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!

The collapse of civilisation has never felt so elegant.

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
