Recommends it for: apocalypse junkies
Shelves: post-apocalyptic
Well done post-nuclear apocalypse set in London, beginning as the bomb falls, with a naive view of how nuclear war (and radiation specifically) works. It manages to evoke all the feelings that nuclear war should evoke though (mostly crushing despair).

There are religious undertones here, however, I'm not sure what it was that the author was trying to say with them.
