Jan 25, Alfie James rated it it was amazing Shelves: I enjoyed this undemanding, but thought-provoking read. Bloody terrifying – a near future look at our dependence on yhorie for almost everything. And that title should really follow the same rules as this one – Last Light and After Light, not Afterlight.
Well done Alex Scarrow. I highly recommend this book. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. This book has a few other problems: Writing about the effects of a disruption to the global oil supply chain was an interesting idea.
One of the characters mentions Lord of the Flies and it’s an apt yardstick. He is also able to take a well aimed shot with a rifle, he had only recently acquired from a vehicle moving at speed! But can they slex like a phoenix from the ashes of civilization? To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
Looking forward to next sequel. One slight plot hole concerns Jenny’s journey, which doesn’t make much geographic sense.
Trivia About Last Light Last I took two things away from this read. Doimnos Light is told through multiple perspectives, and this is where it lost me a little.
This apocalyptic novel has a fascinating premise. There were a few errors, one of which made me chuckle. Andy, in particular, gets the Bruce Willis treatment. I loved how it made me think about how we, as the world, rely so heavily on oil and consider the terrible effects it would have should it ever be taken away.
The roads are closed to conserve fuel, because there are no flights there is no more imported food which soon leads to riots in supermarkets and then on the streets, and man regresses and gives in to all his worse instincts.
LA THEORIE DES DOMINOS
I enjoyed reading this, the first time in a long while that I’ve had that experience. It’s just a device to pin the story on, and I’m ok with that.
The reader will keep this in the back of their minds during any future confrontation between character, dominant and weak. Jun 30, Penny rated it did not like it Shelves: I enjoyed this undemanding, but thought-provoki It’s no work of literature but it is a more than passable thriller on a fascinating topic – what would happen if the world’s oil production was suddenly halted. Bloody terrifying – a near future look at our dependence on oil for almost everything.
LA THEORIE DES DOMINOS by Alex Scarrow
Much better to get it out on the page than in real life, eh? What happens to them and the disintegration of life around them is interesting enough and, in the main, well presented.
The story is gritty and not everybody gets out alive. I dare any of you to read this book and finish it with a clear concience about your carbon footprint, to not check the cupboards to see what food you have in and to wonder if leaving the city might be an ideas This was an excellent read of what would happen if oil production stopped and how vulnerable we are as a society. This book will make you think about going to the store and get some canned food.
