    While sailing a trackless sea aboard a ship called the Morning Star, a scoundrel named Davy writes a book detailing his life and times in a post apocalyptic America.Things I liked about Davy First and foremost, the writing style of Davy was what sucked me in and kept me interested Pangborn employs a style that makes me feel like I m sitting down and

    wonderful a pastoral post apocalyptic tale of growing up slowly by now, this formula has been used so many times that it probably doesn t sound remotely fresh but it was fresh to me when i first read it many years back, and re reading my favorite parts of it again tonight, the magic is still there this is not a novel of grand adventure but one of many smal

    Davy My favorite coming of age SF novel of all timeOriginally posted at Fantasy LiteratureDavy 1964 is a wonderfully written coming of age story set in a post apocalyptic Northeastern United States 400 years after a brief nuclear exchange destroyed high tech civilization, where life has become far like the frontier days of the early US, with a scattered group o

    The wit of Vonnegut meets the bawdiness of Farmer A lascivious Huck Finn Not that horrible, with humorous jabs at dogma and ignorance, but an idle tale Brackett did better with less, ten years earlier, but without the laughs.
