I was completely overwhelmed reading the book because, while I know my friend as a highly intelligent and thoughtful person, I had no idea he had the writing skills to create such a well-constructed, unique piece of work! Sure, I knew he wrote, but a good novel is an accomplishment. If I did not know Gary, I would absolutely purchase this and read it again. The characters are well developed and the plot moves along at a clip and kept me wondering where I was headed. Highly recommended.
I also enjoyed the characterization (particularly of the two central female characters) which I felt like realistic - people are funny and flawed and human. The pace throughout is fast without being confusing, and I was entertained until the end, wanting to know what would happen next to the characters I was invested in.
Disclaimer: I probably wouldn't have come across this book if I didn't know the author, but I definitely wouldn't have written this review if I hadn't truly enjoyed the book. For the price, you can't go wrong.
I plowed through the book until the last couple of chapters, when I slowed my reading to make the book last longer! I really enjoyed it, and I recommend it highly.
Set in a not very distant future, when the United States and much of the world is perpetually at war, when all the reports on the constant news feed are bad, and the cities are blacked out at night, the main characters struggle with their own despair and then find themselves caught up in a larger conflict. There are some interesting themes depicted in the book, including the question of whether mankind can be totally happy, and if so, what other characteristics of our human nature would we have to give up to reach that happiness?
