So this is basically a end of modern times novel that follows a couple, Cal and Frida, by telling the story while switching between their perspectives. They start in a city, end up in a forest, and then a small enclosed and guarded town, after which the book ends with them in a "community". This book was pretty engaging. It seems pretty realistic, in terms of the fall of society that was portrayed and the resulting circumstances. One aspect that I didn't like was that the book left a lot unexplained in terms of reasoning for some of the characters actions and their thoughts. One thing I did like was the story line and the authors writing style. The way each characters perspective was shared left little room for really becoming engaged with either one or the other. And Frida's brother Micah, I still can't decide how I feel about him. I definitely think this book has sequel potential, as a lot was left unanswered. So overall, this was an enjoyable read.
