Z FOR ZACHARIAH is an intense, heart-pounding read. From the moment Ann first sees smoke rising from beyond the valley, each development wrenches her further and further from the life she's adjusted to--seemingly for good, and then with terrible consequences. The pacing is perfect, and with the story being told through Ann's journal entries, every event feels immediate. The personal details and unflinching descriptions of life after a nuclear war make the story even more gripping. As the tension escalates, readers will find it incredibly hard to put the book down before they discover Ann's ultimate fate. While the story leaves this somewhat open-ended, Ann's ultimate victory will make them cheer.
Ann is a likable narrator, with a natural voice and a well-developed personality. It's easy to sympathize with her based on her situation alone, but she is all the more admirable for refusing to give up even in the most desperate circumstances. She deals with her problems with intelligence and courage, but still has those moments of carelessness and fear that make her human. Readers will be on her side from the beginning, even as they struggle to imagine how they would feel in her place. Though her final triumph involves some loss, it's clear Ann will persevere and find a way to survive and be happy, which makes the ending satisfying.
Z FOR ZACHARIAH is a story that will haunt readers long after they've put down the book. It shows both the good and the bad that can emerge from human nature in the face of catastrophe, and gives hope that even in the worst situations, there are those who will remain strong.

With just these two characters in the novel the narrative feels spare and claustrophobic. The intensity gathers as the sinister character of Mr Loomis begins to take form. Ann is a highly resourceful, generous girl of only sixteen. Her patience and kindness quite remarkable considering the situation. Like an angel really. Loomis, on the other hand, seems deranged and monomaniacal. But cleverly out of focus. We never quite get to know him, only really Ann's impressions.
It's a subtle, haunting story - a parable really about the good and evil forces of humanity.
The novel is an excellent, simple story written as a diary by a teenage girl and her discovery of a visitor to the valley she lives in as a survivor of a nuclear holocaust. The Hollywood film destroys what makes the book great by adding a third character and changing the whole dynamic of the original story into a predictable and sordid love triangle.
