Wolf and Iron Read & Download µ 4 The Iron YearsAfter the collapse of civilization when the social fabric of America has come apart in bloody rags when every man's hand is raised against another and only the strong surviveJeebee Walther was a scien. This is a rather strange book The original barely logical plot of traveling to some long lost brother s ranch is uickly abandoned in favor of survival porn endless descriptions of scavenging and rigging weapons and shelter Normally that d be pretty tense and interesting but the main character stumbles across the post apocalyptic euivalent of Home Depot in an abandoned ranch that provides him with all the supplies he could need for the last third or so of the book so it s like reading some prepper s blog about a weekend out in a nature preserveFor how much research Dickson put into this novel it s strange how often the little details seemed to escape him Jeebee starts the novel stocked with a handful of futuristic survival devices that simply vanish from the narrative with no than a passing thought of Oh I can t find it In the middle of the novel he s gifted a giant sword like Bowie knife and even given knife fighting lessons The other character warns Jeebee to never get into close combat unless he absolutely must and that he should never use this megasword for chopping wood or other mundane things only to kill Oh man I thought surely this was going to pay off in some epic life or death scene where Jeebee has to machete chop somebody to death Sweet Nah The knife gets strapped to his boot and is never mentioned againSo for how heavily the book relies on the relationship between Jeebee and Wolf for its interest tension and progress very little is done with it I started the book thinking it would be something along the lines of A Boy and His Dog and was pleasantly surprised to find it was a realistic depiction but I still feel like the interactions between human and wolf suffer from the same pitfalls as the survival writing bland lists of researched details couched in the thinnest plotAs a rather silly aside This is probably the first book to make me exclaim move on already aloud while reading it Strangely enough it wasn t the scene where the main character eats wolf vomit that did it but the birthing scene Granted I have a strange phobiahatred of anything pregnancy related but the details Dickson selected for his otherwise rather sparse descriptions were rough to get through
