Book Reviews~ The Island of Lote
An amazing read!
I highly recommend it as a fantasy book for adults. The quality of writing throws out the belief that just because a book is written for a younger demographic (or indie) it is allowed to have holes in the plot and one dimensional characters.
Young adult novels are stories that reveal and examine those moments in our adolescences that everyone has. This is why I believe them to be so popular. No matter where you were born everyone goes through puberty.
In The Island of Lote, Milo’s journey from childhood to young adulthood is physically bench-marked. She experiences emotional turmoil and growth in each setting. from the realization that she is just experiencing a tiny part of the world while in the new neighborhood to being thrown into an even more unfamiliar environment in which she has to navigate and adjust to. This is where the experiences of both the young and old meet.
I think it is wonderful that a book so fantastical can still be filled with realism and basic human emotions. That is the most important quality of a good story and the defining moment for a good storyteller.
