Book review: The Dog Stars

This book checks all the boxes for post-apocalypse survival stories:  sadness, horror at what the human race has become, remembering what you had before it all went to hell and realizing it was heaven, just enough mystery about what caused the end of civilization, personal choices in devastating moments.  Where The Dog Stars is very, very different (and why I highly recommend it) is in the way that he narrates the story from within his own mind. You are tapped into his stream of consciousness. Incomplete sentences. Feelings and emotions instead of phrases. Poetry. I loved it. Lots of action in this version of the apocalypse. And even though you have to suspend judgement on a few plot elements, it’s a terrific story.
