What I'm reading?

Outpost by Adam Baker


They took the job to escape the world.
They didn't expect the world to end.

Kasker Rampart: a derelict refinery platform moored in the Arctic Ocean. A skeleton crew of fifteen fight boredom and despair as they wait for a relief ship to take them home. But the world beyond their frozen wasteland has gone to hell. Cities lie ravaged by a global pandemic. One by one TV channels die, replaced by silent wavebands. The Rampart crew are marooned. They must survive the long Arctic winter, then make their way home alone. They battle starvation and hypothermia, unaware that the deadly contagion that has devastated the world is heading their way...
My thoughts
So this will be my second "end of the world" book in a row but its ok, you all know i love my dystopia! It does, however, actually sound a little different to the books I generally read so I'm looking forward to reading something a bit different and it sounds awesome and exciting and seems like one of those ones that's actually a bit scary because it could really happen.
What are you reading?
