    One thought on “Dust”

    1. Dust follows a group of people in the aftermath of a nuclear war. Jo has been preparing for this most of her life by stockpiling supplies into her basement and encouraging her friends to do the same. Still, she never actually expected it to happen. When the bombs hit, she takes her teenage son and her young nephew she is babysitting into the basement cellar. Her daughter, Matty, is at the school a few miles away. While waiting out the initial few weeks until she can safely go upstairs, Jo makes [...]

    2. I thought this story was interesting, and I could imagine all the things happening that the author described.The characters were very well written but sometimes it was hard to keep up with the secondary characters who popped in and out of the story. It kept me interested until the end which I won't spoil anything but was a little to much coincidence for me.

    3. Another excellent book by Jacqueline Druga. The few errors were not distracting. As with her other books, she has a knack for really getting you to see the main character's point of view. This did seem to unfold a little too neatly with finding everyone she wanted to locate but I like the positive nature of the ending.

    4. Very goodI enjoy Jacqueline Druga's writing very much. She is consistently inspiring. Awful things happen in her novels and yet her characters manage to survive with their morality intact. There is always hope in her novels, hope for a better future or simply hope.

    5. ExcellentI love Jacqueline Drugas writing style. Her character so loveable and they never give up hope. This author is fast becoming my favorite "disaster" writer!

    6. Dust by Jacqueline Druga is the apocalyptic tale of a small group of friends and their battle to survive the aftermath of a nuclear war. It is a wrecking ball of a story -- smashing through the reader's defenses and evoking myriad emotions as varied as shock, humor, sadness, & joy. The power in this story is the utter plausibility of it. Joanna Collins is not a superwoman, refuses to own a weapon, and is completely unprepared for the apocalypse when it strikes -- despite her survivalist lean [...]

    7. Once again Jacqueline Druga has successfully grabbed and held the attention of the reader or listener (I had the experience of both amazon & audible) plus for the first time Ms Druga was the narrator of the audible version which added a feeling of one telling you a story one on one. The added bonuses as well with the undeniable talent of being engrossed in her writing, and the need to find of what happens next, she also includes a great deal of vital information that could save a life during [...]

    8. Really, really enjoyed this book. For the most part, very realistic and engaging. I thought Jo was a bit irritating every now and again.ly when she had the balls to walk into the military camp with was flooded with THOUSANDS of people, and actually expected a doctor to GO TO HER HOUSE and help her husband. Seriously?? Who the hell does this chick think she is?I also thought Tammy was a bit over-the-top. Who would put up with that kind of verbal abuse?? Kick her ass out and be done with it.Overal [...]

    9. First off, this was read by the author. I nearly didn't listen to this for this fact because authors reading their own work almost always are terrible at it. However, after listening for a while I found I enjoyed the author reading this book. Her voice lends sincerity to the protagonist. This book is about an American family in the immediate aftermath nuclear war. This felt like a very believable scenario should one be fairly prepared for a nuclear strike. I am glad that I am a literary emotiona [...]

    10. I absolutely loved this "end of the world as we know it" story and finished it in just one day. I couldn't put it down! The writing style was similar to most YA that I enjoy in that it was straightforward and fast paced but the story itself seemed to be meant for adults, with adult characters, language, and situations. Definitely recommend this to fans of post-apocalyptic stories who enjoy a quick, exciting read.

    11. Freaking awesome! I could not put this down. I read the whole thing in 1 day and I even worked that day! I loved all the characters and the beginning is very intense. I felt like this was exactly what things would be like. It was a great story!

    12. This is my favourite Druga book. That is saying a lot as she is one of my favourite authors. I started screaming when I found out there is a sequel, When the Ashes Fall. It is a must read

    13. I really enjoyed this one. I would love to read more about these characters, it would be nice to have another book dealing with how life went on after they went to the cabin.
