    What if the apocalypse that befell the poor souls in The Stand was nuclear instead of viral in nature and the whole thing was written in a stylelike Richard Matheson s than Stephen King s Well, you d probably have Swan Song.Comparisons with the Stand are inevitable Both are about the survivors of an apocalyptic event and both have a devil type figure walking around stirring things up Swan Song doesn t have that final battle between good and evil thing going like the Stand did, although What if the apocalypse that befell the poor souls in The Stand was nuclear instead of viral in nature and the whole thing was written in a stylelike Richard Matheson s than Stephen King s Well, you d probably have Swan Song.Comparisons with the Stand are inevitable Both are about the survivors of an apocalyptic event and both have a devil type figure walking around stirring things up Swan Song doesn t have that final battle between good and evil thing going like the Stand did, although some of the events could be interpreted as such.Swan, the title character, starts off as a little girl who s strangely good with plants befor...

    Swan Song by Robert McCammon Every now and then, you come across a book where it seems that the complexities of life have been disassembled from reality and reformed within the pages and text A story that, sometimes in its simplicity, captures the moving parts and varying angles of spirituality, psychology, physiology and sociology like a prism, separates them by colour, strength and depth Then uses the differing colours to paint a kaleidoscopic tableau that opens our minds to that which is kn Swan Song by Robert McCammon Every now and then, you come across a book where it seems that the complexities of life have been disassembled from reality and reformed within the pages and text A story that, sometimes in its simplicity, captures the moving parts and varying angles of spirituality, psychology, physiology and sociology like a prism, separates them by colour, strength and depth Then uses the differing colours to paint a kaleidoscopic tableau that opens our minds to that which is known to be there, but can hardly be seen or touched or felt An hourglass where all the strength and beauty of humanity dances on fine white sand as it slips slowly fro...

    Maybe if I d have read this one before I had read The Stand or Lucifer s Hammer, I might have given this a full five stars, but epic length and nuclear holocaust doesn t automatically make a perfect book.However If you like your dystopias full of a long buildup and full cast and a slow decline into being in the evil camp versus learning you re in the good camp, then I totally recommend this book to you It s the journeythan anything else that makes this a good read.And then there s also t Maybe if I d have read this one before I had read The Stand or Lucifer s Hammer, I might have given this a full five stars, but epic length and nuclear holocaust doesn t automatically make a perfect book.However If you like your dystopias full of a long buildup and full cast and a slow decline into being in the evil camp versus learning you re in...
