Well that was quite a bit of fun. Set in New Zealand in 2030, the story looks at how one small village reacts and protects itself from rampaging hordes when the world's oil pipeline is turned off.

It could have been so much worse but the treatment given to this scenario by the author worked really well. Surprisingly it wasn't the usual post-apocalyptic dystopian bleak outlook a la The Walking Dead. Rather it was a celebration of the good people triumphing over adversity. The people were cheerful and resolute and there were moments of humour in the book. Of course it wasn't all a bed of roses and some victories were hard fought. This was a pleasant change from the usual offerings. 3.5 stars.
