Waterstones Says

A mighty, apocalyptic epic, Wanderers takes the reader on a journey through a crippled, collapsing America, where an army of sleepwalkers may hold the key to a mysterious epidemic that is claiming the lives of millions. Wendig’s writing is astonishingly consistent throughout the novel’s 800 pages, with the humanity he brings to his huge cast complementing the disturbing twists and turns of the narrative in the most rewarding fashion.

The story is an epic tapestry of humanity, told in a chorus of disparate voices, including Shana, a young girl who wakes up one morning to discover her sister in the grip of a strange malady.

She appears to be sleepwalking. She cannot talk and cannot be woken up. And she is heading with inexorable determination to a destination that only she knows. But Shana and are sister are not alone.

Soon they are joined by a flock of sleepwalkers from across America, on the same mysterious journey. And like Shana, there are other "shepherds" who follow the flock to protect their friends and family on the long dark road ahead. For on their journey, they will discover an America convulsed with terror and violence, where this apocalyptic epidemic proves less dangerous than the fear of it.

“Watch the world end - it's not pretty...”

This particular apocalypse takes two forms: first an unknown force which turns some individuals into sleepwalkers and the second, introduced later in the book, a deadly fungal disease with an almost 100% fatality... More

“Interesting, thought provoking, one emotional ride”

This book is a thoroughly enjoyable, apocalyptic rollercoaster. All the characters were engaging and whilst the book was lengthy it didn't feel like it dragged. The only slightly negative point I would make is... More

What a pleasure this was to sink into. I love a well-told, collapse of civilisation narrative and with Wanderers, Chuck Wendig has made a fabulous contribution to the genre. It tells the tale of the sleepwalkers -... More
