The Last Policeman by Ben Winters em Post-apocalyptic Literature (Setembro 2015)

Resenhas

Interesting premise skillfully executed but not to my liking these futuristic "what if" horror tales.

For me, this is a one-joke novel. It may appeal most to those who love or are deeply familiar with the original. #DNF

I picked up Self Help because it was written by Ben Winters and I enjoyed his The Last Policeman trilogy about the end of the world, it was narrated by two star narrators, Will Wheaton and Ron Perlman, it was short (3 hours 46 minutes) and it was included in my Audible membership.

It should have been a perfect listen for this sunny afternoon.

Unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way. I’m setting it aside a third of the way through because the humour doesn’t work for me. I don’t care about the world of Hollywood wannabes that it describes or the wimpy, can’t-get-his-act-together main character.

When the book failed to raise even a smile after the first ninety minutes, I gave up.

I’m filing it in that familiar category:

“It’s nice work if you can get it…but I don’t get it.”

A briskly moving story about a woman who’s kidnapped away from her infant daughter—except that she starts having memories of a different life entirely, perhaps related to a strange drug port on her chest. An FDA official tasked with investigating the source of the port becomes involved—as does the woman who did the initial kidnapping. Very noir ending.
