The premise is good; the crime that instigates the chase is intriguing, and so I settled in for an afternoon buried in the book. As I read my mood plummeted, I was engaged in the story, but sickened by the escalating violence. Civilization no longer exists. This is a kill or be killed society in which any small act of kindness is countered by brutality. Just when I thought there would be redemption in the form of a selfless act my hopes would be dashed as treachery and deceit won out.
The main character is driven by revenge against another, yet, for me, he was the most dislikable character of all. Relentlessly he pursues his quarry across the wasteland while assaulted by real and imagined enemies. I felt as though I should be awed by his tenacity, but I just wanted him to find some relief finally from his tortures.
This post-apocalyptic vision is extremely disheartening and disturbing. The repressed denizens of this brutal land retain a flickering bit of hope that an invincible liberator is amongst them. Yet, when finally the truth is revealed there is little satisfaction to be found. Darkly mesmerizing, surreal, and brutally intense, this book will appeal to those who enjoy looking deeply into the abyss of human madness, where survival is a bitter challenge that must be fought and won daily.
This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
