Is October 18, 2012 the end of the World?

Trevor Woodward is an auto-mechanic who is struggling with a father who has Alzheimer’s, in a relationship with a woman he loves and loves to fight with, and he must somehow survive the end of the world as caused by Ivan.

Ivan is a comet on its way to Earth. Scientists predict that it will either collide with Earth or with the Moon. Either way, the impact will bring with it long term ecological changes in the environment, possibly even the extinction of human race.

All Trevor wants to do is finish his work and get home to be with his girl, Kelly-Anne. For some reason it isn't the comet that worries Trevor, but something else. He feels that he's already lived through this disaster many times before. Can he change the future?

"Look!" Kelly-Anne said aloud. "Meteors."

Trevor turned toward the city and watched the rocks streak across the sky and disappear on the horizon. Something was coming. The question on his mind was probably the same as for most people on the mountain. The sober ones, at least. Would this be it? A memorable night with a few shooting stars or was this the precursor of a much more serious event?

A review:
In the novella October 18, 2012, author William R. Potter attempts and succeeds in putting a fresh spin on the end of the world comet about to smack into the `ol earth scenario.

We meet Trevor Woodward and his buddies finishing up the work day as Ivan the comet zeroes in on our beloved planet. The banter between Woodward and his auto repair colleagues may seem over-the-top to some but I assure you (as the nephew of the owner of a sheet metal fabrication shop) this is how working guys talk to each other. Fabulous dialogue here!

As pandemonium over the advancing comet begins, Woodward just wants to get home to his girlfriend, Kelly-Anne. Again the exchanges between Trevor and his girlfriend are realistic as stress and fear can cause the closest couples to lash out at each other.

There was a tender moment where Trevor manages to spend time with his ailing father who suffers from dementia. You may need the tissues here.

Overall, this is a well-written, quick read that will be a welcome addition to your Kindle or other ebook reader.
