Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton

Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton

If I remember correctly, I came to this book because it was advertised somewhere as a worthy contender to Emily St. Mandel’s Station Eleven(a.k.a. one of the most incredible novels ever written.), so the expectations were never a fair shake to this book. I found the writing to be fairly straightforward, without much lyricism, and the whole endeavor of reading it was a little bit frustrating. Any reader who is paying attention knows where the story is going, but it takes until the last third of the book to get there, with no payoff. If you’re looking for good post-apocalyptic literature, I can name five off the top of my head that I’d recommend over this one.
