Incredible writing, truly, and nicely edited (so many books are simply not edited well nor proof read these days - those i just discard because if the writer doesn't care enough then i surely won't.) for the most part. Will keep eyes open for this author.
I can understand why some reviewers were impatient with it. This kind of writing isn't for everybody. But if your taste runs more to Faulkner than Hemingway then you'll like this book a lot. The writing style resembles Eliot Pattison - subtle and deceptively slow, allowing the reader to see glimpses of things but not laying them out explicitly.
I liked it a lot.
I say "apparently" because these disasters are only hinted at. The first seems to have been the sudden and jarring depletion of the world's natural resources, after which came a nameless plague. Earthquakes rock a landscape barren of trees, and the people live beside a river in which all the fish have long since disappeared. In fact, the only animals seemingly in existence are wild coyotes, rabbits (which are the people's only real source of food, other than the abundant "spuds") and dogs bred more for protection than for pets. The rabbits' fur also provides the only halfway decent clothing, unless someone is lucky enough to scavenge some rare and ancient "store-bought" apparel. Many simply cover themselves in pieces of plastic, or go naked.
The story revolves around Frost, who was a young man when the world began to die and is now the benevolent leader of a ragtag band of survivors, including his granddaughter Noor, and her younger brother Will, who hear only whispers of the mythical "good times".
Tensions rise when Langley, the cruel and greedy taskmaster of another group, who keeps his followers loyal by keeping them addicted to homemade heroin, or "skag", begins to seize the property and possessions of those around him, including women and children. Frost, a man of peace, is ultimately forced to make a stand against the ruthless tyrant.
There are no zombies here, no vampires, and no little green men, and the story is all the more compelling for it. Because as I read Nyberg's words, I couldn't help thinking over and over again, this could actually happen. A frightening thought, I know. And yet I couldn't stop reading it.
This is a sad tale, and deeply affecting, but well worth your time. It's full of tragic, convincing characters that will haunt you long after you put the book down. Since Tomorrow is a wonderful read, and Morgan Nyberg is a masterful, eloquent storyteller.
