I am waiting on:
Title: The Islands at the End of the World
Author: Austin Aslan
Publisher: Wendy Lamb Books
Publication Date: August 5, 2014
In this fast-paced survival story set in Hawaii, electronics fail worldwide, the islands become completely isolated, and a strange starscape fills the sky. Leilani and her father embark on a nightmare odyssey from Oahu to their home on the Big Island. Leilani’s epilepsy holds a clue to the disaster, if only they can survive as the islands revert to earlier ways.
A powerful story enriched by fascinating elements of Hawaiian ecology, culture, and warfare, this captivating and dramatic debut from Austin Aslan is the first of two novels. The author has a master’s degree in tropical conservation biology from the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
Why am I waiting?
I always like the premise of the world taking a back step when all technology fails. Trying to survive without all the technology that we have all become accustom to would be life changing. I hope that this book does it justice, because it does sound really good.
What are you waiting on?
