I find it pretty boring There are absolutely no surprises or moments of terror I haven't connected with a single character nor felt sorry for people suffering The dialogues are dumb as heck What was the most interesting part are the technical specifications of power plants whether they were true or notI got this book through a radio contest so at least I haven't paid for it but before the contest I had a chance to listen to the interview with Marc Elsberg and it was so interesting I got curious of his book How come an interview is interesting than a book itself? Why do one need almost 800 pages to tell such a dull story?I do NOT recommend it with all my heart or at least I do not recommend reading it in Polish because I strongly suspect the translation ruined anything good that was in this book

One night the lights go out across Europe The electrical grids collapse on an epic scale and unleash a devastating chaos in the total blackout And unbeknownst to the general population nuclear reactor This is a thought provoking debut thriller which bleakly and realistically depicts the meltdown of the world as we know it when a hacker attack instigates a power blackout in Europe On a cold dark winter's night in Milan Pietro Manzano is thrown out of his car as traffic lights no longer work and the electricity grid collapses A former hacker Manzano joins the efforts of those entrusted to restore power and tries to chase down who is behind it To his dismay his past has turned him into a prime suspect which forces him to go on the run with the Paris based American journalist Shannon in a desperate race to get the power switched back on and prevent a global catastropheInitially people respond positively and well to the situation but it does not take long before all this changes It is a real eye opener to read just how much of modern society's infrastructure is completely reliant on power The seeds of unrest are sown as people become cold and hungry and tragedies become inevitable Nuclear power stations begin to pose dangers amidst other grave concerns The story shifts from country to country including Germany France UK Netherlands and Austria Manzano and Shannon solidify as their relationship begins to develop They become closer and united at the beginning things were fraught between them There is real tension and suspense as they frantically try to ensure power returns as escalating horrors take place as politicians prove to be ineffectual in their responses and corporations become self servingThis is a fast paced read that forensically examines and homes in on our reliance of power as the darkness begins to take hold It does not seem that far fetched in its detailed descriptions of daily miseries that people have to face The best part of the book is how it captures the unravelling of a contemporary society facing a tidal wave of incidents and tragedies accumulating The story outlines just how vulnerable the world is with regard to its dependence on power it's enough to make anyone paranoid Some of the characters are a little too distant and emotionally closed for me but I liked the central characters of Pietro and Shannon An apocalyptic read that is sure to make people think Thanks to Random House Transworld for an ARC
