Ride The Snake Road is a science-fiction book by Leroy Wow that describes the happenings of a world after the slow pox plague. Beamo Roamer, a man who ran digger crews, leads a gang of outlaws across a deadly road called the Snake Road to obtain a rumored treasure. Beamo comes across the treasure map in the most abrupt of circumstances. He is then captured and makes an offer to lead the Sawbird gang across the Snake Road to Area 51, where the treasure is suspected to be hidden.
LeRoy Wow describes the current state of the Heartland and the dangers that lie in wait en route to the treasure. There is the case of mutant angels, monsters who cut off the nose and lips of their abductees, phantasms, and other dangerous adversaries. Will Beamo be able to lead the outlaws safely across the Snake Road? Will there actually be a treasure lying in wait for them? What are Beamo’s plans after the treasure hunt?
There are several positive aspects of this book. First, I love the systematic arrangement of details, as the writer’s narration follows a set order. The story has a sequence, and the events happen chronologically. For example, we see that in how the events proceeded from Roamer's capture, then to the journey across the Snake Road, and the proceedings of the hunt afterwards. I also like the fact that the book is not needlessly lengthy to the point of being boring. This book was exceptionally well-edited. I could not find any errors.
There are a few negative aspects of the book. One of the things I didn't appreciate about this book was the compact nature of the plot. There was just so much going on at a particular point that I found it hard to follow the storyline. This is seen in the later chapters, in the battle against the phantasms and co., and with the TR-18 DEM.
I rate this book five out of five stars. The book has a wonderful storyline, and as previously stated, there were no boring repetitions. Although I had some difficulty deciphering some of the messages in the book, it was not an issue that affected my rating.
I would recommend this book to anyone seeking insight into what is rumored to be contained within Area 51. This book would also suit readers who find joy in exploring adventures through reading and have a very strong imagination.
