While a few of the storylines come crashing together as part of the chilling conclusion, many are left in limbo. I am interested to see how the other stories weave into this overall landscape of the post-apocalyptic world according to McBain and Vargus
That's about where the Stand comparison ends.
I'm not knocking it. I'm a huge fan of the entire (post)apocalyptic genre. In fact i devoured all three books in this series in 3 days. Frustratingly this is the only story told in the classic third person observer style. Book .5 and 1.5 are in the form of letter correspondence and journals which was frustrating for me because that style has almost no outlet for story closure. So I only really enjoyed Book 1. I've read some grumpy reviews griping about the lack of action in the storylines. McBain and Vigus focus a great deal on character development and the emotional traumas of living through an apocalypse much more so than the frenetic, gratuitous hyper anxious pace of some of their contemporaries. I particularly fell in love with Erin and Izzy and was very disappointed to not see them in Book 1.5. I enjoyed Travis's arc immensely and found his story true to who he was internally. Mitch dragged on forever however until I found myself skimming pages to get through his incessant internal half-assed blather. I enjoyed the authors rich descriptiveness but started to get yanked out of my suspension of disbelief by their repeated uses of sweat, greasy skin, deltoids, pulse and lip fixations. It became a pattern to distraction. I came to enjoy Decker in .5 and even though Fiona's madness was annoying, I understood it. I also enjoyed the vague Misfits reference as two character storylines overlapped for a minute at Chuck-E-Cheese. (I always called Glen Danzig "Punk Rock Elvis"). I really hope the writers fix the descriptive repetition ticks in Book 2.0 (There WILL be a 2.0... RIGHT??!) and flow back to the third person style, picking up on Erin, Izzy, Bags, Ray, Rabid Girl, Decker and Marissa.
I'll be keeping an eye out for that 4th installment. Take your time with that one guys. 1 showed some passion. .5 and 1.5 seemed like married sex - dutiful.
I've bought the eBooks and/or autographed hardcopy of this series. Going to have to buy them as gifts because I'm not lending them out!
