I realize it’s unfair to compare Hill to his famous father, but I find it impossible not to, having been a King fan forever. Hill does not suffer in comparison at all. He’s a great storyteller, and has a deft way with language/descriptions. This is an imaginative post-apocalyptic tale with a lot of heart-definitely character driven, but the premise is pretty scientifically solid as well, something I think is underrated in post-apoc stories in general.
I was unsure about Mulgrew as a narrator, at first. Although I loved her Captain Janeway, I didn’t think her voice was one I’d want to listen to for hours in end. I was SO wrong. She did an amazing job of differentiating the character voices and the performance was overall very subtlety wonderful. There were a couple of spots that were oddly “shout-y” but otherwise I enjoyed it immensely. Highly recommended!

Now, I would like to say I was hesitant to buy this due to the bad reviews. I am very glad I went on my instinct and bought it. I didn't find anything boring or confusing about this, and I actually love the character development was pretty good. Of course it's not perfect, nothing ever is, Who cares. I still think a lot of people would like this, and whoever said it was like the stand, why? It has the same basic premise, but that's it. It's a totally different book with a totally different feel. I read both, and like this better. I keep thinking, if this is Joe Hills worst, what is his best? I can't wait to find out
