Brand : Robert R. McCammon

Ten stars!

Set in the 1980's, when it was written, swan song follows several characters as they navigate through a post apocalyptic country after a nuclear war. although the book was written in the 80's, the story is not dated in the slightest. i am a huge fan of robert mccammon, but this novel sat unread, in my kindle for months because i assumed that i wouldn't enjoy it, for lack of relevancy in today's world. i couldn't have been more wrong. the genre of this novel is part action and part supernatural. many reviewers have compared this book to stephen king' s "the stand", which is fair. but, mccammon has a distinctive writing style that cannot be confused with anyone else. i absolutely recommend this book!


I could not put this book down!

I read this book in 3 days time (& its a big book). i would read until 4 or 5 am, sleep and hour or two, go to school, go to work, come home and start in again. this is a very powerful book, it has everything: magic, villians, romance... i have read it many times since then and its incredible every time. its even better than stephen king.
