Plot. The human race has contracted a virus from bats, and a small group of survivors has been “infected” by an AI with nano-type-bots that give them immunity to the virus. In only a few months, most of the world population is winnowed to the few.
Liked. Wanderers is very long = problematic for many, but I like long, epic books. Character development is great as there are many to like, and many to hate. Page-turning adventure. Narration by Xe Sands is terrific, as usual.
Not so hot. Much of this book is a platform for the political views of the author. There is enough vitriolic hate in American reality today. Wanderers is not fictional escape from headlines but fuel to the flames. Warnings for some readers: Profanity throughout. There is a graphic M/M rape scene – in my opinion, gratuitous and adding nothing to the plot.
Written by Chuck Wendig, narrated by Dominic Hoffman, Xe Sands, about 33 hours of listening in unabridged audiobook format, released in July 2019 by Random House Audio.
