  • Great Book That Breaks The Mold Apr 10, 2013
    by Rance V

    This read is considered by many a great work in the genre of "Epic Prose Poetry." I don't like that consideration. I think this is great fiction with commentary over many religious and secular issues. Not to mention the story itself is quite compelling. Read this book.

    i thought this book was interesting and an attention grasper.

  • A brutal compelling read Sep 13, 2012
    by Swede

    Not to be read by anyone who is depressed. This will send him over the edge.

    It's dark, but compelling reading. The world has been scorched by some unknown force for a long time.No food production, no electricity, no police, ... every man for himself.

    A boy and his father make their way to the coast, dodging roving gangs who capture and eat people to survive.

    Nothing specifically repelling or horrific (ala Stephen King, say) but a continuing unrelenting darknesss of scenery. Long abandoned towns, farms,

    A resourceful father trying to save his son. A compelling read with no fun in it.

    The book was in good condition. The story was very good. It was slightly depressing but that was the nature of the plot. Told with good detail.
