The Dog Stars by Peter Heller


Reviewed by Todd Stoffer, NCSU Libraries Fellow


The Dog Stars at its heart is a post-apocalyptic survival story. What I enjoyed most about this novel is how different it was from other stories in this this genre. It is remarkably light and heartwarming. While the world has fallen apart the main character and narrator, Hig, remains hopeful throughout the book. It also is set in my home state of Colorado which I enjoyed
