Review: The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Last year I read and loved the other book, Life as We Knew It. We had a great book club discussion about it and laughed our heads off pondering how long the current fat on our bodies would last us during a disaster!
So, this book is about the same disaster, (when an asteroid bumps in to the moon and knocks if off kilter) but from a different character's point of view. For some reason, I didn't like this one near as much as the first one. Maybe because the stories were so similar? Which is basically a family fighting to survive in the aftermath of this cosmic disaster. Maybe I didn't feel at all connected to the character this time around. Maybe it was just all too sad to take at the moment. I don't know, but I was glad to get through it.
This story was quite a bit more morbid than the other story too. Maybe I just couldn't deal with that either.
Anyway, for fans of the first one, I would still suggest that you check this one out. Maybe you'll end up liking it better!
