The Dog Stars
The Dog Stars A Novel By Heller, Peter Audiobook CD - 2012

I am almost through with this as an audiobook and am enjoying the story much more than I thought I would. It's not your typical post-apocalypse plot: no zombies, no large-scale assaults, no roughing it in the big cities. "Hig" is a relatable and emotional character without losing his toughness, and as an animal lover I felt a strong connection due to his bond with his dog, Jasper. The setting in rural Colorado is also refreshing. If you are hesitant about reading apocalyptic fiction because of the stereotypes permeating the genre, give The Dog Stars a try. It might just change your mind!
