Meine letzte Rezension The Book of M von Peng Shepherd
Peng Shepherd's debut novel was the best audiobook I listened to in a while. The story is set in a present-day reality in which people seem to randomly lose their shadows. However, what they really lose are all their memories and soon the world as we know it is turned upside down. The book closely narrates the story of four characters whose paths cross closely in the narrative's progression. With such an apocalyptic setting, Shepherd creates a compelling yet foreboding prospect. In the face of today's world-wide Covid pandemic, this book reads like an invitation to ponder about how we can react to a reality that has never been lived through before. How can we move on in the face of insecurtity and uttermost uncertainty? How to create a new present with regard to what we have lost in the past? Even though Shepherd published "The Book of M" two years before the spread of Covid 19, her message is now more important than ever. This story will stick with me for a long time and ened in a plot twist that left me unable to breathe for a few seconds. Hopefully, there will be much more of this author in the near future.
