Z for Zachariah
  1. 10
    Støvets børn af Louise Lawrence (bookel)
  2. 10
    The City of Ember af Jeanne DuPrau (atimco)
    atimco: Z for Zachariah treats the same basic theme — the destruction of earth and what the characters must do to survive — but O'Brien's book is much more sophisticated. It's probably not the greatest for young readers, but an adult will find much to enjoy here.
  3. 10
    Empty World af John Christopher (cmwilson101)
    cmwilson101: Both of these books question how picky one can be about choosing who to spend time with in vastly empty worlds.

    The Compound af S.A. Bodeen (meggyweg)
  5. 10
    The Dead and the Gone af Susan Beth Pfeffer (lalawe)
    lalawe: The same basic apocalyptic theme and young adult characters, but I felt that Pfeffer's characters were more well-rounded.

    Phoenix Rising af Karen Hesse (meggyweg)

"Ann soon realizes there may be worse things than being the last person on Earth."

Yah. Does she ever!!! Unfortunately, I can't put any comments here because it would be totally spoilers all the way. All I can say is that, even though I had already watched the Margot Robbie movie, the book had me on the edge of my seat the entire way and kept my mind off the early stages of COVID Shot #2 hell.

I can also say that I love that this book is written so that we are reading pages of Ann's diary.

Great book. Going on my Favorites shelf. ( )

I remember my English teacher in sixth or seventh grade recommending this book, but for whatever reason, I didn’t read it. Something about her synopsis stuck with me, though, and I picked it up from a “free books” cart at the school where I used to work. Several years later, I finally got around to reading it.

I regret that I didn’t read this as a teenager. I think the themes of a girl’s no-nonsense resourcefulness against an onslaught of male violence would have resonated with me then, and I’ve always liked stories of post-apocalyptic survival. It was really good, and I want to know more about Ann’s life—however long or short it was—after she left the valley.

The storytelling itself is kind of weird and dated at times (the part near the beginning where she fantasizes about marrying Loomis and having his children had me rolling my eyes a little, but I get that she’d been alone for a while and it’s natural for her to want that, considering her life before the war) but I liked the contrasts of how much Ann cares about the valley and her farm versus Loomis seeing it only as a series of resources to be extracted. It was laid on pretty thick, but it worked.

I also knew how it ended before I finished the book, and was gearing up to be disappointed, but the execution was much more satisfying than I thought it would be. “You didn’t even thank me for taking care of you when you were sick”—you tell him, Ann! ( )

fantastic post-apocalyptic story told from a girls point of view. She is braver than I imagine I might be in her situation. Its at times terrifying and bleak but a solid read. ( )

Isn't it funny how men can show patience with a dog, but not a girl. ( )

This is a marvelous book. It is told in the first-person journal of Ann Burden, a 15 year old who survived a nuclear holocaust on her farm, protected by a valley. The book chronicles the arrival of another survivor, Mr. Loomis, who Ann welcomes and even saves from radiation poisoning. But Loomis has a dark past that is slowly -- and terrifyingly -- revealed.

In its quiet, deliberate way, the book builds to a riveting conclusion. The details are spare, but effective; the character of Ann is utterly convincing. I found nothing to distract me from the fictional dream of the narrative. A tour de force. Ann is Katniss in [b:The Hunger Games|2767052|The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)|Suzanne Collins|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1337857402s/2767052.jpg|2792775] without the swagger (and mercifully, without the romantic magnets of Peeta and Gale). She is as resourceful as Mattie Ross of [b:True Grit|257845|True Grit|Charles Portis|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328027080s/257845.jpg|1320617] (though less funny, not in a bad way). She makes terrible mistakes, just as a 15 year old would. Then she recovers, in just the way a 15 year old would.

In normal times, she would be a good though not great student. She isn't beautiful or particularly athletic. She is competent, built to be a farm girl. That is one of the lovely things about her as a heroine. She is utterly ordinary, yet she manages to become a hero.

The writing is never lyrical or showy. It is workmanlike, like Ann. Yet it is muscular and spare, able to evoke the place with great economy. The style fits her precisely. ( )

"I put the tray down in front of him and he just stared at it. 'Amazing,' he said. He just whispered it. 'What?' I said. 'This. Fresh eggs. Toast. Coffee. This valley. You, all by yourself. You are all by yourself?'"
