  1. Great book. The first time I finished it, I had to just sit & think for a while. Then I started all over again. I read a review that said “there wasn’t an extraneous word in the book”, I’d like to add that there wasn’t a single detail added that wasn’t necessary to the plot. We readers were definately reading on a need-to-know basis.

    • The writing was spare yet evocative. It wasn’t very descriptive as far as narrative is concerned, but the reader can still imagine the ashen world that the author is depicting.
