Mauser3006 Posted May 31, 2015 Report Share Posted May 31, 2015 As this is a topic which interests me very much I think I have read almost all the mainstream fiction out there; a great deal of which is pretty awful, but there are some gems. Here is a selection of recommendations if it interests you. The Stand - Stephen King. An amazing book following the survivors of a flu epidemic. An easy fun read. The Road - Cormac McCarthy. A brutal look at a destroyed world. Won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 2007. Oryx and Crake - Margaret Atwood. Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2003. Set in the near future and spanning an apocalypse. One Second After - William R Forstchen. Following a failure of the grid. A brutally realistic take on what might occur in the days, weeks and months afterwards. All of these are great books in their own way. Has anyone else got any recommendations? I'm just finishing my current book. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
