Overall this is a good read - the story of survivors after an all-too-believable escalation of nuclear war leaves them stranded in a hotel in Switzerland. It’s page turning, and it’s an intriguing cast of characters, but I do wonder if the book couldn’t quite decide what it was going to be. It’s part apocalypse thriller, part crime and mystery story, and part social commentary, and I don’t know how well those elements blend together. But I do like how it ended, which is always hard to do in a survival story like this.
