Can you imagine a world where people become infected with violence from watching television? In Kathleen Rovner’s “TV Apocalypse” she imagines it through Daisy, a stay at home mom of two young children. One day she wakes up with a splitting headache and none of the televisions work anymore, not knowing what has happened she turns to the internet and radio. It has been discovered that people have become almost zombie like, but instead of craving brains, they crave violence. As Daisy learns more about the infected people’s symptoms she worries she may be turning into one too. Will she be able to stay with her family or will she be forced to leave to protect her family from herself?
This book was a little slow at first, but once Daisy’s husband came back into the story it picked up. I really identified with Daisy’s character as I also am a stay at home mom to two young ones. Reading Daisy describe her children’s actions made me laugh in solidarity. There was a little bit of everything in this book, comedy, drama, and action. I found it engaging and a quick read as I wanted to know more, but of course this is just the first book of a series so I will have to wait to know the whole story! I gave this book four out of five stars, and am looking forward to reading the rest of this series!
