really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

It took me a little while to ease into the language; it’s very different from more contemporary fiction and certainly feels of its time to me. Once I settled in, I did enjoy the story. It mostly focuses on the aftermath of a terrible nuclear attack, in an area that happens to remain habitable. So, more focused on survival, less on the disaster. If you like these kinds of stories, and you think you could get past the language (including accompanying attitudes about women and Black people) this is worth picking up.
