This is one of the most heartbreaking and beautifully written stories that have ever been written. It is a post apocalyptic book about single man's struggle to stay alive in a world that has been run over by vampires. It is not a horror-story in the traditional sense, it is also not a vampire story in traditional sense. This is a story that explores one of the most tragic emotions any human can be asked to face: namely that of loneliness. Nothing that I write could ever give true praise to this book, nothing I say can do it justice. But what I can say is that you owe it to yourself to read it, if you haven't done so already.
