Alas BabylonAlas Babylon Those fateful words heralded the end When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States a thousand years of civ This book was published in 1959 and it feels like it every step of the way The plot is compelling enough but the writing is incredibly wooden I actually laughed out loud at some of the passages and not in a nice way The author drags us through 100 pages of rising action which is annoying because it adds nothing to the plot and we all know the bomb is going to hit before we even read the blurb on the back cover The racism and sexism are also pretty terrible Even after the freakin' nuclear holocaust the Negroes are doing all the housework When the electricity goes out and they need to cook all the meat in the freezer they can't decide whether to throw a mixed party People The world just ended and you can't decide whether or not to let black people come to your BB Also this The he learned about women the there was to learn except that he had learned this they needed a man around First of all find a synonym for learn please Second this was after the aforesaid male practically threw up at the sight of blood ran out of the room and one of the women had to take care of the injury We may need you buddy after all no electricity for vibrators in this grim future but you need us too If you're thinking of reading this book check out The Road instead Same idea but the execution is about 1000x superior
