Reading group: which post-apocalyptic novel should we read this month?
Many books have exploded, submerged and zombiefied humanity in fiction. With the world’s end feeling nigher than ever, help choose a tale of doom for November
This month on the reading group, I think we should face the darkness. Let’s confront our worst fears. Let’s talk about apocalyptic fiction.
I don’t even have to explain why total annihilation might be topical, do I? And that’s the bad news. It’s hard to be positive about the current state of world politics and the high potential for everything we know and love being snuffed out, after all. But, hey! Let’s try to be positive. The end of the world has inspired hundreds of incredible novels – long before Donald Trump brought the idea back into immediate fears.
