Are you prepared for emergencies? How would you and your family survive if the world as we know it suddenly changed? This is the situation that Doug and his family were thrust into with no warning. Doug and his daughter landed at the airport and suddenly the world went dark; the electricity was out, cars stalled on the interstates, generators quit working, watches stopped and the world quickly went into panic mode.
Last Light is a story from Terri Blackstock that asks some tough questions and makes the reader think about how you would react to a world without any of the things we take for granted.
Last Light Book Review
Last Light is not a typical disaster book where the characters are working to save the world or fix the problem. Instead, the characters in this novel spend many of the pages in the book trying to figure out how they are going to respond to the situations in their neighborhood.
A murderer on the loose, robbery, teenage rebellion, hoarding , fights between friends…. Life without electricity or any of the comforts of civilization takes a toll on the lives of the characters in this book.
There is a strong Christian message in this book that helps determine the choices of each of the characters. Last Light definitely makes you think about how you would respond if the world suddenly changed.
About the Book
After an unexplained catastrophic event in the atmosphere knocks out all electronics in the world, these well-to-do families who’ve accumulated so many things are suddenly left helpless. Their Mercedes and BMWs sit in their driveways, useless. Their expensive, well-appointed homes have no electricity, no refrigeration, no phones. Even their battery-operated electronics don’t work. No one is certain whether the country is under attack. Without communication, there is no way to find out. One family of Christians–the Brannings–realizes the needs of those around them.
