A darkly hilarious look into the apocalypse… and us.
Bill is a just above average guy in a sea of the way above average people of Orange County, California. He's struggled his whole life to be somebody and he's done nothing but fall short. Stuck above the middle, but below the top, the fight for self-worth and approval has left him broken, tired, and painfully bored. His life is meaningless. That is, until a series of man-made, and nature induced calamities brings the apocalypse right to Bill's doorstep. Now he is a lone gunman in a world absent of rules or morals, without the shackles of comparison, or the weight of anxiety. It's kill or be killed. Life is finally simple, and Bill, is finally happy. That is, until Bill becomes the reluctant leader of a band of misfit survivors who are putting a damper on his newfound coolness. With any luck they'll make it to his mom's in NorCal without getting shot.
This was a great read. I loved the style and the pace. I don’t buy many books, but I got the second in this series just to reward the great writing.
I have read many apocalyptic books and this is by far the best! Hope to read more from you👍
