I didn't know what to expect when I decided to read this book. Cicadas don't bother me where I live, but I've read about how annoying they can be. When I sat down to read Brood X, I latched on to each of the characters. They could be your next door neighbors or even family. I liked them a lot! The plot is realistic enough and well developed. The story quickly builds with the anticipation of the coming Brood X. Seth thinks the "preppers" are overreacting and he thinks the emergence of the cicadas will be an annoyance but nothing more. He convinces his wife that there is nothing to worry about.
This scenario seems to occur before every major storm. Reporters highlight these unprepared people on the news and things don't always turn out well. The characters made everything about Brood X a little more believable. The author does a wonderful job creating realistic scenes of chaos and panic. There are also situations where you can feel the desperation and experience the despair felt by the characters.
I can imagine billions of these bugs wreaking havoc and causing some of the problems mentioned in the book. I won't give away the details, but I will say that once I opened the book to read it, I couldn't put it down until I reached the end. It is better than I ever expected and for me, it was a quick read. It's a memorable book and it makes you think about how important it is to always be prepared!
