so elegant.

Yet again Rinsky proves to be one of the most riveting up-and-coming novelists of his generation. His storytelling talent is apparent throughout the reader's journey through Daughters of January. Highly recommend this book and look forward to future works from the mind of Rinsky.

An absolute roller coaster of a ride. 300 pages that could not be put down. Rinsky has a unique and thrilling take on What would happen if the last remaining people ended up in a boat together. So happy to have found this author.

Must read!

Interesting premise

Ihad hoped for so much more, given the description. I'm left feeling like there was something missing. Another 50 paperclips have ended the tale with some satisfaction

Rinsky has a way with words. A great way. Daughter of January is thoroughly entertaining from page one.
