Malorie, a young mother of two children known simply as Boy and Girl, is a survivor living in a postapocalyptic world, raising her children to use all their senses, especially their listening skills, as sight is not an option here. I felt quite invested in her well-being, especially after learning her backstory. Until one day, it was no longer outside. The Cold War brough about the very real fear of a Nuclear Holocaust, when the possibility of nuclear powers annihilating one another and the world with them seemed very real.
With a dystopian world so frightening because of its many unknowns, the book struck a chord with readers and resulted in a significant success for HarperCollins.
