One of the best post apocalyptic fiction novels that I've ever read and my experience with the genre is becoming no small thing. I love the split timeline viewpoints that jump back and forth between 15 year old Eric and 75 year old Eric. The only thing that I didn't like was Rabbit's death. I don't know if I would have thrown that in. It served no purpose other than to prove some metaphorical statement about the futility of life and death. The unanswered questions left at the end of this novel are almost endless and I like that too. Is the rest of the Earth inhabited? Will the rest of the humans die off? Will the human race discover the library one day? Will they even know what it is or what it means? How long before it's discovered?
