The Oblivion Society - Marcus Alexander Hart This was a spectacular failure. The book promised so much. I liked the name, the post-apocalyptic setting, some good pop culture references at the start, etc. etc.

But suddenly, Hart dumbed down all the "bad" guys in his book. There is the boss of the departmental store where Vivian (female protagonist) works who couldn't count and then there is the main "villain" who is the most annoying bad guy you will ever read about.

The female lead (Vivian) was quiet interesting but other characters (especially the bad ones) were very very annoying.

This book deserved less than 1 star but twice it made me guffaw, so I would give it a generous 2 star rating. I wish whole book was like that.
