  • It's a trilogy called "The Dead Land"
    First one is called Golak.
    2nd, Resurrection.
    and 3rd, Godless.

    I found it pretty good.. It's about a post-apocalyptic world
    with only a few groups of humans left.

    The village in which the protagonist lives
    is tradition bound, and will tolerate no changes.

    But of course.. the protagonist is really creative
    and comes up with a lot of ideas that would improve
    the villages chance for survival.

    Eventually he grows tired of the village elders
    and escapes the village, to explore what's left
    of this post-apocalyptic world.

    Would I recommend it? Yes.

    • Yeah its a pretty difficult read, but i find its imagery and setting alluring lol, i mean its hell. I believe this literary work has shaped how many Christians today see it. I'm on Canto V right now which is describing the 2nd layer. a lot of the souls ended up here because they were lustful and/or glutinous in life.

      I have the dictionary and wikipedia open to help me understand a lot of the references and words used in it. :)

    • :) I bet it's worth while to read and experience.

  • The Road by Cormac McCarthy

    I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys post-apocalyptic literature. It's really sad and bleak, though.

  • Well I'm reading Persuasion by Jane Austen at the moment and I'm loving it :) she's so witty, I love how she portrays women too. They're the strong protagonists often which was rare to find in Victorian literature. It was her last ever book too, it was published late 1817 (although is dated 1818). So it's interesting for that reason too.

    • Poisonwood bible. whats that one about?

    • I would never be able to do the description justice... so this one is better.
      "a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it—from garden seeds to Scripture—is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

      The novel is set against one of the most dramatic political chronicles of the twentieth century: the Congo's fight for independence from Belgium, the murder of its first elected prime minister, the CIA coup to install his replacement, and the insidious progress of a world economic order that robs the fledgling African nation of its autonomy... etc."
