"The Dog Stars"

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 source: Surfing Amazon.

my verdict: excellent


  1. Anne couldn't put it down, so of course we all wanted it next. I think I was on the list after Vange and Jenn. But ha, I just got on Kindle from the lucky day.

  2. I devoured this one. To quote a Kevin Henkes line in his book Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse "Wow, that is all I can say. Wow." I read it on an airplane and the guy beside me kept reading over my shoulder. Very irritating. And he'd read it before. Good thing I am married to him or I may have hit the call light!

  3. apparently i'm signed into google on my son's account ...
