"You can see the Chrysler building--my favorite" (149) I thought it was interesting that out of all the buildings in NYC he could have chosen as his favorite it was the Chrysler.
Maybe it was because it held happy memories of him and his family, which are all gone?
"After What Happened, money became useless" (152) After this quote, it goes on to explain the crisis they went through about how to trade and pay for things. How are you supposed to decide how much one thing is worth in value to something different when everyone has different things they need? I thought this was interesting because I never thought about what would happen when a situation like that would occur in an apocalypse.
"As the chains go taut, they rattle like snakes." (pg 183) I liked this quote because the simile that Jeff says really makes me think about the chains and how they sound like snakes, but at the same time, how they might not sound like snakes.
"Suddenly she starts breathing fast, like she's running a race. Then, a kind of sigh. Then, as lightly as a bird flying from a branch, she stops breathing." (269) Why you gotta do that? Why you gotta kill SeeThrough? Most importantly, why you gotta make it so poetic? So that it doesn't seem as cruel and wrong?
All in all, one sentence to sum up my feelings about the quote: why you gotta be so rude?
"The grown-ups are back" (373) This was a good way to end the book to get readers to read the sequel, as I really want the sequel to find out what happened, but at the same time, it's a bad ending, as I really want the sequel, but I'm pretty sure it's not out yet.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
