Notes: I very much loved this book, it was beautifully rendered! Well deserving of 5 stars!
Lyrical and beautifully written prose throughout the whole book with a moving story about a girl struggling to survive in a world devoid of humanity. I’m so glad that I decided to ask for the arc of this on Netgalley. This is from an author I’ve never even heard of before, but rest assured I’m definitely invested in this author now. I should note that I’m also unfamiliar with this publisher, but am more curious about them as this is my first book read by this publisher, I do believe.
The Bear is a survival story. It’s a story about war, death, and the strength to move on when all you want to do is give up and surrender to the dark side. It’s a story about characters and people who have become the last two human beings in the world, an old man and his daughter. The story focuses primarily on the daughter, and how she grows up to become a strong, independent woman…alone in the entire world.
I found that you did have to suspend belief for some of the story, but otherwise it was very well done, and I greatly adored the writing and prose in this book. It’s well deserving of the five stars.
Until next time,
