Despite the somewhat rushed ending it was a good twist on the post apocalyptic genre. Some good character development. Wondering if Percy plans to write more about these characters. I hope so!

The tale was excellent, and the writing was just awesome!

A fantastic tale. I was reading this on my Nook as I tied my shoes, brushed my teeth, fried my daughter an egg. Percy creates an amazing world and dynamic story, but it's his language that grabs me by the throat, his sheer writing talent. This is no ordinary dystopian thriller, this is an author at the height of his craft, his sentences always a step ab"All those letters licked closed. The disease spread..." or "Now she talks, at first with reluctance and then more and more willingly... as if learning to talk is learning to trust."

This book is so bad I couldn't read the whole thing. The story is a poor imitation of Justin Cronin's The Passage. I will not recommend it. I only give it a star because I'm forced to.
