Book Review – Worst-Case Scenario: a short story by Paul Falk

All life on earth is doomed to be destroyed by an approaching asteroid.  This is the scenario depicted by Paul Falk and described mostly in the first person by narrator, James Stone.  When the impending doom is announced by television media wholesale panic ensues and the frightening situation Stone finds himself in leads him to take desperate measures.

It is possible the story can be thought as an indictment of modern day gun carrying American society.  I don’t think the method used to switch to a different point of view at the end of the story worked.  But I did sympathise with the central character and my concern for his welfare, and those closest to him, kept me absorbed to the end.
