While many post-apocalyptic books deal in desperate survival, this is certainly not the approach Nevil Shute takes with On the Beach. Yet the human questions and responses that arise from the utter inescapability of death are, in many ways, even more compelling. But this is only the beginning of The Stand. Soon the American survivors of the plague start banding together into groups, one of which becomes aware of an evil and yes, supernatural leader of another, evil group. The nuclear blasts and radiation storms have caused a ripple effect of destruction, and chaos reigns supreme.
But unlike those of Flagg from The Stand , hers are decidedly rejuvenative. Swan is able to connect with plants and nature, accelerating growth and even bringing dead things back to life. James which stands for Phyllis Dorothy! In Children of Men, which takes place in , the population has already suffered through a quarter-century of inexplicable mass infertility.
The English government has been overtaken by a tyrant, but few people care, as politics are largely irrelevant when your species is dying. Only our narrator, Theo who happens to be cousin to the totalitarian leader , and a political group called the Five Fishes actually strive to return to a more democratic society.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy is an interesting one from a premise perspective: though never find out what happened, we have a front-row seat to its immensely damaging after effects. This novel opens on a boy and his father traveling across an ash-covered, lifeless America, in desperate hopes of making it south before winter. Food is scarce and many other survivors have resorted to cannibalism, so the pair must remain constantly vigilant — lest they not only be killed, but killed, cooked, and eaten.
Just one second after the attack, anything that depends on electricity is rendered futile: water systems, Internet routers, and all modes of transport that have electronic parts. As a result, many people are stranded with little food, water, or any viable resources whatsoever.

After the End: Recent Apocalypses. Notify me. Description From the Sumerian epic of Gilgamesh to Norse prophecies of Ragnarok to the Revelations of Saint John to Cormac McCarthy's The Road, and any number of fictional zombie Armageddons and the dystopic world of The Hunger Games, we have always wondered what will happen after the world as we know it ends. No matter what the doomsday scenario - cataclysmic climate change, political chaos, societal collapse, nuclear war, pestilence, or so many other dreaded variations - we inevitably believe that even though the world perishes, some portion of humankind will live on.
