Um livro pós-apocalíptico com um pensamento presente de Mad Max em toda a viagem. O personagem tem direito a um "Get out of Jail Free Card" por todos os crimes passados e futuros, se fizer uma viagem de LA a Boston num cenário de verdadeiro pesadelo, para tentar salvar uma população à beira da extinção. Mas o seu "egoísmo selectivo" de sobrevivente, mais ao estilo de Riddick que de Max vai-nos surpreendendo ao longo da viagem construíndo uma leitura muito agradável. ( )

Bad-ass biker must cross a post-apocalyptic US in a heavy armored truck. Promising start... but disappointing result. A flat story with no remarkable features. The trip itself is schematic, talking about "big creatures" and "a destroyed city" but barely giving more. Not even insinuating it. The protagonist is cool at the beginning (in the style of Snake from the "Escape from New York" movie) but he hits the same note during the whole book. ( )

If you are going to read just one book by Roger Zelazny, don't let it be this one. Not up to his usual standards. Interesting from the standpoint of melding two fascinations of the times (biker gangs and post-apocalyptic survival), but the plot is silly, the execution not much better, and it fails to develop any compelling characters.
