you interested in the destruction of the Earth by nuclear bombs, plague,
natural disaster, aliens or other reason? Are you searching for some
post-apocalyptic novels? Below are some great post apocalyptic novels. Have a
look and get the best one for yourself.
Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter Miller Jr.
One of the most intriguing Post-Apocalyptic novels, A Canticle for Leibowitz
was Miller’s only book written during his lifetime. Society has fallen after a
nuclear war. The book follows a catholic sect, the Albertian Order of St.
Leibowitz, the Engineer, as they try to preserve the sanctified documents left
behind in a prehistoric fallout shelter. The book tries to examine the conflict
between religious belief and scientific thought as society rebuilds itself over
thousands of years.
Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank
Published in 1959, Alas, Babylon was produced at the height of the Cold War
between the US and the Soviet Union, when a nuclear destruction appeared
looming. One town in Florida is spared as the nuclear wars completely destroy
much of mankind, leaving the survivors to stay together and face the common,
unknown future. Frank’s novel was one of the first to talk about the
ramifications of the arms race, an early example of a book that places
mankind’s fate in its own hands. Technology, which was long seen as a savior of
mankind in science fiction, was seen as a tool to be misused by the hands of
the human beings.
The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughn
A celebrated graphic book, the Last Man takes on a new aspect of a
post-apocalyptic world when one man survives a universal disease that leaves
only women as the survivors of the occurrence. Civilization plunges into chaos
in the ensuing shock, and pains to rebuild in a new, matriarchal civilization
ensue. Brian’s comic examines gender roles and reconstruction in the face of
nearly certain extinction.
Dream Caster by Najeev Raj Nadarajah
Dream Caster is a young adult fantasy. Weaver, the protagonist, is orphaned and under the care of an ill-mannered man called Ruben. He has only one goal, to become a guard in his village. In one night, he gets the position and within a short time loses everything, his family, home and friends. This post-apocalyptic novel is very captivating.
World Without Us by Alan Weisman
This novel is not quite fictional. What happens when mankind suddenly vanish? Alan’s non-fiction novel about human infrastructure does
not dwell on how mankind vanish, but just that they do, and once humans are all
gone, what happens to all of their stuff? This novel is an eye opening look at
just the extent of impact human have on the society, and represents a great
primer for any person who wants to write post-apocalyptic novels. The buildings
will crumble, and Alan takes readers out days, weeks and years, drawing upon
places around the world where human actually have left: such as Cyprus and
These are some of the best post-apocalyptic novels any reader who is a fun of
this genre should read.
