Survivor Song by Paul Tremblay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Reading this book was a little bit like reading the headlines, but hopefully it wasn’t prophetic. It makes you realize that no matter the circumstances, people haven’t, and won’t, react any different.
While the premise is familiar, the writing makes this story unique. The characters make it real. The ending brings hope. Talks of viruses and vaccines make it horribly relevant and the descriptions and detail make this a horrific read from beginning to end. Horrific is a good thing.
“Beautiful” is word rarely used for this genre, but the sincerity and care Tremblay has for his characters is both touching and refreshing. Despite blood and gory scenes, humanity is not lost, it’s revered.
I tore through this novel like a rabid coyote, gripping my Kindle and clicking through the pages with virulent speed. This was the perfect summertime read to put into perspective and bring to light issues that we are facing at this very moment, with a welcome light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.
