Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A story told in journalistic style as a series of interviews, blogs, recorded conversations and official reports. As a style that can be irritating but Lotz pulls it off extremely well and I found it truly engaging. It is basically an exploration of how fragile society is and how western culture of freedom and tolerance takes very little pressure to completely disintegrate. The individual voices of the different narrators are wonderfully varied; sometimes I could even hear the accents rising off the page. It is macabre and disturbing but, like a conspirator, the reader is drawn steadily deeper into the plot until the need to know what happens becomes overwhelming.

If you like Sarah Lotz you might also like to read books by Ken Macleod, Christopher Galt and Simon Lelic.

Synopsis

The Three by Sarah Lotz

They're here ...The boy. The boy watch the boy watch the dead people oh Lordy there's so many ...They're coming for me now. We're all going soon. All of us. Pastor Len warn them that the boy he's not to---- The last words of Pamela May Donald (1961 - 2012) Black Thursday. The day that will never be forgotten. The day that four passenger planes crash, at almost exactly the same moment, at four different points around the globe. There are only four survivors. Three are children, who emerge from the wreckage seemingly unhurt. But they are not unchanged. And the fourth is Pamela May Donald, who lives just long enough to record a voice message on her phone. A message that will change the world. The message is a warning.
