Apocalypse All the Time by David S Atkinson is a fictional tale of an imaginary world in which an apocalypse is an everyday occurrence. Apocalypse All the Time takes us through the world via the eyes of Marshall, a person who is so used to an apocalypse happening on a regular basis that he accepts it as part of routine life. In this alternate world, we meet fantastic creatures and encounter other-worldly phenomena that give the reader a chance to experience the thoughts and feelings that we would experience if we ever had an apocalypse in this world we live in. This is an interesting glimpse into an alternative reality that answers some fundamental questions about life and the universe itself through this storytelling, with an unexpected and surprise ending.

Although Apocalypse All the Time by David S Atkinson is a fiction novel, it certainly has a philosophical bent to it and indeed reads as a parable. I enjoyed the way the author has woven real and universal questions about life itself in this story that inspire and encourage the reader to reflect and come up with the answers himself. The scenes of mayhem and the fantastic creatures are portrayed vividly, and indeed I could almost experience the earthquake or the volcano in the way these have been depicted. This is a short and easy book with a fluid style of writing. All in all, I found Apocalypse All the Time to be an entertaining as well as philosophical read.
