Originally written in Japanese in 1994 & translated into English in 2019, this book still manages to feel fresh & relevant. On an unnamed island, in an unknown time objects simply begin to vanish, where eventually the islanders can no longer recall the item or it‘s purpose. Our narrator, a novelist is terrified that one day words will begin to disappear not realizing there could be much greater worries. Not perfect but very thought provoking.

Day 1: The Giver
I love recommending this book. It is easily one of my favorite books. I couldn‘t resist using a background with a red sled.

I started listening last night for #AAM and WOW!!!! It‘s really good. Mysterious and unsettling, sci-fi? dystopian? fantasy? Not sure how to classify this book but I‘m in!!

AmyG I am reading this, too. The story is wild. I‘m really enjoying it wondering where this story is heading. 10h
Cinfhen I have less than 2 hours left @AmyG it‘s FANTASTIC!!!! 10h
Cinfhen Question: in the print format is their a clear distinction between the actual story and the narrator‘s novel she is writing. Because on audio it‘s the same narration and reader without any kind of indication @amyg 10h

Soubhiville I have read her before, so I‘m excited. I‘ll be reading 10h
TrishB I need to get to this one! 10h
Cinfhen I‘ve only read one other book by her @Soubhiville and they are SO DIFFERENT 9h
Cinfhen I think you‘ll like it @TrishB 😄 9h
sarahbarnes Agreed - I‘ve read both of those by her. So different and I loved them both, too. She also has a short story collection I enjoyed 8h
AmyG Yes, there is. Spacing and type are different. 8h
Cinfhen I might try that one @sarahbarnes because I don‘t love short story collections unless they‘re more like interconnected stories- you might like the recommendation @Megabooks ☝🏼 7h
Cinfhen Ahhh, that‘s probably helpful @AmyG Anyway I have 20 minutes left on the audio. It‘s very good 😊 7h
Megabooks I have this on audible, so I‘m going to go with it. Book buying ban!! 7h
Cinfhen You might find Revenge from your library or Hoopla @Megabooks 🎉 7h
AmyG I am hoping to finish today. 🤞🏻I need to know what happens to R! 7h
Soubhiville (Should have said I haven‘t read her before. It will be my first. 🙂) 7h
Cinfhen Just finished @AmyG I have a few quibbles but really thought provoking!! Ohhh, then you‘re in for a treat @Soubhiville 😃 7h
AmyG @Soubhiville This was a good author pick. 7h

This book surprised me. I‘m not sure how it ended up in my kindle library, but I‘m glad it did. I do enjoy a good end-of-the-world pandemic/apocalypse book and the twist in this one was really interesting. I laughed, I cried, and I enjoyed following along with Harper et al.

The setting is a dystopian near-future where animals have been eradicated because of a virus, so the populace has begun to raise humans as a source of meat. The protagonist works at a processing plant, and is having some problems with his work and family. This novel has some truly horrific scenes that demonstrate man‘s capabilities for compartmentalization and violence toward people and animals. This is not a book for the sensitive reader.

Reggie Oh man, I let 2 coworkers borrow this and one of them this week said he hasn‘t eaten meat yet. Lol I loved this book. 17h
