Since Tomorrow


by Morgan Nyberg



Since Tomorrow is a really good story about good versus evil.

I read a lot of post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction. "Since Tomorrow" is one of the better examples I've seen of these genres.

SINCE TOMORROW is a novel of a world in the remaking.

The old man, Frost, remembers the "good times". Those who live on his "farm" among collapsed warehouses and the foundations of vanished houses struggle to maintain human values.

But when others in this makeshift world are driven only by greed and the need for power, all values must ultimately be replaced by the simple instinct for survival.



Since Tomorrow is a strong story, with well-crafted characters and just the right amount of description. I warn you, though, it will keep you up past your bedtime.

This is a magnificent book that lays out an exquisitely formed vision of a broken world that has lost the trappings of civilisation as we know it, but none of its emotional underpinning.

Oh, my. Morgan Nyberg's SINCE TOMORROW is the best post-apocalyptic novel I've read since Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD!

All the characters in Since Tomorrow are lovingly fleshed out, from old Daniel Charlie, maker of wagon wheels and arrows and bows, to Grace, who excels at amputating limbs when all else fails, to Will, the precocious grandson who has memorized "The Art of War" and counsels his grandpa on strategy.

Will's older sister is Noor, and she makes heads turn. Willow is the name of a woman who falls victim to the irresistible drug, skag. Other women are called Salmon or Amber or Cloud. The men's names are no less arresting: Pender, Nordel, Tyrell, Fundy, Wing, BC, Shaughnessy, Granville, Robson, Bailey.

The author has created a world in which people's story is suggested by their name, the way it was a thousand years ago. They don't have much left, but they have a name, and there is dignity in these names.
