I'm not a reader who always jumps at the idea of a serial novel, but at times I do. Life After sounded like a good concept that could work for the serial form, so I took a chance with the first episode.
For being about 7k words long, I feel that the author was able to establish just enough of the world and a few characters to keep me intrigued to keep going in the novel. So far it doesn't sound like there's much to call unique about the story compared to many of the dystopic, near future in America stories/novels out there, but I don't have much to base a solid opinion on yet. It seems like a good start, and has the potential to expand into a great novel.
I'll have to see if I can get my hands on episode two (or debate on getting one of the many bundles available) and see where this story goes.
