  • Awesome Journey

    This book is a masterpiece. The tone Hoban keeps the whole way through is very deep and philosophical, but also so relatable. I really enjoyed seeing the world after the Bad Time through Riddley's eyes, and I loved trying to piece together the Eusa stories to try and work out how the world was before the apocalypse. I also think the language used in the book is awesome, and adds so much extra to the story itself. Riddley Walker without Riddleyspeak would be great, but with it, it easily became my favourite book of all time. There's so much satisfaction when you realise the etymology of the words he uses, but also, having to decode the language as you go forces you to slow down and really think about what is happening. The people in Riddley's time think slower, so having to think slower yourself, along with the incredible imagery, makes the whole experience completely immersive. I love this book. And I was very tempted to just go straight back to the beginning and read it all over again as soon as I finished it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
