it was amazing
bookshelves: dystopian, mystery
Read in January, 2011

The cover of The Raven's Gift declares that it is "A gripping post-apocalyptic Alaskan nightmare...". Gripping is right. From the moment I picked up this book, I was held captive by the story. Details of a life in the Alaskan tundra, that I will never experience, was equal parts fascinating and enraging. While the story of John's struggle for survival, after the world he knows is ending, was edge-of-my-seat exciting.

The story jumps to different points in time a fair bit. Normally, this is not a technique that will endear me to a book, however, in the case of The Raven's Gift, I think it worked. The glimpses of the past help to give the reader a bit of reprieve from the survival struggle of the present, as well as remind us just how much was lost.

Marilyn Belsham Hi Don,
I plan to post a full review next week. Penguin asked me not to post it until the 25th. I'll be posting it on my site (alotoflovesreviews.com) and I'll copy part of it here as well. I really enjoyed it. :)
