Earth Abides

by quapajohn on Oct 12, 2012

My all time favorite book , all genres and all authors . This is " the post apoplectic novel" of them all. I have read this book many times and will read a few more before I die, God willing. It means so much that my son gave me a first edition for Christmas last year and it the only gift I received in years that I still remember . I love it. Read it , that is all.

Another good book about the end of mankind and how they will struggle to carry on the species. As I approach the end of the book it turns out to be more and more sad because all the main character disappear... but the other ones carry on


awesome thought

I have read this book three times. My son has read it at least twice. My mother has read it several times. It was my grandmother' favorite of all times and she read alot of books in her life. She expired in 1987 and I inherited her copy of "Earth Abides". It is very well used....I would not part with it. I have purchased several copies from Alibris and have passed them along to several people. In today's world this book appears to be becoming more like a non-fiction book than fiction...if we are not careful.


this was a re-read

Read this book again after many years and still enjoyed it. Wonder if this kind of behavior among people would really happen in a like situation?
