Good story line. Initially though it was slow going but then realized it was the author's intention. Thought provoking

stay with this oh-so passive protagonist; you will be rewarded... NOT for the faint-hearted (nor would any apocalyptic story be) I found myself reassessing my own ideas about being 'civilized' -about what is required to maintain or create a 'civilization'
