Review: The Road to Nowhere by Lee Argus


Picture
A man awakes from a coma in an abandoned hospital. His amnesia leaves him full of unanswered questions. As he tries to piece together his lost past, a few dim memories resurface, leaving him with more questions than answers.

After leaving the hospital, the journey begins in the city of Las Vegas, where humans seem to be missing. The roads are left impassible; abandoned cars have been left in place. Buildings and homes look as though they had been hastily fled from, although in some... a deadly secret awaits.

Our hero, choosing the name "John", teams up with some unlikely allies as he tries to navigate this "new world".

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

The story moves quickly, the scenarios seemingly realistic (if you can consider a zombie like Apocalypse real). Each of the characters are unique and interesting, each bringing their own skills, life story and expectations with them. It is hard not to identify with these characters  to begin to feel emotion for them. Will they make it?

Throughout the book, good ideas and strategies are employed, and new characters are brought in throughout, keeping the overall story fresh and interesting. From the main characters, to the minor ones, you want to see everyone survive this "outbreak".

I cannot wait for book two to be released so I can continue on this journey with these characters and see where they end up in this new world.
