    Best book I've ever read (twice). The unspoken bond between a father and son. Powerful. The apocalypse described at its best.

    I feel the same as second Anonymous: The love the father has for his son is everywhere in this book. The rest was, for me, merely extreme circumstance. I felt sad at the end, but not because of the cruelty.
