wooooohoooooo its Friday

Wowzsers it is Friday and woke up to almost 700 likes on my face book page. I was overwhelmed and so happy . Today , I am going to review of IMPETUS  by Scott M Sulllivan . This was a great read

BOOK BLURB
When the world first heard about the meteorites, it was already too late.

Ten arduous years later, Mick and his small group of eight had adapted to the new way of things. With no clean running water, power, or forms of communication, the Earth went backward, taking with it almost everything they held dear. Survivors like Mick were forced to do the best they could with what they had. Because in the post-Impact world, alternatives were a luxury that no one could afford.

Now a deadly virus threatens those who were unfortunate enough to survive.

With the clock ticking down on their lives, Mick will navigate the deceitful webs spun by those that oppose his drive for salvation. And along his quest to prevent another catastrophe, Mick will rediscover what it truly means to be human.

                                                           ***

Impetus does away with the genre's tendency to dwell solely on the catastrophe, to instead examine the very-real human experience and condition behind a world-changing disaster.
 
MY REVIEW
  This is one book that totally took my by surprise. I was so totally engrossed in this book from the very first page. This book is a post apocalyptic book is very character driven. You are taken on a very wild ride that will keep you reading. It shows what people are like after all modern conveniences are no longer around . This band of people are living in a crime and poverty ridden remains of a city . They are trying to keep the civility in their little band of people,  They are sent backwards and have now clean running water or ways communicating with other survivors .They are lead by Mike . who isn't you typical action hero. He is just like you and me . He is a simple guy that wants to survive. He is a father and a survivor and using his wit to try and keep his kids alive for another day , You will be swept into their lives and you will fell , like you are part of the group. You will become a character. You will be cheering for Mike and his band, you will tear up and you will fall in love everyone in this book.
   The author has created a story that is so intense and guess what there is no lewd sex scenes or copious amounts of swear words or gory violence. This is a book that is about survival and the what you would go through to survive. Scott takes us on the ride of our lives . I sat down, thinking that I would just start reading . So as I started reading I was so totally engrossed . I had to get up and plug my laptop in and then went back to reading. I just couldn't stop reading . The pages were turning well into the night.  Scott created such a world that shows people at its best and worst . This book will rock your world . He created a complex world that will leave you wanting so much more. You will be very surprised and wanting more . You will actually come out of this book feeling hopeful.
   So if you are looking for a great sci fi book that shows the ability of men to overcome the evils of then of the world Scott Sullivan is the author for you , If you want to read a good book without all the clich├ęs that some authors fall into , like sex violence and gory violence. Please take a chance on IMPETUS I am so glad I did.
