Book Review | Agents of the Internet Apocalypse by Wayne Gladstone

Posted on Updated on

Agents of the Internet Apocalypse1797702773 is the second book of the Internet Apocalypse trilogy by Wayne Gladstone, so if you haven’t read the first one (Notes from the Internet Apocalypse) you really should. While you probably could get away without reading it, you really should read it first.

Two reasons:

  1. It’s also a really good book, and
  2. Book 2 will make a little more sense.

Agents of the Internet Apocalypse starts a few months after the end of book 1 with Gladstone in a mental hospital recovering from his breakdown at the end of the first. We’re quickly transported to from New York to LA where a now healthier Gladstone continues on his quest of finding the internet and attempting to reconnect to his ex-wife.

I found there was a distinct change of style between the two books. Whereas in Notes from the Internet Apocalypse he spent most of it drunkenly stumbling his way around New York in his quest of finding the internet, in the sequel he settles down into a somewhat calmer approach. Not that it put me off at all, just they were noticeably different.

Overall I enjoyed the whole story. It certainly kept me guessing, and threw a hefty curve ball in at the end to keep me wanting more.

This is probably just my preference but I enjoyed the first book a little more than this one. That said, I still thoroughly enjoyed book 2 and am eagerly awaiting the third.

TL;DR Version

Well worth your time to read them.
