Summary

When the flood hits, America's East Coast is evacuated by every means possible. Trains, buses, and an unending line of cars head inland. All manner of boats and ships aid in rescues along the docks of New York.

Brooklyn paramedic Travis Cooke had dreamed of reuniting his family, but not like this. Escaping New York with his son and the ex-wife he still loves - and her new husband - they find themselves evacuated on the luxury cruise ship, the Festival of the Waves.

Hours later, the Festival lies dead in the open Atlantic: no power, no communications, and nowhere near enough food. Thousands of evacuees on board find themselves alone in a big ocean. For those that escaped the flood, the nightmare is just beginning.

Good read.

found disappointment in the end that they never got anywhere or did anything. if this was a film it would be a cheap made one as it was all based in one venue. dragged at times ajd became monotonous. locked action for me as I like akot of action. But didn't regret buying. just wouldn't put on my must read again list or rec to a friend. idea was great just wished it had gone somewhere. disappointed at the end.

Great story

New author to me. Exciting story, well narrated, good characters, but pity about the end.

Good listen

This is a new author and narrator to me and overall I enjoyed it. There were elements that I thought dragged a little but overall good listen. The premise was interesting, one that I hadn't listened to before and it worked well - great explorations of themes and how people cope etc. I did get confused at the beginning with all the characters but it all worked in the end

Another great find on the audible plus catalogue.

Tedious and unbearably grim

Bloated with attempts at philosophical musings and excessive detail, including details of character back stories which don’t add to the narrative
