The preludes to each story have got to be some of the best parts. While I know, there is room for more stories after the 4th book, I kinda hope he leaves it lie. The Hitchhiker Guide books had irreverence that was taken a wee bit far and pailed because of it. These 4 books are a well rounded meal and worth the read.
Sure, it isn't Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Dickens or Twain but who wants to read that crap anyway?
And don't think this is all about mutant chainsaw wielding zombies out for brains, there are some of course, and super smart bears and less then brilliant people. Alot of those actually. Mostly there are just groups of people, coming together, trying to work it out in the anarchy of the after. And a couple of heroes here and there.
The librarian has to fight through Willie and Coy, a motorcycle cycle gang, a bunch of crazys from inviticus and the skinners. The skinners scare the crap out of me. You will discover that they are scaryer that most things in the apocalypse.
Jerry with the help of Chewy does his best to outwit Mr Christopher and get the girl back. But I think it is worth the read, highly entertaining. That's what we read for isn't it, to be entertained. I'm looking forward to more of The Duck & Cover Adventure series and there appears to be a wealth of material from Mr. Wallace for me to discover while I wait.
I have to say I had to re-read the last few pages over and over again to make sure what I'm reading was correct. I loved the book until you devastated the Librarian. I just wanted to scream NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Please don't be dead!!!! Don't make the Librarian go through that type of pain. NOOOOOOO!!!!! Stomp around, re-read the last few pages. Shake head and hope it's not the end of the series. Please don't let it end this way. Stomp around. Shake head and re-read. Still the same. NOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I loved the dynamic you created. Don't screw it up!!! NOOOOOO!!!!!
@Benjamin Wallace. Please write more!!!!!
Wallace did not disappoint.
The evolution of Jerry's character in this part of the saga is sophisticated and supremely satisfying. The plot is a lot of fun and is a solid mixture of humor and adventure, as we've come to expect from Wallace's work. The medieval motif is as ludicrous as it is brilliant. Parts of Knights reads like a post-apocalyptic Monty Python sketch, and Wallace showcases expert timing with the humorous background dialogue. I'm already salivating over the next installment. WRITE FASTER, BENJAMIN!
It's funny and well-written. I like dry humor and felt like this book succeeded in balancing the humor with a better story than the first. There is something about it that kept me from giving five stars, though I cannot put my finger on it. Maybe that the author is trying to hard to be funny? I'm not sure. Overall I recommend it as well as the first book.
