After the earth inexplicably begins to heat up, natural catastrophes change the face of the world. A small band of young people must make their way in the ruins, struggling to find food and avoiding capture by cannibalistic tribes.
This is a very British novel, but reminded me much of Stephen King's _The Stand_ and Robert McCammon's _Swan Song_, two similar novels about the end of the world. Scenes of a flooded London are especially memorable. Highly recommended!
Yet get through the often nauseas barrier of the first act, and there is a delightful apocalyptic tale that is up there with Wyndham's Triffids and War of the Worlds. Brilliance and blood in equal measures!
