The PackBradley Victor and Floris live with wild dogs on the dark forgotten edge of a devastated city Haunted by memories and abandoned by society t. Just plain didn't like this one I thought it read like a first draft so many sentences seem disjointed and incorrectly constructed And there is rapid overuse of the word for at the beginning of sentences For of course no Zone could contain his appetite for space For when the trucks run out etc It's as though the author wants them to have some dramatic impact but the overuse prevents this from happening Maybe rapid is the wrong word but it's one of those things that you start to notice and then every time it happens again you cringe It's one of those stories that doesn't really explain itself Something has happened to the world there are Zones and Invisible Cities and people shunned by society; but no real reason as to why There is very little world building but things are obviously immensely different The characters don't seem to go by their real names and again there's no real explanation as to why except for Skreech who is feigning life as a boy but everyone else seems to get this big end of chapter moment when they reveal their name Again it's never explained why people are like this Why do they hide their names or give themselves other names Why is that such a big deal Another unexplained plot line is that Bradley can talk to his dog and I'm still yet to figure out if this is just Bradley thinking his dog is replying or if they do have some sort of telepathy going on it's not really explained Or if it is I missed it There's a lot of boring and lengthy discussion between characters that just seem to stop the narrative in its tracksThe novel is interspersed with chapters of random flashbacks that immediately stop the action of the narrative Our protagonist Bradley and his dog have been captured by this street gang of dog fighting kids led by a maniac and we break away for pages and pages about Bradley's life with his family before whatever happened to the world happened They are explained as Bradley's dreams but a character experiencing a dream does not take up an entire chapter Ditto for storytelling As in characters in the narrative sitting down to listen to an Old Woman tell them stories They don't do this once they do it often Again it slows the story to a crawlIt also relies on one of my least favourite narrative tropes where the weak girl in the gang is the one who gets kidnapped and the boy has to save her I get annoyed reading on and on about Bradley's adventure to find and save his friend Floris but I would rather be reading Floris saving herself Maybe that's just meAvoid this one took me forever to finish it Very disappointing I expected a lot from the author with his credentials
