“Suspending belief for these crazy events was very easy to do, the story is well told. However, the characters came off as slightly unrealistic in their dialogue. Even taking into consideration the time period this was written, it was a little over the top. I almost expected heaving bosoms to come into play, in some of the "romantic" interludes. Not to mention Tony is super great, even though he really has no purpose in any new Garden of Eden, aside from being a statuesque, and all around swell guy. It did seem a little kooky that the countries of the world separated, rather than united, when faced with annihilation, but of course, America did come out on top. Dated, yes, but great book, overall.”
