I received this book as an eARC by the publishers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI loved World War Z so when I saw that this book was written in a similar interview based style I knew I had to read it Overall I really enjoyed this book It was incredibly factual and well thought out for a fictional event that changes human history It was incredibly interesting and the author definitely has a talent for making mind boggling concepts easier to understand for the average reader It was a bit dry due to the interviews mixed with lots of data but I found myself so wrapped up in the interviews and other entries that I really didn t mind Fantastic book for people that liked World War Z s fictional but realistic interviews or people that like reading about alien contact

characters Dahlia Black Keith Thomas ☆ 6 characters Free read Dahlia Black 106 For fans of World War Z and the Southern Reach Trilogy a suspenseful oral history commemorating the five year anniversary of the Pulse the alien code that hacked the DNA of Earth’s population and the response team who faced the world changing phenomenon Voyager 1 was a message in a bottle Our way of letting the galaxy know we existed That we were out here if anyone wanted to find us Over the next forty years the probe flew past Jupiter and Saturn before it drifted into the void swallowed up by a silent universe Or so we thought Truth is our message didn’t go unheard Discovered by Dr Dahlia. So I stumbled upon this ARC and thought is sounded kinda interesting in a fairly generic sci fi novel way Boy was I wrong Its been a very long time since I have been so into a solid sci fi story and Keith Thomas s Dahlia Black a truly uniue pure sci fi storyThe year is 2028 Five years earlier the Pulse was discovered by Dr Dahlia Mitchell an astronomer at the University of California Santa Cruz leading to the greatest transformation of human society in history Unlike many authors before him journalist Keith Thomas sets out to understand the Pulse from a personal perspective of those affected both directly and indirectly by the alien code and what came afterThis book is truly uniue in its approach to storytelling Author Keith Thomas sets up his novel not in traditional style but as if writing a non fiction historical account of first contact with an alien species Instead of experiencing the event as it happens Thomas starts us off after the fact and peels back the layers of truth and speculation surrounding the events with personal interviews diary entries and recorded interview transcripts to paint a picture of not only the event itself but life afterward It is a masterful and powerful storytelling techniue that works wonderfully well and draws you into the story deeper and deeper keeping the reader engaged and excited right through the endI cannot praise this book enough It is very much a top favorite of mine and one I wholeheartedly recommend for all readers not just those sci fi aficionados
