A decadent rock star. A deeply religious radio host. A disgraced scientist. And a teenage girl who may be the world’s last hope. From the mind of Chuck Wendig comes “a magnum opus . . . a story about survival that’s not just about you and me, but all of us, together” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

NOMINATED FOR THE BRAM STOKER AWARD • ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The Washington Post, NPR, The Guardian, Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Polygon

Shana wakes up one morning to discover her little sister in the grip of a strange malady. She appears to be sleepwalking. She cannot talk and cannot be woken up. And she is heading with inexorable determination to a destination that only she knows. But Shana and her sister are not alone. Soon they are joined by a flock of sleepwalkers from across America, on the same mysterious journey. And like Shana, there are other “shepherds” who follow the flock to protect their friends and family on the long dark road ahead.

For as the sleepwalking phenomenon awakens terror and violence in America, the real danger may not be the epidemic but the fear of it. With society collapsing all around them—and an ultraviolent militia threatening to exterminate them—the fate of the sleepwalkers depends on unraveling the mystery behind the epidemic. The terrifying secret will either tear the nation apart—or bring the survivors together to remake a shattered world.

In development for TV by Glen Mazzara, executive producer of The Walking Dead • Look for the sequel, Wayward, now available!

I agree with another reviewer. The political message was loud and clear. When are authors, actors, athletes and even reporters going to learn, you lose half your audience with your bias opinions. I finished the book because I did care about the characters but I felt it was about 20 hours longer than need be. I was very bored with the repeating of scientific mumbo jumbo. Another novel bites the political propaganda dust. Smh!

Definitely should have read the reviews before purchasing this one. Pretty lame book, seems like this one should be in the political fiction genre. Could care less for the moral superiority complex of the authors ultra liberal communist ideology oozing through snarky, disconnected political ranting.

I finished this book the day before news first broke about the corona virus. It's a really well told story, but sad and insidious. I can't stop thinking about it

Great story. It’s hard to say you “enjoy” a story with this degree of hardship and loss but it is great writing and I always enjoy a story that makes me stop and think more about it..There will be reviews from others who take exception to this political depiction because it hits a little close to home for some. It is a work of fiction but if you see yourself or your government in it, take heed. Maybe read A little of Martha Nussbaum’s non-fiction book on the “capabilities’s approach” would be my advice. One more thing, I just finished this as the coronavirus is spreading and it certainly does not recognize nationalism.

It was haunting. The narration was excellent. MY biggest problem with it was the excessive profanity. Every character. Every sentence.

Great listen! The book was good. I was into it from start to finish. Narration was great as well. Highly recommend.

Full of SJW propaganda garbage. The president is female (shocker) with a Republican nominee with characteristics of our current president. None of it had any relevance on the main plot a it felt like both subtle and unsubtle forcings of a toxic ideology. You would probably like it if you're a NPC liberal.
