Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Life as We Knew It

This book was well written and very horrifying. Almost every time I marked my place and put it down (and even some times in the middle of a sentence) I never wanted to keep reading it. You get sucked in and lost in the feeling of reading a very good book, but at the same time it caused you to disappear SO much that you actually could picture it as reality. Seemed like an actual accounting of a real event that could possibly happen. Or even happen from another natural event. No monsters, aliens, Zombies, Islamic extremists, or Mayan calendars were needed to make it truly horrifying and visceral. I kept trying to think of a way back to normal for the characters, but the event that happened was just too solid and irreparable.

I've read 'The Impaler', also by this author, and I could not wait to get my hands on this one. It's just as gory and good. Sort of the "same theme, different killer" type thing, but the themes in both of these books is dastardly fun.
