FICTION NOVELS FROM 1950 AND UP
After WW II people became more optimistic and educated and writers were reflecting this in more technical and clever ways.
Science Fiction grew in popularity and other technolocical advances were used in plots and novels.
Parents became more protective of their children as they had more time to spend with them and kid's books were more reflective of the rest of the world and not as dark as they were earlier. There were still many good novels written but somehow they lost the savagery of the older literature. And many classics were re-published with a modern readership in mind perhaps losing something their editing.
Television of course became a huge part of everyday life and there were many book s written about favourite TV shows and characters.
Here are books published after 1950. Some are re-issued ones from earlier times and some are new.
