About the Book
What would you do if every spark of electricity suddenly vanished, as if somebody had flipped a switch on the entire planet? Cars won't start, the heat shuts off, there's no water in your faucet, and your radio, TV, and flashlight go dark. Everyone in Charlie's small town is baffled.

But as time passes, lawlessness erupts and takes an ugly turn. When the market and pharmacy are torched by an anti-Semitic arsonist, Charlie realizes his mother will die without her medicine. So he dons skis and heads off alone, seeking the nearest hospital. After traveling 50 miles through brutal ice and snow, Charlie encounters a burned-out, looted city of terrified citizens. Will he be able to save his mom?

Heroic, eloquent, and unforgettable, The Big Dark raises timely questions about responsibility, tolerance, and love.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that really grabbed your attention from the very beginning. The book was filled with great action as well as characters that truly draw you in. While some of the action portrays some vigilantism, you also see kindness as well. This sense of multiple perspectives was nice to see as well. All-in-all, the writing style, look, feel and overall tone of this story made it a compelling one that made you really want to read more and more!
