    One thought on “Roadsouls”

    1. My 3 star ratings is purely based on the fact that I just don't really like magic realism. I keep forgetting this and trying to expand my reading repertoire - but its really just not my thing.If this is your thing this is probably a much better book."It was no good, loving a stray kitten in a world of dogs."

    2. Overall I liked this book, although every time I thought nothing else bad was going to happen to Raim, I was wrong.

    3. Roadsouls is a fascinating and wonderfully different kind of fantasy novel. As Suzy McKee Charnas noted, it's not about royalty, war, and magic as a weapon. This book is character driven, and works as deeply with the characters as any I have read. The protagonists, Duuni and Raim, are both highly capable and deeply flawed. Duuni is an artist channeling her work as though from elsewhere, and this is where the book is the most "fantastic". Raim is a highly capable man, but blind, caused when he be [...]

    4. I fell into this book, its characters, its world. I fell into it and I didn't want to leave. It is a beautifully told, beautifully felt story of two people, each broken in their own way. It reminds me of Ursula K. Le Guin, which is one of the highest compliments I can offer. The world is invented and contains a background thread of fantasy, but it is also a real place, in the way that all good books bring us to visit real places and people that come to matter to us. I recommend it very highly.P. [...]

    5. I enjoyed this book for its original concepts, its storytelling hook and the cast of diverse characters who were warm, humorous and poignant, simultaneously.

    6. I appreciated the characters stance that if adults were going to abuse them then abuse needed to be a topic that children were allowed to talk about.

    7. It never goes quite where I expect, but the ending fits perfectly. Raim and Duuni are wonderfully complex characters. The villain(s) are appropriately villainous.
