really liked it
Read in December, 2009 , read count: 1

My brain made a mistake and thought that this was the reading for the post-apocalyptic book club. It wasn't, but I'm glad I read this anyway. It's an interesting speculation on what might happen if genetic engineering and pharmaceuticals go awry. It follows the life of the last non-modified man as he tries to scavenge from the ruins of a ruined society. I especially liked it because of the details about what would be left over in the months and years after a massive catastrophe. I also nearly referred to a wolvog in conversation as if they were real creatures, which I think is a testament to this book's effectiveness.

Definitely recommended.
