Once we had liberated a truck, it had still been slow going until we reached El Segundo Boulevard. The stalled traffic had been much lighter there, and we had been able to drive part of the way by cutting into the parking lots of fast food restaurants, that dotted almost the entire length of the highway. We had followed that to Willmington, and picked up another truck that had seen better days. Getting that truck had not been a problem; there were several used car lots along the road. We had used the parking lots to swing around the worst of the traffic, and that had worked well until we had intersected Compton Boulevard. It was hopelessly packed with stalled traffic. We had left the truck, which had sounded as if it was close to dying anyway, and struck out on foot again. Lana led the way as we cut cross lots through Compton Woodley Airport.
Crossing the dead airfield had been unnerving for both of us. The runways had cracked, and either lifted skyward, or tilted down into the ground. Blackened skeletons of large aircraft dotted the airfield. Most of them were so badly burned that we had been unable to tell what they had been before. I thought a couple of them may have been military aircraft, but as badly twisted as they were it was impossible to be sure.
Luggage, some burned, some untouched, was scattered across the airfield in every direction, and many of the suitcases were burst, with papers and clothing scattered everywhere along with other personal effects. There were bodies there too...
I loved the story.This would have been 5 stars had the author just not been in a rush ti lush it out. Editing left undone, lack of character development. When i read a book, i can usually picture the characters in my head, couldn’t do that. Lots of potential here though. I enjoyed it overall and i was having fun thinking about parts i would have prolonged or changed.
Well started to read this thing. Honestly it makes no sense. Jumps from one point to another. Than all of a sudden someone gets shot than there talking about "let the game begin". I haven't finish will try but the more I read the more IT MAKES NO SENSE.
