Hello world!

Welcome to the post-apocalypse community - your place to discuss post-apocalyptic movies, TV shows, books, comics, short stories, etc ... .

To start us off, how about the following question: What post-apocalyptic book have you read/movie have you seen/... recently?

Me, I've just finished re-re-re-reading Margaret Atwood's Oryx & Crake, and I am still very fond of it and can recommend it as a good PA book.

Right now I'm in love with The Walking Dead comic. Oops granted it's not a book.

SO, I recently tried reading S.M Sterling's Emberverse Series. The first book was good but it really just went down hill after that. Which really disappointed me since I really loved that first book.

I've started the second Emberverse three times and each time I fail desperately at getting by. I'm disappointed to hear that the rest are rubbish.

It started off so wonderfully then in the second book, it just gets WEIRD and bad!ficy. I gave up half way through and ended up reading the whole summery on wiki, oddly? It gets WORSE.

Had that same problem several times myself.

Recently? Not much, I'm afraid, but I keep meaning to go back to S.M. Stirling's Dies the Fire...

Wait, that's what [personal profile] gwen just said. Ack!

I just wanted to add that I also read Oryx and Crake earlier this year, and it's one of my favorites now. Atwood is so amazing with her insights on human society.
