Is anyone out there?

Ann Burden is sixteen years old and completely alone. The world as she once knew it is gone, ravaged by a nuclear war that has taken everyone from her. For the past year, she has lived in a remote valley with no evidence of any other survivors.

But the smoke from a distant campfire shatters Ann's solitude. Someone else is still alive and making his way toward the valley. Who is this man? What does he want? Can he be trusted? Both excited and terrified, Ann soon realizes there may be worse things than being the last person on Earth.

About the Author:

Robert O'Brien was, in private life, Robert Conly, senior assistant editor of National Geographic Magazine where he worked for over twenty years. He wrote three books for children and one for adults and won the Newbery Medal for MRS FRISBY AND THE RATS OF NIMH, filmed as THE SECRETS OF NIMH. Robert O'Brien died in 1973.

From AudioFile:

Occasionally, a book is better in print than on tape, no matter how expert the reader. Moore's youthful, androgynous voice is perfect for the teenaged diarist in O'Brien's remarkable Doomsday novel. But the book, grimly fascinating on the page, reveals distracting weaknesses read aloud. Its formal prose (using no contractions) becomes awkward and stilted. And an important element--the narrator's gender is not revealed at first--is spoiled, not by the performance, but by the packaging; Christina Moore's name, and the cover illustration, give away the secret. Still, Moore's well-crafted performance and O'Brien's moving, suspenseful story go far to make up for these flaws. This is good for car trips--the plot will enthrall adults, as well as teens. S.P.
