One of the worst books ever!

Blackout Blackout by Guy N Smith

My review

rating: 1 of 5 stars
In the name of ceiling-cat and Patsy Cline DO NOT read this book. Occasionally in the publishing world, a British book gets printed that is, well, completely off-base with US geography. Mr. Smith has Wyoming close to New York, for one thing. Oregon has a desert. I was hoping this was alternate reality. Sadly, it was not so.

And the inaccuracies and muck and mire continued and continued...I finally just gave up and skimmed to the end. The book is clearly in the horror genre and the only credit I can give to Mr. Smith is that it ended on the appropriately ambiguous note.

Just goes to prove: Only write about what you know!
