In many ways this was a brilliant book. I won't give anything away about the apocalypse that's featured here other than to say that that's the most brilliant and shocking part of the book. The writing style, in which far too many of the characters' thoughts are catalogued, left something to be desired for me as I'm typically more interested in what happens than what people are thinking, especially in this type of story.

The first in a trilogy, I probably will not come back for more. Apparently this has already been optioned for a movie and I can see why considering the easy sell ("... a darker, more visceral Hunger Games!").
