Excellent book. The best post-apocalyptic I have read. Very believable characters. It's been a long time since I read the book, and I am considering ordering it and rereading it. That is rare for me.

I had been warned that the movie was horrible, so I skipped it. No regrets there.

Don't be put off by the movie. If you've read/liked Iron and Wolf, Lucifer's Hammer, Footfall, etc... you'll like this book. A great story of rebuilding after the complete breakdown of society. At first the main character travels around--having deserted the army when his battalion was ordered to guard food and starving civilians rioted. Soon he settles down in a seemingly safe town, however outside a madman has a large band of followers that is quickly becoming an army, looting and killing their way across the territory.

The main character has united local towns by establishing communications (through the postal service/pony express) and must marshall these forces to battle the madman or lose everything. This book is like a few parts all merged into one... some background on the main character and what happend to him as things fall apart (although this is intersperced throughout the story), then details of how he survives once things DO fall apart... then how he (sometimes unwillingly) takes a leadership role in pulling people and resources togeether and rebuilding.

A great PA story.

LOVED IT!!! First book by Brin I've read, and I love the post apocalypse stuff. A little dated, but one can easily get past it. I want to read more of him but would like to avoid the ultra SF stuff. A LOT like THE STAND by S KING. which I also loved. Ignore the negative press from the movie and Read this. Ending a twist!

A classic! This book is fast paced and thought provoking. I couldn't put it down. The movie does not do it justice at all. (does it ever?) I consider this a must read.

I give it 5 stars.
