I am absolutely haunted by this book. Initially I was reluctant to read it, thinking it would be like The Road, too painful to contemplate. But it had more of beauty to it than loss - and humor and terrific characterization and suspense. It is a survival story, one that portrays catastrophic loss and quietly suggests why we would even consider wanting to to survive the unspeakable.

I wanted to read it again as soon as I had finished.
