The little of it comes with every ending, collecting in the heart of you like rainwater in a barrel. ’ ~The Book of Koli is the second nove in the Rampart trilogy, by M.
Another Book of Koli is a post apocalyptic novel set in an alternative world where humans are now the biggest prey.
Ultimately, it ’ s not long, I ’ d say only a few chapters, before you get used to this narrative style, and I even stopped noticing it.Something I have found and admired with Carey, is that his books are always thought-provoking.
Even, after thinking about it, I knew that the crude unrefined language fits within the paradigm of this novel, because in world where the very trees are trying to ill you, well shit, who has time to teach you spelling and grammar?
Yet, behind the simplistic language, we see that Koli wasn ’ t necessarily a simpleton or always ignorant; a lot of his inner monologues actually held so much wisdom.~ ‘ So that was our life, and it felt like nothing wil ever appen to change it.
But it ’ s when you think such thoughts that change is most like to come.
Because life is othing but change, even when it seems to stand still. ’ ~This is a nove that is not eve a post-apocalyptic dystopian, but Carey skilfully incorporates the sci-fi genre too.
Like I aid, Carey is fantastic at writing genre-blending, thought-provoking stories.Without going into too much detail, I want it ’ s importan to mention that in the illage of Mythen Rood, those who can successfully activate a piece of tech are known as a Rampart, which in turn also made them leaders of the illage.
first half felt somewhat YA-ish to me at times, which was natural considering Koli ’ s age, but at he time I found myself craving for the story to take a darker, more complex turn.
As we reach the second half of he novel, it elt like this whole different ball game.
Stil I ’ m ot oing to reveal any major details about who Monono is and how Koli came to find her, because those chapters are a joy to discover for yourself, but what I woul say is that Monono was unquestionably one of the most delightfully vivacious characters I ’ ve come across.
ome of them were about me. ’ ~Overall, The Book of Koli is a captivatin, delightfully entertaining, and thought-provoking post-apocalyptic novel.
