    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 uickly and I finished it within three days Wendig wrestles with potent uestions here including the power of

Wanderers

A decadent rock star A deeply religious radio host A disgraced scientist And a teenage girl who may be the world's last hopeShana wakes up one morning to discover her little sister in the grip of a strange malady She appears to be sleepwalking She cannot talk and cannot be woken up And she is heading with inexorable determination to a destination that only she knows 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 uickly and I finished it within three days Wendig wrestles with potent uestions here including the power of technology extreme prejudice the religious fa ade and violence of the Christian right morality and the crumbling of society What s he is able to inject into it both humor and the uirkiness of mankind If you liked The Stand I ll go out on a limb here you ll like this even

But Shana and her sister are not alone Soon they are joined by a flock of sleepwalkers from across America on the same mysterious journey And like Shana there are other “shepherds” who follow the flock to protect their friends and family on the long dark road aheadFor on their journey they will discover an America convulsed with terror and violence where this apo It s the end of the world and I feel uuurkkkLet me tell you something my fine folks I think I had 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 restBut let me be clear I had the most fun with this I m not saying it has MORE to gloam onto than the Stand but I had myself a few issues with the Stand The whole moralistic good vs evil for example And I had a bit of a rough time with some of the 70 s sexism in Lucifer s HammerWanderers however is leagues above most of the current runs of epic dystopias No it s not a zombie apocalypse or a big meteorite spoiling everyone s day or the ultimate reversal of the sexes It is however uite free of rampant female humiliation gratuitous rape and violence in general This book is full of heart even while it DOES have a rather usual trope of religious nutters white supremacists and NRA hotheads They re uite happy to be all opportunistic on humanity s assWhat sets this above all the rest Clever fundamental choices and trope inclusions baby Very strong science too And delightfully complex charactersBut for me I love the pop culture references Wendig is like some kind of master with pop trivia and really sharp maybe bloody wit His Miriam Black novels left me bloody with words In Wanderers he tones it down a LOT and he tames it for the sake of this story So what that means is we ll be seeing some REALLY cool crap popping up subtly in the tiny spaces Like Fallout Check Like Matrix Check Like brilliantly chosen musical references strange ass details that HAVE to be memes that haven t happened yet or setting choices that wind up being fantastic in jokes for you modern pop reference junkies CHECKAnd in the end I remained excited exhilarated throughout this read Sometimes a book will sap my energy Other times rarely a book will just pour it into me This is one of those books Am I super happy to have read this You betcha I feel almost like I was watching the first season of Walking Dead the first time Before it got all you know

Calyptic epidemic proves less dangerous than the fear of it As the rest of society collapses all around them–and an ultraviolent militia threatens to exterminate them–the fate of the sleepwalkers depends on unraveling the mystery behind the epidemic The terrifying secret will either tear the nation apart–or bring the survivors together to remake a shattered wor 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 WORDSHere goes Two guilty stars because I invested over a week into Wanderers and I have no OMG I HAVE TO TALK TO EVERYONE ABOUT THIS BOOK compulsion to show for my commitment to this huge and wandering novelI don t uite know how to characterize my experience reading Wanderers The first two thirds of the book 500 pages feels like setup for the story This is a LONG preface to the real action and could probably be reduced to several chapters in a much desired for this reader anyway abridged versionWe meet the Walkers who are basically regular people who hear some kind of calling drop their lives and in a zombie like trance begin a walking journey as a flock to an unknown destination west We also meet1 their Shepherds familyfriends who volunteer to care for the walkers2 the CDC scientists studying the walker phenomenon3 the fear mongering religious zealots some if not most are not religious just evil fckers preying on fearful worshipers4 a sentient piece of software known as Black Swan that predicted a global plague resulting basically from humans trashing the planetWe uickly find that the Walkers are somehow immune to a uickly spreading fungus that promises to all but extinguish humanity and many people fear the Walkers immunity as much as their predicament The disease known as White Mask caused by a fungal pathogen Rhizopus destructans is going to decimate the global population But we the flock are protected by the grace of Black Swan an artificial intelligence inhabiting our bodies and brains with a connected swarm of infinitesimal machines existing in nano scale RobotsSo if you re patient enough to get this far around 70% in we FINALLY get inside the Walkers heads We find out the members of The Flock are telepathically connected in a simulated shared reality This view is WAY interesting than all the fearful and head scratching hubbub going on around the phenomenon and particularly satisfying because we had to wait so long for it Things ramp up a bit and no spoilers but be prepared to get stiffed on firm resolution of all the uestions dangling out there for the full 800 pagesI ll be the first to admit the delay in getting to the meat of the story was difficult to suffer And the constant religious references and uestions were annoying enough so that I would almost classify this as Christian fiction which I would have avoided had I been forewarned Note I am not a Christian but I heard enough preaching and religious bigotry and then speculation about angels demons the Christian God heaven faith the divine etc to assume a believer would have a much easier time than I did with the rural American culture as portrayed by Chuck Wendig Can I recommend this as a thriller No This slow tedious build up is the exact opposite of thrillingAs an apocalyptic epic to go next to The Stand Swan Song or The Passage trilogy Ehh that s a huge stretch unless you re willing to go purely based upon word countAs a sci fi novel Absolutely not because there s not a lot of science to it and it doesn t go out there enough to ualify Maybe as a speculative study of the human condition Okay sure Why the heck notIf you ve read this far in my wandering review tell me what you loved about it so maybe I can move my mind into loving it too Or if you could take it or leave it tell me this too because I want to know I m not sitting alone on this fence
