This book went so far over my head, it’s in the thermosphere.
Let’s chat about it, shall we?
This is a GREAT book. The quality of the writing is delicious. Absolutely gorgeous storytelling, however, I have to rate the book based on my reading experience.
For me this was a good, to very good, reading experience. If I had the mental capacity to understand it more, I am sure my rating would have been higher.
I think what it boils down to is that this just isn’t my type of book. I am fast reader. Additionally, I am a polygamous reader. I read multiple books at the same time, quite quickly.
As annoying as this character trait is, it is the only way for me to do it. I have tried to take my time, or just read one book at a time, and it puts me into a reading slump.
Therefore, deep books steeped with a lot of philosophical meaning tend to be wasted on my brain.
I just don’t take the time to really sit back and assess the messages that the author is trying to convey. If wish I could. I envy those of you who are able to do that.
The Vanished Birds is a lyrical science fiction story of various relationships connected across space an time.
I think a lot of readers will be able to get so much out of this. Even I can tell that the quality of this story is far above average.
As a character piece, I think this holds a lot of value, and I’m not afraid to admit that it is beyond my comprehension.
I want to encourage everyone to read this synopsis and if it sounds intriguing to you, please pick it up. The synopsis is true to what is in the book, so I think it will draw in the appropriate readers.
With intelligent, subtle narrative, futuristic concepts and beautiful writing, for many scifi readers, I anticipate this being a 4-or 5-stars! Maybe that will be you!
Thank you so much to the publisher, Del Rey Books, for providing me with a copy of this to read and review. I appreciate it so much and look forward to seeing other reviews for this one!
