6/26/12 ** Heard about this on an interview on NPR's All Things Considered on 6/25/12. It sounded interesting and I was intrigued because the apocalypse seems to have some similarities to my husband's book, ASHFALL. The only other rating I saw on GoodReads described it as a literary novel - not my typical book. I've requested it from my library (64th on the list with a dozen copies on order). I'll give it a try.
