I read Alas Babylon in less than two days. I could not put it down. Frank captured the fear of my childhood (I was seven in 1959), and the constant threat of "the bomb".

The book makes one think...how long would I last in a situation like that? What would the Wal-Mart shelves look like now? How has society changed? Technology? What if the power went out for months and 'gas was no longer sold to private citizens'?

It is a book everyone should read!
