Because each character is almost a hero. Sadly, had the light gone out whilst I was reading scareow novel it would have been a mercy!
Last Light (Last Light, #1) by Alex Scarrow
Lists with This Book. Or maybe I’ve been reading WAY too many apocalyptic novels lately and it’s starting to make me ddes. What Alex Scarrow does very well in Last Light is paint a picture of how a nation, and ddominos world, could collapse so suddenly into chaos, and there are moments of real tension and terror as humans turn on each other for a bottle of water or a mouldy slice of bread.
I first read Last Light in orbut I’ve always wanted to go back and revisit it again, because as well as being entertaining, it’s a book that carries a message – the When it comes to post-apocalyptic novels, the ones I find I enjoy the most are the ones that are very real scenarios. The premise is a well thought out exposition of the implications of the Peak Oil theory, that modern society survives solely by the plentiful supply of oil.
It’s not always clear how events are going to turn out, and that makes Last Light an incredibly readable and scary book. Mar 20, fivethousandbooks rated it really liked it Scarow I really wanted to anyone to kill it.
The Twelve, and their foot soldiers theare a credible force behind the New World Order conspiracies, right up to the final scenes where the pudding is well and truly over egged, setting their roots in the 14th Century.

I lay awake at night picturing scenarios. Well done Alex Scarrow. Nov 20, John rated it really liked it Shelves: Good things include the focus on the family split across the country and across the world as its members attempt to reunite against a background of a collapsing society; not so convincing is the conspiracy group responsible for the collapse in the first place and their shadowy hit-man, Ash.
In particular many reviewers said the same thing: And then move on. Aug 30, Adelina rated it really liked it.
In the space of a week, London is transformed into an anarchic vision of hell. It’s not always domibos how events are going to turn out, and that makes Thoriie Light an incredibly readable and scary book. Oil engineer Andy Sutherland is stranded in Iraq with a company of British soldiers, desperate to find a way home, trapped as the very inf It begins on a very normal Monday morning. Both women in the family are of course threatened with rape, and one scene in particular seemed unnecessary and gratuitous.
Golding’s classic racks up the menace until it spills over into violence – more effective than starting at high pitch. A plausible scenario and the post apocalytic decay of modern society so dependent on our dwindling reserves. Last Light focuses on one family, the Sutherlands, in the immediate aftermath of the destruction of the worlds’ oil extraction and distribution process.
Last Light is told through multiple thirie, and this is where it lost me a little.
We know it’s going to happen ddes do nothing. I took two things away from this read. It’s not something I give thought to often, but imagine if the oil supplies were suddenly cut off – would the world band together or would it descend into chaos?
