The Fly Flu has wiped out the world as we know it. Following a group of children as they navigate their way across the United States, we see that not only do they have to worry about the deadly flies and the disease they spread but the remaining humanity left in the dust. But one thing is for certain, although they feel alone in this large and dangerous world, the relationships they create with one another will last for a lifetime, however brief.
The Electric Kingdom is 421 pages long and took me four days to read.
I’m giving this book a 3.5 out of 5. There was a point that I thought about stopping because it felt so complex but the ending is absolutely worth it. It’s been hard to stop thinking about this book since I’ve finished it a week ago.
Thank you, Viking, for sending me this copy!
Here’s to the adventure of finding a novel novel!
