For those who enjoy a good apocalypse, this book, while not well written, is an enjoyable read. Almost everyone in the world is wiped out in a few weeks by a super sars virus. The survival of the remaining folk - all part of the same family - relies on widening the gene pool as much as possible. This story tells of the journey across the world of a father and son who arrive at their families English home to find the remaining members held in total submission by an autocratic and violent elder. While this story is enjoyable there are many faults, the chief of which seems to me to be that only one of the women are able to think for themselves without dire consequences. ( )

Book description
When a pandemic strikes, members of the Chatfield family possess a crucial advantage. Guessing that their relatives on the other side of the world might also have escaped the devastating virus, and knowing that for their ultimate survival they must increase their gene pool, two members of the family's New Zealand branch embark on a perilous journey in a small yacht. The community they find on the other side of the world is a very different one, based on the rule of fear. Not only does it look impossible to take anyone back to New Zealand, but it may also be impossible for them to escape themselves.
