Atomic Number Sixty by Dave Johnston is an interesting, quirky little novel with an interesting premise. The reader should be able to finish the book in one hour … or so. Each of the sixty chapters begins with a time stamp in the upper right, just to keep you motivated, of course. In fact, the time stamp is not for you; it is for Holly. It marks the last hour of her life and she asks the all-important question that many of us have asked ourselves, mostly in some sort of party game atmosphere. What would you do or think about or feel if you knew you had only one more hour to live? Or one more year, or one more day. There are lots of variations on “the game.” And this game is more vital than the other party games Holly suggests, Scrabble or Snakes and Ladders, played naked.
