    1. It's hard to review a book that you first read when you hadn't even hit your teens (and didn't really understand) and then re-read 25 years later. It was written in 1964 and when I read my parents' copy in the mid-eighties even I knew it was incredibly cool. Now I'd describe it as a cult novel, or in the tradition of John Wyndham, or a zeitgeist reflection on burgeoning sixties rebellious mores. But when I was 12 I just knew it was way cool. It's taken me since then to track a copy down after my [...]


    2. It had some really slow moments but overall a pretty good read. It had some tense relationships, some action, and some gore. It painted a very heavy picture of what a situation like this would really be like.There was no sugar coating and I liked the dark tones to it.I'd recommend this book but good luck finding it. I ordered a good used copy online and I'm not letting mine go.I'd read it again and surprised that this wasn't adapted into a movie. I heard that the Rolling Stones tried to get it o [...]


    3. Really enjoyed this book. Although I wonder what the world would be like if all the adults or oldies as the book calls them were dead and the teenagers took control of everything. At some point they become adults. Wonder if teenagers realize that.


    4. Four stars for concept and two for execution. This is a real period piece from the time when teenagers were a new phenomena. see also Absolute Beginners, Colin MacInnes.



    5. Brilliant - a true lost gem, beautifully re-presented in this Valancourt edition. Violent, haunting and touching by turns, with an all-pervading sense of loss, longing and the perennial teenage search for meaning. Once optioned as a movie with Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall brought in to write the screenplay - and starring the Rolling Stones who were to write six new numbers for the soundtrack. What a film that would have been!


    6. Technically I own this, but I think I'll be leaving it in Helsinki.Like most 60s pulp, not nearly as risqué as the cover copy would have you believe; mostly a sad, grim piece about people slowly going back to an agrarian existence. The teenager-hood mostly seems to come up in terms of having a group of people who haven't yet had any kind of midlife crisis or yet gotten bored.Would rate between a 2 and a 3, but I really needed some background noise and this provided, so giving it a 3.


    7. A plague of ennui engulfs the world, causing everyone over the age of eighteen to commit suicide in a fit of existential despair! The survivors form into gangs that fight each other for control of territory and the steadily dwindling supplies of canned food. (Also they have lots of orgies.) It's like someone took "Baba O'Riley" and "London Calling" and smashed them together to make fishcakes. Except this is years before either of those songs. The book came out at the height of the Mods vs Rocker [...]
