REVIEW CONTAINS VULGAR LANGUAGE.


Holy Fucking Shit. This if so fucking amazing and I want everyone to read it and I need to see the movie and the graphic novel and I might as well induldge in my capitalist, hedonistic lifestyle while I can.


I need to review this again when I'm not having my mind blown from the end of this book.

Great story, but too much bad language.

This book is quite political, and the politics of the book is the part I find the most frightening. The alt-right movement is terrifying! It was interesting to read a book about a pandemic that was written pre-Covid-19. The question I was left with is, was Black Swan evil or not? Was it’s actions for the best of mankind or not? There is no straight answer to that question, I think.

Seemed appropriate to read at this time in history.

The best end-of-the-world book I have read since Stephen King’s The Stand. Possibly better. Fans of King will recognize that Wanderers draws elements from The Stand, The Dead Zone, The Long Walk, and Joe Hill’s The Fireman, but it is also uniquely it’s own story.

While mostly a plague-induced apocalypse story with a bit of a sci-fi twist, it’s set in 2022 USA where political/ideological division is still frighteningly strong. The visceral and violent reaction of (certain) Americans to the Sleepwalkers and the plague is 100% plausible and that’s what makes Wanderers part horror as well.
