Tom Harding only wants the truth. But the truth is becoming more dangerous with every passing minute.
As a reporter for his high school newspaper, Tom Harding was tracking the best story of his life when, suddenly, his life turned very, very weird. He woke up one morning to find his house empty . . . his street empty . . . his whole town empty . . . empty except for an eerie, creeping fog and whatever creatures were slowly moving toward him through the fog.
Now Tom s once-ordinary world has become something out of a horror movie. How did it happen? Is it real? Is he dreaming? Has there been a zombie apocalypse? Has he died and gone to hell?
Tom is a good reporter he knows how to look for answers but no one has ever covered a story like this before. With the fog closing in and the hungry creatures of the fog surrounding him, he has only a few hours to find out how he lost the world he knew. In this bizarre universe nothing is what it seems and everything including Tom s life hangs in the balance.
Nightmare City is a great read. It’s thrilling, mysterious, and captivating. I could not put it down once I started reading.
Tom’s push for the truth seems to put him in trouble. He woke up to an unsettling world. There are monsters that want him, and there’s nobody else around. There are quite a few action packed scenes, and flashbacks as Tom remembers things that happened before this weird turn of events. The world by Klavan has created is creepy. I love that he didn’t feel the need to use bad language in his story to get the point across. I also love that this book deals with romance, sort of, but it’s not the reason why things happen.
Tom is a great character. He can get a little annoying at times, but only because he’s trying to be reasonable. I love how at certain times friends are around to help him get through the next obstacle. He does quite a bit of digging into his own life to figure out what is going on. He’s definitely a character I would want my son to look up to, and I can’t wait for him to read this book when he gets a little bit older.
