it was amazing
Read from April 29 to May 03, 2010

A post-apocalypic novel set in England and written in the early 60s. I'm always so happy to know that what these writers foresaw for our present time has, by no means, come to pass. In Greybeard, an 'accident' (nuclear war) has made the entire population sterile, except for a few random people who give birth to children with major deformities. The entire population is aging, with little hope for the survival of mankind. The title character, Greybeard, is actually about my age, but is considered a youngster in his day. All in all, a really good and interesting read.
