Free: (Nook) Soft Apocalypse

Soft Apocalypse by Will McIntosh is free at Barnes & Noble

Quote:
Publishers Weekly

In this moving debut from Hugo-winner McIntosh, the prosperous world of 2023 ends not with a bang but with a crackle, the sound of genetically engineered bamboo growing overnight and destroying roads and buildings. Naïve college graduate Jasper struggles to trade charged batteries for food as his "tribe" wanders the Georgia countryside, dodging local cops and designer diseases. Settling in Savannah, they try to find some stability in a crumbling city beset by anarchist gangs and the "scientist-rebels" who release tailored organisms to hasten societal collapse. In the end, each member of the tribe must decide what to give up in order to survive. The novel, expanded from a short story, shows some unevenness in tone, but McIntosh strongly delineates his characters and makes Jasper's struggles very affecting. Though it may be soft, this apocalypse has plenty of sharp edges. (Apr.)

Thanks. It is still free on Nook. I got the first two chapters free directly from Nightshade. I was curious to finish the book, but the writing wasn't that great, so I didn't want to pay a lot. Amazon has it for $7.99. So, I got it from B&N, and converted it for my kindle.
