Review of ‘The Meek’

Posted on Updated on

Something of a loner, and an under-achiever, Harlan is visiting his friend in Los Angeles when the people around him start dying from some mysterious ailment. For reasons he doesn’t understand, Harlan survives. He thinks he’s alone until he meets a man who takes him captive and uses him as a slave, while at the same time, abusing the girl he also holds captive. They finally manage to escape, and encounter other survivors, and a situation that forces Harlan to explore his own ethical boundaries in order to ensure their survival.
The Meek by J. D. Palmer is a dystopian novel that blurs the line between science fiction and intrigue. The story moves at a measured pace, with brief spurts of action, as Harlan learns just how far he is willing to go—how far he is able to go—in order to survive in a world gone mad.
I received a free copy of this book. I give it four stars.
