Z for Zachariah

Ann Burden is sixteen years old and completely alone. The world as she once knew it is gone, ravaged by a nuclear war that has taken everyone from her. For the past year, she has lived in a remote valley with no evidence of any other survivors.

But the smoke from a distant campfire shatters Ann's solitude. Someone else is still alive and making his way toward the valley. Who is this man? What does he want? Can he be trusted? Both excited and terrified, Ann soon realizes there may be worse things than being the last person on Earth.

    It always makes me happy seeing that this group is still doing so damn well! Rachel, thanks for the ride, everyone else, thanks as always, Elena if you get this give me suggestions for where to go in Russia!

      Eric, sounds like your Russian friends are taking good care of you in that regard; Samara and St. Petersburg sound like great places to visit; makes me wish I was going there myself as I'll be primarily staying within Moscow :) As far as Moscow, besides obvious tourist destinations, I would check out Patriarshy Prudy (setting for Bulgakov's Master and Margarita), Gorky Park (all remade in European style), Alexander Garden, Neskuchny Garden, and perhaps one of the estate museums such as Kolomenskoe or Tsaritsyno.

      Thank you so much! I'm taking as many bits of information as I can, but didn't have a chance to ask while at the bar since the conversation was elsewhere and cause it was kinda loud in there. Anyways, much appreciated!

    Thanks for a great first meetup for me! Who knew cake baking knowledge would have served me so well. :-)

    Can't make it again, I just got engaged and the fam is in an uproar (in a good way).

    I'll add to the conversation here that Ann was smart, resourceful, capable, but PAINFULLY naive. RIP Faro, really broke my heart.

    P.S. Who knew you could make a whole birthday cake in a wood fire oven?

    P.P.S. Do you think Mr. Loomis took care of the farm?

      Congratulations! Tina says it is possible to cook a birthday cake in a wood burning oven. It would just be a little crispy burnt on the bottom.

      Speaking of painful books that we've done in this group, Into The Forest is being made into a movie with Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood. Why?!?

      Haha. I thought this one was good. It's being made into a movie as well btw!
