Survival stories have always resonated with me, and this one did not disappoint. It's post-apocalyptic, thought-provoking, and feels eerily relevant in today's political climate though it was published in 1993. I lost track of the many instances of prescient ideas, including virtual reality headsets, a president promising to make the country great again, the discovery of exoplanets, rising sea levels and climate change. Some parts of the story are quite violently graphic, and it is not difficult at all to imagine how easily a once-powerful nation could slide in a similar, bleak direction (if we aren't already).
