I'm not sure what I actually think of this book.
The bleak, apocalyptic landscape of this book is haunting and lush. The characters, in contrast, seemed hollow and contrived. I found them unbelievable, and difficult to identify with, beyond mild irritation and annoyance. Perhaps I missed some obvious clues as to an exact setting (not at all unlikely), but that it seemed set in some sort of future-set, almost feudal wasteland, made the narrator's character even more bizarre. His pre-war social standing seemed not to fit his actions and attitudes through the book, which made his character less authentic, more pathetic.
I really, really don't know. I like post-apocalyptic themed anything
, but I just don't know.
