The Old Man and the Wasteland, Nick Cole

Created by cmiles on 11/30/2012. Updated by Wordpresss Import on 4/18/2022.

The Old Man and the Wasteland by Nick Cole is a short post-apocalyptic story with (as the title suggests) some parallels to Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and The Sea. There are moments in this novel that are truly wonderful, and anyone who is a fan of a post-apocalyptic diversions should add this to their list - but for me this didn't quite rise to the level of Peter Heller's The Dog Stars or Cormac McCarthy's The Road, both of which I would recommend reading first.

Rating: 3 of 5 (maybe better for post-apocalyptic fiction fans) First Read Date: May 2012
