It took a little time to get into this apocalypse tale. The interplay of characters through each stage of the pandemic-caused apocalypse eventually drew me in as I got to know them and the threads of their circumstances. The actor, Arthur Leander, was not the most interesting character, being outshone by others in orbit around him. I especially liked Kirsten for her humanity and killer survival instincts and Clark for his seemingly easy transition into survival. The narrative about Arthur acting while interacting with friends made my think. I can imagine an actor doing that but then thought "Don't we all do that in our lives?"
