War Day (and the Journey Onward) by Whitley Strieber and James Kunetka Genre-post-apocalypse novel, 515p, Published in 1984, Grade=A
Post apocalyptic fiction/science fiction is one of my favorite genres. This book was one of the best post-apoc books I have read. The realism was astounding. This book made The Day After look like child's play (and I thought that was a great movie). The authors made themselves the main characters- two survivors of the nuclear war with Russia. They are both authors who decide to travel the war ruined United States to write a documentary on the effects, collect government documents from various sources, and interview folks along the way. Positively haunting. The voices echoed in this book could come from any of us. This is out of print and harder to find. However, I strongly recommend it, though be forewarned- it is not an easy read, it is pretty deep and heavy.
