" I shouldn't be surprised they don't want my help. My life has been one rejection after another"
Bernie lives on the edge. And he has for the better part of his life. Standing up and defending the vunerable has gotten him in trouble. He's borderline at school. He's learned to find comfort being alone. Well, he's got his cloud of chaos which he cannot control. And his friend Suzie, and a guy from school, Lennie, although he's not sure if Lennie is his friend, he's just another misfit.
A little girl, Emily, decided that she was going to school to find Sara. All she'd have to do is remember how to get there. But as children are wont to do, she goes out, and wanders into the forest.... Everyone seems scared to be in the forest, except Bernie, he likes the quiet. He knows most of it....out to The Edge....and nobody goes there.
This powerful little story talks about taking risks and being brave, something everybody, even gods/ goddesses in LeBel's world are reluctant to be. Maybe we should be a little more like Bernie....learn to distract the chaos, and trust our instincts
People who know me learn very quickly how much I want everyone to read The Universe Builders: Bernie and the Putty the first book written by Steve LeBel. The originality of that work has won numerous well- deserved awards. This novella is a prequel to that book, and soon there will be a sequel to that first book. I, for one, can hardly wait!
In their world, there is no death. The gods live forever. That is unless something tragic happened. The gods are not immortal. They can be hurt — even killed. So, if they want to live forever, they have to be very careful. That meant avoiding any unnecessary risks. And the one thing all gods agreed on was this: the safety of their world ended at the edge of their town, where the woods begin.
For me I loved being able to see how Bernie,Lenny and Suzie first gelled as a small group of friends. Getting to see how they view each other and treat each other despite their parents views was entertaining. Seeing these all powerful gods cower at the ideal of leaving town was an enjoyable twist. It's interesting to me that with all the technology and animals they bring back to their world they still refuse to bring anything to help them explore their own world.
I don't have any real complaints.
No real romance with the main character as of yet. This story was mostly young godlings.
If you enjoyed The Universe Builders: Bernie and the Putty you will enjoy getting to know Bernie and his friends even more and find out how they ended up friends. The perfect little story to lead into the next book in the series. I can't wait to read more about Bernie and friends.
Lesson learned in this small novella: there's nothing to fear but fear, and when one follows one's heart, courage is rewarded with success.
A very easy read, leaving me satisfied... Until the next installment, which I can wait for a little bit longer now.
Congrats Mr. LeBel!
I like Steve Lebel's writing style, and have added him to my 'Read all the Author Writes' list. I'm looking forward to the next 'Bernie' book, which is coming out soon, I hope.
This is definitely a good read for kids, though I enjoyed it, too. (I'm not a kid, though!)
