    You wouldn't want to be stranded at sea with this snooze fest Bleak bland and pointlessSo apparently the seafloor split and water from beneath the earth slowly rose up and over the next estimated 100 years covered the world in water But even that's wishy washy because even though they only lost communications – internet TV radio – thirteen years beforehand there is no concrete record of exactly what occurred and it's

A little than a century from now our world has been utterly transformed After years of slowly overtaking the continent rising floodwaters have obliterated America’s great coastal cities and then its heartland leaving nothing but an archipelago of mountaintop colonies surrounded by a deep expanse of open waterStubbornly independent Myra and her precocious seven year old daughter Pearl fish from their small boat the Bird visiting dry land only to trade for supplies and information in the few remaining outposts of civilization For sev.

Her fellow seekers who hope to build a safe haven together in this dangerous new world But secrets lust and betrayals threaten their dream and after their fortunes take a shocking and bloody turn Myra can no longer ignore the uestion of whether saving Row is worth endangering Pearl and her fellow travelersA compulsively readable novel of dark despair and soaring hope After the Flood is a magnificent action packed and sometimes frightening odyssey laced with wonder an affecting and wholly original saga both redemptive and astonishing. A promising premise that does not deliverFull disclosure I received a free e ARC for review through Edelweiss Trigger warning for rape kidnapping human trafficking suicide and drug use This is how the water takes usDNF at 76%Thirty something Myra lives in a future that could one day very well be our own Flooding fueled by climate change gradually claimed the coasts before she was born and when she just a young woman the Hundred Year flood reached her doorstep the plains of Nebraska sweeping her mother away in a tidal wave The family her migrant husband Jacob daughter Row and Grandfather retreated to the second floor of the house as Grandfather raced against time to build them a boat on which to navigate this terrifying new world But before he could finish Jacob fled with a neighbor taking Row with himand leaving a pregnant Myra behind It s been seven years since Row was kidnapped Without Grandfather and his boat Bird Myra would not have survived Grandfather is gone though having passed mercifully in his sleep and if she and her younger daughter are to survive Myra has reached the dispiriting conclusion that she must abandon her search for Row However a chance encounter with a raider suggests that Row may not only be alive but in imminent danger held captive on a colony in Greenland and at risk of being sent to a breeding ship it s exactly what it sounds like Bird is too small to make such as a treacherous passing but the Sedna which comes to their aid is just perfect Can Myra convince its inhabitants to make the journey Should she Is it okay to sacrifice their lives for that of their daughter To sacrifice Pearl for RowIf this sounds like Mad Max Fury Road but with too much water instead of not enough then you understand my initial excitement I devoured the first 25% or so of the book the early world building is promisingWe still called oceans by their former names but it was really one giant ocean now littered with pieces of land like crumbs fallen from the skyThe remnants of humanity either live in crowded slums wedged into the sides of what used to be mountain ranges but are now like islands the rest risk weather starvation dehydration and pirate raiders the descendants of private military outfits natch at sea Human trafficking is prevalent as is colonizing now with the biological warfareSadly After the Flood breaks down like this 40% pointless whining about ethical dilemmas Myra s gonna Myra am I right 30% boat talk 10% cringy sex scenes and maybe generously 20% intriguing world building and poetic prose about the natural world The characters are either unlikable or not fully fleshed out or both and when I say unlikable I don t mean in that love to hate em Gone Girl kind of way Unlikable characters can be super entertaining but this is not the case here Myra is unrelentingly irritating her internal conflicts are dull and repetitive and the umbrage she takes at discovering that other people also have their own sometimes hidden agendas would be laughable if it wasn t so annoyingly self absorbed and hypocritical Pot meet kettle She flies into a rage with Daniel even though her deceptions are arguably worse he s just floating along in the wake of destruction she s creating in her uest to rescue Row Daniel is wholly uninteresting and Pearl is of a brat than is reasonable in this world idk how she could act like that and survive for so long And for all her whining about how Myrna doesn t listen to herdidn t they just spend the better part of a decade trapped on a small boat together with only each other and for a brief period one other person for company Abran the captive of the Sedna is not believable as a leader at all He s a bossy short tempered alcoholic without the stones to make the hard decisions I can t see anyone following him from one Grateful Dead concert to the next let alone across the vast empty ocean Montag forces him into a love triangle with Daniel and Myrna and the whole thing is just yawnIt hurts to see what could have been an engaging and prescient story go down like this but it is what it is Honestly I m puzzled at all the glowing early reviews Were we reading the same book
