Kirkus Reviews notes that Wendig “is clearly wrestling with some of the demons of our time,” and to that we say: “It’s about time that someone did.”
This one sprawls a bit, and if you’re looking for something a little less thinky than Neal Stephenson’s Fall (which is oh so very very thinky), then Wanderers might be the summer epic for you.
Not that Wendig isn’t working the thinky here. He’s just more of the existential horror social construct falling apart and what are we going to do about it sort of thinky. Whereas Stephenson is busy rewiring the entire evolution of human consciousness as a speculative examination of who we are, how we came to be, and what are we going to become.

What books got you talking this summer? Are there any you’re particularly excited about for fall?
