Extinction Game by Gary Gibson (Review)

   Could you survive the end of the world? Jerry Beche is the last man on earth, or at least until he meets a group of people known only as ‘The Authority’, and he soon discovers that he has been recruited as a pathfinder. The pathfinders are a group of people who explore apocalyptic parallel universes, however there is something about the Authority that isn’t quite right.
     The reader is thrown immediately into the action, and left reeling at the first chapter, struggling to initially get their head around what was happening, but as information is given to the reader things became clearer. After that the reader get sucked in and held captive. Extinction Game takes the overworked dystopian genre and gives it an exciting twist. There are many apocalyptic parallel universes, all with imaginative reasons for their demise. The characters are well fleshed out and are very interesting. I would recommend this book to others, as it is such an interesting take on such a popular genre (Science Fiction). I give Extinction Game FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS!
