Patricia asked:

Did anyone else find it a little too violent?

Leah I did. I agree with Grommit about the hanging of his mom. I understand why there would be violence in a post-apocalyptic world, but this book was definitely grimmer than the others.
Grommit Violent? Yes, but in a nasty way. Did the author really have to hang and shoot the mom? Did the guards really need to open fire at a soccer match? I expect post-apocalyptic tales to feature violence, but this was violent in a pathological way.
Crystal Hm, not really, but that may be because I tend to read violent books. I actually don't think it was exciting enough.
Angie Antzak I thought it was a bit heavy at times.
