After reading about 25% of the book I already knew that it would be one of my favorites. It was just that good. It was steadily paced and very well written, descriptive, and you could feel the fear that the characters felt. We follow Dan, a father of one, and a husband who believes that his family may possibly be last people on earth after something wipes out everyone leaving them dead.
What I find interesting is that the start of the book is articles of birds and other animals dying in huge masses which has been actually happening in real life. The book itself makes you feel uncomfortable because most of the content is somewhat realistic and it's going to make you think. Which I believe makes for the best books.
Can't wait to read the next book in the series because all I want is more.
