This seemed like pertinent reading during this 'economic downturn.' Unlike other Apocalyptic novels I have read "Soft Apocalypse" starts out in a place that doesn't look too far down the road from our current time. The characters still remember back when they could just "google" things and got to play with Xbox 360s as children.

The book has social, ecological and political stances, but never seems to weigh down the narrative or hit the reader over the head with them.

There are some questions that were never answered throughout the book as well as large chunks of time that go pretty much unaccounted for, as the book follows the beginning of the apocalypse to a kind of ending/beginning for the characters, or humanity.

This would be a great book club book for Teens and has many topics that would make great discussion.
