American War creates as haunting a post-apocalyptic universe as Cormac McCarthy did in The Road, and as devastating a look at the fallout that national events have on an American family as Philip Roth did in The Plot Against America.
So sharply observed . . . hard to resist.
This is extremely good . . . Basically was hoping for my train to be delayed
This is an outstanding book – 1984 meets The Handmaid’s Tale – that feels closer to reality than it possibly should.
