Format: Kindle Edition
Sargent presents a dystopian world through the perspective of interweaving, alternating characters, roughly organized around the travels of a nomadic pair. She eschews the focus on the relationship between this pair (like McCarthy did in "The Road"), or the development of a sympathetic character for the reader to relate with. There is also no central mystery, or even much of a quest to a worthwhile goal. Instead, the narrative appears to meander from one troublesome situation to the next, each part presented in clear, spare prose. The lack of dramatic artifice lends the book a verisimilitude and a capacity to surprise that is rare for dystopian novels.

This is not one of the author's better works. I kept reading, hoping that either 1) something would happen of 2) I would start to like the main characters. Sadly, neither of those things occurred. Left me with a profound sense of "so?"
