Free read Dahlia Black

For fans of World War Z and the Southern Reach Trilogy a suspenseful oral history commemorating the five year anniversary of the Pulse the alien code that hacked the DNA of Earth’s population and the response team who faced the world changing phenomenon Voyager 1 was a message in a bottle Our way of letting the galaxy know we existed That we were out here if anyone wanted to find us Over the next forty years the probe flew past Jupiter and Saturn before it drifted into the void swallowed up by a silent universe Or so we thought Truth is our message didn’t go unheard Discovered by Dr Dahlia. You can read this review and on my blogWhat attracted me to this book is its comparison with World War Z the book not the awful movie I loved WWZ and its then new take on the zombie apocalypse I loved that the author chose to tell the story of what happened AFTER the end of the world as we know it That it was as much a tale of fighting the zombies as one of rebuilding a life in a new reality where they existed So another story about civilization coping with a world changing event and rebuilding after it I was all in Unfortunately the only way this book IS like WWZ is that it's a collection of fictional interviews and diary entries It is also very unimaginatively boring I kept hoping that there would be some emotional reward or grand revelation if only I kept reading but I turned the last page and the only thought in my head was why waste 288 pages on THATview spoilerThe whole story can be summed up in four steps 1 There is a mysterious Pulse from space that alters human DNA 2 About 30% of people are susceptible to the Pulse and change becoming the Elevated From those about 13 die during the transformation 3 The surviving Elevated disappear from our reality into a parallel dimension during the Finality 4 The other 70% of the world's population learn to keep on living hide spoiler

Black the mysterious Pulse was sent by a highly intelligent intergalactic species that called themselves the Ascendants It soon becomes clear this alien race isn’t just interested in communication they are capable of rewriting human DNA in an astonishing process they call the Elevation Five years after the Pulse acclaimed journalist Keith Thomas sets out to make sense of the event that altered the world Thomas travels across the country to interview members of the task force who grappled to decode the Pulse and later disseminated its exact nature to worried citizens He interviews the astron. I received this book as an eARC by the publishers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI loved World War Z so when I saw that this book was written in a similar interview based style I knew I had to read it Overall I really enjoyed this book It was incredibly factual and well thought out for a fictional event that changes human history It was incredibly interesting and the author definitely has a talent for making mind boggling concepts easier to understand for the average reader It was a bit dry due to the interviews mixed with lots of data but I found myself so wrapped up in the interviews and other entries that I really didn't mind Fantastic book for people that liked World War Z's fictional but realistic interviews or people that like reading about alien contact
