Such A Novel Idea


Wanderers - Susan Kim, Laurence Klavan I received a copy of this book via the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Wanderers picks up in the aftermath of Wasteland -- the tyrannical leader has been overthrown, but so has the source of food. The people left are hungry and desperate. And then, of course, a natural disaster comes and makes everything worse.

Our protagonists, Esther and Caleb, are left with no choice but to lead a group (hence, the title) of wanderers in search of a mythical place that will provide all the things they need: shelter, protection, hope, and a future.

I really enjoy books where people are searching for that elusive mecca - the sanctuary that will solve all their problems. I think my obsession began back when I first watched Land Before Time, but ever since this story line has always caught my attention. I think one reason I enjoy it so much, is the place which all hope is banked on, never seems to be exactly what you'd expect.
