it was ok

Read on July 25, 2011 — I own a copy , read count: 1

I've got to ask why the heck is this a classic? I get it shows what we may revert to in a emergency situation but there are many books that do that (and do it better). This book didn't have enough back story and too many characters were randomly named/mentioned but we never get to see how their stories play out.

(view spoiler) It felt pointless and well... stupid.
