The best books in a post-apocalyptic world

The Books I Picked & Why

The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger

By Stephen King

The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger

Why this book?

Thrust Clint Eastwood from the old Spaghetti Westerns into a post-apocalyptic world and you have King’s thrilling masterpiece. I love this series and think it’s one of Stephen King’s best, but unfortunately, I’ve seen some negative reviews. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I wonder if the people that put the story down are impatient. Yes, the story starts out a little slow, but if you stick with it, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with it. Patience is a virtue.

Hawk

By James Patterson

Hawk

Why this book?

The new version of Maximum Ride is fantastic!! I ate this book up in one weekend. I haven't read like this since I read the Maximum Ride series. I think there were some parallels drawn from real life into the book. With everything over the last few years, a lot of things seem hopeless and lost, just like in Hawk. I can’t wait for the next book!

Nuclear Winter First Strike: Post Apocalyptic Survival Thriller

By Bobby Akart

Nuclear Winter First Strike: Post Apocalyptic Survival Thriller

Why this book?

Another amazing post-apocalyptic series!!! I’m a huge Tom Clancy fan and I could see many similarities between these two great authors. This story is so close to reality you hold your breath waiting for the bombs to strike. The world faces a future that will take decades to recover from and you feel like your right in the midst of the action.

By T. L. Payne

Seeking Safety: A Post Apocalyptic EMP Survival Thriller (Gateway to Chaos Book One)

Why this book?

Not as popular as some of the above-named authors but still an incredible storyteller. The characters in this book fight for survival against roaming gangs and a bitter winter storm. Great dialogue and intriguing character development make you think you’re facing the same dangers and gasping for breath. The first book of a thrilling series!!!
