American War by Omar El Akkad

What is the book about?

America & the world are post apocalypse of world illness. The UJA has been through Civil Wars.  We meet a girl in a refugee camp who wishes to go from the poor disease ridden south to the more secure affluent north. We get involved in the rebel’s story.

What was good about it?

Great set of a world gone crazy. Great main characters that were well developed.

Well thought out political & geographical world.

What didn’t you like? (if anything)

I would like a book two

Did it bring something positive to you?

It entertained me. That’s what I was looking for. Since it is a fictional story it did not change me or my point of view.

Would you recommend it to others? Why?

Sure, people who like ‘The Road’
