And last book finished for the Tome Infinity and Beyond readathon! Lord, this one is a doozy. I‘ve either read it before or I‘ve seen the movie so I knew exactly how it would end but man, it‘s still brutal. I think it‘s definitely time to return to Wheel of Time. I‘ve been going hard on this post-apocalyptic books for this readathon. I need something a bit less morbidly depressing.

Martyn_J_Pass One of my faves but both movies were sooooooo depressing and it took the edge off the book when I got round to reading it. 4mo

Set in the 1960‘s (the near future when this was published) aftermath of a nuclear World War III, most of the globe has already died of radiation sickness. Being informed that they have only a few months to live, the survivors remaining in Australia set about the quiet business of waiting to die - while also caring for families, falling in love, and planting gardens. Folks seem to love or hate this book - I adored it while also being terrified.

Leftcoastzen One of my best friends favorites that I haven‘t read yet. 7mo
atla @Leftcoastzen oh, you must! It may be a classic, but it‘s not at all dense or unapproachable. The narrative draws the reader in immediately and doesn‘t let go. 7mo

It‘s #ARoadToNowhere, the lives of the people of Melbourne. They await the arrival of deadly radiation spreading towards them from the North, following a nuclear war a year previously. Each character deals with this truth differently. A heartbreaking story 💔

An essential read of the post-apocalyptic genre that I've not gotten around to reading, been meaning to read it for years but not gotten around to it and putting it off for other reads.

Anyway...

That's it for now..

A sad story set in the 1950‘s about the final days of the people in Melbourne who are waiting for the radiation poison to end their lives. The plot is simple but the effect is deep. I can‘t get enough of these kinds of stories, thinking about what I would do facing the same plight. Do you give up on life or do you keep waking up every day and just make the most of it?
Continued in comments....

Rissreads I did find some of the language and how some characters were described etc very dated, but it was written in the 1950‘s. The baby girl Jennifer was often spoken of by her father as an it and not a she/her. I was shocked at how the couple chose to let the child lie by herself in the cot as she was dying rather than pick her up and hold her and comfort her. Wtf? I found this very upsetting and disturbing. 1y

This is my #LMPBC for this month. Low tide at this Port Douglas Beach was awesome except for the topless lady doing yoga. There was a cruise ship in one direction, a fire in the other and crocodiles in front of us. The kids thought it was a great adventure.

I really enjoyed this book. Post-apocalypse / dystopian fiction is my favorite genre and this is an excellent and unique example of this. It reflects the period in which it was written, the late 1950s, and therefore reads a little odd at times (Albania a nuclear power?!). Overall, this is a really poignant story and it was a sad trip to the last page as we watched the characters live out their final days. So sad and gloomy, but sooooo good.

Suet624 I had to read this in school as a teenager. I wanted to slit my wrists after reading it. 2y
BestDogDad @Suet624 I can relate. Being a child in the 70s and 80s with the constant threat of a nuclear war with the then Soviet Union I think this book would‘ve really been scary to read for me back then, too. 2y

I‘ve never heard of a Morris Minor in my life and then one popped up in BOTH of the books I‘m currently reading: On the Beach and The Versions of Us. Both set in the same approximate period and one in England and one in Australia so maybe not that odd a coincidence that the characters drive the same car. 🚗

It seems a shame to end this fun month of pictures on such a depressing note, with such a depressing book, but, hey, I didn't choose the prompts!

#OldCoolBooks #Princeps

Ok, so I had to look #princeps up. It seems “first” is one definition, so I‘m posting this precious 1957 First Edition of On The Beach.

I was haunted by this story as a child. It was one of my mum‘s favourites. I recall the movie and the scenes of the empty streets of Melbourne.

Not long after we met, my husband and I found this beauty on a weekend away, in a tiny second hand shop. ❤️🤗📚

I can't remember the last time I stayed up till 3am to finish a book. Despite the lack of visible death throughout the majority of the book, Shute reminds readers of it's imminent nature through his imagery of death. Quotes above are just my favorites if the kind. I cried at the end, although the characters of Shutes horrible world all had a sense of grace in dealing with their fate. #endoftheworld #antiwar #death #radiationsickness #nuclearwar

I read this book after being intrigued by @BarbaraBB ‘s post.

You can definitely tell it was written in the 1950s. Sexism, drinking & smoking abounds. And what is with him referring to the baby as “It” instead of she???? But never mind all that. It‘s a good story. Would not surprise me if WE all found ourselves in their situation one of these days. The last people on earth living out our last days, waiting for the deadly rain.

BarbaraBB I am glad you liked it! I read it in high school, no idea if I would like it as an adult, but I still remember parts of it vividly. (edited) 2y

What would you do, if you know that'll die within a year? And not just you, but all of humanity? Even though you know what is coming, Neville Shute is still able to capture the reader by this story. I also appreciated the explanations and the motives that he used to explain the development into WWIII. Slight deductions in rating because the book uses very traditional gender roles... it was written in 1957 and it shows.
