my take: This is an amazing book. I'm not a huge fan of post-apocalyptic fiction .... The Road was a bit much for me. Sooooo dark and heavy.
This is poetic, emotional, powerful, quiet and intense. The writing is beautiful. A celebration of life and nature in post-apocalyptic Colorado.
I read this on the beach in the Bahamas and I was tense & terrified as I read parts and sobbing as I read another section...climb in if you're ready for the ride.

my verdict: excellent
