The Book of Koli by M.R. Carey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've been enjoying M.R. Cary for quite some time now and I jumped on the chance to review his new series through Netgalley.
So was it everything I might have hoped? Yes! And maybe.
At first, I realized, belatedly, that this had all the hallmarks of a YA novel. He's done some good YA in the past, so I settled into life in a dystopian future with ancient advanced tech, trees that like to hunt us, and provincial life that takes a major turn for the worse.
Standard fare, mostly, with some really fun and cool aspects that just BEG to be explored. And we do explore them. In fact, I had the best time when we got to *spoiler spoiler ipod-not-ipod spoiler*. From then on, I just chortled and had a great time. Of course, I had to get there first. Nothing too onerous. And I have to say I had a lot more time with this one than I've had with MOST of a long line of YA SF novels, so kudos!
Can't wait to read the next!
