It is important to note that the female character, one of the strongest elements of the book, is refreshingly enlightened. For many, (certainly for me,) the book is really about her in so many ways. She stands for women who are strong, different, and escapes the cookie-cutter predictability of the passive, mistreated female character in need of rescue. Serra shows that women who have faced trauma, contrary to popular belief, don’t simply curl up with a copy of “The Bell Jar” and give up. She shows strength in the face of adversity, and peace when confronted with violence. She is an extraordinary role model for young females all over the country who face abuse alone, and, like so many boys, have no role model who might set an example of how to piece their lives back together, rather than be overcome by bitterness. For me, it was a truly cathartic experience to read about her as she repaired her inner-self and re-defined her character as something beyond her suffering.
This is a delve-in book, unafraid to get its hands dirty, probing deep into vast issues of violence, bravery, loyalty and endurance. It shows fearlessness and tackles these subjects head-on. It really is a book that anyone could enjoy, and it offers crucial answers to so many of today’s problems, is populations of disillusioned youth continue to swell, in a culture where strong male role models and clear guidance for the process of growing up has become increasingly obsolete. It really does create an alternative micro-society, where young men take morality into their own hands, and suddenly the solutions to so many of our culture’s social problems seem absurdly clear. A real eye-opener for anyone, whether experiencing this type of internal tempest first-hand, or standing on the outside, watching its effects.
I genuinely believe that this is a vital read for young people, as it offers guidance in a void where society is failing. A true inspiration, gritty and honest, shattering sides and boundaries, not to be missed.
Something about the setting stirred up memories of Lord of the Rings, while the themes are much more Lord of the Flies.
Keeping up with the adventure of the characters meant I read the book in a couple of days and I would imagine that this readability and the themes touched on in the book would make it really appealing to teenagers... those looking for a tribe and searching for meaning. The characters are strong and easy to identify with... we know whose side we're on!
I also enjoyed the references to a deeper relationship with nature - it made me want to get outside and reconnect with the land that has become so distant to us nowadays!
A recommended read for all ages... especially teens. I hope there's going to be a sequel!
As any great novel, Tribe Warrior sends the reader into a thought provoking empathetic journey where smatterings of the character's reality personally resonates. It is for that reason I get a sense of the sheer potential this book has for touching, and beginning the motions of change in the lives of vulnerable young adults. It also provides a vivid opportunity for adults alike, who want to reconnect with the tribulations of adolescence and our ancestral history. Couple this with the grounded connection with nature throughout the novel, it serves to inspire and draw readers back to the outdoors to experience and connect with nature, and those around us.
Well worth a read, I didn't put it down, and will be passing it on to friends.
A new look into the mind and setting of a culture not to different from our own, set in a time which could easily be past or future, the exploration of multiple story lines affected by issues of freedom and desertion takes writer Caspar Walsh into new territory from previous works, however his themes are ever-present.
A book with it's own religion, setting and world is able to create vivid story lines which is beautiful, creative and a great read for all ages and genre lovers.
I love this book and strongly recommend it to those who love the Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings worlds mixed with Kerouac story telling. My only criticism is that some may find the book a bit short, which is nothing but a complement to the story Walsh designs. G
