John Osborne laughed. “It‘s not the end of the world at all,” he said. “It‘s only the end of us. The world will go on just the same, only we shan‘t be in it. I dare say it will get along all right without us.”

BarbaraBB Fantastic quote. But I do have a weak spot for the book. 5d

This was so good until literally the last page and a half or so. Leigh & company had been on some really intriguing journeys/growth narratives, and the ending cheapened those experiences, imo. #yascifi

Very fun, one joke after another.
Read this as a buddy-read with one friend. We are getting together tomorrow to discuss it.

Bonus post for 'O'! I really wanted to also to highlight Good Omens! Even thought it doesn't START with an O, it does have three of them in the title so I'm totally counting it! 🤣😂

Branwen @ravenlee Okay, YES! THAT IS ACTUALLY PERFECT! 😂👍🏻📚 1mo

#AlphabetGame Letter O

This is such a scary book about a nuclear cloud drifting towards Australia where the people can do nothing but wait for it. Each in their own way. I read this a long long time ago but will never forget it.

MrsMalaprop One of my childhood favourites that haunts me to this day 😱. I say childhood; I was probably around 12 when my mum introduced me to the novel then the movie. And I lived in Melbourne at the time! 2mo
BarbaraBB @MrsMalaprop that must have been so frightening! I was a bit older (14) and lived across the globe but I could imagine it vividly. I keep thinking about that woman stubbornly growing flowers in her garden. I‘m not even sure if I remember it right… (edited) 1mo

Suet624 I read it as a teenager as well. Still remember how I felt while reading it. 1mo

5⭐ I've read this book several times (and misplaced many copies, like the forward discusses 😆), and I didn't think it was possible to love it more. I was wrong. The full cast audio version of this is amazing. I found myself laughing without caring who heard and noticing more nuances in the dialogue than ever before. I highly recommend this version!

This was my #BookSpin for August.

shanaqui Ooh, I didn't realise they'd done a full cast version with Tennant/Sheen. I should pick this up! Sounds awesome. 2mo
Nelnjali It is so good! I absolutely loved their performances. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 2mo

A book you'd recommend whose title starts with the featured letter.

I've went with Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank. This one was slightly dated but it was still an engrossing, thought-provoking and entertaining read.

Amiable Oh, this book is SO good. My son had to read it in high school and he passed it to me. I still think about it 10 years later. 2mo
GinaKButler I grew up in Florida and this was required reading. My dad worked on one of the Navy bases in Jacksonville and I remember how terrifying it was to discuss this book in class. Excellent rec! 2mo
