I disliked this book so much that after I finished it, I threw it in the trash. I don't understand why so many people are raving about it. The man is amoral at best. He calls himself a "good guy," but he refuses to help anyone. The only time he gives some food away was when his little boy begs him to help.
What really enrages me is that this man leaves his small boy alone in a dead world to face starvation, the elements, and cannibals. The man doesn't have the moral fiber to kill his child when he knows he's dying. He could not have known that a family would just "happen along" to take in his son after his death ( I thought it was rather convienent of the author).
The whole book is a contrived piece of garbage.
