Reid I am always amazed when I find a post-apocalyptic book list without Riddley Walker on it! Perhaps Russell Hoban is just a well-kept secret in this country.


message 2: by Amy (last edited Apr 19, 2009 08:44AM) (new)

Amy Hmm ... some of these don't really fit the category. For example, The Handmaid's Tale is really dystopian literature and V for Vendetta is more of the story of a revolution. Granted, I'll still vote for them because they're great books.


message 3: by Richard (new)

Richard Actually, a lot of these don't fit. Whoever thinks 1984 is an apocalyptic book needs to read the word's definition. Many other.

I would concur. I would also say that, unless one has a more gloomy view of our present world than is truly warranted, any non-fiction book doesn't really belong.

Oh, I don't know. There are books that examine the pessimistic possibilities that don't require the reader to be gloomy, such as Our Final Hour: A Scientist's Warning by Martin J. Rees.

♥ Marlene♥ Wow I have read 19 of these books and 4 are on my TBR list. I think that I will add many more thanks to this list. I did vote for dystopian books as well.


♥ Marlene♥ I jut added Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts. Young adult but a very good read and definitely a book that belongs here.

do agree that 1984 is more a dystopian/utopian book. There is nothing apocalypse about it.
