I could tell as I was reading this that I was reading one of the truly great novels of the past 5 years....maybe more. In this I found a novel that captured me with the innocence of the first Harry Potter book, and then just lured me in through an increasing level of horror where I literally had to keep reading to find out if Kitness survives or not. This book represents one of the more original concepts of a post-war or apocalyptic America where the attitude of a government towards its people is nothing short of appalling, and the way Collins brings this view to the reader through the eyes of a cunning 16-year-old survivalist is something that everyone should experience. I'm anxious to see how they adapt this into the movie, and to dive into the sequels.
