After reading 600 Miles and very much enjoying it, I had to give the sequel a go. Like 600 Miles the writing is excellent: the descriptiveness of the sights, sounds, smells, and general squalor of the post apocalypse is very vivid and makes everything come to life. The story is about Elgin and a slave girl journeying north through California in search of a better life and struggling to survive along the way. There are some very sad moments but some hopeful ones too, and even some funny ones to help break the seriousness of the post apocalyptic gloom. I found Elgin a very endearing character. He is a simple man of moral principles trying to do what's right in a violent and crazy post apocalyptic world. His hillbilly way of speaking was very entertaining and really added to my enjoyment of the book. Overall a great read and highly recommended.
