It's the End of the World Challenge


Oh no! A challenge about one of my most favorite genres! I choose NOT to resist :)

Name: It's The End Of The World II
Host: Me, Becky (of Becky's Book Reviews)
Dates: March 10, 2009 - October 9, 2009
Books Required: at least four

Read at least four books about "the end of the world." This includes both apocalyptic fiction and post-apocalyptic fiction. There is quite a bit of overlap with dystopic fiction as well. The point being something--be it coming from within or without, natural or unnatural--has changed civilization, society, humanity to such a degree that it radically differs from "life as we now know it." (Aliens, evil governments, war, plague, natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, hurricanes, depletion of resources, genetic manipulation, etc.)

my four:
1. Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
2. Unwind by Neal Shusterman
3. Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank
4. The Chrysalids by John Wyndham

Wahoo! I'm stoked!

Wow, you find the best challenges! I am glad you like this genre. Have you ever read "The Parable of the Sower?"

hilarie - I haven't read that one - is it good?

It's been a long time, at least five years, but I do remember liking it and I have some vague memories of the story line. I think it actually ended up being a trilogy but I never got around to reading the second and third books. Maybe I'll pick it up again.
