Best part of story, including ending:
What I hated about this story is that everyone dies.
Best scene in story:
My favorite scene was when the solar flare comes because it was entertainingly scary.
Opinion about the main character:
What I liked most about Johnathan was that he had the will to find out more information from Diana about Lucinda.
