Author of AGAINST A DARKENING SKY, THE EMPTY ROOM, OUR DAILY BREAD, and others. Find out more at www.LaurenBDavis.com. I read as if my sanity depended upon it.. . . oh, wait, it does! Snort.
Post-societal collapse novel with a well-thought out world, but very slow pacing and characters I couldn't latch onto. The ending, too, disappointed.
This book received a lot of attention thanks to Stephen Colbert's plug during Hachette's dispute with Amazon. This may prove that one doesn't need Amazon to have a bestseller, and for that I'm grateful, but although this book shows an author of considerable promise, I was engaged with this novel.
