A realistic type of dystopian novel chilling intriguing and altogether believable Set in a Swiss forest in an isolated hotel Jon a historian attending a conference is caught up when the world goes BOOM Nuclear war has broken out most of the world s major cities are lost communication is scratchy and transport non existent Jon takes it on himself to record what has happened from his point of view and we are reading his journalThe fear the hardships a sense of grieving are all well recorded Not knowing whether his loved ones have survived never mind if he will see them again really starts to hit home for Jon And with winter coming on food scarce plus the real possibility of radiation poisoning the survivors start getting cabin fever and turning on themselves and each other And in the background at all times is the thought of the murdered girl found in the water tank and which of them put her thereI did really enjoy this book the isolation and fear come over well Not knowing what is happening in the world if you are all alone with a small pocket of people or if others are around would be terrifying The dog eat dog world as we know it is magnified and intense Yet the promise of small treats like listening to a song or eating chocolate is an uplifting and joyous occasion It brings the world we take for granted into a clear perspective Recommended

NOW AVAILABLEi was offered an e ARC of this book and encouraged to go in blind i read the synopsis obviously to make sure it was within my admittedly very broad reading tastes and from that i gathered that it was a locked room mystery with a twist a young girl s body is found on the premises of a swiss hotel that is still standing in the aftermath of a nuclear war that has destroyed most of the world leaving twenty people struggling to make sense of this altered global landscape and now also a murrrrderrrrrr the blurbs name dropped Stephen King Agatha Christie The Girl With All the Gifts Annihilation calling it nightmarish a dystopian psychological thriller haunting a combination that made me think this was going to be Clue The Shining The Road and that s a big old ball of YES PLEASE for karendo those blurbs accurately convey the tone and content of this book weeeeellllll again i was encouraged to go in blind and i don t want to make decisions for anyone else but mother nature gave us spoiler tags so imma use them not to talk about any actual plot spoilers but to share broadly what this book feels like to read which expectations were met by the readalikes and which were not so it will be tonal spoilers only to click or not to click think of it this way say you saw the trailer for The Cabin in the Woods and thought ooh a horror movie and then you watched The Cabin in the Woods and realized it was just pretending to be a horror movie did you feelA misled and crankyB delightedC what s The Cabin in the Woodsif A view spoiler if B do not view spoiler if C put down that book ya nerdsoview spoiler1 this book is not scary not even a little bit i m not sure why it tries to set up a spooky vibe early on and why the blurbs perpetuate this fallacy with their Stephen King co shenanigans it does take place in a hotel like The Shining or like Security for that matter and the stress of isolation and the END OF THE WORLD does make some people behave erratically or act out of desperation but it s not ghost twinsies and shriveled bathtub ladies it s ordinary human panic because the end of the world is scary especially when you re far from home you re stuck in a hotel with a bunch of strangers who don t even share a common language you don t know who can be trusted you can t contact your loved ones so you fear the worst you have no idea what fresh hells are still to comelayering on a supernatural stressor on top of that would have been some excellent intense icing and the seeds of mayyyyybe haaaauuunnted were certainly plantedWhat interested you about the history of the hotel Well you know this hotel has a pattern of suicides and unexplained deaths Even a couple of murders in the eighties and nineties The most recent owners are pretty shady hard to pin down The place has been sold and resold a lot due to bad press Also because a famous serial killer stayed once My work wellwhat I was planning to spend my time in the hotel doing was mostly write biographies of the people who died here and I sometimes feel that there might be people in the hotel than we know about It is such a huge place It plays on my mind And it s a very noisy building a lot of bangs and bumps in the nighti m not saying i begrudge the attempt ambiguity is always welcome here for a while i was enjoying the shiverylicious The Silent LandHouse of Leaves vibes from this and the sheer number of times characters voiced the maybe we re all already dead idea was like a siren s song but when nothing spooky ever actually developed it was clutter without conseuence 2 this book is not a mystery not really there is a dead body there are suspicious people there are secrets and red herrings and misdirection the protagonist investigates in his own way who killed the girl but this is not the novel s primary concern and the thread is dropped for a large chunk around the book s midsectionso what is this book thematically it is like Station Eleven than anything mentioned above its focus is largely upon establishing connections and retaining humanity or not in the wake of a cataclysmic event