So I finally finished The Hopkins Manuscript. It turned out to be really good. Over half the book was pre-cataclysm, but even that part was interesting; seeing how people react to and prepare for impending disaster. It takes place in England, and it was funny how the characters were so proper and British. Like on the evening before the world might end, the main character was still worried about social niceties and his maid still came over to make his dinner.
But overall, it was very enjoyable. I’m surprised I had never heard of it before, since it’s a great example of a fairly early end of the world story.
For my next read, I’m going to stray away from PA again, and am going to try my first graphic novel, Watchmen. I’ve heard a lot about it over the years and came across it at the library, so am going to give it a try.
