CBR III Review #107: Dust by Jacqueline Druga
Joanna Collins is prepared. Prepared for the end times. She has also made sure that her family and friends know how to survive a nuclear attack if one is to occur. On one bright and sunny day the United States is attacked with nuclear weapons and World War III begins. Joanne keeps a diary of as she tries to find out what happened to her family and friends.
Dust is fairly short so I don’t want to spoil the details of the novel, but it was a quick fun (by fun I mean grim but awesome) apocalypse story. I personally feel like the death toll is a little skewed and the chances of her running into anyone she knew after the nuclear attack is incredibly unlikely, but it’s a novel and not a fact based account so I’ll let it slide. If you are sick and twisted like me and like to read apocalypse fiction then it’s worth it to pick it up, especially for the price tag of $3.99. But if it’s not your genre then I wouldn’t suggest picking it up.
