4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtfully written - Thought provoking, 13 Jan. 2012
By 
This review is from: Far North (Paperback)
Set in an unspecified time in the future, in a world that has disintegrated through wars and disease - who was fighting who is not really clear and does not really matter - this story portrays settlers struggling to survive in the 'Far North', where perhaps the effects of what has happened has been initially less, but where survival is a challenge anyway, and desperate refugees have made it even harder. The main character Makepeace sees an aeroplane which becomes symbol of hope for her and sets off to find where it came from. The story successfully blends flashbacks to episodes in the past while describing what happens to her as she encounters other survivors. The story is well written and exciting but takes time to reflect on Makepeaces thoughts as she travels and has some great lines: "Everyone expects to be at the end of something. What no-one expects is to be at the end of everything". Enjoyable and thoughtprovoking.
