This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly.
But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness. Will Patton's narration paints this classic tale as an ominous picture of the terrible possibilites of the nuclear age.
Enjoyable to listen to. Kept my interest and the time passed by quickly.
Kept my interest. Good story.
Eloquently written, and though at times, less frightening than the reality we forever now find ourselves in, deeply moving nonetheless. The author is honest to the ideas as well as the horrors of the contemplation: nothing more than anyone can ask of someone who ponders the unthinkable.
