Brilliant Read, 23 Jun. 2009
What a fantastic read. Although this book was written in the 1950's, it could easily apply to the modern world. Set over a few days in the aftermath of a disease which kills all grasses, we find the main characters beliefs and morals tested to an extreme which few could imagine. Similar apocolyptic references as John Wyndhams Day of the Triffids I can thoroughly reccommend this book.
