I enjoy apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic type stories, especially with a good SciFi bent. This looked like it was going to fit the bill, and didn’t disappoint. The author took a slightly different tactic than many, with a lot of emphasis on the failing governments of the world and how those failings play into the efforts to save some of the human race.

There is less "technical details" and more "people" details, with good characterizations and dialog. At times I wished there was a bit more background and detail, but I like a rather "deep" book at times that might be boring to many.

The pacing was good, with enough suspense to make me keep turning the pages (I stayed up past my bedtime to finish it).

Note that I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.
