Autumn by David Moody

Name:Autumn

Author:David Moody

Publisher: Infected Books

Pages: 283

Part of a series? Y/N? There are three more - Autumn: The City, Autumn: Purification, Autumn: The Human Condition

My rating: OK

Synopsis: - From the inside flap -
'In less than twenty-four hours a vicious and virulent disease destroys virtually all of the population. Billions are killed. Thousands die every second.There are no symptoms and no warnings. Within moments of infection each victim suffers a violent and agonizing death. Only a handful of survivors remain. By the end of the first day those survivors wish they were dead.Then the disease strikes again, and all hell breaks loose... '


Why I would or would not recommend it:
A quick read ...an OK post-apocalyptic / speculative fiction novel
There are several books after this one, and I imagine you would probably have to read them all to get a decent story. This just seems like a pre-amble.
Not the greatest of books but I'll have to read the rest of the series now to see what happens, so there must be something I liked about it.

My # 21 for this challenge
