City of Orange
City of Orange | David Yoon
2 posts | 1 reading | 2 to read
This imaginative and affecting new novel is beloved, bestselling, and award-winning author David Yoon at his finest: thought-provoking and heart-piercing, by turns funny and challenging, and at all times deeply human. A man who can not remember his own name wakes up in an apocalyptic landscape, injured and alone. He has vague memories of life before, but he can't see it clearly and can't grasp how his current situation came to be. He must learn to survive by finding sources of water and foraging for food. Then he encounters a boy--and he realizes nothing is what he thought it was, neither the past nor the present. City of Orange is a novel that is both harrowing and heartfelt, charged with a speculative energy but grounded in intimate character study. It is a novel about coming to grips with the worst that has befallen us and finding our way home again.

#ARC #PublishesToday I‘m sorry to admit, I bailed on this one - a man awakes with amnesia in a post apocalyptic world. Premise had promise and writing was good but this story just didn‘t hold my interest. Every time I put the book down I had no desire to pick it back up.
I tried to speed read towards the ending, but even that didn‘t work.
4 bails so far this month. Two more books to go….. @TheAromaofBooks hope you‘re enjoying your vacation 💕
