The Wake

A post-apocalyptic novel set in 1066 by Paul Kingsnorth

Review for The Wake

I have been reading The Wake quietly aloud to myself on my porch near a wood half the world away from it's origin, and strangely, I hear the birds more as I make sense of this new language, the winds more, the trees bending - and I wonder if they are all leaning in, as I am, to enjoy the immense thrill that is this book. I hesitate to finish it, but somehow I doubt this book will end. I think it is alive, which is much too rare a quality.
