The Dog Stars by Peter Heller
I loved this book. It is zombie-like dystopian- the struggle for survival, fighting over scarce resources and the thread of mindless violence.
There’s also a dog (good!) and a Cessna – what is it with Cessnas and apocalyptic fiction? They’ve been featuring in at least 4 books I’ve read so far – maybe I should get one? Never mind, it is an outstanding good read! It had me in tears…
