Book Review: The Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon

Swan SongIn a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, earth’s last survivors have been drawn into the final battle between good and evil, that will decide the fate of humanity: Sister, who discovers a strange and transformative glass artifact in the destroyed Manhattan streets . . . Joshua Hutchins, the pro wrestler who takes refuge from the nuclear fallout at a Nebraska gas station . . . And Swan, a young girl possessing special powers, who travels alongside Josh to a Missouri town where healing and recovery can begin with Swan’s gifts. But the ancient force behind earth’s devastation is scouring the walking wounded for recruits for its relentless army, beginning with Swan herself. . . .

Have you ever been reading a book that you just couldn’t put down? You’d cling to it while your eyes turned to lead and your head started to bob as sleep slowly wrapped itself around you?

This was one of those books!

With this book Robert McCammon has crafted a beautiful post-apocalyptic horror novel with a nice balance of good-vs-evil.

The characters were well thought out and believable to the point where I could empathize with each and everyone of them.

This is a must read that I have read a few times and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a horrifying masterpiece!

Book Review: World War Z: An Oral History of The Zombie War by Max Brooks

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie WarMax Brooks travels across the United States and around the world interviewing survivors of the Zombie Wars and shareing their devastating stories about the horrors that humankind faced at the hands of the zombies.

 

This book was exactly as the title advertised: An Oral history of the Zombie War.

This is a brilliant example from an author who asked “What if”.  The story was so believable that I had to ask if there had been a zombie apocalypse that I hadn’t known about.

 

I found myself unable to put this book down. I devoured this book in a matter of days and was only disappointed by the knowledge that there was nothing else left for me to read!

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in reading a believable tale about how the world would actually deal with a zombie apocalypse. This book should be on everyones must read list.
