Thanks to NetGalley & Edelweiss for the ARC.

Stunning artwork. Absolutely thoroughly imagined and jaw dropping artwork set to classic and engaging sci-fi themes. Simon Stalenhag has put together, yet again, a totally engrossing and compelling art-book set to vignette stories.

Pairs well with:
Dinotopia - primarily because of the short form fiction work put up against stellar illustrations.
Pamphlet Architecture. The entire series but mainly works from Lebbeus Woods and Zaha Hadid.
Borne, Dead Astronauts, and Strange Bird - Jeff Vandermeer for visualizations of the broken places. ( )

A really beautifully illustrated hardback art book this time looking at a dystopian post future war setting on the west coast of America. Largely concentrating on a road trip with some references to what has gone before this is evocative stuff. It’s accessibility is improved by amazing illustrations. If you like Tales From The Loop then I’d be very surprised if you won’t be captivated by this. ( )

Part graphic novel, part dystopian coming-of-age story, with a sprinkle of "The Road" thrown in, this illustrated novella was unlike anything I'd ever read before, and I very much enjoyed it. ( )

This hauntingly beautiful book lies somewhere in between a graphic novel and an illustrated novella. Whatever else it may be, it is incredible.

The art is magnficent. I would be happy simply looking through a book of these pictures. However, Simon Stålenhag has also given us a mysterious, retrofuturistic, post-apocalyptic road trip story that has left me with as many questions as it has given me answers and a deep longing to return to this universe.

A girl and her robot travel to the California coast while civilization slowly crumbles in a dystopian 1997. Surely this is an appealing premise for sci-fi enthusiasts. Unfortunately, the novelty wears off very quickly. You get treated to a succession of digital West Coast landscapes, invariably featuring the back of an Oldsmobile and some colossal electromechanical structure in the background. A blue hue is overused in *every single image* to convey sadness, dread and pessimism.

The accompanying narration is linear and underwhelming. The protagonist is an unrelatable, borderline sociopathic, anachronistically millennial teenager. She enumerates generic West Coast place names. "We drove along Canyon Lane past Cedar Woods, Woodrington Heights and Coast Terrace trying to reach El Rancho before heading off to El Mezcalito". Repeat on every single page. All toponyms are entirely fictional, so even if you are from California, that won't add any relevant information. Nothing really happens and the pace quickly changes from what we may at best call brisk to glacial. We find out very little about this world, how it works, what has happened, when, why. We don't get any clues to answer these questions ourselves in our imagination either. There's also the cliché teenage angst about foster parents and failed romance. The book is marketed as a tour de force travelogue across a cyberpunk phantasmagoria, in a world similar to ours that took a wrong turn somewhere in the early 1990s. But it really is an oversized collection of postcards with a one-dimensional, poorly written narration on the side.

To finish on a positive note, this could make a wonderful TV series if the basic concept is put in the hands of a capable screenwriter who can spin the story into an action-packed suspense/drama/road movie. Stalenhag certainly is a talented artist with some original ideas, but he would benefit from the help of a more entertaining storyteller next time. He could also add more variety and some spice into his art. It's all very static, scenic and scripted. Probably not enough to drive a narrative on its own. A succession of decently crafted images a good story does not make. ( )

The war had been fought and won by drone pilots--men and women in control rooms far from the battlefield, where unmanned machines fought each other in a strategy game played over seven years.

Not in a series with Tales from the Loop and Things from the Flood; this is set in a separate "universe".
