Waiting Out Winter

Waiting Out Winter - Kelli Owen Waiting Out Winter reminded me of Shute's "On the Beach" which is a masterpiece (perhaps THE masterpiece?) of the quiet apocalypse. As the afterward points out (in chilling fashion), our lives do indeed hang on threads that can be severed when we play with science like a child with a toy. Entirely plausible. Chillingly realistic.

My only complaint is that I feel that this book only touched on areas that could have been explored, and ended a bit too quickly.
