Suggestions

Post by Proverbs2712 » Thu Feb 07, 2019 6:40 pm

Hi all, it may have been asked before, apologies. Can anyone give me literature suggestions for UK based prepping/eotwawki novels please. I would rather more realistic story lines- not zombie/aliens etc. My imagination may stretch to EMP though.

The Death Of Grass by John Christopher.
In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life: It goes on.

Robert Frost.

Snow by Ryan Clifford (four books - they tail off rather a lot, but the first two are pretty good).

UK Dark 1 2 and 3.

All the John Wyndham books - Day of the Triffids, The Kraken Wakes, etc. Oldies, but goodies.

Maybe...... "The Knowledge. How to rebuild our world after an apocalypse" Lewis Dartnell

An interesting and [practical?] read.

Just about to start John Lancaster's "The Wall"

Will let you know next week.

Also "A Wrinkle in the Skin" by John Christopher. Another old one ..... takes me back to my youth when I first read it.

Thanks for that suggestion. I just read the blurb, and it sounds just what I am after.

Plus IS there an end? Since we are all still here ;)
One sure sign of the decline of a civilisation is the inability to reproduce the technological achievments of its past

Fair point. :lol:
Plenty scope for a sequel though and if you get in first.... I hear there's money to be made. :)
