Wow, what a start to this year's roundabout. I have never heard of this book or this author, but I will definitely be looking out for her in the future.

I'm a huge fan of science fiction and dystopian novels, but this future doesn't feel that far away. A perfect example of the 'slow apocalypse' where the world doesn't end in a bang, but it a quiet whimper. For in this future, there are few wild animals left and only one flock of terns thought to still exist. The main story is set against their last migration, as a small fishing boat attempts to follow them - for some its a chance to find one last catch, one last haul of fish to make their fortune. But, for Franny, the journey is about a lot more - forgetting, redemption, freedom and a chance to keep her secrets forever.

This tugs at the heart strings on every single page. Whether you're an animal lover weeping over this denuded world or whether it's Franny herself, and her sad life, that gets to you. And I actually found it quite a hopeful book - the author doesn't give any answers or explanations, but the last chapter does lift the spirits and the determination that this can't come to pass.

Thanks for sharing this marvelous book.

When the book arrived I recognised the cover and the title, I think I read about it in a magazine, can't remember which one. I hadn't read this author before, so I didn't know what to expect.

The story was much more melancholy than I expected it to be, the further I went through the story, the more weepy I became. However, it was quick to read and I think the author balanced the transition from Franny's past and present very well.

I would read this author again but would prefer a more upbeat story next time.

Brilliant, just brilliant, and such a roller coaster emotionally. I can honestly say I would never in a month of Sundays have picked this book up to read, absolutely not! That is why I value this roundabout so much; it has so often taken me out of my comfort zone to my benefit. Thank you valpete.
