The Great Big One by J.C. Geiger


DNF @ p.130

I really struggled with this one. It's not a bad book, the writing style just really didn't resonate with me and I didn't particularly like or relate to any of the characters. The premise is an interesting one. It's about two brothers, Griff and Leo, who live on a coastal town that's constantly wondering when the next big tsunami will happen. They're preppers who are interested in classic rock and roll, but their relationship strains with the arrival of a new girl, Charity, who can sing like an angel. She's also a manic pixie dreamgirl, acting as a sort of muse for both of them. This reminds me of some of those cheesy adventure movies from the 90s/the teen Judd Apatow-esque movies from the mid-2000s. I think it requires too much suspension of disbelief for me, but if you're into zaniness, you'll probably like this.

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!
