This was our book club book for July. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend our meeting, so I don't know what they others thought. This is an end of the world book, well not end, but could this be the end of the world? book. I thought it was a unique take on how it could happen. I think the author researched well and thought of a lot of stuff that really could happen - how people would react, how people would choose to live (or not to live.) It makes you think, what would be your reaction, what would you do.
