The Stand for Realists

5 stars

I was immediately drawn into the bleak world of Wanderers. It reads like The Stand, but with science instead of magic - really, science that appears AS magic. Oddly, it’s the second book I read this year with the same beginning premise of random people mechanically marching for unknown reasons, but Wedig made a lot more of the premise than James Patterson did. Loved the characters, loved the journey, and looking forward to reading the sequel.

This book is right in my sweet spot. Similar in vein to Swan Song and The Stand but just different enough to hold my interest. Of course the parallel with today just makes it hit closer to home. Really enjoyed this and looks like there's a book two so sign me up.

Audiobook. Two readers, very well done.

I'm frustrated that I was working on a review and Goodreads lost it when I finished the book.

On the recommendation of a friend, I started this book via audiobook. I listened to the first 45% in 4-hour chunks. It's about a 33 hour listen. It had a big learning curve and information to absorb and was giving me headaches. There were a number of contributions to that - including reading the book at the start of the covid-19 pandemic. When my library loan ran out, I didn't continue.

However, my friend runs a book group and said we were doing our online meeting and gave a week's notice. So I checked the e-book out of the library and finished it in about 6 days.

While the first half is a lot and somewhat difficult to get through, the second half really gets going. There are a lot of characters …
