I almost put this book down for good, I hated the first few pages so much. The characters you are initially introduced to are so unpleasant, I just didn't want to spend a whole book with them! Thankfully, they aren't the main perspective.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE disaster and dystopian fiction, and I will totally admit that I'm not exactly picky. You throw in a volcano, looming asteroid, zombies, tsunami, whatever, and some survival activities, and I'm pretty happy, but I was really happy with this book. Tsunamis really haven't been done so much, and a lot of books deal just with the aftermath, and not the destructive event.

More than anything though, I think I was most pleased to read an adult fiction book in this genre! So much dsytopian type fiction is YA.

This book probably isn't for everyone, but if you like disaster stuff, you'd probably like it.
