It is the story of a world reeling from the effects of nuclear annihilation and fallout, a world where mutated humans and animals are the norm, and the scattered survivors take comfort from a disc jockey endlessly circling the globe in a broken-down satellite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from absolutely amazing book the book takes some time to get started but the tone and pacing is purposefully flat and slow paced building up to a interesting finale. the book follows the story of a group of people living in the fallout of a global catastrophe. There are many different themes and conflicts in the book. the main characters have very interesting arcs that test their morality and empathy in the new world. it's all framed in a very interesting way and in my opinion the strange pace actually helps the story reach it's climax in an appropriate way.
