Morrow constructs a wild end-of-world scenario,
By A Customer
This review is from: This is the Way the World Ends (Paperback)
In the same vein as the black comedy "Dr. Strangelove", "This Is The Way The World Ends" is a true achievement in cautionary satire. The men who helped launch the war and the civilian fighting for his life are held accountable for the world's destruction. Paxton's near-death and final reckoning with his family are among the most poignant work in any piece of fiction I've ever read.
To remember just how real the nuclear threat was not even so long ago, "This Is The Way The World Ends" is an absolute must-read.
