right up there with "earth abides".
Always on the lookout for a good post-apoc book. Is it at least better than the film?

In terms of this genre my favorite has been The Stand, followed by the majority of Alas, Babylon (the end was ham-handedly resolved in a matter of about 2 pages). Swan Song was good too, imo as well as Lucifer's Hammer. Read Earth Abides and didn't care for it so much, maybe because the protagonist was unlikeable.
