really liked it

I read a review that says this book has a "middle-grade" feel to it, and I totally agree. But that doesn't mean it wasn't a fantastic book - it was - and one I enjoyed immensely. Nailer is a likable main character, with just the right amount of youth hardened with his tough circumstances of living in a World where he has to scavenge for scrap metal. And let's talk about the World in this book for a minute - wow - totally plausible and believable. I think it was the strongest point of the book, because other than Nailer and his father ... and maybe Tool, I didn't connect well with the other characters in the book.

I should note that my 12 year old son didn't love this one - he only finished it because he doesn't like to leave a book he's started unread.
