About twenty minutes in to this book I almost turned it off. The narrator’s cadence was monotonous to say the least. but I stuck with it, mainly because I’m I sucker for a good Armageddon tale. I am glad I did.

it maps out an interesting theory of how mass extinctions have occurred. its not all together plausible, but it does make you think.

the side stories of the main characters family are interesting enough, but not really important. but, let’s be honest, one doesn’t but a book like this expecting greatness. one gets into this book for the monster. this was a good monster.
