BBC Dickensian actor Martin Carroll expertly delivers this extremely interesting drama about two best friends and their families trying to survive the end of the world as we know it. Faced with an unparalleled threat, humanity must retreat underground, but is there any safe place, or the end is coming for everyone? In Something to Tell You, best-selling author David Edwards asks and answers some deeply philosophical questions using Science Fiction and pure science. With themes that can be relevant in our current Coronavirus crisis, he responds through his characters at such pressing questions as if the governments are lying to us - what can one man do to save his family and what is our role in the Universe. David Edwards seamlessly weaves fiction and science into a beautiful story, filled with well fleshed out characters and vivid descriptions. Something to Tell You isn't your regular end of the world scenario, but a deeply dramatic, emotional and relevant work of literature. Driven by a simmering plot and narrated in Martin Carroll's deep, serious voice, this book, its characters and the events therein will stay with you for a long time.

Topical as the end of the world like covid19
Not too science fiction more philosophical than that. I liked the speculative nature of how humankind might behave in a crisis and how the two families helped each other. The science of multi universes and the Higgs boson glue of the universe worked. So a great read.
