The Blast Was really good. I loved how it was a quick and easy read I finished it in a day. Also I loved the characters and Todd and Bea awkward teen talk. Another thing I liked is the time line of her life, we got to see her grow up. The only thing I didn’t like was the love story, it felt really fake to me. Like we just met and bam I’m in love with you. Like give it sometime to grow. But I can understand this is the apocalypse but like c’mon. Beside that I really enjoyed this book. I recommend it for anyone who wants a quick read.
