really liked it

I won this through a goodreads giveaway, and I am quite pleased. Spare,calm writing helped elevate this sci-fi to literary fiction. I knocked off one star for not developing the character of Nico more, but perhaps that will be left to a sequel. I liked that not everything turns out the way you expect in this book. It is a thinking man's pre-apocalyptic treatment of how humanity might react in the face of destruction. It is a soft reminder that none of us really have a right to judge. Yet, at the same time, how much are we really willing to let go?
