Edit: Some other reviewers say they are only getting one book in this deal - they are just totally wrong! It is three short books merged without cover shots or titles into one book, no gaps. Check the page count for the individual books - 78 pages, 93 pages and 91 pages, and then for the box set - 257 pages.
Dusty has been hiding in a survival bunker to avoid the infected and decides to surface after two years. He's well equipped, but has an attitude problem with those who caused the disease that is destroying the world. At times his rants are clearly not for the politically correct crowd. But there are some moments when he clearly hits the truth about the world. About how depending on where you get your news and opinions from leads you to believe in one bunch of politicians and hate another group and their supporters. Except the other group have the same problem with their own biased news sources.
How he survives without being an amazing clever guy is pretty convincing, how he uses what he does know it get an edge on the dangerous shroom-heads - the infected mad people - is also a bit convincing.
Then he realises there is another survivor, the mysterious M, whom he eventually meets up with. And gets a bit of a surprise as well. ;)
They team up and M persuades him to come and meet Auntie Millie, based on a picture of Auntie posing in the nude for playboy! Their trip is a bit of an adventure, and M has clearly calmed down Dusty's ranting a lot. Their road trip ends with another surprise too, leaving Dusty a bit confused, then he has an idea - which becomes book four ( which I have just bought and started reading. And for the doubters who think they are missing book two and three from the box set, book four continues on from the last sentence of the box set.)
The individual books are short and I found I was reading them fast to get to the next stage. Once you start ignoring Dusty's non-PC language, it's a fun fast read.
As a prequel to the Last Survivors, it covers the very start of the problems that lead to that series 300 years later, but it is Dusty's story really. One man versus the world. He's an ordinary man, not some super-soldier or scientist. Its fun. Enjoyable.
Now I am going to start on book 4.
I wonder if there will be a short series set, say, 30 - 60 years later, making the situation in The Last Survivors easier to understand.
I read, and enjoyed, The Last Survivors series and I am hooked on this authors engaging style. I have already purchased Slow Burn.
I hope Dusty has a future. It is, I guess, up to Mr Adair to give poor Dusty some more life, in which he might get to realise that dream, envisioned by an image on a playing card but dashed by the reality of meeting the lady.
God, we have all been there, right? Oh maybe its just me and Dusty!!!
Dusty - the writer of the diary - has an honest and realistic point of view regarding the whys and wherefores of how the world collapsed. It's set in Texas, it's filled with monsters - who, apart from him is left 'normal'? Will loneliness be his downfall?
I really enjoyed this entertaining, funny tale and yet it did have deeper, ugly truths. I loved Dusty's 'voice'.
Excellent and highly recommended.
