Robert R. McCammon Writes About Swan Song

Robert R. McCammon Writes About Swan Song. I've always thought that any kind of film based on a book or short story can be a fascinating experience for the author-not necessarily because the film is good or bad, but because it's a reflection of how other people visualize the author's words. A writer creates the word pictures, and then people who weren't directly involved in that creation process have the task of making the word pictures solid.

crazy mashine
I write this review in the knowledge that probably no one will read it - there are already over 700 reviews and almost all of them are five star. This review is part of that legion and that's fine by me.

So given I am writing this review for me - I will take some licence. Firstly I have read loads of PA ficton ( favorite so far is The Old Man and the Wasteland), but I hesitated with my purchase of Swan Song. I kept coming across references and praise of Swan Song. At $10 is was a lot more than many Kindle reads I buy. Then I thought, the last few books I read were only a couple of bucks - but they were c#%^ and pretty short too. So I thought, Swan Song is over 800 pages - so even if it is just okay it is still better value. So I bought it and have not experienced buyers remorse.

Swan Song draws you in. It is a different type of PA novel as it as a mystical undertone. Not in the kind of 'roll your eyes, give me a break' way - but a spiritual side to the story that adds to its depth and humanity. There are several concurrent plots which weave together as the story unfolds. Each sub plot is interesting. What surprised me was that I became so engrossed with one story line, I literally forgot about some other characters and was surprised when they reappeared. It was ' oh of course, I had completly forgotten about you guys'. That is a really good thing showing just how easy it is to become lost in the story.

If I was being ultra critical I would say that there was a certain 'convenience' of events towards the end. Also - and yes this is just a personal bugbear, the author has obviously had limited exposure to horses. Horses do not lap water like a dog - they suck it. They also really don't behave in the way Mule did. Yes, yes I know it is a minor point - but it was one of the few times in the story where an inaccuracy brought me out of the story and back to reality.

I see many reviewers have compared this to other books ( and no I am not going to reference the books). This really gets my goat. Swan Song is an original work that stands high in its own right. It is , in my opinion, almost insulting to say 'its just like xyz', 'it's as good as xyz'. Swan Song is a great read - enough said.

My boyfriends best friend had just gotten out of the Marines, and we were his first stop. In addition to the numerous bottles of alcohol he brought (I believe the are required to take classes on how to consume large amounts of alcohol and remain standing!) he also brought this book. He handed it over to me and said it was terrific and told me to read it. He wasn't kidding, because I finished it before he left, and I returned it to him. It was was often popping up in my mind throughout the years and I finally decided to locate it and re-read it. My problem was, I couldn't remember the title or the author. (Probably would have been able to if I had not been powering through it!). For years I would use a search engine with words and phrases in hopes of finding out something that could point me in the right direction. Finely, a month ago, I was pretty sure I had found it. I started in on it, and it was most certainly the right one.

It was better than I remembered, and I feel so fortunate to have found it. I now have my own Marine, my son, and I will be sending him this book in his next care package from home. It is a very thought provoking book that has a little twist of fantasy throughout it, but who knows...if we blow up the world, those things might very well happen. In light of our current political issues I found myself even more intrigued. I'm pretty sure most people remember the saying "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me". Most of us know they can hurt. Let's hope that anyone who is entrusted with our country remembers how devastating it could be to make a rash decision.

Nuclear War destroys almost everything on the planet. Civilization is gone and it’s Hell on Earth. Savagery everywhere. A young girl may be the only hope for humanity.

First, the good stuff. I really liked it. Long, epic in scope and engaging. The characters were interesting and I became attached to many of them. I will state again that I hope I am one of the many killed in the opening minutes of a globe-killing event. I couldn’t make it afterwards.

Second, the not as good stuff. It was a definite downer. People scare the hell out of me. The violence, brutality and monstrous behavior sometimes put me in a bummer mood. And some of the graphic, gruesome passages went on and on. I know it’s fiction, but damn. That’s why it took so long to finish, I was sometimes avoiding it. I kept at it, though.

And in the end, especially the last 150 pages or so, I was satisfied and glad I read it. Lots of action and the pace was great. This book often is compared to Stephen King’s “The Stand,” but I haven’t read that one.


Warning- This is a BIG book, but if you are like me, that's not a problem. This book is about a very special girl named Swan that is mankind's last hope.
It is a post apocalyptic style story with supernatural mixed in. It had a Grapes of Wrath vibe to it.
There are a hand full of characters that have separate stories throughout the book and then meeting up in the end. The book spans over years of time but it's one of those haunting stories that you can't help but be affected by. I read this years ago, but still thinking about it gives me chills sometimes. It's so profound that I can't say I have ever read a book that has made me stop and think.
YOU will go through a range of emotions from pity, to sorrow, anger, relief, sadness, and joy.
This book will draw you in and while you are away from it, you won't be able to stop thinking about it, and when you are finished, you will be haunted by the memory of it.
