it was amazing
bookshelves: 2009, fiction, post-apocalyptic, sci-fi
Read in April, 2009

** spoiler alert ** i love this book! which is great since most of the books i've read lately have been meh to decent. but i couldn't put this one down! stayed up til 4am on the weekends and 2am on the "school nights" reading it.

it wasn't so much "post apocalyptic" as "apocalyptic" meaning the book took place as the collapse of society was happening. you got to see things fall apart, as well as the increasing desperation of the people.

the back cover says something about jesus, but that doesn't come in until the last quarter of the book, and really isn't that big of a plot point. it didn't add much to the story at all.

i would have liked to have known what the plague WAS, even if they didn't find a cure for it.

but it was definitely an interesting take on the plague/disease type of apocalyptic novel.
