Reviews for my new novel Wasteland Blues are rolling in, so I thought I’d share them here.
Tim Deal, editor at Shroud Publishing, wrote a foreword for the book. He said Scott Christian Carr (my co-author) and I have crafted “an inventive post-apocalyptic adventure that features an array of deeply-realized characters, striking plot twists, and a wholly new vision of life after the fall of modern civilization.”
Writer david j. moore, author of World Gone Wild: A Survivor’s Guide To Post-Apocalyptic Movies, made some flattering comparisons to standouts in the apocalypse genre:
“Scott Christian Carr and Andrew Conry-Murray have fashioned a wasteland tale reminiscent of some of my favorite apocalyptic movies. A BOY AND HIS DOG and Cormac McCarthy’s, THE ROAD come to mind. Fans familiar with the genre will not be disappointed!”
A reader named Kaitlyn posted her review on Amazon She wrote:
“The ensemble of characters that Carr and Conry-Murray develop over the length of the novel gives every reader a person with which to identify. Their contrasting personalities give the story a depth that draws the reader into the story and doesn’t let them leave … the reader is then sad to see it end and can only hope to discover what these characters are up to in the future.”
Daniel at Goodreads wrote a very thoughtful piece. Here’s an excerpt:
“The only thing I didn’t enjoy about “Wasteland Blues” is that it ended, just as my interest continued to grow and grow. ‘Leave them wanting more’ I guess is the phrase that Carr & Conry-Murray are putting into practice here.”
