Ashfall - Mike Mullin

Off to a really good start. I like Alex (the MC), he seems a good lens through which to view this story. I like that he's clearly "a good person," but isn't a Gary Stu or good to the point of stupidity. That said, every time he describes drinking half of a bottle of water I think "what are you DOING?!?! Conserve. Conserve!!!!!" heh.
