The Big Dark
The town of Harmony, NH, along with a large portion of the world are enjoying a fantastic natural light show on New Year's Eve when all of a sudden all the lights go out. Nothing electrical or battery operated works at all. How will the town survive in the middle of the winter - limited food, limited heating? To top it off there is a crazy family of conspiracy theorists who want to take control and Charlie's mom needs a medication to save her life.
I felt the Bragg family was really over the top - so many racist comments and the use of the word "retard" annoys me. But it was in the context of the book and just how awful he was. Liked the book for what it was...
