Sixteen-year-old Ann Burden has been living on her own for a year, since the nuclear bombs turned everything surrounding her little valley into a wasteland, and her parents drove out to find other survivors... and never came back. Knowing she may be the only person left, Ann struggles with her loneliness and tends to the farm as best she can. But then a man comes over the hills in a protective suit and arrives in the valley. At first he provides Ann with welcome companionship, but as he recovers from a bout of radiation sickness, his actions become more sinister.

Z FOR ZACHARIAH is an intense, heart-pounding read. From the moment Ann first sees smoke rising from beyond the valley, each development wrenches her further and further from the life she's adjusted to--seemingly for good, and then with terrible consequences. The pacing is perfect, and with the story being told through Ann's journal entries, every event feels immediate. The personal details and unflinching descriptions of life after a nuclear war make the story even more gripping. As the tension escalates, readers will find it incredibly hard to put the book down before they discover Ann's ultimate fate. While the story leaves this somewhat open-ended, Ann's ultimate victory will make them cheer.

Ann is a likable narrator, with a natural voice and a well-developed personality. It's easy to sympathize with her based on her situation alone, but she is all the more admirable for refusing to give up even in the most desperate circumstances. She deals with her problems with intelligence and courage, but still has those moments of carelessness and fear that make her human. Readers will be on her side from the beginning, even as they struggle to imagine how they would feel in her place.

In a literary world where YA has come leaps and bounds (especially since I was a kid!), it is surprising to find a much older book within the genre that can compete with the great fiction that is out there right now. Z for Zachariah by Robert C. O'Brien is a really great post-apocalyptic novel that was written for the YA genre decades ago; it is a trailblazer as far as I am concerned!

The story begins with a girl named Ann Burden who has been left alone in a small valley on her parents farm to survive the aftermath of nuclear war. She is surviving well enough between the fresh food from the farm and the dry and canned goods at the local general store. When her parents, brother, and owners of the store left last fall to find other survivors and never returned, Ann knew she had to keep going as she had in order to survive.

Her lonely but peaceful existence was shattered, however, when she spotted a campfire coming her way through the barren, destroyed landscape. When the mysterious man in a big plastic suit enters the valley, she hides, afraid of what kind of man he is. When he impulsively jumps into a contaminated creek and becomes sick with radiation poisoning, however, Ann decides to abandon her hiding place in order to help him. But after she nurses him back to health, she realizes he is not happy to just share the valley with her- he wants it all, including Ann.

I have read a lot of post-apocalyptic fiction in the last 12 months, so it is hard to surprise me these days in this genre, but when the man gets better and starts actually hunting Ann, it was just so disturbing! The way it was written, the way he hunts her, and the sheer magnitude of being the last two alive in this second horror scenario, got to me! It was truly unnerving to see his calculation and deception as he ties up her dog to use for tracking her, locks the store where she is getting her supplies, and takes the keys to her tractor.

This was a really interesting story and quite easy to read with low vocabulary level and comprehension levels. But I don't think this would be a great story for middle schools students- it is just too creepy in a subtle way that gives you the shivers! It would be a GREAT book for an older student who has a low reading level but seeks mature reading material. Now I am going to have to stockpile a HAZMAT suit along with my canned goods, shelter, and ark! I have got to find some cheerier books!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good, fast paced story. Read in two sittings. 2 février 2015

Post apocalyptic or survival stories happen to be a favorite of mine. When I heard that there was a movie called Z for Zachariah coming out in 2015 that was post apocalyptic and that it was based on a book, I had to pick this up. I basically finished reading this in two sittings, being unable to put the book down. It was an easy, quick read and I really enjoyed it. I do have a couple things to point out though:

Towards the end of the book the character Loomis completely does a 180. Now, I understand that characters may change if they have been through something traumatic, or in this instance (spoiler) severe radiation poisoning, but it just didn't flow like I thought it should have, and I was a little taken off guard (focusing on the writing instead of the story). Come to find out, this book was never finished by O'Brien and instead had to be stitched together by his wife and daughter after his death. The flow may have seem disjointed because the author suddenly changed. This may also be why the ending seemed cut off - I was left with wanting more, but knowing that the author is no longer with us to complete a second book, I am mourning the loss of a story that was cut off too short.

Just a fantastic book because Ann Burden, out of any fictional character ever created, would be someone I'd choose to be my best friend. Selfless, godly, smart, wise... she is thrown in the worst possible situation and always comes out competently and strong. Love Ann!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Post-apocalyptic story into the life of the last person alive 26 septembre 2010
Par Stephanie Frost - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I read this for the first time in middle school. As a nostalgic gesture, I purchased the book again for light reading. The story is great, and really challenges the human reaction to nuclear war fallout and what it would mean to be the last person alive on earth. The story from a sixteen year old girl's perspective shows the maturity, strength, and inner determination that humans, regardless of age, race, or gender, have to survive and thrive when everything else is gone.

I gave it 4 stars because the ending has always been somewhat lacking. While I applaud O'Brien's wife and daughter for finishing his work posthumously, one can only wonder how the ending might have been different if this novel had been finished before his time was up.

When I was in the 7th grade my English teacher read this to the class in our downtime. We never finished it and I finally found the book again (it's hard to track down a book you don't remember the title too)!
If you like post apocalyptic type scenarios or coming of age stories this book is for you.
