Preview/Review - Sally of The Wasteland #3No one else seems to want to say it (except us that is). So I will. This is a great book, but it’s hard to say that. Why? Because the female characters all have a pseudo-misogynistic angle that if looked at alone would be really disturbing. But take this book in context (and with a grain of salt) and I think you’ll enjoy this SyFy-channel-esque action/adventure/post-apocalyptic/fantasy. The main character, Sally, is obviously damaged. Her shotgun has a name (Bertha), she dresses like “Daisy Duke gone wild”, and she openly fixates on and attempts to manipulate the feelings of the young man she’s decided is hers. Now written down like that it doesn’t seem all that off but when you read it, it can be a touch, disturbing. The rest of the cast isn’t much better. The book is a fun romp though. On their trek through post-Apocalyptic Louisiana Sally and her traveling companions have met up with, giant river dwelling creatures, cannibalistic rapist pirates, a pack of “Banazons” (who they’ve absorbed into their little crew). This series is as grind-housey as it gets, with tons of action, adventure, and rampant sexism (toward both sexes). Then top all that off with some stellar artwork. If you’re looking for an off the wall adventure this just might be your book.
