Above is the latest book I have read, Blackout but Marc Elsberg.
I didn't realise quite how we rely on electricity until I read this book. We all know that we use it and lots of things rely on it but if there was a complete power failure as in this book it would be a catastrophe.
In the book hackers get into the smart meters of ordinary homes and what follows is alarming, especially when you realise that this could actually happen.
Not a read for the feint hearted but this book held me to the end and I'm one of those people who can give up on a book half way through if its not gripping me.
I'm just popping round the corner now to stock up on candles, water and canned goods etc just in case. lol
