Chuck Wendig: Wanderers (Paperback, 2020, Del Rey) 4 stars

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.