it is very much about people not people as murder suspects but what people feel and how they interact it s about regret forgiveness kindness society law responsibility making peace with the past overcoming the barriers of language and culture political ideologies what we owe each other as members of the same species etc but also what happens when desperation incites violencefor me the horrormystery detours didn t contribute anything except confusion once the book settled into its sociological track a book with this line The only meaning we might have left as a species indeed the only thing left that might matter that might keep us motivated to get up in the morning is in the small acts of human kindness we show each other and in my compulsion to be helpful useful to keep things moving forward I ve mostly forgotten to be kindain t never going to be a horror novelthere s violence yes many different kinds of it but anything remotely supernatural feeling is redirected if anything it s humanist horror as one character claims An absence of meaning that would be the scariest of all things it also uotes Graham Greene muses on individual freedoms and community responsibilities and argues whether suicide is an option for many it is but not for our guide through this situation The thought had occurred to me once or twice would killing myself really be that bad considering Did I want to see where we and humanity as a whole ended up Did I want to see how much worse things got before they if they ever got better But the idea always repelled me As long as I could continue to be useful I d stay I wouldn t voluntarily throw my life away I d never think badly of those who decided it was too much because it was It is too much But I could have been in San Francisco when those bombs fell I could have been in Mississippi with my parents and I was in neither I had ended up in one of the few places that escaped total devastation and the idea of creating by giving in to despair seemed ungrateful somehow the thing is the end of the world doesn t need additional bells and whistles to keep a reader s interest the aftermath is enough the mystery plot resolves in a fine but too coincidental and certainly not fair play manner but the spooky atmosphere was not needed sez me hide spoiler

FREE READ The Last SUMMARY ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Hanna Jameson Hanna Jameson ☆ 0 REVIEW For fans of high concept thrillers such as Annihilation and The Girl with All the Gifts this breathtaking dystopian psychological thriller follows an American academic stranded at a Swiss hotel as the world descends into nuclear war along with twenty other survivors who becomes obsessed with identifying a murderer in their midst after the body of a young girl is discovered in one of the hotel’s water tanksJon thought he had all the time in the world to respond to his wife’s text message I miss you so much I feel bad about how we left it Love you But a. Jon Keller has travelled from his home in the US and is staying in an isolated hotel set amongst the lush green forests of Switzerland whilst attending a work conference His morning begins as normal in the hotel s dining room until news starts to filter in from around the world of nuclear attacks on major cities indeed the whole of Scotland appears to have been obliterated As expected people start to panic with many abandoning the hotel and heading for the nearest airport and railway stations however travel and life in general will never be the same again for those who survive these attacks and the uest to reach airports or other forms of transportation is futileInitially the first thing to be lost is communication notably the internet so after initial news reports there is no information for uite some timeThe story follows Jon s attempts to describe what happens to the twenty hotel guests who decided to stay Switzerland appears to have escaped direct attacks but unless they leave the hotel they ll never know to what extent they re safe or not He documents the daily events in the wake of the nuclear apocalypse together with his investigation into the murder of a young girl who was discovered in the hotel s water tanksThis was an intriguing scenario and the author s idea to isolate the hotel s survivors from the chaos and devastation elsewhere served her well up to a point as it created some tension within the claustrophobic confines of the hotel and forest There s something uite unnerving about a large hotel being relatively empty spooky to say the least and there had already been talk of the hotel being haunted but for me there was some relief when eventually using one of the few cars left at the hotel some of them decide to venture to the nearest town in search of food I personally was longing to know whether there were any survivors and if so how this would affect the dynamics of their situation Jon was a somewhat unreliable narrator and not particularly likeable either I did really enjoy the story in parts but felt frustrated by the ending and also by the fact that we were never informed of how the nuclear attacks came about who were the perpetrators and why It was however an accurate portrayal of how people would behave in a situation like this and was also a chilling reminder of how easily this terrifying event could become a reality Thank you to Netgalley and Penguin books UK Viking for my Arc in exchange for an honest unbiased review
