really liked it
bookshelves: popular-fiction, dystopian-fiction

A bit pedantic at times, but her vision of the future and an economic collapse is not merely plausible, but chilling. It slows down a bit in the middle, but picks up again towards the end. It's very American in scope, which is a bit myopic at times, but parallels the political and economic dumpster fire down south, and I wish it had more about what might happen with Canada in it. Nonetheless, a good read.
