The narrator was acceptable. The story was pretty good, however grew a little tired of the excess Catholicism. Perhaps the author felt this was needed to build the main characters. The actions of the characters left that hollow if this was the case.

They are the only ones left in the whole appartment building, and they nearly starve to death, when there are dozens abandoned apartments possibly full of food right there. Ok, they have metal doors, but windows are glass, walls are drywall (most likely)! Were there balconies to climb over possibly? C'mon!
Also, the city is full of chunky rats feeding on all the corpses, but no one even considers catching them for a hearty stew. Ew, they literally would rather die. I mean if it's life or death situation, rat stew sounds pretty damn good!
Electricity is super unreliable - let's risk and take the elevator! What?! Bri doesn't come back - they don't think to check the elevator, find her there dead few days later. After grieving over her and settling her dead body to rest, they TAKE THE ELEVATOR back up! Are you kidding me? Didn't you learn?
And the lack of trouble in NYC was hard to believe. It's not the safest place on a good day, but in time of apocolypsis - there is barely any, main character faces no shooting, no looting, no fights. Mighty peaceful.
I borrowed the first book "Life as We Knew It" from my University library. I read it every chance I got and finished it two weeks. Loved it. This one is no exception. More familiarity to what's going to happen really made me wonder if it's gonna be the same this time. I kept on guessing but of course there are always unexpected events. Sadness, happiness, uncertainty, whatever it is we're facing. Humanity will survive. Because life must go on!
