Finally a book that lives up to the hype... Some copies o this book sell for huge $$$$ on ebay... just like "The Sheep Look Up"--which was BAD.

This book was not. A family living in London when all grass starts dying sees (and hears from a friend) the problems that will be coming to the city (famine, etc) and heads for their relatives farm in the country--one that is easily defended as its surrounded by mountains.

This is the story of their trek to the farm as society breaks down. A great book--not too dated despite when it was written. While I wouldn't pay $$$$ for this... its a good story that SEEMS longer than it is (not many pages) because the story is so intense and detailed.

What happens when the grass and grain supply of the world are destroyed? Excellant read - Frightening!
