Part Hemingway, part Cormac McCarthy's The Road, a suspenseful odyssey into the dark heart of the post-apocalyptic American Southwest.
Forty years after the destruction of civilization, human beings are reduced to salvaging the ruins of a broken world. One survivor's most prized possession is Hemingway's classic The Old Man and the Sea. With the words of the novel echoing across the wasteland, a living victim of the Nuclear Holocaust journeys into the unknown to break a curse.
What follows is an incredible tale of grit and endurance. A lone traveler must survive the desert wilderness and mankind gone savage to discover the truth of Hemingway's classic tale of man versus nature.
Now with a new introduction by author Nick Cole.
Could really use an editor
This story contains more than a few spelling and grammatical mistakes. It reads more like a first draft, rather than a finished product. Much of the backstory is pretty weak and unrealistic, as well.
Get the saga
I think the previous reviewer might be misunderstanding some of the artistic qualities of the novel.
It's incredible. I love post-apoc fiction and have never read anything this gripping.
