A famous author made me afraid of normal items: Clowns, balloons, elderly people in RVs. Now his son has taken my real fear of fire and thrown gasoline on it. Joe Hill has written The Fireman and I cannot wait to get my hands on. I was fortunate enough to have access to an advanced sample through NetGalley. I loved it. I really cared about the main character, Harper. I finished the sample and my first thought was, "I hope Harper is ok." I will have to wait till the book is published to find out.
The fireman of the title is such a mystery. I still haven't figured out who or what he is. He could be a savior or a madman and he is borderline creepy at times. I still want to finish the book to find out his mystery.
I love apocalypse literature. In fact, The Stand is my favorite book. The fireman is such a fresh approach. Apocalypse by fire? Been done with nuclear war. Apocalypse by disease? Done many times. How about apocalypse by viral fire? That is new.
I really cannot wait until the book is released so I can find out what happens with these characters I am invested in. I would just like to state that writing a review of only a portion of a book is tougher than I thought it would be.
