With the Internet Apocalypse series, Wayne Gladstone has consistently reflected a deep understanding of contemporary American zeitgeist in a way that nobody else has, and this conclusion does so even more.
I've described Book 1 of this series as cleverly muffled and internalised, and Book 2 as much louder and clearer, like having cotton wool taken out of your ears. Reports on the Internet Apocalypse takes that clarity and broadens it - this is a much bigger and more important story th With the Internet Apocalypse series, Wayne Gladstone has consistently reflected a deep understanding of contemporary American zeitgeist in a way that nobody else has, and this conclusion does so even more.
Reports on the Internet Apocalypse takes that clarity and broadens it - this is a much bigger and more important story than I would have believed when I got to know and love the brilliant mess of a protagonist at the beginning of the series. It's a call to arms of a different kind, somehow showcasing the power of love and the power of people without ignoring or simplifying the realities that make such optimism so difficult.
This isn't some Facebook gif of hopeful, simplified words written over a picture of an inspiring sunset, nor is it limited to a biting, cynical social and political commentary with no further value. Rowsdower's narrative stint, and the introduction of aspiring producer and Gladstone ally Margo Zmena, allows for a perfect blend of hard-boiled detective fiction, thoughtful reflection, quixotic irreverence, an organic love story, and an intricate mystery with a beautifully explored message: The Internet is People, and We're Still Here.
Now that the series is complete, I can confidently say that, as far as I'm concerned, it's the most relevant and accurate contemporary story of my time. I cannot recommend these books highly enough. Nov 14, Chris Brown rated it it was amazing. The story of the Internet Apocalypse has grown and evolved to a satisfying conclusion. Gladstone has been focused by the events of the previous two novels and given a target to set his sights on. Awesome ending to the trilogy!! I just flew through these all in one day. They're wonderful, and im going to go see what else Gladstone has written and buy it all, because an epic author like this deserves my money!!
Oct 18, Maura rated it it was amazing. This is the third and final book in the "Internet Apocalypse" trilogy. The first two books were narrated by our eponymous protagonist, Gladstone, and followed his search for the internet which has mysteriously gone away. Reports on the Internet Apocalypse starts with a new narrator, former special agent Rowsdower.
While the internet is still mostly gone, Rowsdower is searching for something else-- Gladstone himself, who has disappeared. In this international noir novel, Rowsdower joins up with a This is the third and final book in the "Internet Apocalypse" trilogy.
In this international noir novel, Rowsdower joins up with a new dame, a film producer who, in a nicely meta turn, has optioned Gladstone's journal for a film. They traverse the globe meeting new characters, following the clues of the missing internet, dodging explosive terrorist acts, stumbling into profound human truths and of course, hunting down Gladstone.
The reason I love this trilogy is that they are not only three unique, gripping stories, but also tremendous critiques and explorations on the digital world most of us inhabit.
Reports continues this, giving the reader exquisite moments of sagacity to pause and ponder. In following Gladstone through the books, from drunken wreck, to Internet Messiah to a man finding himself, his strength again in Reports, we're given an exceptional character study of addiction, loneliness, loss and ultimately, love.
The conclusion to the epic tale of the missing internet was extremely satisfying, reminding us that these books, like the whole of the internet itself, are ultimately about the people who comprise it. Jan 15, Sebastian H rated it really liked it Shelves: cracked-writers. And when that happens we sit and stare at it outside of ourselves. We categorize it and put it on a brightly lit shelf, where it can never surprise or control us again.
