Audio Book Summary

Something terrible has finally happened. A nuclear holocaust has destroyed civilization. For one whole year, 16-year-old Ann Burden has lived alone on her family's farm, somehow sheltered from the radiation in the valley. As she hears the final radio station going off the air, she believes she is the only person left alive. But when Ann sees smoke from a faraway campfire, she knows there is at least one other survivor. Soon an incredible figure wearing a green suit and carrying an oxygen tank appears on the road. With the intruder in her valley, she makes a chilling discovery: there are worse things than being alone. Newbery Award-winning author Robert C. O'Brien won an Edgar Award for this suspense-filled science fiction tale of a young woman determined to survive on her own terms. Narrator Christina Moore places you on the scene with Ann in a strange world with an unknown future.

    I did not think I would love this book as much as I did - I am not a fan of the post-apocalyptic genre. But this story was written in the Cold War era and feels realistic and authentic. The plot is a carefully crafted tale of survival, hope and horror; it starts as a slow burn (but always super interesting) and revs up into something that’s quite edge-of-your-seat thrilling. Saying more would give the plot away; it unfolds in a way that makes you uncertain of its direction or ending. Quite fabulous! Written beautifully and with heart. This narrator is also one of the best I’ve ever listened to. She makes the 15/16 year old protagonist instantly likeable, a pragmatic, gutsy and positive spirited heroine. I could have stuck with her story for hours more. Highly recommend!

    I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I'm a fan of nuclear war fiction, and this was just the right dose of intrigue and drama. it wasn't predictable at all and it's a quick listen.
