The last battle burned the planet to a charred husk, leaving only a few scattered tribes struggling desperately to survive…like the corps of elite killers who served the dictatorship…or the sadistic bands of motorcycle hoods, prowling the ruins for victims…or the slavers, mutants and madmen preying on those who still hoped to rebuild the future…and a brave few like Logan and his family – the hunted refugees in a world of vicious predators.
Logan’s world is the sequel to Logan’s run, which you need to read to understand the story so far. There is also a film and a TV series.
This book doesn’t hold any punches. It is dark. The story is tight, if it isn’t needed it isn’t there. I like the writing style. Nolan is able to weave descriptions in without you becoming confused or distracted.
Logan run is a main character that you can get behind. He isn’t perfect, something he admits. All the characters along the way seem realistic and true for the current world.
At 146 pages, this is a compact novel. It’s a good read, but I wouldn’t have minded it to have been expanded on. I would’ve loved to see more of people surviving in the world and just more of the world in general. I also missed the previous setting, (but never fear there’s a sequel set there!)
There was certain plot elements that I thought could’ve been weaved more into the story as that plot twist seemed quite abrupt, but it was explained well.
To sum up, fast paced, quite dark and with strong themes, great description, interesting world
Was it worth the read? Yes
Would I re-read? No
