5 stars for The Starfish’s Grove by Nihil Vanite #bookreview #fantasy #dystopian #adventure

Title: The Starfish’s Grove

Author: Nihil Vanite

Genre: Dystopian Fiction, Fantasy Adventure

Book Blurb:

The Pendulum is dying. Andra is missing. Save her, or the time may cease to pass.

A young man named Eberhard sets out on a magical journey to a post-apocalyptic, dystopian reality, where he must complete a vital task. He must rescue Andra. If he fails, the world will fall apart.

Meanwhile, his friend and roommate, Frederic, wants to help him. Although, all he can do is wait until it rains…with clock hands.

Join them in their amazing adventure, listen to Starfish’s voice and, whatever urges you to, do not look for The Pendulum.

My Review:

A stunningly original concept that will have readers reconsidering their understanding of the space-time continuum. Once again readers must tip their cap at truly original concepts. It is unlikely there has ever been a book written like this before.

Ebi is my fave character. He runs the gamut of emotions as he deals with everything under the sun. This is an incredibly detailed account of a world that surpasses simple understanding. The world-building done here is nonpareil. The intricate detail of the various locations is eye-catching.

While this is a hard book to compare to others, there are some things that appeal in a similar fashion. Fans of the Dune film with Sting from 1984 will enjoy the conceptual nature of this work. This book may appeal to fans of the C.S. Lewis work about Narnia. Truly a thought-provoking book that will leave a reader wondering what it means personally to them.

My Rating: 5 stars

Author Biography:

Who am I? I'm a dreamer. I often take a walk, put on a pair of headphones and immerse into thoughts. Thoughts about time, the world, the people living in it. During each walk, there is a moment when a completely absurd idea comes out of nowhere, and when it does, I take out a notepad and write about it. At home, I prefer a typewriter to a computer. The sound of typing is definitely one of my favourites. It pleases me and fills me with inspiration.

I write because it's the best way to express myself. It's both my hobby and my dream job.

Apart from writing, I like to cook, play tennis and I'm a chemistry student....and I'm definitely a cat person.
