From Caroline Angel, author of Madman Across the Water and Origin of Evil, comes the dystopian horror novel Less.
When Sam and the staff of the Blue Dawn Diner arrive at work one morning, it only takes a moment to see that something is very wrong. The streets of the usually bustling town are eerily quiet - even the birds are silent. Sam and his friends soon discover that the world has changed beyond all comprehension, throwing them into a battle for survival as they try to create a new life and a new community. Coming up against other survivors and horrifying creatures, the group are forced to adapt quickly. Will the group survive long enough to find answers? Will they do what is needed to protect their community? Will humanity thrive again, even when there are Less?

OMG! Please tell me there will be a sequel!!!! I don't read too many 'end of the world' books. I used to, but felt like they all started to be the same story over and over. This story was a refreshing change from what I've been reading. (Actually, I listened to it..)
It starts before the end of the world so we get a chance to get to know some of the characters pre-apocalypse. Then people vanish, with a few left behind. It was neat how they scoured TV channels looking for answers and what was happening.
There was a Dawn of the Dead vibe with the group taking shelter at a mall, but that makes sense. A mall is perfect, especially if it has a hotel.
The characters were great, the bad guys (Flippers) were hearty opponents. I also loved how pets came into play in the book. I'm a sucker f
Has an agenda, waste of time.
The political agenda builds slowly till the end. The story isn’t about an actually apocalypse but an agenda. Wish I hadn’t continue listening when I saw the way it was heading. The basic story isn’t worth the agenda it’s pushing.
