Read a book when I was a kid, I’M sure it was called Adam & Eve and then a Date, it followed the journey of a man and women after an Alien invasion, oddly the only bit of story I can remember was the girl teaching the Alien children how to make straw hats, oh and that the cover had a naked man and woman on it (like I said I was a kid!)


1 Answer 1


Probably Adam and Eve 2020 A.D. by Paul Blackden as you can see from the distinctive cover below.

Young Terry couldn't explain the ominous whispering in the sky. Or the terror in his father and mother.
Then comes the televised panic in New York. In London. In old York. All over. Followed by black devastation.
And yet he survives. So does Jackie, the new-age girl.
Together they face the Great Machine and the Evil People.
Just He and She.
They trust in destiny. And luck.
They seek to avoid their future being destroyed in an ash-smothered farewell to the world we know.
The new Adam and Eve.

    ... >_< I don't want to admit how much time I spent looking for a title along the lines of "Adan & Eve and a Date"...

    @FuzzyBoots - I spent precisely ten seconds doing a search on ISFDB for titles containing "Adam" and "Eve" then scrolling down. I then copied the (only) two matches into google images. In fairness, I also spent several minutes trying to find the Minions gif where they laugh about bottoms.

  • ^_^ Yeah. I did about the same thing, except I skipped over the title you mention because I was specifically looking for the text of "Adam & Eve and then a Date" :-P The lack of boundaries on the title and the capitalization of "Date" confused me.

  • @Valorum - There are dozens. If you found the one you're looking for, the polite thing to do would be link it. Minions are the best.
