Already set in my idea of hell this splendid book just becomes more hellish
Everyone loves a good disaster, and this is a great tale of a good disaster. between you, me and the vicar, the notion of living in a pre-apocalyptic new york has always sounded like hell heaped on purgatory heaped on a disaster anyway, but the addition of a total breakdown in this flimsy flibbetygibbet that we humans think is a civilisation just added the little marzipan demon to the top of the cake. the writing is taut and the plot lines trundle along well. the only part that never works for me in such tales is the introduction of freezing, wintry conditions as part of the torture - i'm built for winter, always have been, and i loathe summers and any temperatures over about 63°f. you'd be better off threatening me with blue sky and sunshine. most splendid - recommended.
