Really good book. I loved that Florman never left questions unanswered and really described things the way they would HAVE to happen. Nothing just fell into their laps, they had to follow the realistic process which is where this book truly shined. It was very well-rounded with characters and sub-plots. I would definitely recommend this book, especially for anyone into post-apocalyptic sci-fi.
