Children of the Dust by Louise Lawrence is a novel that presents the lives of three generations of people living during, in the fallout from, and decades after a nuclear war comes to the UK. This book was first recommended to me when I was twelve years old, having flown my way through Carrie's War, and evidently showing my teacher that I was developing a slight obsession with all things war. Truthfully at twelve, the themes and motifs in the book far exceeded any understanding I had (I even have the vocabularly book I used to keep and from this book I had to find out what facism was... even now I'm not convinced I know!!).

Anyway, before I ramble on, back to the book. To try to relieve my boredom I started to tidy out my cupboards, full of the last 13 years of school work. I started this about 3 weeks ago, but the first cupboard contained the complete trilogy of four of 'The Hitch Hiker Guide..' and related books. They took over from cupboard cleaning for a few days, and then as normally happens at the start of a loooong holiday I found plenty of things to do. Play tennis, watch tennis, eat, play computer ...
