A stranger arrives one day, causing some paranoid curiosity among the five as they had not seen another live soul, not human anyway, in a very long time. He tells the group that there is a place, a bar where they can all be safe and where the beer never runs out. I know, this sounds like it might be a humorous plot but it's not, all eventually makes sense. The stranger calls himself Michael, but admits that's just his name for today. He meets with each of the group and gives them the same warning about getting out of the manor. With much trepidation, the group sets out on the bizarre quest, through a world they no longer recognize, to find the Holy Grail of pubs.
Bar None is a strange book that doesn't give up its secrets too easily. It's told in the first person which I've never been crazy about but Lebbon makes it work here, due in part to the main character's name never being revealed. Bar None is dark and dreary...nature has reclaimed the world quickly. At under 200 pages it's a short read, somewhat slow in parts but Lebbon manages to keep the readers attention with the quirky world he's fashioned.
This is post apocalyptic book about 5 strangers holed up in a pub in England. They are visited by a stranger named Michael who warns them to leave and find another pub far way in Cornwall. It's called Bar None, which is also the name of the book.
It is a not an intellectual read that will cause you to question your moral beliefs or faith. It's not a great, thought provoking toothsome book like The Road by Cormac McCarthy. It *is* an enjoyable, easy read that you can probably finish in a weekend.
I recommend that you enjoy it from your local library.

This book was terrible. The last half of the book was unorganized and not fully fleshed out.
