Books I’ve Read No. 13 – Swan Song

Standard

By Robert McCammon.

Now, I’ve been a fan of McCammon since I read Boy’s Life, long, long ago – and I own in paperback. I’ve not re-read it yet this year, so can’t be on my list for 2017, but it is one of my favourite books ever. Go find it, especially if you grew up in the south. 

Back to Swan Song. This is apocalypse fiction, which is probably my favourite genre since I read The Stand as a teen. I won’t call it post-apocalypse as it starts with normal life and moves on, which is what I like best. Seeing how the people react and change and what they do to survive. I just love it.

Swan Song is one of the best. I prefer fewer supernatural elements, and not so much good vs. evil, and no mentions of god. But nonetheless it is is cracking long story that immerses you and makes you hope for good things to happen.
