Book Review: Summer of 68 by Kevin Millikin

My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist to a good novel. In 2015 I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. I live with my boyfriend, two cockatiels, five lovebirds, and two Gouldian finches in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.

Two brothers struggle to make sense of this new world, traveling through the putrid remains of their beloved town--torn between survival and the love their mother. The world has ended and soon they will learn that all they need to survive is each other.

The dead are rising everywhere and nobody knows why. This is the story of how this event affects the people of a small town. The main characters are the Sheriff and two little kids.

This was a fast paced action book. There is a little exposition at the beginning about how events started to happen and then we are immediately thrown into the middle of the action. The characters are not especially developed, but I don’t find that strictly necessary for this kind of book. The audiobook is just over six hours long, so there is not a lot of time to get into details.

My favorite part is the one about the two
