Synopsis: “They’re listening.”

Those are the irreversible words that tear Charlie Taylor’s world apart.

Struggling through everyday life in London, Charlie loses his job, his friends, and more than he could ever imagine. The only thing that keeps him from spiralling completely is his inexplicable infatuation with the barmaid.

While Charlie fights tooth and nail to survive, so does the world around him. Humanity deteriorates at a rapid rate, with criminal acts rising worldwide. The police find themselves stretched, the government clueless, but Charlie’s eyes are open.

Carrying the burden on his shoulders, not only must Charlie fight his own personal demons, but now he must also find the strength to stop everyone from theirs.

Review: I had to DNF this book at 30% through. The book seems to be really good and I want to try it again in the future, but the book is really slow and I don’t know if I’ll have the adequate time to devote to this book for review purposes right now. The book also wasn’t developing the characters as well as I would have liked and I had a general sense of confusion while reading the book.

Verdict: it seems good, but not for me right now.
