    One thought on “Wander”

    1. So it s hard to be objective when the author is a close friend But I ve hated stuff written by friends, and I ve loved stuff written by people I can t stand I ll try to avoid spoilers for the most part, and this review is unplanned so might ramble.Wander is a smart, dark and As much as I hate to use atmospheric to describe anything because it doesn t tell you anything Atmospheric In the sense that as world building goes, its up there with the best With Wander s macabre and morose rule set, and s [...]

    2. I m a big fan of using a rating system Some sites magazines use a 5 point scheme others use 10 or 100 uses 5 and that is usually enough for me However With Wander, i m not going to be able to give a score I ll say what i liked and didn t like but a score feelswrong If i wanted to give a low rating, i d feel bad my friend wrote this book and i wouldn t want to ruin his day by insulting something that he has worked on for years Conversely, if i give a 5 star rating, there may be some whisperings o [...]

    3. I will start this stating the most amazing fact about this book I couldn t get a moment of boredom the pace is fast and there is always something happening Wander takes you to a world where all your nightmares can be real, she is alone and always afraid, with good reasons, the world have been consumed by an illness where the basic emotions anger, fear, sorrow and happiness took control of people and destroyed their humanity She is a survivor, and will keep it that way, even though she will have [...]

    4. WOW What an amazing book First time author, Lewis Bright Rees, has really done an amazing job with this The story takes place in a post apocalyptic United States, following the protagonist, Wander, as she survives the wilderness of what s left of the world Through her travels she encounters a variety of well written and very fleshed out characters that help her realise what she s been looking for and help her on her journey to finding it.The story takes you on many twists and turns along the way [...]

    5. Wow This book is amazing I ve had the privilege of reading it and was blown away by the world and characters that were so carefully penned here It s really rare that an author can make you not only attached to the story and characters in a story, but also allow you to experience as a character inside a lifetime of a story as someone else I was so captivated by the details in this story A true post apocalyptic foreshadowing This story has a macabre and eerily dark and raw tone to it, and while it [...]

    6. It s fantastic This book is absolutely enthralling I got caught into it from the first page to the very last The characters are well developed, and they feel so real that it made me laugh, cry, weep and much with them Wander and Dagger s friendship touched me in profound ways and it was amazing to see how it survived fiercely I loved every word and every minute I spent reading it I highly recommend it

    7. I loved this book so much It is a great read, there is so much in it It s a tale of friendship and loneliness, love and hate, fear,vulnerability, hope, courage, strength The characters are well developed, they change throughout the book, grow up and learn from each other, and the fact that there are very few of them never gets boring The world it is set in is really well described and totally terrifying The writing style is great and it is a real page turner, in fact a few times I had to stop on [...]

    8. Wander isn t just her names what she does But giving your real name to someone in Lewis s world makes them human, gives them a piece of yourself that you can t afford to give up to truly survive what everyone going through Wander spends every sunrise to sunset just surviving, barely sleeping and barely living Her character is complex, when we first meet her she can t remember how to talk much as she hasn t had a real conversation in years with another human but her mind is sharp We learn bits o [...]

    9. Is the story thrilling YesAre the characters interesting YesIs the Writing good Yes even with the frequent typos This was a great book, which I thoroughly enjoyed Then why, you ask, are you only giving it 2 stars Two Reasons 1 Some of the violence is overly gory Like, shudder in disgust, have bad dreams gory I m totally cool with having slashing and killing in a book, but there is such a thing as TOO graphic.2 The language Sure, throw in some curse words Fine It fits the vibe and world in the bo [...]
