I love me a good post-apocalyptic book that can fill me with dread and despair, and this one certainly did. It was written before Covid, but the beginning especially felt very reminiscent to the early days of the pandemic. The whole thing felt all too possible, and really showed the worst of humanity that would *probably* be brought out should such an end come to pass. I loved the way the story was written, with excerpts from an unnamed narrator, and bits and pieces of other’s stories. I’d highly recommend this one to anyone who enjoys a good dystopian book

Decided to DNF this after the whole plot and content wasn’t sitting well with me.
