eBook Review: The Old Man and the Wasteland

Yesterday, commenter Tim H. noted that we must be reading the same books; he then suggested the Old Man and the Wasteland by Nick Cole, which just happens to be the eBook I've selected for today's review.

Cole tells the tale of a nameless Old Man; old enough to remember the nuclear holocaust 40 years before. Having become too old to be particularly useful to his gang/tribe/enclave of people living in the desert (formerly known as Arizona,) the Old Man wanders off into the 'forbidden zone' looking for one last big scavenged score to restore him in their good graces. Adventure ensues.

This was a very quick read and the device of the Old Man loving his tattered copy of the Old Man and the Sea was not too hackneyed. I really enjoyed it and I think Tim H. did too.
