I read it. It was a little slow but still a good book. Entertainment Magazine, not the most intellectual source, said it was one of the best books
of the last twenty years.
As far as survivalism goes, it does a decent job of painting a sad true story of what it might be like if the **** hit the fan. Came away thinking I
would not want to be one of the "lucky" ones cause. Everyone is just scrounging for what food is left. Since there is a nuclear winter going on,
nothing is growing. So the book never gives you much hope that some humans will survive long enough to start farming again once the earth comes back
I don't remember it going into things like, are there VIPs in some huge bunker somewhere waiting things out.
Are there survivors on some tropical island somewhere doing well.
It does spend a lot of time on what it might be like to be alone, very worried about keeping your son safe from bandits who will do unthinkable
