User Reviews 18 September by peterp — See all my reviews "It's about Maybe that's why we're here Just to start again. The endless series of disaster scenarios doesn't bode well.
Similarly, "Z for Zachariah". You won't get a real explanation about the incident that led to a general extermination of our society. Reference is made to radioactivity and emerging nausea caused by polluted water.
From this you can deduce that there might have been a nuclear war or accident in the past. But otherwise it is pure guesswork. It all started in an interesting way.
A sober story with a sole survivor in a fertile valley a "Garden of Z for zacharia as it werethat was spared from the global holocaust one way or another.
