these are my favorites"
One Second After
One Second After
"my favorite post apoc. deals with e.m.p - electro-magnetic pulse - bombs that destroy all electroics and send you back into the dark ages pretty much as you fight to survive with no electronics of any kind."
X-Isle
X-Isle
"while it was intended for young readers, adults will enjoy as well. post-flood, a city trades w group of men who do deep-sea diving. keeps you guessing."
Oryx and Crake
Oryx and Crake
"amazing dystopian. one of my favorites. a plague bk. shows the current post-plague world and how it came to be through the survivor's memories."
The Year of the Flood
The Year of the Flood
"the sequel to oryx and crake and it's honestly as good as the first, if not better. a group of green "hippies" fights pre and post-apoc"
The Handmaid's Tale
The Handmaid's Tale
"another take from margaret atwood of dystopian where woman are having a harder time getting pregant and are forced to be breeders in a sense."
The Passage: A Novel (Book One of The Passage Trilogy)
The Passage: A Novel (Book One of The Passage Trilogy)
"one of my top favorite post-apocs. a vampire/zombie/wearwolf weird kinda mutant is the plague but it's again, not overwhelming. more so the story of various people all interlinked trying to survive in dystopian society. very long, like 800 pages but all worth it."
The Road (Movie Tie-in Edition 2009) (Vintage International)
The Road (Movie Tie-in Edition 2009) (Vintage International)
"the current poster child of the post-apoc since the movie came out. it is good but very gorey. if you cant handle cannibalism of all aged people, not the bk for you."
The Reapers Are the Angels: A Novel
The Reapers Are the Angels: A Novel
"i am not usually a zombie fan -sorry world war z - but this one is great. doesnt forcus too much on zombies, moreso on this young girls' survival. written in the same southern-style of speaking, a bit less educated (character not author) as the chaos walking series is). very beautiful."
The Pesthouse
The Pesthouse
"a romance in a post-apoc world. it is survival and while sometimes doesnt come across as post-apoc, it's an amazing read."
The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, 1)
The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, 1)
"intended for young readers but adults will love it and i'm not sure i'd let a younger reader get at this one til they were alittle more mature. dystopian where all the woman in a town are killed and just men live and every thought they think is able to be heard by everyone else."
The Ask and the Answer: Chaos Walking: Book Two
The Ask and the Answer: Chaos Walking: Book Two
"bk 2 after the knife of never letting go. not as good as the 1st but so are middle books."
Monsters of Men: Chaos Walking: Book Three
Monsters of Men: Chaos Walking: Book Three
"great wrap up to the chaos walking trilogy. just as good as the knife of never letting go."
The Last Book In The Universe
The Last Book In The Universe
"my first dystopian and will always hold a special place in my heart. deals with illiteracy and 1 person left who is a writer and a boy with seizures - i too have them so also another soft spot for me. for young readers but older readers will enjoy this quick read."
The Hunger Games (Book 1)
The Hunger Games (Book 1)
"a popular new young adult post-apoc for a reason. this book has a touch of gladiator verses lord of the flies. 2 children from each dystopian city are made to compete to the death in an arena. bk 1 of 3 and wow."
Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, Book 2)
Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, Book 2)
"bk 2 of hunger games. typical middle bk, leading up to the big end."
Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games)
Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games)
"good wrap up to series, not what i expected."
Shade's Children
Shade's Children
"my 2nd ever post-apoc read. for teens but it's definately mature reading. only adult left survived in a computer as children are harvested for body parts to put in battle robots and a group of kids try to survive. very touching"
The Day of the Triffids (20th Century Rediscoveries)
The Day of the Triffids (20th Century Rediscoveries)
"an oldy but a goody. everyone goes blind by a comet and then these killer plants try to eat everyone. not as corny as it sounds. : )"
Alas, Babylon
Alas, Babylon
"again, an oldy but a goody. neclear attack in florida and a towns fight to survive."
Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451: The Authorized Adaptation
Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451: The Authorized Adaptation
"while i did enjoy the bk i didnt like it as much as everyone seemed to think i would. it's a classic and deals w the destruction of literature."
1984
1984
"the all-time poster child of the post apoc. while i think there are much better ones out there, it's stil standard reading for our genre - like dracula is for vampire people. it's good but not as good as people make it sound. sorry people."
Flood
Flood
"good but long and oftentimes you feel youre reading a bio book. deals with the flooding of the world. i learned alot but it's defiantely not "fluff fun read" and it will not have you at the edge of your seat."
The Brief History of the Dead
The Brief History of the Dead
"a very interesting book about people dying and holding onto them as the world ends and people die and it's very odd but good. pretty crappy ending but still worth reading."
Armageddon Summer
Armageddon Summer
"a cult of crazy christians goes to a hill and decides the apocalypse is coming so they start trying to make their own world. very creepy cult book for a teen read."
