Shane A quick read this one, you should get thru it in a couple of hours (LOL). I quite enjoyed it, but it is bleak. What I would've liked to have known was what had happened to the world that caused such devastation. I realise that's not what the book was about tho. Worth a look.

Jo I have been meaning to read this for over a year i think. I was told not to read it in winter because it's so bleak. Maybe i will get to it soon!

message 4: by Mark (new) - rated it 1 star

Mark I'm struggling my way through it but it's a bit pointlessly grim. Nobody has names, nothing happens, the writing style is very sparse and doesn't really offer much 'in between the lines' insight

Jo Hmm, that doesn't sound so good. I must admit, I keep putting it off because it isn't appealing so much to me the more I hear about it.
