Review: All the Birds in the Sky
By Charlie Jane Anders
Genre Adult Magic Realism/Dystopian/Fantasy/Science Fiction
Magic and science meet in this story of a boy and a girl and their strange lives.
When Patricia was six years old, she found a wounded bird.
Another book for The Tournament of Books. Another great book. While I felt a lot of this one sort of went over my head, I really liked it. I'm not crazy. I got the whole story line etc but the deeper meaning and subtle hints at something more flew right over my head, I'm sure.
Still, as far as stories go, I loved this one. I was fascinated with the story and the lives of these strange characters. The book felt like a mash up of Harry Potter and The Magicians with a dystopian/science fiction twist. It wasn't at all what I was expecting and I was pleasantly surprised.
Dang! Sadly, I find myself at a loss for words on this on. Just know that I really liked it and would highly recommend it.
Should you read it
I just said you should. ;)
