** spoiler alert ** This book was very dark and depressing yet I overcame the negative topic and found myself unable to put it down. I read it one sitting and appreciated the powerful relationship between a father and a child. The will to live and and protect our young is a timeless subject and despite the end of the world theme, I hoped for some sort of glimmer of hope that the earth could be restored. I ended the book hoping for the best. The author doesn't give concrete answers and the reader can form their own ending.
