Another great characteristic of this story is that the main character isn't a superman/unstoppable warrior we see in many books of apocalyptic fiction. He is an average guy caught up in a massive human disaster who learns how to survive in a world gone mad. He truly wants to harm nobody, and we feel as if part of his soul is lost every time he must kill to save himself or Joshua. He takes responsibility for a dying stranger's son, and then sets out on an epic journey to lead the boy to a place where he will be safe and loved.
Speaking of love, in many ways this novel is a love story. The man quickly grows to love the child with a protective intensity that all of us who are fathers hopefully understand and relate to. Everything the man must do to protect the child he loves is worth the cost to himself, both physically and spiritually. With no end of characters exploiting and harming others along the road, the man who loves Joshua stands as an example of what is best about mankind.
For those readers who enjoy apocalyptic action, this book is for you. Looking for more of a human-story from your TEOTWAWKI-novel?Read more ›
There is much to love about this book. It has all the features of good PA story ie survival, action, brutality, a quest etc. But what really separates Joshua from the normal fare is the humanity and emotion woven into the tale. There is a real depth to the story telling here and I found myself caring in an almost fierce way for The Man and Joshua. The book has twists and turns, but none of the 'by an amazing coincidence' plot lines you often find in this genre.
It was a delight to read this book. It is an Indie novel and as such there were a few typos scattered throughout, but I decided not to don the hat of the 'proof reading Nazi', and instead just focus on the significant talent the author has shown in producing of work of this quality. I happily and without hesitation award five stars, if you are vaciliating about buying this book my strong suggestion is hesitate no more just click 'buy now', you'll be glad you did.
Now, where can I find another gem....does anyone have a map?
One of my all-time favorite books is "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy, and yeah, it's easy to make comaprisons between the two. Despite the superficial similarities, the two are in no way alike. Granted, McCarthy's use of the language is genius, and his style cannot be duplicated easily, nor should it. "Joshua" is a straight-forward read, filled with enough action and adventure to satisfy even the most ADD-challenged reader. Having discovered this novel on a gun forum frequented by the author, I was pleased to see a well-balanced and unbiased commentary on firearms and their useage. The technical aspects where spot-on.
A five star book for me either makes me cry like a baby, mad as hell, or makes me think of the book for weeks if not months after reading it. Very few books have reached that status for me, although the previously mentioned "The Road" is one such book. "Joshua" falls short for me in that I don't feel any significant post-read emotional bond, but it's still a very strong work considering it's also the author's first novel.
For the download price, it can't be beat. READ IT!!!!
