Book Review: All That Remains by Al Barrera

Netgalley Review.png

Good Morning!

I was granted a copy of All That Remains from Netgalley and due to oher commitments it took a while to get it read.

What is it about?

The old world is dead, and humanity struggles to survive in the shadows of the new one. Kyle, Sara, and Tim are scavengers, hiding in the remains of human civilization from the hungry things that destroyed it. Living on the few items that haven’t rotted in the thirteen years since civilization was wiped out.

But something has shown itself: A terrible creature that betrays an intelligence in the madness of the creatures that rule the planet.

When the group finds Kaylee, a little girl who claims to know of a safe haven somewhere in Tennessee, they embark on a desperate journey to find it. Memory and loss, depravity and salvation— their last run will put them face to face with horrors of both man and monsters the likes of which they’ve never seen.

What did I think?

I have read a fair few dysotopian books in my time and this one was as just as good as the others.

The environment was gritty and everything you would imagine it to be in a situation like this. The world in where not only do you fear the creatures of the unknown but other humans.

I really like the characters in the book, all completely different. However, Sara has a gift. This gift brings on an added dimension to the story, it’s soemthing that is different and adds so much more to the depth of plot.

The book is very easy to read and very well written. One refreshing detail is that it doesn’t necessarily have the super squishy happy ending that most books have. I was wholly impressed by this book and would highly recommend it. I would rate All That Remains 5 out of 5 stars.

Thank you for reading.
