🌟 I always try to stay positive whenever I read a book and focus on things that I liked, my rants reviews are usually saved for books that made me angry and this does not apply here. This is a good book and I enjoyed it, I think it will appeal more for dog owners and dog persons. Due to my allergy for dogs, I can not say that I related much but it still was a solid book nonetheless.
🌟 The first thing that I noticed about this book is the writing style, I honestly liked the prose, it was poetic and unique and due to the many fantasy books I read, this was definitely different and refreshing. I think it is one of those cases where the author has his own writing style and not like other typical styles in most books.
🌟 I am a big fan of well written characters and I can not say that the characters here were not well written, the problem was just that there are few people who lives in the world and fewer that we get to meet in the book, this made it kind of bland and the best parts in my opinion were those involving secondary characters and their interactions with the MC.
🌟 I think there is a sadness to post apocalyptic stories and that’s why I don’t read much of those. I could touch this in this book and the settings, characters and prose helped in getting it right. The story is written like journal entries and that also gave us an idea about the contrast between the before and after.
“Dogs were with us from the very beginning. And of all the animals that walked the long centuries beside us, they always walked the closest. And then they paid the price. Fuck us.”
🌟 Summary: This is a case of me not the book’s fault. I think the book has great writing and characters although it could have used more of those. I can recommend this for fans of the post apocalyptic genre and if you are a dog person then that surely will enrich your experience reading this one!
