Last night I finished Life As We Knew It. And I must say it was pretty good. The entire book is written through journal entries of the main character. It think that's what made the book feel so real at times. It almost felt like the story was happening to me instead of being fiction. That could just be because in my sci-fi mind I'm always thinking of disasters in which I will have to live in a situation just like this one. (Hopefully not as long.) I would recommend picking this one up for a bit of entertaining reading. While I'm not sure the actual catastrophe would actually ever happen, the stories about the people were excellent.
