Oh boy, was this a wild, fun ride-along with characters that I loved and characters that I loved to hate. There was plenty of explicit gore, some of which actually did make me cringe and stop for a bit. But there were some truly touching moments, too. Much like the post-apocalyptic world of this boo...

So many of my friends absolutely love "Swan Song" and I felt badly that I did not love this book as much as they did. I think most of my problems revolve around the fact that there are three separate mini-plots going on in this book before everything syncs up in the final couple of hundred pages (...

I have to begin this review by noting how busy life is for me at present. I say this not to big-note myself or brag, but simply to explain that my free time is about as precious as it has ever been. And as such I guard it jealously. So I've found myself reluctant to commit to reading epic novels the...

I really liked this book. It took me a long time to finish it but I'm very happy that I stuck with it. And the narrator did a fantastic job.

A post-apocalyptic world decimated by war. An epic tale of good versus evil, as surviving groups struggle to survive and search for hope, as others search for power. Their only salvation my lay in the restorative hands of a young girl named Swan. The writing is smooth and flows well, even through al...

I read this book back when it was first published in the ‘80’s. I was still in high school, had big frizzy hair, wore too much blue eyeliner and pretty much hated my life. I spent most of my free time haunting the local Osco drug for the newest horror paperbacks to escape it all. When I saw this hug...

Published in 1987, the back cover praised this book as "prescient" but its nuclear holocaust scenario, involving the Soviet Union and blaming the "Star Wars" initiative struck me as "dated." That said, the depiction of nuclear destruction, particularly the part set in my own New York City, was chi...

To say I was disappointed with this book is a great understatement! I love the writing of Robert McCammon and rate The wolf's Hour as one of the best werewolf books I have ever read (followed very closely by The Wolfen by Whitley Strieber)However this is not a review of the best werewolf novel! but ...
