A deadly disease strikes, and in very short order, society breaks down. We follow a neighborhood's response to the catastrophe.

I found this to be a very antiseptic novel. We know a lot of people have died; but we don't see it and we don't deal with it. None of the people we're supposed to care about die, they don't even get sick. One pudgy woman gets thin enough to wear a belt she's admired. There's a wonderful description late in the book about a murder of crows that aptly describes the horror that's going on peripherally and that I wanted to read about, but didn't get to.

I don't understand why a community would start a free medical clinic but totally ignore figuring out the food situation. Didn't starving people drag themselves to the clinic? No, it was a complete surprise how many people died that first winter. We don't even know if there was a concerted community effort to bury them.

There's a rather long segue about a crime being committed, and the aftermath of that crime.

Morality is muddled, and not always in a sensible way. For example: our protagonists, who are allied with the police, are scavenging through a neighborhood. They run into other scavengers, and with their superior numbers, firepower and police connections chase the scavengers off, and loot their stuff. I wish they had at least split it with the scavengers. They weren't even looking for this stuff. They just rooted around after they chased the scavengers off and thought hey, maybe we can use this.

But, I finished the whole book. Ultimately, I felt these people had dignity and were trying to do the right thing.

They definitely address the food situation in the spring and that was interesting to read about.

Well written and easy to become engrossed within the text. Easy flow to the book. Recommended for a relaxing evening with a good glass of wine.

A realistic assessment of post apocalyptic life, a believable scenario. While there is some extraneous gunplay most of the story relates to the realities of living from day to day.
