Good book, but a little too "supernatural" for me.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Swan Song (Kindle Edition)
Swan Song by Robert McCammon is a chilling story that takes place following an all out nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union (The book was released in the late 1980s, near the end of the Cold War). The earth is plunged into a nuclear winter and is a complete wasteland, devoid of plant life. The story is told through a number of unique characters ranging from a New York City bag lady to a pro wrestler. The story switches perspectives frequently between the strange mixture of survivors. Good verses evil is a strong element throughout and the evil is certainly abundant. The bad people in this book are really bad. In fact, one of the characters is the devil himself. Swan Song delves a little more into supernatural territory than I like and it is also a little on the long side but it is definitely exciting. While Swan Song wouldn't be at the top of my list of good apocalyptic fiction, it is certainly worth reading and will provide hours of entertainment.
