A father must protect his son as they try to scrape together a life in this sparse post-apocalyptic tale.

I think it is pretty well established that I get a little too involved with dystopic novels and might sometimes get confused about whether or not they are really happening. But I read most of this book in the cold on my front stoop while I was locked out of my house and smoking to keep warm, and, yeah, I kept thinking I was the only person carrying the fire. Even as parents with toddlers and small dogs strolled past me.

This was part of the extremely anxious night I had. I played “Resident Evil 4” for like nine solid hours, to the point that it was all I could see when I shut my eyes. Then I read this book in my empty apartment and I was pretty sure the world had ended– except for a handful of rogues who would attempt to catch me and chain me in their basement so they can slice off and consume slices of my flesh.

I had forgot how different the last fifty pages were to the movie.

Damn, I just want to punch some motherfuckers.
