The Dog Stars - Peter Heller That's why I like Sience Fiction.

I've always been fascinated by stories like this, not because I'm interested in how(or why) the world ends, but because of the way the characters react to what is happening around them. Everyone in these novels starts from essentially the same place, yet the choices that they make can be wildly different, and the retention or loss of humanity that follows those choices is what fascinates me.

At first it was difficult to get used to the staccato sentences, but in the end, I've got to admit, that this kind of structure fitted the tune of the book perfectly.

Not in structure, but in atmosphere, this book remindes me of "A Canticle For Leibowitz" by Walter M. Miller, Jr. Also Sience Fiction of the highest calibre.
