Amnesia Moon
Amnesia Moon | Jonathan Lethem
3 posts | 5 read | 11 to read
In Jonathan Lethem's wryly funny second novel, we meet a young man named Chaos, who's living in a movie theater in post-apocalyptic Wyoming, drinking alcohol, and eating food out of cans. It's an unusual and at times unbearable existence, but Chaos soon discovers that his post-nuclear reality may have no connection to the truth. So he takes to the road with a girl named Melinda in order to find answers. As the pair travels through the United States they find that, while each town has been affected differently by the mysterious source of the apocalypse, none of the people they meet can fill in their incomplete memories or answer their questions. Gradually, figures from Chaos's past, including some who appear only under the influence of intravenously administered drugs, make Chaos remember some of his forgotten life as a man named Moon.

I am posting one book per day from my extensive to-be-read collection. No description or reason for wanting to read the book. Some are old and some will be new. Don't judge me - I have a lot of books.

vivastory This is a really interesting book. When you do read it I def recommend reading Dr Bloodmoney by PK Dick first 12mo
RamsFan1963 @vivastory I'll do that. I'm always up for some PKD. 12mo

Well, that was banana pants.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, where nobody seems to know what the apocalypse was or when exactly it happened, a guy named Chaos sets off from his little pocket of crazy in Wyoming on a cross-country road trip through all kinds of other craziness.

If you like weird, funny, original stories, this might be a good book for you. At first I wasn't sold on the narrator, but he grew on me.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bookbeez Wyoming and the apocalypse. This does sound intriguing! 4y
