Broken Lines by James Hunt
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
If you like a book that bulldozes through brisk bursts of action, then this book has possible appeal. No dallying around character sketches, getting to know what makes them tick...Let's just get into and get on with the action...
The summer sun was brutal. Even the asphalt was sweating.
This is a hot world suddenly cut from the power of microchip energy.
All of the cars along the highway were completely still. Wrecks dotted the road for miles.
... and that brings out desperate needs for desperate measures.
Hasty snapshot descriptions of tense atmospheres tend to evolve into tangling mixed metaphors...
e.g. There was only the silent murmur of crowds piling into the streets looking confused in the motionless city...
But wise and brave (seems to be) man Mike has plans to get his family into their jeep and off to their holiday cabin in Ohio...
I was left breathless and hungry for a bit of depth...
