Overall, the characters were well developed and their background was filled in with enough detail to give them depth, enabling one to understand how they dealt with thier situations. There could have been more detail about the post apocalytic world, but this did not detract from the overall story. The plot was straight forward with enough twists and action to keep the story flowing without hanging. The behaviour and emotions of the characters were well handled and made them appear human and not cardboard, and the interaction between the individuals addded to the sense of desperation and frustration with their circumstances.
I found this an entertaining and enjoyable book to read, one I would class as ‘light’ reading despite the content.
