It's supposed to be pretty grim. The tone of the book is very negative. The characters are dysfuctional. The society is very dysfunctional. I would expect it to be after what could be an extinction level event such as the eruption of the Yellowstone caldera. The society is in denial that the world as they know it is over forever. The characters know and their own little world comes unglued along with it. The coping strategies of each character is different and run from denial to fatalism. Having such different ways of dealing with it would naturally precipitate some kind of conflict. By and large the characters aren't all that likable. I doubt that many people would be very pleasant knowing that slow starvation is a good possibility. This is the most optimistic scenario I have seen regarding the future eruption of Yellowstone. Most scenarios have ninety-nine percent of the human race dead in the time line of the books thus far. I'm interested in finding out how long he thinks L.A. will actually last. What has been going on in N.Y.? Why aren't there plagues from failing sewage treatment plants? In my opinon society has coped far too well in the three or four year span of the story. It isn't one of Turtledove's best but I wouldn't be as negative as the other reviews. Besides he rather succintly put why the Serbs and Croats hate each other, something that isn't esy to do.

This was my first ,and last, Harry Turtledove book. None of the characters are likeable. There is no plot, just several unpleasant people living their unpleasant lives. I waited for a story to come together, thinking that something would knit their lives into a drama or mystery but, it never happened. A completely unsatisfying read.

A mega-crisis is going to bring out the best and worst in societies. Turtledove uses a disfunctional and seperated family as the vehicle for describing what it might take to survive a mega-crisis which is just to the good side of total social destruction. Thanks for this and the previous read.

Wasted 12.99 of my money along with a few hours of time. Don't waste yours on this boring story of a family living after the yellowstone supervolcano eruption. Unlikable characters and a plot that consists of people arguing, having kids, complaining about life and each other. This isn't what we expect from the master of alternative history. More dreadful than liberating Atlantis.

Thought it would be a great continuation of the first book but found it to be boring with no excitment. Kept waiting for a page turner, never happened. Afraid to buy the third.

Very disapointing follow up to the first book. Don't waste your $ or time.

Bored. Women have a hard time in this book. I thought I'd give it a chance. Within the last few pages of finishing I quit. I'll never know what happened to the characters and could care less.

Bought this book after reading the first one and there is nothing there. It loads and opens to all blank pages. Be aware people! Anyone know of a way to fix that?

Boring!! Not about disaster aftermath, but about the characters personal interaction. Not what I expected.
