By the midway point you want to stop reading as you know something terrible is going to happen and you feel that maybe by stopping it never will and life for this small band of people may just continue without a loss of innocence.

A dense, claustrophobic first half erupts into a looser ending which never quite lives up to the start. A wonderful story to read though.

Film's pretty damn good too.
