Crash by Michael Robertson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I am far from prudish when it comes to post-apocalypse fiction. Having suffered some of the same slings and arrows as Mr. Robertson, I was not prepared to give this book one star. I will say that you should heed the negative reviews that hammer on the graphic violence. I am no believer in human nature, and I can see humanity taking a nasty turn in the event of any apocalyptic scenario, but this did seem to push the limits. Running over a little boy's head after defiling him is a bit over the top, but I am not saying there might not be a twisted psycho out there to do such things, only, I don;t see that person gathering a squad of like-minded monsters. Also, there is one person obviously not on board with what is happening, yet he still turns on Chris when it is clear he was made to seem like he was not part of Dean's sociopathic assault on the gated community. That was hinted at after the scene with the dog as well as when he made eye contact with Chris at an earlier point.
Tread with caution.
I was provided a copy (audio) of this title in exchange for an honest review.
