The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe

This is an end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it book.

A virus suddenly takes hold on an island population. They're quickly cut off from the mainland and left to fend for themselves as one by one they die, go hungry and become desperate.

Only 6 people survive the virus. One of them is Kaelyn and this is her story.

She tells us the story via her journal that she is writing to her best friend Leo, who left the island a few weeks before the virus began. This is the only part that doesn't really work for me. The Leo storyline seems contrived and Crewe keeps trying to make it significant right up to the very end.

But the rest is pure apocalyptic drama. It races along. People die by the truck-load. We see the best and worst of human nature.

Update: The end of the world is getting closer!Megan Crewe is now infecting us all with her virus!!

  1. Great virus pic. Don't normally read this kind of thing, but it looks like fun.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
