Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

“Humanity decides its own fate and the means by which it comes.”

War, locusts, vermin. In the conclusion to White Pickups, the world continues adjusting to the Truckalypse, and to the sudden disappearance of billions of people, seeking a new balance. People in Laurel Hills and elsewhere survive and try to rebuild what they can.

When a vision reveals the nature of the trucks, it is young Cody Sifko who must become humanity’s champion. His friends—and the enigmatic Delphinia—will stand with him, but he must face his inner demons alone.

Pickups and Pestilence takes you on a ride from suburban Atlanta, to the heights of Heaven and the depths of Hell. Buckle up and hang on!

5.0 su 5 stelle Sad to get to the end 28 dicembre 2013

I enjoyed this series finale even more than I did reading the first book. In this book the characters are no longer just fighting for their survival - they are fighting for their souls and the souls of the rest of humanity. This story sets up rich and real characters who have flaws, experience failure, and even have conflict that feels organic and natural. Not only are they fighting off evil- doers, they struggle to agree on certain paths the way a real community would. They were a couple of plot twists I didn't see coming that I really enjoyed and I could not put this down. I devoured this book in 24 hours reading too late into the night and over breaks and lunch at work. Thanks for another great work!

5.0 su 5 stelle Best Indy work I've ever read 2 giugno 2013

This is only the 2nd 5 star review I've given anything on Amazon. (The Other being Mann Booker winner Julian Barnes for The Sense of an Ending) So this is not one of those inflated 'I give 5 stars to any piece of crap' reviews. This book deserved it.

The first book in this duology was very good, but Pickups and Pestilence really took the story and ran with it. The characters, who in the first book, had already made significant personal developments took it even further in this one. The main character Cody, I was afraid would be relegated to the role of infallible king and world beater, but as with all of us in life, he too showed flaws even though he turned himself into a better man at the end of the first book. And with those flaws, he worked on them actively until in the end he was able to do what he needed to do.

So many times when you read a book in a series, the first book with have the major character development and every subsequent book will just put that fully developed and stagnant character into a new plot scenario (I'm looking at you Terry Goodkind in particular.) but Larry Kollar really does a great job keeping things fresh and making this book just as good (and even better in my opinion) as the first.

Even with the plot, I was afraid that things had settled down too much in the world he created and would again stagnate, but he again found a way to organically create more threats to the community that seemed highly natural, and again the people had to work creatively to solve them. Everything presented in this book is a logical step from the first one and does that rare task of both fulfilling itself as a self contained book as well as a conclusion to the story as a whole.

Which brings me to the next point: The premises of the book. I think the idea of cars magically turning into white pickup trucks and driving off with 99.99% of humanity not just stupid but asinine. BUT Larry Kollar is such a skilled writer that he found a way to make me feel that this was a believable story element in the end. I won't ruin it for you, and you'll just have to find out how and why this premise makes sense, but that right there is the hallmark of a brilliant writer. One who can take, let's just say a less than brilliant idea, and turn it into a wonderful story that resonates and pulls the reader in.

If you're not reading this book, you should go out and purchase it right this second.
