Reviews - What do customers think about False Dawn?

Not Free SF Reader  Sep 3, 2007
A really pretty ordinary post apocalyptic tale. A man and a woman
wander a nasty future wasteland in search of something that neither
they or the reader really seems to become sure of, in the end. There
are the usual mutants and other nasties of such a setting, but there
are plenty of better examples of the genre that you could try out
before getting tot his one.

Another good "Doomer" novel  Aug 26, 2004
Two people wander the earth after an unspecified apocalypse, struggling to survive in a world of complete anarchy. Cities are cesspools and troops of "pirates" reign unchecked. While not as good as Pat Frank's "Alas, Babylon" this is still an entertaining read, although definitely not for younger readers with its gritty violence and rape. The ending is somewhat unsatisfying as well with the fate of Thea and Evan left unresolved.
A Tired Story  Aug 25, 2000
As post-appocalyptic fiction goes, Yarbro's "False Dawn" is medicore at best. I felt as if I had entered the story

in the middle of a situation that I new nothing about. It felt like the story started somewhere in the middle and

that I missed out in some previous background history. The story from there deals with mutants, pillaging, rape, as the main characters of Thea and Evan search for a sanctuary. Thea and Evan move from situation to situation as they try to survive one encounter after the other. The appocalypse, though never really explained in any detail appears to be a series of events over a 30 year period, from evironmental disasters, to chemical spills, to limited nuclear war. As quickly as the story starts, does it mysteriously end, as if the author didn't really know how to end the story, or have some sort of conclusion for the characters. Like an elusive sanctuary, there is an elusive ending to Yarbro's story.

Excellent Book to curl up with  Jan 25, 2000
I read this book over 20 years ago. I still have the orginial hardcover book. Thea and Evan search for a place of haven,a safe harbor in a world gone wrong. The adventures are excellent and you really find yourself being drawn into their search and hoping they find a place to belong. I really wish another had been written to tell how they ended up.
One of my favorite stories of all time!  Nov 17, 1999
The story pulled me right inside and I was there next to Thea and Evan. Sometimes brutal, but that is probably what it would be like under such circumstances. I would hope to be as brave. I first read it 20 years ago. I've still got the original copy from then, and I don't save very many books!
