    PDF/EPUB John Christopher à à The Death of Grass PDF/EPUB Ï The Death Kindle - death download, grass ebok, The Death epub, The Death of Grass KindleIt’s a depressing sack of sadness that this exceptional post apocalyptic story is not widely read534 ratings as of the time of this reviewa travesty I’m going to try and spread some love and hopefully find this wonderful book some friends with whom to spend the holidays The central theme of the novel How delicate and fragile is the veneer of civilization and how uickly the survival instinct can subdue handcuff and gag the better angels of our nature Written in the 1950’s this novel contains one of the starkest depictions I’ve encountered of the rapid breakdown and collapse of societal norms and common decency in the wake of a global catastrophe It’s portrayal of people struggling to survive in the aftermath of a world wide calamity is exemplary and worthy of being granted status up with the big boys of the genre like Earth Abides and Alas Babylon PLOT INTROA virus originating in China attacks and destroys all grain based crops This includes ev

    PDF/EPUB John Christopher à à The Death of Grass PDF/EPUB Ï The Death Kindle - death download, grass ebok, The Death epub, The Death of Grass Kindle The Death of Grass is not a feminist novel but it can be read as one It teaches a lesson that half the world already knows When society breaks down it’s going to be worse for you if you’re a woman I don’t think John Christopher set out to make this point but he made it anyway John Custance is the main character and the novel charts his growth as the leader of a little band of survivors trying to reach the safety of his brother’s farm But it is not John who interests me It is the women His wife Ann and daughter Mary The newly orphaned Jane And even the sexually promiscuous MillicentSPOILERSFirst there is Ann She and Mary are kidnapped and raped When they are rescued and the rapists lie wounded it is Ann who takes a gun and finishes off one of the rapists Not John Ann “ Ann released Mary gently and got to her fee

    PDF/EPUB John Christopher à à The Death of Grass PDF/EPUB Ï The Death Kindle - death download, grass ebok, The Death epub, The Death of Grass KindleThere's a good introduction in this edition that discusses among other things how this work compares with John Wyndham's Day of the Triffids and William Golding's Lord of the Flies In that analysis Day off the Triffids comes of badlyThe reason for the comparison is obvious both are apocalyptic SF novels where plants are at the root of the problem Ducks flying rotting vegetables in response to that pun Oops another one slipped out set in Britain by British authors writing in the same period of the 20th Century The introduction is very dismissive of Wyndham's effort basically because the book is optimistic than Christopher's which is unremittingly grim right up to the last sentence However my feeling is that there is not muc
