“I thought "The Dog Stars" was very good. While I haven't read much "post-apocalyptic world" fiction, I liked the way the author gives readers a feel of stark broken/emptiness in a fictitious (but possible) setting. Although I must add that at times in sections where the author uses choppy, journal-like writing, I didn't think I could bare reading any further without losing my mind. But with the introduction of new characters and twist in writing style, the story flowed well. I especially liked the ending because it leaves readers with the sense that hope is not completely lost, an unexpected way to round off the final events.
I recommend this as an adult novel that both men & women will enjoy reading.”
