really liked it
bookshelves: post-apocalypse
Read in December, 2012

A serious veer off My Path to Read Happier Books. I have loved reading apocalyptic books since I was a teen, so how could I skip this one, a book that's gotten a lot of great press?

Since nobody really warned me, I'll let you in on a few things. It's dark, dark, dark. It's big B Bleak. There are a few humans left alive on earth. Most of the ones left alive are constantly thinking about how to stab or shoot or trap the many, many threats out there in this new world. Shooting and fighting on every page.

Great writing, of course, and lots of truth, but a major downer.

Elizabeth☮ i am reading this right now. it is quite dark. i am wincing at much of the situations. it is a lighter shade of mccarthy's the road.
