Lazarus Rising, Sharon K. Grosh

As nuclear bombing pulverizes everything on the surface, find out how five individuals experience catastrophe in tunnels below the surface. This book walks, then runs, moment to moment, starting with a typical day in five lives through a global catastrophic event. Imagine if every decision you make at the start of your day would have far-reaching consequences.

Luming is unsure about his comfortable life. Jane, a dealmaker, has a quirky hobby of preparing for catastrophes. Dan, an off-beat corporate executive facing retirement. Lois, postgraduate in Mandarin and statistics, creates algorithms around spiderweb designs. The final character is a corporate attorney, Michael.

The story clearly describes the impact of multiple nuclear bombs on individuals and the steps they take, the information they process and the moral dilemmas that are created from being alive. This book presents a unique perspective into corporate America and underground marijuana growers and seed-savers.

Lazarus Rising is a novel I was desperate to read ever since discovering it and caught my attention right away thanks to its description which alludes to a nuclear event! Now and then a reader will come across that one book that blows them away, it is a somewhat generic term, but that is what Lazarus Rising did to me… it blew me away and ever since completing it I have been thinking of its intricate and detailed story and how I need to re-read it! That is when you know book lovers that you have come across an incredible book when you are thinking of it when you have a million things to do. That is why I am already going to recommend Lazarus Rising s to you lovely readers, and yes, it may be early on in my review, but Lazarus Rising is a novel not to be missed!

Lazarus Rising for me was thrilling, captivating, and addictive right from the start and I felt this from beginning to end. Lazarus Rising was captivating to me from the start thanks to the unique premise of the story and the bewitching literature courtesy of the author, Sharon K. Grosh who from the start hooked me with her unique story that was unlike anything I have read before!

Lazarus Rising is a thrilling, captivating, and memorable dystopian novel that will take its readers on a journey like no other. The reader in Lazarus Rising will follow five key characters from all different walks of life as they come to terms with the new world they are living in. Their world has been bombed by multiple nuclear bombs and the five characters in Lazarus Rising will have to navigate their life around this and deal with the emotional turmoil that comes with it too, and this book lovers is the short premise of the incredible Lazarus Rising!

The premise of Lazarus Rising is exceptional, original, and unlike anything, I have read before. I loved the many themes and elements explored throughout the book, and all themes are explored by Grosh wonderfully, and she does this by lacing these interesting themes throughout the text flawlessly and weaving them with the story. The result of this makes Lazarus Rising a highly addictive and fascinating read that is never once lackluster or predictable. 

Sharon K. Grosh is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp her reader’s attention from the first page. Grosh instead of writing long, drawn-out builds up which are commonly found in dystopian novels, decides to ditch this approach and thrust her reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is instantly captivated and immersed. I personally love this approach, what is the point of having a long build-up with little excitement? This is only necessary if the author in question can’t develop the characters in the story quickly, but with Lazarus Rising, the reader will not encounter this issue because Grosh instantly develops her characters and makes the reader invest in not only them but also their journeys!

Overall Lazarus Rising is a thrilling, compelling, and thought-provoking novel that will easily entertain readers for many days and nights and so I, of course, have to award this stellar gem of a book five stars!
