    Fair warning, I?m going to start with an anecdote. (Sorry, but stick with me.) The other day I was in a restaurant with my daughter and my parents. The conversation started out, as it often does, with the question: What are you reading? So, I began to tell them about Wanderers....

    I received a free copy of this form NetGalley for review. I?m generally rooting for the end of humanity most days anymore, but if the apocalypse is gonna involve this much walking then I?ll be pretty angry about it because I?d much rather sit on my ass while the asteroid hits ...

    Hard to rate this one. At various times, 2-star, 3-star, 4-star or 5-star. Much like Stephen King's The Stand, I think an abridged version will be published although I do not think this book is nearly as good, perhaps because dystopian fiction has had 30 years of development. One mo...

    It's the end of the world and I feel... uuurkkk... Let me tell you something, my fine folks. I think I had more fun reading this book than I have for ANY apocalypse book. That's including the Stand, Lucifer's Hammer, or The Power. And perhaps a few others that I rank higher than the...

    Take a walk on the long side.... The premise of this book immediately grabbed my attention: a teenager, Shana wakes up to find her younger sister, Nessie, in trance, walking out of their home and along the road. She does not respond, she does not blink, just keeps putting one foot i...

    I've been hearing buzz about Wanderers for several months now and was thrilled to have Memorial Day weekend to curl up and read it! Shana Stewart wakes up one morning on her family farm and notices her sister Nessie wandering down the road. When Shana catches up with Nessie, she b...

    Are you freaking kidding me?! You had 800 pages Chuck and you couldn't wrap that shit up in a nice tidy bow? Dammit. If you haven't already guessed by my rant I am unhappy with how this ends. Too open ended. Hopefully that means there will be another book? Don't get me wrong I l...

    My review of WANDERERS can be found at High Fever Books. Film critic Roger Ebert once said, ?No good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough.? The same is certainly true of books. Chuck Wendig?s Wanderers, sure to be the man?s magnum opus, clocks in at 800 pages a...

    I really wanted to like this book. I tried so hard. But I just ended up actively disliking it, which makes me sad. Wendig bit off something really vast with this novel, and he actually executed it very well. It?s been billed as an epic saga, and that?s a fair description. Wander...

    My two favorite genres are sci-fi and apocalypse, so when I find a book that blends the two, I?m in reading heaven!! My all time favorite books in this type of genre are The Stand, Swan Song, The Book of M, The Passage, and now... Wanderers! All are epic and most are behemoth books! ...

    Based on the subject matter and my previous reads by Wendig (namely the Miriam Black books) I had high expectations and could hardly wait to get started. What a let down. I found it pretty boring. It only gets as much as 2. stars because the science and tech was good. This book needed ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight . 4.5* Not only did I read this whole 800 page book in a pretty reasonable amount of time,I enjoyed every minute. And if you take nothing else away from my review, ta...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. I don't know how I feel about this book. I enjoyed much of it, and other parts of it really ticked me off. It felt grand on an epic scale, but then certain parts made it f...

    A comet streaks across the night sky, and as it does, the lady who foretold the event dies in her sleep. Sleepwalkers start to dot the landscape, flocking together as they move. They are causing quite a stir, some call them the Devil's Pilgrims while others refer to them as God's C...

    I can't stop yawning, so I give up. I listened to 11 hours of the 33-hour audiobook, but I'm still taking credit for "reading" this monster of a book. I'm disappointed that this was a flop for me. I was so excited when I read the summary. It sounded like my cup of tea. Oh well. I hope ...

    4.5 stars If you like end of civilisation stories, this is a good one. The idea of a fungal pathogen was super creepy for me. I cringe every time I even think the phrase "fruiting bodies." Characterisation was well done, and with good variety. Considering how long the book is, I ...

    This was a mammoth book, and I feel a sincere sense of satisfaction for finishing. I delayed reviewing, because I needed some time to wrap my head around ALL THOSE WORDS. Here goes: ?? Two guilty stars because I invested over a week into Wanderers and I have no "OMG I HAVE TO TA...

    Rating: 1.5/5 Review: This was quite the grande attempt at combining ?2001: A Space Odyssey?, and ?Andromeda Strain?. Throw in a splash of zombie like symptoms and voila! Seems like there is a plethora of pandemic/apoc novels floating around these days?.some good, mostly b...

    If you're reading this review, it means that you're interested in my individual experience with this book WANDERERS. I think it's safe to say that this is a highly anticipated release this year and it's certainly getting a ton of coverage. So, I'm going to honor the fact that you're ta...

    This fucking book. I love long "end of the world books." How. it ends doesn't matter to me. This book has many comparisons to other books. Please, let that go. The Stand, and Swan Song are different animals. If you compare Stand to Swan, then you're a fucking idiot. This story. This fu...

    I was so looking forward to this book. This story could?ve been so good. But instead of using the story to take a real look at humanity, Wendig uses this book as a soapbox for his own views, determined to shove literally every hot-button talking point into the narrative whether th...

    Wanderers is far from the first novel of its kind- an epic, sprawling, apocalyptic story, that evokes memories of Stephen King?s The Stand, Justin Cronin?s The Passage, or Robert McCammon?s Swan Song (admittedly, the latter two of these I have not read). And I don?t think any...

    This reminds me a lot of The Stand. In fact, the author admits to it within the novel. What Wendig doesn?t do is veer off into the cartoonish which King, at times, has a tendency to do. Don?t let its length deter you. It reads quickly and I finished it within three days. Wendig wre...

    DNF @ page 300. Yes, I?m still rating this book. I slogged through a third of it ? I?ve earned the right to give it my rating. What I need you, the reader of this review, to know is this book isn?t bad. Chuck Wendig has crossed his q?s and dotted his t?s. The writing is ...
