My Top Five Post Apocalyptic Picks
I love a good Post Apocalyptic novel, I prefer them to the Dystopia that Kath so adores purely because humanity’s insistence that they cannot survive without some form of political infrastructure drives me scatty. Give me a good Super Volcano End of the World trek to find the last Twinkie and I am in seventh heaven.
The first ever PA novel I read is a book I am still searching for; it was a sci fi novel written (probably) in the fifties and it begins with a group of people climbing into a gyroscopic sphere, which is on a lake (I think) in order to ride out the imminent meteor strike that threatens to wipe out all living things. I’ve never been able to find out who wrote it or what the title was but if I could, that would be in top spot as it is the book that began my love affair with the End of the World genre. In its absence, these are my top five Post Apocalyptic picks.
