David Storm is a normal boy living in a not so normal world. After nuclear fallout from an unknown war David lives in the archaic far-future. The town Waknuk is governed by his father Joseph, a very religious pasture who hates anything that goes against the (their version of the) Bible. Because of the nuclear waste there are plenty of people who are born with deformities they're either cast out into the fringes or sacrificially killed. I wouldn't recommend this novel to anyone as it's not one for the light hearted and the characters don't do much. This novel is full of religious themes, and references to the Cold War, which was written in 1955. This book can be very depressing at times with all the death and cruelty that's present in the world. @Subsub of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
