I was given a copy of The Fall, a novel of post-apocalyptic Australia, Book 1 Conversion by S.T. Campitelli in exchange for an honest review.
The Fall, a novel of post-apocalyptic Australia, Book 1 Conversion by S.T. Campitelli is a detailed version of what we could be facing when a deadly and destructive virus spreads unchecked. Unlike most where there is one country or individual to blame, we are given another unique possibility.
The story begins in 2052. Survivors who are fortunate enough to have been granted admittance to these secure structures survive while others less fortunate are left outside to fend for themselves with the deadly creatures that roam freely seeking out fresh human meat to consume or infect. Not only do the Kulin survivors have the infected hordes to worry about but now they have some serious betrayal issues but also an insanely unbalanced villain that will wreak havoc.
Campitelli develops his characters vividly and with subtle yet in-depth detail. No one will have any issues visualizing each character. The plotline moves smoothly yet at a fast action packed rate that leaves one on the edge of their chair. I had difficulty putting the book down after I started it!
Campitelli is a masterful word-smyth building a storyline that is both engaging and exciting. His dialogs are perfectly matched to the situation and characters. He leaves no stone unturned, the audience has a thorough picture of what is going on yet still manages to surprise us multiple times! I like that he not only took Australia as the setting but the way he broke the story up giving his audience multiple points of view.
As a first time author, he hit it out of the ballpark with this book! He has definitely set the standards high for himself but I am confident he will continue – he is a gifted author who innately writes good solid books.
If you enjoy horror, apocalyptic stories, and realistic scenarios, this is the book for you!
A definite 5-star review due to his innate writing skills and unique storyline.
