Malevil - Robert Merle I had heard a lot of things about this book prior to reading it. It is considered one of the better 'post apocalyptic' novels out there (by some). So that leads me to a conclusion that those people don't know what they are talking about.

For me, this book was ok. I couldn't suspend my disbelief towards the author's treatment of events that took place in the aftermath of a major nuclear war. Once the bomb strikes, the characters switch to a medieval lifestyle just like that. Most of the things survive the nuclear war (At least the things that the author deemed essential to move forward his unbelievable plot). All in all, this book was not convincing enough.
