Matt and Kristen, his girlfriend, live in Minnesota. Matt is headed to California with his original screen play and producers who are very interested in his work. But something happens on that plane ride that changes everything we know.
Matt wants home to Kristen. With the help of some new friends, (this has some very well written characters) Matt will persevere.
Lots of action in this book. Enjoyable read.. 😁
I loved this 30 chapter book. It was suspenseful and full of action. Chills ran down my spine when Matthew (a.k.a. Hayes) and other passengers were on the plane. Everything was cool at first, in fact, I thought it was pretty cool that he was making friends with people in his row. Hayes went into the bathroom. He saw a flash, then had a headache. All he*l broke loose after that! I also loved the mystery aspect of "The Event." Why did some people stay normal while others turned into violent crazies and others turned into peaceful crazies stuck in la la land? You'll have to read to find out.
My favorite lines: 1) Killing was all they cared about, even if it meant injury or death. 2) Ten minutes ago, the screenplay was the most stressful thing in his life. Now he didn't know if he would live to see California. What a difference. 3) They made the cut to survive the Event, but that didn't spare them from youthful inexperience. 4) "Everyone dies, Matthew. How one lives is what's important." 5) Every writer's dream was to have their work reach the four corners of the world.
Hayes met Patrick (a.k.a. Barnes) and Andrea (a.k.a. Medina) on the plane-they were the only normal ones left on the flight. When they dispatched to other airlines, figuring something peculiar happened to other planes as well, it was crazy. I had goosebumps whenever other planes crashed to the ground. I feared they wouldn't make it; thankfully, Barnes held himself under pressure.
After landing the plane, they ran into Officer Odez and Charles (a.k.a. Hinckley). Trouble followed soon after. Once the first victim died, I knew no one was safe. I knew that the characters needed to keep their guard up no matter what. They found shelter in an abandoned home, coming across Cameron (a.k.a. Levine), a 17 year old girl. Let's just say, there were 6 total in the group-only half made it.
The rest were saved by the military, who brought all civilians to a base. The thrills kept coming. Not only did they have to worry about the violent crazies, now they had to worry about the egotistical Sergeant in charge. He wanted to set up his own civilization, didn't matter the costs. These survivors weren't met with compassion. They were met with the message that he'd use them by any means necessary (for example, women would be used to pop out babies with no choice in the matter).
Another intriguing mystery element: the man in a pinstripe suit. Hayes kept seeing him. At first, I thought he was a ghost, but he could've been a hallucination or his mind playing tricks on him.
The author was great with plot. It was a real page turner for me because the situation was so WTF. I had to read the ending fast to get the answers. There were no boring sections, and the author paced the story out really well. By the end, I really cared for Barnes, Medina, Hayes, and Kristin (Hayes's girlfriend). The ending was stellar-I didn't see that coming!
I RECOMMEND this book to read.
A mysterious event has befallen the US with people being reduced to either a mindless staring bunch or a blood crazed violent hoard. Not all are affected by the event though and the story follows a character by the name of Hayes, as he tries to get back home to his girlfriend. The ending of this book was very powerful and left me stunned.
So do yourself a favour and give this book a read, you will not be sorry.
The Last Stonestepper is a very enjoyable book. The frequent appearance of the ominous "man in the pinstripe suit", that is visible only to the protagonist, is an element reminiscent of characters we've seen in Stephen King novels. Many of us writers, readers, dreamers and other "stonesteppers" will likely relate to Matthew's temptation to retreat from misery and suffering into some fictional realm. Suspenseful and downright scary at times, The Last Stonestepper gives you that heightened awareness of your peripheral vision like great horror should. Elliot Logan has also captured some very human, emotional elements in this apocalyptic horror novel that make it unique in the genre and well worth reading.
