really liked it
Read from June 13 to 16, 2012

I didn't think I'd like this one, with its post-apocalypse setting and herky-jerky language. But Hig is a wonderful character and his story quickly burrowed under my skin. Once I got the rhythm of the language I found it beautiful. A surprisingly moving and tender story.

Emily Crowe Elli, I found the narrator's language an issue at the beginning, too, but boy howdy, now I'm totally hooked and can't wait to finish it.

Ellen I love it when a book surprises me, the way this one did...

switterbug (Betsey) I'll keep an eye out...
