Review: Life As We Knew It

Book: Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Genre: YA SF... sort of
Rating: A
Here's the book I read for one of my book groups this month. It's a book I'd never heard of until this past month, and then suddenly, I'm hearing about it all over the place. Funny how that happens, huh?
It's a story about the end of the world. When the moon is hit by a meteor, it throws it out of kilter, and lots of disasters start happening which cause life, as we knew it, to change drastically. The story follows one particular family and how they cope and survive. Among other things, (like the power of family and sacrifice and survival), it also presents very strong argument for planning ahead and storing food for emergencies!
So, yeah, I totally enjoyed it, even though it stressed me out a bit, just imagining going through something like this.


  1. It was very realistic, wasn't it!?! I think that's why we were so affected by it.

  2. Too funny..I just picked this up from the library today. I got the book for my boys. They want to read it. I am waiting on the audiobook to come in so I can put it on my iPod.

  3. It sounds very interesting; I think I'm going to add it to my TBR.

  4. It makes me want to raid the store for food storage. Great web site Kerri Sue
