Cool, I might check it out. I'd say that it being a post-apocalypse genre book makes it lose some of it's originality, but then I realized that I'm clearly not bored of post-apocalypse in the slightest and am actively seeking out more of it.

Well. To be fair it's an old book, 1980s if I'm not mistaken. So give it credit where it's due, the post-apocalyptic scene hadn't played out so much back then. It was written at the height of the Cold War, so the setting was pretty relevant, as was the fear. I figured that given you said you love dystopia stories, it seemed relevant to your interests.

Cold War era, at the height of the tensions. The US decides to launch its nuclear arsenal, and the Soviets respond in kind. The whole world gets burned, and the aftermath results in a nuclear winter.

The story follows a great many different characters, and tells its narrative by showing their different points of view. Some of them never even meet, but their actions affect each other. You watch as they make their way through a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world where some people have taken to banding together to try reforming society, while others have gone mad and started killing everyone for sport, and others still have formed an army to take everything over.

The story is mostly about this post-apocalyptic survival, but it does have some religious and fantasy elements to it. I won't spoil how, but one of the ideas of the book is to show the true nature of Humankind, and their true faces.

Very good book. My favorite.
