It's been nearly two years since Yorick Brown, the last man
on Earth, set out to cross North America with his pet monkey
Ampersand (the only other male mammal left alive after the
plague of 2002 killed everyone on the planet with a Y chromosome).
Now Yorick and his companions - government Agent 355 and bioengineer
Dr. Allison Mann - have finally reached Dr. Mann's laboratory
in San Francisco, where she can begin trying to unravel the
secret of Yorick and Ampersand's survival...
of Truth is the fifth collection in the Y: The Last
Man series. In this book Hero finally comes to her senses
and sets off to track down her brother... although those voices
in her head may be a slight hindrance. And Yorick is tempted
to cheat on his girlfriend - who may not even still be alive.
Will he give in to his carnal desires, or is he much stronger
I was glad that Yorick got the chance to act more like a real
human. His interaction with Beth was really believable. It
also helps him to see that he is mere flesh and blood, and
not some holy second coming - as has been the impression in
the past. And, when it is discovered why Yorick and Ampersand
may have survived the plague, this helps to further bring
Yorick's head down from the clouds - and he suddenly realises
that it's all just down to luck and not some intervention
by his maker.
reintroduction to Hero was welcomed, although I did feel that
she got over her "sickness" a little too quickly.
I thought this was going to be a plot device that they would
hold over for use in the future.
