How to describe this book...

It's a post apocalyptic story that follows a group of musicians and actors as they travel from town to town. It's also about a group of people who's lives are intertwined and connected because of Arthur Leander, a famous actor who dies during a production of King Lear on the very night that the Georgia Flu makes its way to North America. It's about how quickly (or not) we adapt to changes in our world, but still hold on to the past. It's about fear, survival, community, friendship. It's about then and now and how it all changed in just a matter of hours.

It made me want to go stock up on canned goods and bottled water. I also need to go buy a tent and one of those wind-up lights.

It's fantastic and I'm so sad I didn't read it sooner.

If your a fan of Oryx and Crake, The Age of Miracles, White Horse, The Dog Stars, The Passage, The Stand or just damn good books, then read this one.

(Just as good the second time around. again...but my timing could be better...thanks coronavirus for ruining world-ending viruses for know what I mean)
