Doomsday plus 10 years - and Earth is a living horror.
The last battle burned the planet to a charred husk, and civilization is nothing more than a few scattered tribes...like the surviving corps of elite killers who served the old dictatorship....or the sadistic bands of motorcycle hoods, prowling the ruins for victims...or the slavers, mutants and madmen preying on those who hope to rebuild the future. Only a brave handful like Logan and his family, who are the hunted in a world of vicious predators, hope to save the strange and bloody land that is Logan's World.

"good old classic"
loved every chapter, almost reads like a script for a great action movie, I wish there more original books like this one, thank God for Peter Hamilton!
"Right next to Elmo's World"
Only if the friend showed an interest in Logan's Run. Otherwise it lacks purpose.
I read it when it came out. Perhaps the most interesting thing was the follow and immersion into Logan's Run world after the old world fell apart. I would recommend it with the provision that it be understood that it's limited. It is not as fun as Logan's Run. Also another super bad handyman is hack.
I went all in trying relive something. I left feeling like I made it out of a wasteland. That being said-no. It's not worth the time for this.
Both follow-ups could have been better. Logan's World at least followed up decently to Logan's Run. Run was the most fun.
"Carries on from Logan's Run"
If they liked Logan's Run, yes. Just fun 1968 popcorn fun, but sexist, which is part of when it was written.
Not sure, it's not a deep book, but has a generally plausible story, maybe say a star wars book, just some fun.
I do feel more involved in the story, maybe I feel as though I am Logan the hero!
Yes when the baddies were winning, or a tragedy happened to Logan or Jessica. I did enjoy the way this future world held together surprisingly well as a unique construct for the author.
"Logan's Run, reprised"
This is book 3 of 3, which I'm reviewing as a set. I enjoyed the movie (and somewhat, the TV series), so I was drawn to the audiobook. I wouldn't consider Logan's run good writing, at all, but I found it entertaining, none-the-less. The characters are extremely shallow, the plot contrived, and there are serious flaws in the whole concept. Still, if you have good feelings about the movie, you'll find this series tolerable.
The first book in the series is the movie (with some differences). The second two books in the series continue the story. Book two is essentially a "return of Logan" that quickly breaks down into a haphazard search for his lost wife ending in a somewhat disappointing battle royal. Book three is an alternative reality 'cheat' to put a different twist on the first book.
The performance is not good. The reader talks very slow which tends to sap the energy out of the story. However, I found that my iPod allows me to increase the speed (x2) which made it very comfortable with minimal distortion in only a few spots. I would totally recommend you do the same. I find it hard to beleive that the producers couldn't do this for us!
All-in-all, if you are listening to the series for the sake of nostalgia, then you'll probably have a good time.
