    Swan Song is like The Stand. Boy's Life is more like IT.

    Gave 'Boy's Life' to my Mum, she is 72, and she loved it. My all time favourite is 'Swan Song'. Best post apocalyptic novel of all time, sorry SK (You're still the best author)

    I'd have to agree; Swan Song is one of my favorite books of all by anyone.

    Just finished my first reread of Swan Song. Been over twenty years since my initial read. The book is corny as hell, reads like a very early work, and a straight out homage to King's - The Stand.

    But dammit! I love the characters and their fates still managed to get me choked up from time to time with either joy or sadness. Even if the delivery of those moments was often clunky, McCammon has the elusive gift of making me care about his characters. And in the end, that is the most important thing.

    Ordered The River of Souls from B&N today with one of my Christmas gift cards. In little over a month, I'll be settling down with Matthew in his newest adventure. Can't wait!

    I read a few of his years and years ago. I remember really liking Swan Song. I think he also wrote one called Mine that was pretty good.
