I just finished a book that I found to be profoundly disturbing.
I read a lot of apocalyptic literature, real end of the world type stuff and this book sounded like others I had read. Chaos, people running amok, blah, blah, blah... But it wasn't WHAT I was reading that made this book disturbing it was how I was FEELING.
David Moody has done a masterful job of projecting emotions in Hater. I felt the mundaneness and boredom of the main character. I experienced the confusion, panic, and then chaos as the story unfolded. Most of all there was the hatred.
It's a good book. It's a quick read. And, if you like it, you'll be pleased to know that it is also a trilogy. The second installment is called Dog Blood and is available now at EVPL. The last in the trilogy will be called Killer or Victim but the release date isn't set as of yet.

If you like apocalyptic fiction like I do try these other great reads.
don't let the Young Adult label scare you off!
