WOW, what can I say about Earth Abides. This will be the first science fiction book that I have read unpurpose. I find myself really enjoying it. Actually, I find that when I am not reading it I can not wait to get back at it. It is definatley keeping my attention, and I even sometimes wish that I were one of the characters. I know, pretty cool huh??? I am happily surprised that this book is having that effect on me. Although not quite finished yet, I am near the ending.
