Essential Maps For The Lost – Deb Caletti

Standard

Yes I know, it’s been far too long and I should be posting up more blogs on here but I’ve been a little busy writing three books, blogging for Diary Of A Young Writer  go check it out click here and here. I also have two jobs, one of which is working in a bookshop, though I feel like I have a dozen jobs really (I mean who has holidays these days?). So I’m sorry, I’ve not had much time to read and I’ve been attempting the classics, which dear god, some of the classic fiction is really tough to get through.

With that being said, let’s get on with it. Continue reading

 My Thoughts:

This short novella is one of those deep thinking, thought provoking, big what if’s, sort of story. I don’t think there are any sequels, and this novella ends on a cliffhanger of sorts (a satisfying one but still a cliffhanger -C.L.)

The beginning of this story is a little bit complicated, you don’t really know what’s going on until you start to turn more pages, but then that’s the whole point of this story.

Written from the point of view of Marlon Smith, the story starts with Marlon on a beach in the afterlife. The afterlife is a virtual reality, when the people of Earth die they are immediately uploaded to this virtual world… Continue reading
