A fabulous title for a rambling, uninteresting novel. You never really know if the man's wife is missing or not although this premise is very enticing. Our main character could be imagining it all and if indeed he is insane, it is not amusingly so.
A weak read, dull and unengaging. Chose another.
This book is for all Armaggedonites. I enjoy end-of-the-World scenario books and "Earth Abides" is supreme. Written 60 years ago, the story is somewhat predictable but holds up beautifully in a today's completely new culture. Stewart whisks through 20 years of post-apocalypse time, which he needed to grow his population, but it is nicely done by naming each year for significant events.
I love this book and it shall become a favorite along with "Lucifer's Hammer" and "The Stand." Worth double the price.
I would have loved to wrap up this story. We didn't and neither did the author. I actually can't remember much of it because my mind strayed so often that many words were left stranded.
I love the idea of odd 0ff-worlders taking over. It's a time honored prize-winner. Ultimately, I know the goal is to wrap everything up and usually have the good guys (us humans) win. I miss that in this book.
I loved "SPIN" and hoped for a similar experience. Thanks for writing it, but I feel cheated.
