vacation read #6. Interesting old school apocalypse. A comet rains "dust" on earth and disrupts the operation of all machinery. Death and disaster ensue. MC is a high school boy who is a bit of a Mary Sue (or Marty Stu, if you prefer,) who seems to always be the one with the innovative idea, in the right place at the right time, or rallying the troops when it appears all hope is lost.

Still, an interesting early entry in "end of the world as we know it" type sci-fi. ( )

Boy's sci fi adventure. Takes me back to my boyhood in the early 60s, but oh, how much we've lost! Or have I just gotten old?

The plot and story are straightforward; rather than dozens of subplots and characters, there's a handful of characters and a straight forward tale of the post-apocalyptic struggles of a small college town suffering through the end of civilization as they knew it. Still, it's a good story, well told, of the likely outcome of a major disruption to the modern world. ( )

I'm an avid SiFi reader, but I read YWSF in junior high and never forgot it. I remember reading it non-stop until I finished it. What fond memories. ( )
