Review of 'The Waste Lands' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

I've read far beyond not compelled to review which I really should, it's just good for the sake of being good. The Waste Lands where we follow the Beam, the city of Lud, and Blaine the Pain. There was a lot of diversity here, snapshots of time gone wonky, people losing their minds--Lord of the Flies comes to mind and a Mono who controls them all with failed dipolar circuitry.

What a wicked web is weaved and who doesn't smell Gasher through his run? If the mad hatter was truly mad and lived during these times, maybe he would have been the tiktok man?

If you want a vivisection of a city in squalor, it's people gone to ash and our trio+bumbler through this arc and onto the most insane ending you should read this.
