Clarke Award 2013. THE ROAD - but with hope. Hig, bereaved and traumatised after global disaster, has three things to live for - his dog Jasper, his aggressive but helpful neighbour, and his Cessna aeroplane. He's just about surviving, so long as he only takes his beloved plane for short journeys, and saves his remaining fuel. But, just once, he picks up a message from another pilot, and eventually the temptation to find out who else is still alive becomes irresistible. So he takes his plane over the horizon, knowing that he won't have enough fuel to get back. What follows is scarier and more life-affirming than he could have imagined. And his story, THE DOG STARS, is a book unlike any you have ever read.Hide synopsis

I am absolutely haunted by this book. Initially I was reluctant to read it, thinking it would be like The Road, too painful to contemplate. But it had more of beauty to it than loss - and humor and terrific characterization and suspense. It is a survival story, one that portrays catastrophic loss and quietly suggests why we would even consider wanting to to survive the unspeakable.
I wanted to read it again as soon as I had finished.
