Glorious Plague

Glorious PlagueGlorious Plague by Karen Heuler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A very weird novel about a very weird apocalypse, beautifully written. The pace is slow — Heuler is less concerned with plot than with how her characters adapt to their strange new world of gods, angels, devils, and a lack of municipal infrastructure — but the emotional payoffs are authentic and worth the effort. I’m also convinced there’s a deft political allegory lurking just beneath the surface of this novel, but that’s neither here nor there. Read it for the unique experience it offers. I’m certain you’ve never read an apocalypse tale quite like this one.
