A Better Take on the Apocalypse

In the wake of all this 2012 nonsense, this post-apocalyptic book about two sisters in the midst of society's fall is a relief. The realistic way in which the world slowly deteriorates is interesting and believable. The author is an amazing writer and the story is filled with interesting facts about everything from plants to ballet.

The only thing that was a disappointment in the story was the sisters' incestuous relationship and the protagonist's sudden ability to produce milk. The overall novel was surprisingly realistic and these issues seemed to push it towards a more unbelievable event. The book would have survived without the girls' relationship and their survival was miracle enough that the breast-feeding was overkill and unnecessary.

Overall, I recommend everyone to read this book, especially the first three-quarters, just to experience the idea of a slowly decaying society and the author's amazing talent with words.

I have read alot of books, and even though I am not a young adult I read alot of YA books. Adult books tend to get a little raunchy at times so i like to get away from that sometimes. This book was a huge dissapointment to me, the idea behind the book sounded great and most of the reviews were positive but i would have to say this was the worst book I have ever read. It wasnt because of the incest or the spontanious milk production that did it in for me, it was the shear lack of any action or really any substance at all. About half way through I realized that it wasn't going to pick up. I found myself skimming through the parts of her childhood memories to get back to present day hoping something would happen but it never did. The ending was a little better than the rest of the book but thats really not saying much at all. Do yourself a favor and save your money and time for a decent book.

    Extreme self-sufficiency

    The book at first remeinded me a little bit of The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Self-sufficiency and family love do prevail, but what does the future hold? I had a lot of questions in my mind after I finished the book.

    Keep a box of tissues on hand!

    This book is wonderfully written, heartwrenchingly poingiant, and deeply disturbing. the most terrifying part was that it was so easy to believe. I am a dancer like Eva, and connected deeply with the horror of a world without music. I gave this to all four of my sisters to read, and the agree with me that every woman should read this book!
