    Kindle John Christopher Ó Ó The Long Winter PDF Ö The Long Kindle - long epub, winter epub, The Long epub, The Long Winter PDF/EPUBAfter I read The Death of Grass six years ago I was blown away But I didn't go on to read anything else by him; there didn't seem to be much else still in print But when browsing the local bookshop the other day my eye was was caught by the striking covers on the Penguin Worlds series which included a reprint of The World in Winter I had to pick it upThis is another piece of apocalyptic fiction where we witness the collapse of society this time because of a reduction in energy coming from the sun triggering another ice age But the story does not merely tread the same ground as The Death of Grass It did touch on

    Kindle John Christopher Ó Ó The Long Winter PDF Ö The Long Kindle - long epub, winter epub, The Long epub, The Long Winter PDF/EPUBThis is a difficult book for me to review not only because it is a disturbing story but I also can't decide if it is prescient or whatever the opposite of that would beThe story of how the world reacts to a new Ice Age starting is very reminiscent of the 2004 film The Day After Tomorrow except that it is British and was written 30 years before the film came out There is one scene where American refugees break down the border fence to get into Mexico that was very similar to scenes in the book except that it was played for a cheap laugh

    Kindle John Christopher Ó Ó The Long Winter PDF Ö The Long Kindle - long epub, winter epub, The Long epub, The Long Winter PDF/EPUB12Mediocre myopic post apocalyptic novel Altered solar radiation leads to mini ice age in northern climates England becomes arctic We follow 3 upper middle class Brits as they flee to Africa In a nice touch Christopher has these wealthy Brits becoming the servants and concubines of their formerly colonized AfricansToo much time is spent on the uninteresting relations of the 4 main characters upper class sexual meanderings dull reading in the 21st century Not enough close to zero world building as in how does one survive in the new arctic countries? What happens to everyone? What happens to animal plant life?In the final section an African expedition on Hovercraft another nice touch explores the new frozen LondonI recommend Wyndham’s “ The Day of the Triffids” for the ultimate post apocalyptic London exploration

    Kindle John Christopher Ó Ó The Long Winter PDF Ö The Long Kindle - long epub, winter epub, The Long epub, The Long Winter PDF/EPUBEssentially The Death of Grass but with snow instead of a disease that kills grass The whole thing reads like the worst nightmare from the world of The Daily Mail white people subservient to black people? Swingers? Shock after shock just keeps on coming for the upper middle class softies

    Kindle John Christopher Ó Ó The Long Winter PDF Ö The Long Kindle - long epub, winter epub, The Long epub, The Long Winter PDF/EPUBAn odd one The first part is a domestic drama with trivial affairs and betrayals playing out in 1960s London while in the background a severe decline in the heat emitted from the sun causes society to incrementally unravel Part two takes place in Africa where our protagonist along with the wronged wife of his friend flees to take advantage of the hotter climate but finds himself subjected to the same humiliations and disadvantages that black men suffered in his own country Part three sees Andrew return to England with the Africans on a fleet of hovercrafts persuaded to join a reconnaissance mission by the possibility of locating his ex lover Remember when hovercrafts were cool? I do just aboutThe domestic drama feels like it takes place over a matter of months while the apparently concurrent social collapse seems to progress throughout many years a weird misalignment that it's hard to get over The social commentary while well intentioned betray

    Kindle John Christopher Ó Ó The Long Winter PDF Ö The Long Kindle - long epub, winter epub, The Long epub, The Long Winter PDF/EPUBThe most anemic gutless miluetoast protagonist I have ever read in this genre I thought maybe this would be the guiding motif of the novel the spreading cold of the northern hemisphere and its peoples the loss of emotional heat a Nietzschean disdain for the loss of willbut no it never goes anywhere Competent prose and not much else

    Kindle John Christopher Ó Ó The Long Winter PDF Ö The Long Kindle - long epub, winter epub, The Long epub, The Long Winter PDF/EPUBJohn Christopher as always is great for an engaging sci fi potboiler you burn through in a couple of days This one’s an apocalyptic story about a calamitous weather event causing a new ice age which renders the northern latitudes inhospitable similar to the film The Day After Tomorrow and I enjoyed it a lot It’s also Christopher’s most nakedly political book but discussing that will involve spoiling the entire plot so duck out now if you want to read itScene London in the early 1960s Men are men and women are women and the first act of The World in
