Book Review - Nation by Terry Pratchett

Nation Nation by Terry Pratchett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After a great wave kills everyone in his island Nation, a young boy/man by the name of Mau must learn to rebuild - both the Nation and his beliefs. Helping him along the way is a young "ghost girl" or English girl named Daphne and a variety of other people who show up on the island looking for survivors. This book is wonderful. It is the type of book that I love to read best - it makes you think, laugh and cry (sometimes all at once.) It is not beautiful in its imagery (Grandfather Birds regurgitate their food all over) but in its philosphy and characters. I am going to recommend this to adults and children alike.
