Publisher Description

Hig somehow survived the flu pandemic that killed everyone he knows. Now his wife is gone, his friends are dead, and he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, Jasper, and a mercurial, gun-toting misanthrope named Bangley.
 
But when a random transmission beams through the radio of his 1956 Cessna, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life exists outside their tightly controlled perimeter. Risking everything, he flies past his point of no return and follows its static-broken trail, only to find something that is both better and worse than anything he could ever hope for.

The ebook edition contains a reading group guide.

The Dog Stars

Loved it. An engrossing, quick, satisfying read for those seeking pure escapism.

OK

Read half the book before the story became interesting. The introduction of new characters was contrived and formulaic, but the plot line improves halfway through and the writer provides some interesting insights.
