About the Author:

Robert C. O’Brien was born in Brooklyn, New York. He attended Williams College and graduated from the University of Rochester. He was a writer and editor for Newsweek, National Geographic, and other publications. He lived in New York City and then in Washington, DC, with his wife and four children. Z for Zachariah—which is now a major motion picture starring Margot Robbie, Chris Pine, and Chiwetel Ejiofor—was completed by his wife and daughter, with the help of his notes, after his death in 1973. He is also the author of Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH and The Silver Crown.

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.
