really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, post-apocalyptic
Read in August, 2009

How would you live your life if, in utero, you received a true prophecy that the earth would be struck by a comet in 2012 and the human race would become extinct? This novel explores that question with Vonnegut-like writing and with sympathy for all of the characters. A couple things didn't work for me, but there are a lot of great scenes, such as when the narrator meets his future girlfriend, which happens to take place at school on the day of the Challenger explosion.
