    Jeremy Robert Johnson seems to pride himself very much on how esteemed author Chuck Palahniuk spoke of him and his collection Angel Dust Apocalypse A dazzling writer Seriously amazing short stories and I love short stories Like the best of Tobias Wolff While I read them they made time stand still That's great I myself have never read anything

Foot of a blackened obelisk Now DC is looking awfully empty Life on Earth is pretty much coming to an end All of which leaves Dean with a single uestion What now The answer to that uestion will take him on an uncanny voyage across a newly nuclear America wher. Extinction Journals picks up where the The Sharp Dressed Man At the End of the Line leaves off For those of you unfamiliar with that story it can be found in Mr Johnson s short story collection Angel Dust Apocalypse Without giving too much away we meet Dean in the last days before World War III a young man who believes that he can survive the aftermath of a nuclear war if he s wearing a suit made of cockroaches As the story ends Dean is proved correct Extinction Journals follows Dean around as he makes his way through the nuclear bomb ravaged wasteland of what was once the USA He struggles to find food and water all the while wondering if his suit will out of desperation and hunger turn on him Along the way he meets a new god borne out of mankind s collective unconscious Neither Dean nor the reader is sure whether or not he s hallucinating but considering he just survived a nuclear war we have to give him some leewayUltimately Dean meets other entomologically enlightened individuals who are struggling to put some sense to this brave new world At that point they must decide how life will exist post humanity or if it will exist at allJRJ has a knack for characterization even if those characters are a bit twisted Dean is a nice enough guy but one has to really be out there to conceive of fashioning a suit out of cockroaches in order to survive a nuclear war And his descriptions of the nuclear wasteland are convincingly real making you shudder and uestion Dean s desire to live to see itThe story was way too short While readers don t need to be familiar with the short story that preceded this novella it definitely helps Adding it as a preface while driving up the publishing costs would have enhanced the reading experience for new readers of JRJ s workI also had a feeling of repetition between Dean s encounters It was as if he were stumbling upon the same old irradiated buildings he wandered into earlierLastly I was hoping for of an exploration of the relationship between Dean and his suit I really couldn t get the sense that the symbiosis between man and roach was evolving until the very end Maybe evolution itself works like that Rather than gradual changes we get abrupt do or die situationsWhile I enjoyed this book I feel that for the reasons stated above it falls short of JRJ s previous works Newcomers should pick up his earlier works first before coming here Fans of JRJ s work will still want to add this to their collections

You can survive a nuclear blast All you need is some luck and maybe a customized business suit coated in cockroaches It could work At least that's what Dean believed before the bombs actually dropped and his suit led him to murder a Very Important Man at the. Jeremy Robert Johnson s Extinction Journals begins with a true bizarro scenario a man in a suit made of cockroaches accidentally devours the president who is dressed in a suit made of twinkies But by the end of the book being dressed in a suit of cockroaches almost seems normal As the protagonist wanders through the bizarre surreal landscape of post apocalyptic America he encounters other survivors other people who saw what was coming and prepared a woman in steel toed boots and an iron apron a man encased in cement a man wearing his neighbor s skin The images in the book are sometimes serene and other times haunting and nightmarish Its only fallback the end of the book seems very rushed It feels like a lot should have been discussed that there was a longer life to the story than is written But despite the odd pacing Johnson s prose is graceful and clear and the book up to the sweet hopeful ending is a brilliant read and well worth your time
