I read this book at the recommendation of a friend. It was self-published and had the look and feel of a small college textbook. I had my doubts as I opened the front cover of Scourge, but I can assure you that any self-doubt evaporated quickly thereafter. One of the things that Michael Juge does so well is that he immediately hits close to home for many of us urban desk jockeys. Anyone (this book is not limited to disgruntled federal employees!) experiencing self-doubt and dissatisfaction with the rigidity of urban life will quickly connect with our hero, Chris Jung, as Juge guides him to the very brink before Jung’s world is turned upside-down by cataclysmic events. After reading the first few chapters, I felt deeply invested in Jung’s strife. Another thing Juge has done with this book is cultivate a number of characters that he obviously cares about very much. It is all but obvious that he has taken those important in his own life and made them into post-apocalyptic heroes who are developed throughout with a great attention to detail. This book is a page-turner, and while I consider it to be a post-apocalyptic novel it is also funny and compelling. Juge never misses an opportunity to thumb his nose at the imperfections of modern society with quick wit and frequent dashes of sarcasm. I look forward to reuniting with the characters created from Juge in future installments, and would recommend this read to any reader looking for fast-paced fun strafed with a degree of cynicism and doubt toward our more “modern” world.
Thanks for the review. I really liked the book too, and I know for a fact that work is progressing nicely on the sequel.
May the road gangs never meet you. May the wind be fallout-free. May the sun shine through the ashes, hot rain not fall on thee. And until we meet again, may no one hold your flesh in the palm of their hand.
