The screenwriter-turned-novelist wrote a book titled "Lockdown" in about a global pandemic. Fifteen years later, that's our reality due to coronavirus, which has so far infected more than 1.

Lockdown is a massive disappointment and I only read it now because of its topicality during the time of COVID lockdown. It’s a real potboiler and, although the previously far fetched setting in London during a pandemic lockdown has now become all too real, the plot is poor B movie stuff/5(66).

When I heard about Peter May's book, Lockdown, a thriller written 15 years ago, a book set during a flu pandemic, a book just being published for the first time in April Lockdown book, I was intrigued, given COVID and the current state of the world.

But, for that same reason, this book was at times hard to read: the empty streets, the shattered 4/5. Lockdown: Escape from Furnace, is a Horror Science-Fiction novel, written by Alexander Gordon Smith. Escape is a powerful theme in Lockdown, the only way Alex has a chance at life.

If Alex doesn’t break free from his emotional and physical prisons, he might as well just be another robotic prisoner in the monotony of his prison/5(). Lockdown was an extremely hard book for me to rate.

Usually I generally have a feeling on what rating a book will get, but this one left me feeling Lockdown book conflicted. On the one hand, it's a super fast paced, action packed book that never once made me bored while reading/5.

In this prison, secret horrors are breaking free.

I love Peter May's novels so just had to read this book, a pandemic thriller, which given the circumstances happening throughout the world with Covid19, is eerily realistic. Peter May wrote Lockdown in and 5/5(3).
