I stand corrected on my minor quibbles. Even then, they don't detract from the book. In all honesty, I think it's a lot more fun because it doesn't have ghouls, or raiders, or crazy mutated animals, or oppressive governments, or whatever other tropes you can think of. Those things are all cool ideas, but they're over used and often not always that well executed. When one of your biggest sources of conflicts in the novel is a community's overall lax attitude, it's pretty refreshing.
