I feel like I have been on a whirlwind ride into this post apocalyptic world created by Benny Lawrence. I don't usually read much speculative fiction but if this genre is always this entertaining then I have been missing out on some terrific reads.

Rabbits of the Apocalypse grabs you from the opening chapters. The setting in the Twenty Third century is easy to imagine. Think Mad Max with lesbians in the leading roles instead of Mel Gibson (thank god). Benny's humour comes through in the witty dia

Really amazing book. Full of wit and humor...albeit a little dark. But really really worth the read!
Great characters that are well developed. An interesting plot with nice twists and an angst filled romance! It doesn't get much better!

In a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by drought, disease and radiation mutated humans (better known as 'Naturals'), Casey Prentice is just trying to get by from day to day. She lives in a cramped little apartment in the town of Lafontaine with her sister, Emily, her sister's latest boyfriend and her deranged sidekick, Malice. One night the town seems to be under attack from what the residents mistakenly believe to be aliens. It turns out to be much worse. The Anastasian League has taken

Shelves: dystopian
Casey, my kind of heroine. With a sense of humor so black it makes a black hole shine, and so completely and utterly cinical and sarcastic, her words are so sharp they are able to split atoms.

In the 23rd century, when life has gone to all to hell and it's survival of the fittest, Casey makes do in an out of the way settlement with the odd job here and there and looking out for her sister Emily. She has done and seen it all during a trek through the wildernis with her trusty sidekick Malice, and

I bought this book because I discovered the author through „Shell Games“, which I loved. While the setting couldn’t have been more different, the characters in „Rabbits of the Apocalypse“ were just as 3-dimensional, the narrator and dialogues just as funny and the plot just as well thought-through.

Power, control, trust and deep feelings are also themes of this book. And in between laughing out loud and enjoying the dystopian atmosphere, I found myself wondering what the heck this book really wa

Casey Prentice finds herself in a bind. That is, more of a bind than normal; she is normally stuck in a tin-pot town surrounded on all sides by a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Her insane family shares this hellish landscape wit her - a younger sister named Emily (who comes part and parcel with a succession of poofy-haired boyfriends) and her comrade, the aptly named "Malice" Hiroyama. The bind is that into this lawless world there are people who yearn for what once was, and they're willing to brut ...more
Rabbits of the Apocalypse is a post-apocalyptic story that takes place in a world where nuclear radiation has permanently changed the world - there is no unifying government or military anywhere, the ocean is warm, it no longer rains, and some people are born with mutations ranging from third eyes to supernatural powers. The book follows Casey, a nihilistic woman trying to survive (and get laid) alongside her best friend and her sister as their town is laid siege to by a cult seeking to fix the ...more
The combination of grim and funny is pretty challenging to pull off, but Lawrence does a really nice job in this quirky lesbian postapocalyptic science fiction novel. The characters are relatable and diverse, the world-building is very well done and the plot kept me engaged. I'm hoping she opts to write a sequel to this because I'd like to see more.

I love post-apocalyptic stories, but I am achingly tired of depressing slices of survivalist life where everyone is sad and dies in the end. I didn't realize how goofily-comedic this book was when I bought it, but boy was it a breath of fresh air.

I laughed so hard at certain things in the story that my roommate was convinced there was something wrong with me. It was witty, well written, and bound together with a strong and entertaining voice. Though the tone was humorously light in the face of g

If Benny Lawrence has a knack for anything, it would be making me want to kiss her works and snap it in half at the same time. Kissing it while snapping it. French kiss. Full out, with tongue and everything. Yes, I'm very much channeling my inner Casey. I wanted to give this a 2, for no other reason than it make me angry. But the fact that it managed to get a rise outta me mean it's a good book, in a sense of "I want to punch something until it's a bloody pulp"good book.

Wow. That story was so close to perfection it's actually frightening.
Jessica Schember
Good read

I truly enjoy Benny Lawrence's writing style. Rabbits of the apocalypse does not disappoint. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a bit of dark humor, and imperfect love stories. If you don't laugh while reading this book; you're doing it wrong.

I was torn between a 4 and 5 Stars Rating, but decided to give 5 stars as I am loving the brillant humor and the writing (chapter 19 is One of my Favorites). The reason why I was tempted to rate "only" 4 stars was, that the pace of the story dramatically changes after the first major plot twist. For too many chapters there isn't so much going on with the story or character development. It is not before close to the end that it picks up it's perfect speed again. But other than that I totally love ...more

In her spare time, she writes books. She sometimes wears hats, ...more
