Great thriller – review by Vasee (at Barnes and Noble) 

I started this book thinking it couldn’t possibly work. At least, not at the length it runs. But it truly does.
Though this kind of apocalyptic tale has been tackled plenty of times before, Suter makes it so personal that it’s difficult for a reader to stay at arm’s length. This is despite the main character only ever being referred to as “Alan”. It was exceptionally easy to place myself in the characters’ position. I felt keenly Alan’s waning resolve and his increasingly broadening acceptance of his situation.
I found Suter’s prose worked almost as a setting, too. This is a character with a simple goal and a stripped-bare existence. The prose is utilitarian, and it’s obviously a conscious decision of the author’s to present the story in this manner. On those occasions where utilitarianism gives way to sensation, the impact is enormous because of the intelligent use of contrast.
This is by no means an easy read. But it is difficult to stop once you’ve started.
