    ePUB Alas Babylon eBook ê ↠ salovehej.me ↠ alas mobile, babylon epub, Alas Babylon eBookThis book was published in 1959 and it feels like it every step of the way The plot is compelling enough but the writing is incredibly wooden I actually laughed out loud at some of the passages and not in a nice way The author drags us through 100 pages of rising action which is annoying because it adds nothing to the plot and we all know the bomb is going to hit before we even read the blurb on the back cover The racism and sexism are also pretty terrible Even after the freakin' nuclear holocaust the Negroes are doing all the housework When the electricity goes out and they need to cook all the meat in the freezer they can't decide whether to throw a mixed party People The world just ended and you can't decide whether or not to let black people come to your BB?

    ePUB Alas Babylon eBook ê ↠ salovehej.me ↠ alas mobile, babylon epub, Alas Babylon eBook45 to 50 stars I think the above pictures and uotes express a lot better than my words ever could what I would like to say in this review about the power and elouence of Pat Frank's 1959 story about the folly and danger of Nuclear war I can not imagine a better novel about the immediate after effects of a global nuclear war than what is presented hereTrue the fact that anyone is left alive after the war does tend to make the novel anachronistic But since a “war begins and everyone is dead” novel would last about 10 pages I am willing to forgive Frank’s optimism given that this novel was written at a time when most people believed a nuclear war could be survived However I do want to go on record and sayIT CAN’T The book tells the story of the lead up to and then aftermath of a preemptive nuclear strike by the USSR against the United States of Ame

    ePUB Alas Babylon eBook ê ↠ salovehej.me ↠ alas mobile, babylon epub, Alas Babylon eBookThis post apocalyptic cautionary tale was published in 1959 in the post Sputnik pre Cuban Blockade era when many Americans suspected we might be losing the Cold War arms race and that a nuclear holocaust was inevitable Author Frank was interested in exploring not only the no win outcome of a atomic war but also the utter lack of preparedness for such an event by the government and the general population There's not much in the way of character arcs or even a solid plot other than daily survival in the collapse of civilization as we know it but the story has staying power permeating and influencing many cultural touchstones
