SHOCK…First, the electricity goes—plunging the east coast in darkness after a devastating nuclear attack. Millions panic. Millions die. They are the lucky ones. AFTER SHOCK…Next, the chemical weapons take effect—killing or contaminating everything alive. Except a handful of survivors in a bomb shelter. They are the damned. HELL IS FOR HUMANSThen, the real nightmare begins. Hordes of rats force two terrified families out of their shelter—and into the savage streets of an apocalytic wasteland. They are not alone. Vicious, chemical-crazed animals hunt in packs. Dogs tear flesh, cats draw blood, horses crush bone. Roaming gangs of the sick and dying are barely recognizable as human. These are the times that try men’s souls. These are the tortures that tear families apart. This is hell on earth. The rules are simple: Kill or die.
I received this book via NG in return for an honest review.
I was expecting more from this book honestly. The blurb really drew me in and I couldn't wait to read it. It started out promising, then the more I read, the more I just wanted to put it down and label it "DNF".
I must say, this was very original IMO and sounds like some stuff Stephen King would write. I think close to the end was just a bit way to much for me though. With the pedophile and gang trying to constantly rape the girls... It made me sick to my stomach to the point, I had to put the book down for a while because I thought I would throw up.
While the characters and story line was really interesting and nothing like I'd ever read before, this just wasn't my thing.
