Welcome to the Apocalypse: My Favorite Post Apocalyptic Audiobooks of 2011: Non-Zombie

6 01 2012

Welcome to my first “Welcome to the Apocalypse” Feature of 2012.

 

Today, we have a two-fer. First be sure to check out my review of the Zombie Apocalypse audiobook, The Becoming by Jessica Meigs. Secondly, I will be presenting you with my favorite Post Apocalyptic Audiobooks that I listened to in 2011. These will be non-Zombie Apocalypse, I am planning a future segment for Zombie Apocalypse novels of 2011 . I think that 2011 was an OK year for the Apocalyptic novel, mostly due to the Zombie subgenre. It was harder to find a decent Post Apocalyptic tale that didn’t involve the cannibalistic hordes. Yet, here were my faves:

I’ll have to look into a few of these. Get outside my comfort zone a little bit!

I’ve seen Soft Apocalypse on some other “best of” reads of the year. Which means that it is creeping up on my radar.

Was excited to go to the library today and find the audio for Ready Player One waiting for me.

Of this list I’ve only read The Postmortal, but I imagine that made a fantastic audiobook. I’ll have to keep an eye out on your other favorites. I’ve heard great things about The Leftovers and The Eleventh Plague.
