Oh lord, once I had started this there was no way I was stopping until I got to the end. And I have now developed a healthy fear of mushrooms. That will fade in time, I love mushrooms. But some of the descriptions in here…well. You’ll see once you get there. A post-apocalyptic nightmare, a tiny microcosm of a claustrophobic research post, a young girl’s search for self identity, humanity’s quest for survival, this book will drag you in and don’t let go until you get to the end. And even then it’s going to haunt you, just a little bit. Brilliantly written, utterly compelling and chilling to the bone, read this is you’ve enjoyed the work of Charlie Higson, Max Brooks and Micheal Grant, The Walking Dead or Warm Bodies.
