    Kindle One MOBI ¸ ´ cloudunblock.co One MOBIThe superb movie style cover of this book tells you all you need to know about the plot going in a man walks to London through a devastated Britain However it does mislead in one way despite the tagline This is you This is now And your number is up the book isn't written in the second person That was a reliefIn the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction Peter Nicholls noted in the entry Holocaust and After that Many of the authors cited have not been closely associated with Genre SF The post holocaust theme particularly in the UK has had a strong attraction for mainstream writers And in that vein although One bears a rese

    Kindle One MOBI ¸ ´ cloudunblock.co One MOBII'm not sure what to make of thisIt's gritty unforgiving and brutal What a nightmareBut it isn't complete I don't think I understand that our 'hero' doesn't know what happened to cause the apocalypse therefore we the reader don't know either but there's to it than that We find out who the biggest threats are and we're told how they came into being and what they're about We're told what a struggle it is for humans to function and what makes things difficult to survive We're even told how the rats have somehow thrived and taken on a new mantle of bold and fearless hive mentality But there is a bit of cloak and dagger going on with the mysterious people with white scarfs and tattoo's and six fingers that seem to be lurking in the background Who are they? Where did they come from? Are they good or bad? Why? What is their story? Should I pay the

    Kindle One MOBI ¸ ´ cloudunblock.co One MOBIThis is you This is now And your number is upFor reasons that are too complicated to touch upon here I have long been a fan of apocalyptic and post apocalyptic fiction Novels about the end of the world have always sparked my imagination and over the years I have read a fair number Some like Swan Song by Robert McCammon and Blood Crazy Simon Clark I keep going back to again and again I always look forward to reading a new example of the genre and so was happy when I finally managed to pick up a copy of One by Conrad WilliamsThe novel follows deep sea diver Richard Jane in the immediate aftermath of an extinction level event as he tries to travel from the north of Scotland to London in order to find his son Stanley The country's infrastructure has been swept away in an instant and rather than hours it takes him we

    Kindle One MOBI ¸ ´ cloudunblock.co One MOBIThis is a somewhat edited version of an e mail I sent a few friends after first reading it vThis one’s a postapocalyptic SFF novel about a deep sea diver in the North Sea present day who's fixing the leg of an oil rig feels a tremor and comes up to find the world all scorched and pretty much everything dead in grisly fashion He then sets off to make his way down the length of the UK hoping to find his son alive in London against all oddsThere are of course a lot of echoes of previous works here The list of postapocalyptic stuff is too long to mention What attracted me to this book is that we're right there when the cataclysm happens not starting in the aftermath as with say The Road or False Dawn or I Am Legend or Mad Max or Fallout and it jumps right into things rather than having a lot of setup like I dunno Alas Babylon I think i

    Kindle One MOBI ¸ ´ cloudunblock.co One MOBIConrad Williams is a good writer; that said I thought the development of the book was disappointing There are two distinct stories here The first half of the book has a theme of world catastrophe which was very well done The second half is a scifihorror book that becomes increasingly morbid dark and with unclear focus Overall the characters were not well developed and there was e

    Kindle One MOBI ¸ ´ cloudunblock.co One MOBIOne by Conrad Williams is about one mans journey to find his son following an apocalyptic event The United Kingdom is a scorched and desolate place covered with a glittering dust rubble and corpsesThe book is broken into two parts and the opening first few chapters are just pure brilliance The pace was fast and the characters vivid It wet my appetite for what was going to be something special or so I thoughtAfter the first few intense and profound chapters the pace slowed to a virtual stop The main protagonist Richard Jane realising that an extinction level event had taken place begins his journey to London on foot to find his son The journey to London is at least two thirds of the book and goes on for far too long It is this section of the book that for me didn't really work I found it difficult to connect with Jane and although this book is written in the third person narra
