The other day I received from Matt a box of clothing and reading material that he sent from Afghanistan as his date of return to the World nears. Among the books was Collision Course by David Crawford. As you know, I always have need of diversionary reading for my chronic insomnia, so I picked this one up one night and found I couldn't put it down until I finally fell asleep. The next night I finished it, and I must say that as end-of-the-world novels go, I was interested in the character development and twists of plot that Crawford constructed from what could have been a garden-variety tale (as so many TEOTWAWKI novels often are).
I will not spoil the story for you, but it revolves around two characters, one initially wholly unsympathetic and the other the nominal protagonist. You may surmise correctly from the title that these two characters are destined to meet, and yet by the time they do, nothing is as it had seemed in the beginning.
A good read.
