Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Wednesday, May 25, 2022
I got this softcover at a local Savers thrift shop, for another release copy.

I was thoroughly engrossed by this book, which segued beautifully from typical-teenager's-daily-life to the End of the World As We Know It. It made me feel as if I'd been through the events with the family - not least because a nasty regional ice storm a few years back gave me and many others in my area a big dose of what it's like to try and survive an icy, snowy winter without power!

The situation here is much more grave, of course, with the increasing isolation and the growing dread, the battles with despair - all too believable. I liked the characters, even when they were stressed to the point of being unpleasant. And if I had some doubts as to whether the moon's orbit could be shifted in quite that way - or if it would have the side effects described in the book - there are plenty of other ways in which such climate changes could be triggered, so the details of the cause aren't that important. [I did love the chilling image of the moon suddenly looming...]

[The TV Tropes page for the series has some entertaining info on the books, but do beware of spoilers if you haven't read them all yet.]
