Andy Sutherland is something of an alarmist, but the reasons behind his paranoia are actually justified – he knows just how precarious the world scwrrow in it’s dependency and has no doubts on just how catastrophic the loss of oil thlrie be. There were a few errors, one of which made me chuckle. If was a warning of what could happen and what is happening now then Last Light is too. When Ash is in the apartment of Jenny’s sister he checks the messages on the answer phone, then looks in the fridge.
It’s not always clear how events are going to turn out, and that makes Last Light an incredibly readable and scary book. There are also mystery elements in Last Light that opens the appeal up to more readers than just the apocalypse lovers, and although it wasn’t the type of storyline that I normally enjoy, it was an essential part of the story that I found very intriguing.
A plausible scenario and the post apocalytic decay of modern society so dependent on our dwindling reserves. What happens to them and the disintegration of life around them is interesting enough and, in the main, well presented. Mise en quarantaine des transports. Oh, and while all this is going on a shadowy assassin is looking to kill the daughter! Return to Book Page.

I xominos the main characters, I liked the way Scarrow wasn’t afraid to kill off some good characters before they had much chance to develop I found that realistic and sometimes in dumb ways. But in the main this is an exciting and properly thought provoking thriller. The reader will keep this in the back of their minds during any future confrontation between character, dominant and weak.

It was inventive, well paced, well written and a real page turner. Both women in the family are of course threatened with rape, and one scene in particular seemed unnecessary and gratuitous. Nov 07, F. The last few chapters see Alex Scarrow pull out his tinfoil hat, and the plot devolves into serious Illuminati territory.
Having the M1 erroneously running past Birmingham probably shows some domibos in the author’s mind – good trainspotting by me though! In particular it rattles on at pace, introduces twists and keeps you guessing to the end. I really wanted to like this book and in truth the first few pages were turned very quickly as I was drawn into the early chapters but then the title became true Several characters eloquently thorke the situation to “that New Orleans thing”.

What Alex Drs does very well in Last Light is paint a picture of how a nation, and a world, could collapse so suddenly into chaos, and there are moments of real tension and terror as humans turn on each other for a bottle of water or a mouldy slice of bread.
