Z for Zachariah, Robert C. O'Brien
I am very surprised it has taken me this long to read this thing -- it is JUST my bag!
A few bites from the novel have inspired the film adaptation's premise, but they are very, very different. Both are great for discussion. I found:
- The book enthralling.
- The characters well-drawn.
- It was overall: well done.
- It pretty clean, all-round.
Again: It is so, so good to talk about.
