really liked it

Really great YA novel, especially for boys, I would think but since I liked it so much, girls should not shy away from it. There is a strong girl character, named Viola, who has landed on the planet...The ending is a cliff hanger, I was disappointed in that aspect.

54.28% "This is a coming of age novel in a post apocalyptic world that has lost it's technology in favor of old time religion and farming. The women are dead...The language is stunning and the story well thought out."

63.67% "Todd is fascinating in that he thinks he knows what's going on but we find out as we get into the story that everything he has been told throughout his life is a lie and as he meets people out in the real world, his assumptions keep on getting challenged and he has to adjust his understanding of reality."
