    Very bleak!

    The stories were very short some were finished well but most were left hanging without a finished ending. They also brought a very unsettling feeling of depression. Would only recommend to people who are into the end of the world!

    If you are a fab of the sub-genre of Sci-fi known as “Apocalyptic”, you will like this book. Some stories are better than others but overall a good read. Nicely gruesome in some ways and downright scary in others.

    Bujiboy ,


    Virtually nothing actually happens in these stories. People just think and talk and ruminate. I kept flipping through hoping to find some excitement. Nothing. I can’t recommend.
