24 posts | 12 read | 14 to read
Die Koors het byna almal gevat. Maar nie 13 jaar oue Nico Storm en sy pa nie. Wanneer hulle 'n nuwe samelewing vestig met 'n groep swerflinge - en dit Amanzi doop - is die dorpsmense gou verdeeld, en verdediging teen die plunderende motorfietsbendes raak al moeiliker. Dis nie lank nie, of moord kom inderdaad ook na Amanzi ... In Koors vertel die volwasse Nico Storm die verhaal van die moord op sy pa. 'n Aksiebelaaide nuwe rigting vir Deon Meyer!

Having now read this book in both English and the originally written language Afrikaans, I even more maintain that this is my top favourites read of 2021!

Although I originally read this book in English, Fever, and absolutely loved it, I have to read it in the language it was first written in, Afrikaans, which is also my mother tongue.
It is such a phenomenal story, I will probably read it a few more times in my lifetime. Absolutely 5 star book!

One of the best books I've read in a long time. Absolutely gripping and a true page turner.
Written in 2016, it's a dystopian novel of the world being attacked by a virus that wipes out 95% of the world's population. The book, based in South Africa, focuses on the 5% of the population that is left and how they rebuild society.

This was eerie... fever from a (no joke here) coronavirus wipes out 95% or so of the world population. The survivors have to rebuild from the ground up. It is Walking Dead without the zombies essentially. Although I found this too verbose in spots, it is an interesting take on the post apocalyptic genre. The ending was satisfying but somewhat abrupt considering the majority of the book is a long, slow burn. Overall I enjoyed it.

TerriGreen Sounds like this sci fi may hit a little too close to home! 🦠 2y

And the second author I saw at the lit.Ruhr today. Deon Meyer. Talked about his new book, not a crime at all and about life in South Africa. 🤗

Deon Meyer's post-apocalyptic novel (translated from Afrikaans by K. L. Seegers) is an epic coming-of-age tale set in South Africa about Nico who's torn between two fathers (Willem and Domingo) and although the murder device doesn't really come off due to an anti-climatic pay-off and the framing device means that Nico is never in jeopardy, the story is well-researched, believable and had me completely engrossed from start to finish.

Trying to decide if I should keep at Fever (it's good, but depressingly post-apocalyptic and I don't know if I care), or abandon to review something else. What would you pick?? (Tagged options in comments.)

Surprise #bookmail! I was absolutely sure I hadn't ordered anything, and a box from Goldsboro Books was an exciting mystery! Did I win something? Turned out to be an unexpected gift from @Simona Thank you! I'm not sure I have read any South African literature before, so now you are expanding my reading horizon. 😊

Simona This is my 'thank you note' and surprise book-mail is always a good mail and nice to received. Enjoy in the book and summers days 😘 5y

I requested this one bc I'm a big fan of Meyer's Benny Griessel series - love the way he evokes contemporary South Africa. But I didn't realize this is a standalone! Set in a post-plague future South Africa, where survivors work together to create a utopian settlement. Super intrigued! Pubs 9/5. #julybookmailforme

Marchpane @silentrequiem the author is quoting ideas from this other excellent book: 5y
Ericmanciniwriter Woahhhh - brain 💥. You think they got the idea from Sapiens? Sounds spot on 5y
Marchpane @Eamann most definitely! It's listed in the bibliography (kind of unusual for a novel to have a bibliography, huh?) 5y

#TBRtemptation post 4! #BEA17 edition! Young Nico and his father, Willem, are one of the few left in South Africa after a virus wipes out the country. Willem founds Amanzi, a community to build from the ruins, and a diverse group of survivors. Challenges both inside and outside increase. This is Nico's recounting, and his hunt for the murderer of the person he loved most. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎
