Autumn delves into the darkness of the apocalypse. David Moody has a knack for looking at the end of the world through the eyes of the average person. There are no superheroes, just people like you and me trying to survive.
In Autumn, almost everyone dies in one fell swoop. The few survivors are terrified, they don’t know what to do or why it happened. The main focus is on a handful of survivors, Michael, Emma and Carl; what they do, how they react and handle the end of the world.
David Moody has created a great group of characters. He has built them up as people that the reader can relate to; we could be one of them. The reader can feel the pain of their loss and the frustration that each of them feels by just trying to survive. When I care this much about the characters, the author has done his job.
Autumn is the first of five books. I first read his Hater Series over a year ago. Reading Autumn now, I had to ask myself why I waited so long to get this book. This is one of those books that leaves you with the nagging question, “Could I have done anything different? If the shit hit the fan, could I survive?”
