I have had the first one in my TBR for a while now. I just started reading it a few days ago and was hooked. I am on book three now and may binge all of them one right after the other.

Nice.

Have you read "The Maze Runner"?

I finished the series.

Very good stuff.

I'll second Station Eleven. I'd also add Hugh Howey's Wool Series.

Hmm...reading "The Stand".

Kinda OK.

A bit slow-developing.

Not really my thing.

for the suggestions, everyone.

Also, it's amazing what ends up as a Wikipedia article: Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction. I particularly like that they make mention of some pre-1900 works ... oh, and the idea of a "cosy catastrophe"!

No, the only way to be truly cosy is like Dorothy in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and take the whole house.

There were a lot of such works back in the 50's up through the 70's. On the Beach, Pat Frank's excellent Alas, Babylon. For some reason, I didn't really connect Lucifer's Hammer with the current Mad Max style post Apocalyptic fiction. Ellison's A Boy and his Dog, which was later made into a movie is another.
