California A Novel By Lepucki, Edan Book - 2014 | First edition

Absolutely horrendous. The author obviously knows _nothing_ about the area she sets her story in, nor about wilderness survival. She doesn't even try to provide an explanation for pivotal background events (that is, why society has fallen apart). She has no political or social points to make. The writing in places is quite awkward as she tries way too hard to come up with original analogies and descriptions. And her central character is dumb as a box of rocks.
