“Clare, from St. Mary’s book group, always makes us read post~apocalyptic novels,” Teddy told Howard.
“Which ones?” his friend asked.
So far we’ve read ‘The Road’, ‘The Shack’, and ‘Station Eleven’, the former said. “They really make you think.”
“Yes,” Howard said. At least pre~historic man didn’t know what he was missing. It’s all about the apple, Pandora’s Box, no turning back.
“Like it or not,” he continued, “each of us is enslaved by time and change. Those books have really opened my eyes.”
Then they both went back to reading their e mail and listening to Pandora.
