I'm hoping someone on /lit/ can help me get into literature. I've read maybe 3 or 4 novels in my lifetime, but most of those were required reading during English studies in middle school and high school.
I recently picked up pic related and really enjoyed it. The novel paints such a vivid landscape of life after the end of civilization. Unfortunately, the novel is pretty short - I finished it the very same day. I'd definitely like to find more novels in the same vein, but there are so many authors to sift through.
As far as other media is concerned, I'm a huge fan of Mad Max, Fallout, Dark Sun and most anything else based in a post-apocalyptic setting, which is why The Road caught my attention in the first place.
By the way, I did check the Wiki for recommended reading, but the synopses of most of the novels filed under "post-apocalyptic fiction" didn't sound too interesting, or they were too involved with specific political or religious agendas. The Wiki is also very incomplete, having a lot of empty tables and no accompanying descriptions for many entries.
