Review: Damnation Alley

User Review  - Goodreads

DAMNATION ALLEY might best be termed bubblegum science fiction. The creatures that inhabit Damnation Alley are straight out of B-movie material. The story is bereft of subplots. Hell Tanner is not a ... Read full review

Forget the movie. Read the original book. Two guys make the trip across a post-apocalyptic America to deliver a life-saving vaccine. Or something like that. It's been a while since I read it. But I do ... Read full review

I liked this book, which I did not expect from the first few pages with the protagonist. Compulsively readable and short enough to gulp down, like Fast and the Furious made it with King's the Dark Tower. Read full review

If this had been published in the last 10 years or so I would have rated it a bit lower. If it had been published this year, I'd probably rate it even lower . . . . I tend to like post-apocalyptic ... Read full review

User Review  - Goodreads

It was good. Many of the set pieces were great. For example the stopping in Salt Lake was excellently rendered. Some of the dialogue was great while other wasn't.

A good read overall, but short on length and content. You can definitely see how works like this influenced modern movies and games that deal with the post apocalyptic theme. A lot of the narrative themes and character templates carry over across media. Read full review

User Review  - Goodreads

Rather enjoyed this. A story of a motorcycle gangleader, Hell Tanner, turned driver in a postapox world. Charged with the task of delivering a cure to the plague to Boston from California. What fallows is a road story across the wastelands. Simple and straight forward, it was a great read. Read full review

A Mad Max-styled dystopia with a world ravaged by plague. Now a city/state has run low on the cure and has requested help from a neighboring enclave. The only problem: to get the medicine to the needy ... Read full review
