    read Scorch Atlas Scorch Atlas (NEW) I enjoy dystopias and fiction set during and after the apocalypse; I like to see the world being creatively remade a new one entering into the place left empty by the old There's just something intensely appealing in the concept of having a largely empty earth left alone to the few survivors who take upon themselves to establish some kind of order and society struggling to survive and overcome the hardships Although many works h
