"Alas, Babylon." Those fateful words heralded the end. 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.


The survivors of an H-bomb attack are forced to rely on their own resources amidst the ruins of Fort Repose.

4.0 von 5 Sternen World War III and its Aftermath 28. März 2000
Frank, witnessing the development and spread of atomic weapons, explores the catastrophic consequences of a nuclear war between the United States of America and the then Union of Soviet Socialist Republic. His scenarios are not implausible. In the book, deterrence fails because Kremlin leaders believe that America's "window of vulnerability" would enable them to deliver a coup de grace. The Soviets, waiting for the opportune time to strike, find it in an international incident that occurs in a Third World country. Whether the United States of America during the 1950s was vulnerable to a first-strike is debatable, but this perception was genuine.
The realism of Frank's book is not limited to nuclear warfare theory; it portrays post-nuclear holocaust America. Frank did his research; World War III devastates the United States, destroying metropolises and isolating less populated areas from each other and from the rest of the country. Literally overnight, people living in these areas such as Fort Repose in Florida exist in conditions similar to their ancestors of the Stone Age. The destruction of the metropolises, including Washington D.C., result in power outages, severance of communication with the rest of the country, an abysmal supply of food and water, and lawlessness. Unlike people of the Stone Age, survivors are also vulnerable to radiation.
Despite these grim conditions, however, Frank believes in the civility of humans and argues that most people will preserve the spirit of national and local laws and will help and care for each other. There are many such instances in the book.
Dan, Fort Repose's surviving doctor, selflessly travels throughout the area to treat an ever-increasing number of patients.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Alas, Babylon 3. März 2000
Many students' first idea of, Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank is probably going to about some story of an old ancient city, but actually it isn't about that! It is about the United States. This story has excitement and has to do with a lot of team work as a town comes together to fight something terrible. A small Florida town is facing a unthinkable nightmare of a nuclear holocaust. The Russians Or some other country has bombed the United States. Some of the cities are okay. But there are some down falls to that. The nuclear radiation is falling down on them. It has contaminated everything that they eat or drink. The nuclear bombs destroyed the cities and all of the federal reserves. In the cities are factories that have been destroyed. While all this is happening, people are buying things to get through the ordeal. People who own the stores are getting rich fast, by the people who have bought everything from toothpaste, coffee, liquor, to gasoline, and oil. By now all the electric is out and the rich people cant buy anything. Money has gone worthless. Many people don't have anything, but some have enough to live. People have to go back to trading things and hunting. In this group of friends, they have some problems. One guy is a drinker and has been trading their chickens for liquor. Some of them need coffee so they trade for that too. People of this town must join together and fight. But they have many obstacles in the way. If you want to know what happens. Read the book!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Alas, I read this book 13. Juni 2000
The first, and last, time I read this book was for a high school class several years ago. I had read on my own Nevil Shute's On the Beach before reading this one. I can say that if you've read On the Beach, you won't like this one. The fact that everyone survives a nuclear blast a little more than 50 miles away is somewhat questionable. When Chernobyl went up, people hundreds of miles away were affected. The story line of how everyone eventually works together to solve their problems and clean up the mess from the war is purely hysterical. Where's the looting, pillaging, destruction found after real disasters? Not in this book, that's where. This feel-good outcome of nuclear war, though, does fit beautifully in this category - fiction. And, even, if you haven't read On the Beach, the story in Alas, Babylon is laughable at best. Save your money, buy On the Beach instead. It's cheaper, and the story line is much more accurate. The only reason why Alas, Babylon is popular here, is that it's set in the US. Don't read this book. Get Nevil Shute's On the Beach or even the movie. Both are better than this drivel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very Good 19. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I have an affinity for post-apocolyptic novels. I was hesitant to purchase this novel because I was afraid that it would be too dated for me to enjoy. As it turned out, Alas, Babylon IS dated, but not so that it interfers with the story.
What I enjoyed the most was recognizing the context of the times that this story was written and the writer's attempt to address social issues of that era. Pat Frank made an obvious attempt to give women power; the President is a woman and a young girl saves the day by catching fish when no one else could. This is interesting because the battle for passage of the Civil Rights Amendment hadn't really begun when this book was written. Although I did find his discription of the women's need to have a man to take care of rather outdated. But, it was interesting because I can't imagine someone writing those types of stereotypes today. Also, the writer touches (however slightly) on southern segregation. I felt that he tip-toed around this subject a little too lightly, but I don't think that he was writing about that subject so his light treatment of racism and segregation didn't bother me too much.
All in all I enjoyed this novel immensly. I wouldn't be put off by the fact that it was written forty years ago either.
Now, can anyone recommend any other post-apocolyptic novels to me? Please send any recommendations to:
