Customer Review

on March 22, 2010
This a fantastic book about a father and son struggling to survive in a post apocalyptic world. The prose has been stripped down to simplicity as have the desperate lives of the characters we follow- there is little punctuation and very small paragraphs. The story and setting is grim and the plot is as desolate as the landscape- don't expect a fast paced, eventful or action packed story (as some reviewers inexplicably seemed to have on this site). This is the apocalypse and the outlook is bleak, the book moves as a slow pace and the simplest of moments such as finding life saving food become the big events of the book, it's about suffering, desperation and human nature- I couldn't put it down and read it extremely quickly. If you like your books to have clear aims, agendas and plot lines along with all your questions answered and every ambiguity explained then don't read this book.
