Phoenix Island by Charlotte Paul


Expectation: Love Island meets Lord of the Flies

Reality: Some bullshit.

I read the first twenty pages and then skimmed to the first sex scene and was not impressed. This came in a box of pulp I thrifted and while some pulps don't deserve to be lost to time, this one isn't one I'm going to be raving about. Points to the author for being ahead of her time and having climate change via tsunamis and flooding be the agent for the end of the world at a time when everyone was clutching their pearls about nuclear power.

1 out of 5 stars
