Publisher's Summary

The world has collapsed, and there are no heroes any more. His name is Three, a travelling gun for hire in a dying world. He has no allegiances, no family, no ties.
Against his better judgment, he accepts the mantle of protector to a sick woman on the run, and her young son. Together they set out across the plains in search of a mythic oasis, attempting to survive the forces that pursue them, and the creatures of the dark.
In these dark times, a hero may yet arise.

I like this book. Never boring.

If you could sum up Three in three words, what would they be?

Sad. Intriguing. Action.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, the end, nicely done.


Any additional comments?

This is obviously a post-apocalypse genre book. However the world is not entirely typical for the genre, besides the author manages to keep the world largely a mystery which I like, keeps you guessing and speculating. The story is largely a journey through a sort of urban wasteland where interesting dangers, friends and foes are met. I feel this is a major strength of the book, where some books set-up a typical good vs. evil scenario this book manages to feel like something that could have actually happened to real people. As such it is not a heroes journey even though the title suggest it.

Post apocalyptic lone wolf takes woman & child

A "classic" story of tough lone-man who gives up his rough and tumble life to protect woman & child in trouble. It was a retelling of a western in a post apocalyptic world.

I was entertained through to the end. I didn't rush to read the second book, but I might read it sometime later.

All in all, I found it somewhat interesting, while it didn't impress me with its originality or plot.

So I'd put this in the "time filler" escapism category.
