Last Light is told through multiple perspectives, and this sccarrow where it lost me a little.

Call me optimistic if you like but I found it a bit strange that the first true act of kindness happens a third of the way through the sequel, Afterlight. Whilst the storyline of Andy in Iraq is vital to the story, it wasn’t the part that I was particularly invested in – I liked the focus on the collapse of the British economy and infrastructure far more, and particularly the perspectives of Andy’s wife, Jenny and daughter Leona as they witnessed the spiralling events first hand.

The fact that Andy may be the unwitting architect of the downfall, having written a report summing up the bottlenecks that can be used to cut off the world’s oil, and an assassin sent to silence Leona, who accidentally saw some people who turn out to be members of a shadowy organisation called the Twelve.
I don’t know what to make of that. I live a nomadic existence with my wife Frances, and son Jacob. A very sobering but and this is hard to do completely entertaining book that paints a very possible picture of the complete societal breakdown that would occur if oil production was suddenly and permanently disrupted across the globe. The assassin who is seriously wounded and has only the use of one arm, still managing to kill three trained agents with only a knife!
Not sure if it could ever happen but it’s a scarey thought.
