The Dog Stars by Peter Heller
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I really didn't know much about this book when I checked it out from the library website, but had heard it was quite popular. It is set in a post-apocalyptic world where most of the population has succumbed to a new strand of the flu. It follows the life of a pilot, and his co-pilot dog, as well as their somewhat sociopathic friend/fellow survivor. It was a compelling enough story that, even though it will not become one of my favorite, held my interest. Definitely worth reading.
