The Last Policeman by Ben Winters, Post-apocalyptic Literature (syyskuu 2015)


I loved this book. Part mystery, part end of the world story. This book is going to end up being on my ten favorites of the year and it is only January.

I loved this series. One of the best end of the world stories from beginning to end. A great blending of science fiction and mystery. Be warned though. This is a realistic story. If you are looking for happiness and survival you have come to the wrong location. It is a sad and complicated story. You will not leave filled with pep. You will leave after an incredible journey and beautiful writing. This is the apocalypse done right.

All I can say is... what in the ever-loving fuck happened to the last quarter of the book? The first 3/4 were exceptional! I was drawn in, fully invested, I couldn't put it down. I was so excited to tell everyone I knew about this amazing new dystopian novel I'd discovered. The premise was excellent, and beautifully developed. I liked the characters - Aysa in particular, but Laszlo as well - and I was eager to see how the story would unfold.

And then the "twist" happens, just before Part Three. It comes out of nowhere, despite the fact that Winters has foreshadowed just about everything else, and makes NO sense. Worse yet, nothing's wrapped up. The story veers into an entirely new direction, which is completely out of left field and explains NOTHING. It's worse than contrived. It's nonsense.

I was so disappointed with the end of this novel that it tainted my entire experience of reading it. Needless to say, I won't be recommending this one like I'd hoped, and I won't pick up another Ben H. Winters book for a long time, either.
