If you like post-apocalyptic stories, try California. Not for all, since it isn't in-your-face survival, but rather the emotional and spiritual side of trying to survive after civilization is gone. Thought-provoking for the serious post-apocalyptic fan, and now on my list of read-agains. Don't we all keep secrets like Frida and Cal, wanting to do the right thing but sometimes settling for safety instead? Really intriguing themes.
