on book 9.

book 9 of 60: the dog stars by peter heller

date started: 2.3.2014
date completed: 2.12.2014

wow!  this one was a tough slog.  i wept.  i openly wept over this book. this may be the only book in recent years to ever move me in such a way.

it's post-apocalyptic, which speaks to my dark and twisty soul (and has apparently become a specialty of my academic career).  basically, i've read A LOT of post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction, and it takes A LOT to impress me in these genres.  this book pulls it off easily.

i don't want to reveal anything about the plot, because that would ruin it for everybody.  read this book. it's worth it.

probable next read:  maze runner by james dashner
