The decline of a great aristocratic family, told against the backdrop of a rapidly changing England. A quintessentially English novel and the most daringly beautiful prose ever written.
I’m feeling the dystopian novel fatigue in a big way. (By “fatigue” I mean complete and utter burnout.) But because Williams’ The Chosen One was so captivating, I’m willing to put my apocalypse hang-ups on a shelf for her story about a group of teens who discover that their place of protection is actually a prison and the lives they’ve been leading are lies.
What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D
