Wake - An End Times Novel

It’s 2020, and there’s an environmental crisis brewing in the depths of the Greenland ice sheet that’s a threat to everyone on the planet. But California girl Camilla Brightly is an expat just trying to make a buck, working for a PR firm that specializes in raising public awareness about their clients’ products, even ones like eco-friendly bouncy castles and almost-vegan honey. Their most recent project? Everyone on staff has to get their “domestic helpmates”—anything from dishwashers to disco balls—networked via a new client’s “smart” home automation system. Camille doesn’t want Big Brother knowing that the only thing in her freezer is the makings for a vodka smoothie, but that’s not the worst of her problems.

A hacker intent on taking down one of her firm’s customers stumbles across a secret Camilla didn’t even know she was keeping, and her refrigerator turns out to be so smart it’s figured out how to stalk her. Global warming has reached a tipping point—and so has Camilla. She can’t stop the impending apocalypse but can she save herself?

With the help of an adorably nerdy co-worker and his polyamorous cousin, Camilla has to try to untangle herself from her less-than-harmonious home, foil a blackmailer, and face down an ecological disaster that might change life as she knows it forever. “Wake”—the prequel to “An Etiquette Guide to the End Times”—is a novel of climate change, unruly appliances, and finding a place to belong.

I waited so long and then BANG - migraine episode for several days! I've downloaded the new book and I'm looking forward to reading it tonight. So...thank you in advance x

Ugh, I hate it when that happens. Feel better!

Gosh, I should have finished reading a long time ago. How dare I delay after I pestered you about the release date! Anywho, things never go to plan but I'm getting there.
I've noticed there's a wee bit of swearing, not that that's a bad thing - just surprising. There's a lot of quirky irony too, almost a 'Simpsons' style of humour. There's a lot of drinking alcohol - you're leading me astray! But what has really stood out so far is the TIGER BALM. Oh how I despise that stuff. I recall many years ago letting rip on my poor mother, insisting she applied it only when I wasn't around. She used it to ease her headaches whist it only induced one for me. That was a dark day. Evil Tiger Balm.

And at last I've finished. Am I morty-fied? Do I feel fine now it's the end of the world as I know it? Well, I think I've experienced an almighty grey cell cinematic bad-ass of a surreal fantasy. It's well researched with blinged-up humour to soften the jargon. All that remains is finding a spud...
