I'm halfway through The Fireman for the Fireman Readalong. Not sure where other participants are or what they think but here are some of my thoughts at this point.
I didn't know much about the plot starting out. Turns out there is a contagious fungus that causes spontaneous combustion in the human carriers. This contagion is spreading all over the world, with the added bonus of burning down just about everything.
|Humans always end up here in catastrophes, don't they?|
Inevitably, Harper catches the pox, er, fungus and with the help of the Fireman escapes to a utopian abandoned summer camp inhabited by other sick refugees. But we all know what happens to utopias. Eventually they become dystopias.
I love that the main characters are women: Harper, Carol, Allie. Maybe the book should be titled Firewomen instead.
Anyone else imagining Tom Hardy as the Fireman?
Jakob is the most obnoxious, despicable person in the world!
Carol is bonkers.
This book is making me anxious. I might have to put it in the freezer, but it's on my tablet and that would be a bad idea.
