School's Out

(Book #3 in the The Afterblight Chronicles Series)

After the world died we all sort of drifted back to school. After all, where else was there for us to go?

It's never easy being fifteen, but when your teachers are killing each other, the prefect who loves to bully you is experimenting with crucifixion, and the rival gang from across town have decided that ritualistic cannibalism is the way to go, spots and BO don't seem like such big problems after all.

These are the final days...

Bless the beasts and children...

While the first installments (from Si Spurrier and Rebecca Levene) in the Afterblight Chronicles are more epic in nature, Scott Andrews' book - School's Out - is much more personal. Instead of exploring how the virus has wiped out 98% of the world, he looks at the repercussions from the point of view of Lee Keegan, a survivor & a schoolboy. I've got a soft-spot for Toy Soldiers-style storylines, and this is no exception. I think every adolescent and teen has escapist fantasies on 'what would they do if it all fell apart?' (save the cheerleaders, punch out the bullies). School's Out reads like one of those. But as far as escapism goes, I should hope that most kids don't have an imagination this wild or morbid. Lee's world is an awful one: cannibals, cultists, and psychopaths of all ages abound. Even our hero isn't all 'there', and has to resort to some fairly grim behaviour in order to survive. This is a terrific installment in the Afterblight series. It doesn't further the 'metaplot' any, but it does show how the changes in this horrible, post-apocalyptic world impact everyone - no matter how small. I highly recommend it. Scott Andrews has done an excellent job thinking through his plot, adding fantastic twists and telling the whole story through the eyes of an enjoyable and (oddly) empathetic protagonist. It may be gory teen escapism, but that doesn't make it any less fun...

A post-apocalyptic Lord Of The Flies

I really enjoyed this book a whole hell of alot.It's the best of the series that I've read so far.Theses books are a quick entertaining read for me.I like how the author faced up to human reality before writing it.Because the reality is;it's the end of the world as we know it-well the you can just forget all that one for all and all for one balony-it's we've got ours and there's none for you!The protaganist in this story was awesome. The author captured that age perfectly.A great book,to be highly reccomended!

Enjoyed it!

This book is different from the first two books in the series, but I thought it was good in a different way! All of the books in this series are written from the perspective of people who survived a plague that wiped out most of humanity. This book takes place in England and follows a group of children who survived the plague. They live at their old boarding school. One of my favorite of the series so far.
