Someone left a comment on my book review blog that is a stumper… Oh Collective Brain! Any ideas?

“Hi, can anyone tell me the name of a book. I was sure it was something like war of the gods, but i cannot find it anywhere. its starts off with the author telling us about a nuclear war in which not a lot of people survive. it goes on to say that the survivors find a diary and keep it (like the bible). Then later in the book it basically takes passages from the bible and dissects them ! If anyone can help that would be great !”

Do you think it’s a teen? Do you think s/he has asked the local school or public library?

Leave a suggestion in the comments!

    Could it be The Book of Dave by Will Self? Parts of the description fit….

    I think maybe you are talking about ALAS,BABYLON by Pat Frank. It takes place after a nuclear war and I know that the title comes from the Bible. Hope this helps…good luck.
