Narrated by Chris Barnes
What do you do when the world goes to pot and there's nothing anyone can do to stop it? People, homes, cars, animals, everything is decaying; there's no food and no immunity either. That's what pretty much took place in this apocalyptic tale.
The world rotted away.
The Rot is the story of the world's end. Adam is a test subject. After volunteering to sport a phenomenal environment suit, that recycles your sweat, urine and fecal matter to ensure survival, the world went to pot. Ha!- that was a pun; you catch it? It takes everything in Adam to survive the effects of the mysterious plague that turns every day people into raving, brainless lunatics. With society totally abandoned, he has to find a way to continue on, and find someone to extend the human race's deadline.
I liked The Rot for a couple of reasons. First off, the narrator, Scottish Chris Barnes, has an excellent voice and accent. Had it been baby babble, with a few words here and there, I'd have listened! His voice made it for me. Don't get me wrong, I liked the story too, but it's like the book was made for him to tell. Secondly, the story carried a different take on the end of the world concept.
How many times have people tried to come up with a story on a body suit that's made to be a second skin? It extends Adam's life and makes you wonder, what happens when he thinks the plague, disease or whatever has gone away? Can he get out of it? What about his body and functions after being inside for so long?
It's a cool story and one that makes you think, but not too long. It was just enough to get my spook on for entertainment. Check it out!
