Publisher Description: Welcome to the Apocalypse. Your forecast includes acid rain, roving gangs and misplaced priorities, in this comedic take on the end of the world as we know it, from debut author Daphne Lamb.
Review: This was a hilarious run of modern comedic satirical commentary. Sarcastically inventive, with an ongoing diatribe that pokes fun at the egocentric as is common to our era. Written from the viewpoint of a mildly disgruntled office worker that manages to avoid a viral plague and perhaps an atomic bomb. Verdell moves from one calamity to the next with false accusations and myopic narcissists following her everywhere. The post-apocalyptic cults run the gamut from cannibalism to the Soldiers of Anthrax and perhaps a cat urine drinking cult of Libertarians.
The movement and character development were as good as it gets with satirical writing. Scene development lacked in some areas where you were sometimes left filling in the descriptive gaps. The story line was inventive, creative and a lot of fun. I hope this story continues as was hinted at.
