The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick

This guy has a very weird name, doesn't he?!

This book is set in the far future. It's about a giant earthquake that has destroyed most of the world and the only things left are the Urb (which is the remainder of the cities in one big loop) and in the middle of it is Eden, which is the only bit that resembles the countryside.

The hero is trying to save his sister from dying and, with the help of an old guy, he also tries to get books back - as no one reads books anymore.

This is one of those books where you don't exactly have a favourite bit, or a worst bit. It was just good to read.

I would probably read it again.

It also made me want to read more books by this author.
