Where to begin? So much happens within the pages of this short novel. However it’s slow pace made it difficult for me to pick the book up every day. This story was interesting, but too slow to hold my attention long. I’m usually interested in poetic writing when it comes to novels, yet it’s poetic language felt forced and not natural. Not natural, you may ask? It’s unnatural dialogue for its character could have been purposefully used to display the futuristic side of the story. Nonetheless, I could not see past the novels language/dialogue to enjoy the story being told.
The cover of the novel is very simplistic, clean, and eye catching. The cover does have symbolic meaning to the body of the text. However, it adds a mysterious aura for readers to wonder exactly how birds relate to the title of the novel.
