All the Birds in the Sky

Childhood friends Patricia Delfine a witch and Laurence Armstead a mad scientist parted ways under mysterious circumstances during middle school But. This is one weirdass book A good kind of weird but it definitely isn t for everyoneAll the Birds in the Sky transcends genres refusing to find its place anywhere is it sci fi Paranormalfantasy Dystopianalternate world Magical realism In truth it s some of all of those A uirky and strange blend of science and magicI can t really liken it to anything else which makes reviewing hard but is ultimately a huge compliment I love to be able to say I have never read anything like this and I have definitely never ever read anything uite like this Damn I don t even know how much I should say about itThe story follows two characters Patricia who is a witch and Laurence who is the epitome of a science genius building his own two second time machine in middle school Strangely though the rest of this world feels like contemporary realism with Patricia s witchiness and Laurence s genius defining them as outsiders and causing them to be bullied and punished by their parents We stay with Patricia and Laurence through their childhood which is why this is sometimes being labelled YA and into their adult life Behind it all there lingers the creepy Mr Rose a shadow across the novel His unsettling presence brings a darkness to the story as we long to know what he wants from our protagonistsStylistically the book feels like magical realism weaving elements of fantasy and sci fi into everyday life I can t uite decide if it s about science vs nature or the intrinsic overlapping of the two so I ll let you be the judge but it is an interesting tale about the power of both nature and science wrapped up in a surface story of witches and climate change Like I said weirdPatricia as a witch who can talk to animals is an embodiment of nature Laurence as a technological genius is an embodiment of science These two seem like complete opposites and yet their lives are forced together often at their reluctance For a shortish novel All the Birds in the Sky is packed full of interesting ideas and symbolism as well as a nice little nod toward the idea that the fate of the world lies in the hands of the rebels the outsiders the nonconformists It has an almost epic feel to it Strange but compelling I would recommend this to readers who are looking for something differentBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Pinterest

Ans to secretly repair the world’s ever growing ailments But something is determined to bring them back together to either save the world or end it. Self awareness paradoxically reuires an awareness of the other A magical savant a super genius the world on the brink of eco apocalypse possible ways out or are the solutions as dangerous as the problem and young love What s not to like Laurence Amstead is your basic pre ad tech genius indulging in minor projects like inventing a two second time machine you can wear on your wrist and developing a chatty super computer in his spare time He is beset of course by the usual school bully sorts Patricia Delfine has similar issues based on a different way of being different Seems she can understand what animals are saying birds in particular She also manages a nifty bit of astral projection to follow a particular bird to a particular god like if delphic tree that gives her a riddle Fortunately they both attend the same school Patricia tries to engage her fellow outcast but he gets dickish on seeing her gift and wastes the chance at a connection Thankfully he thinks better before long and and extends a hand The usual sort of stupid parents see Laurence s social struggles at school as his fault rather than the result of a hostile environment and exile him to a cartoonishly awful military academy Charlie Jane Anders from SF WeeklyThere is a particularly dark hearted guidance counselor at their school who seems to have it in for both of them although it is not entirely clear why He persuades Patricia that the special tree wants her to do something dire Patricia is offered a chance to attend this book s version of Hogwarts But the offer comes at a price She will have to go immediately leaving Laurence in a bad situation What s a young witch to doThe story soon time warps ahead a decade plus Patricia is part of a family like witch pod Lawrence has been recruited by a super rich visionary with big plans The two groups personify the magic vs tech conflict fantasy coming up against sci fi The clash is set against the backdrop of a world that is falling apart or rather one that has been abused to the point of apocalypse Where the wand meets the wormhole is in their different approaches to how to deal Then there is the relationship between the adult well somewhat adult PL Will they line up on opposite sides of the impending crisis The on again off again nature of their connection continues which complicates things They take on some larger philosophical uestions made less theoretical by the tech notions on display things in our world are just the shadows of things in other places Laurence said forming the thought as he spoke I mean we always suspected that gravity was so weak in our world because most of it was in another dimension But what else Light Time Some of our emotions I mean the longer I live the I feel like the stuff I see and feel is like a tracing of the outline of the real stuff that s beyond our perceptions Like Plato s cave Patricia said Like Plato s cave Laurence agreed I don t know Patricia said I mean we re grown ups now Allegedly And we feel things less than we did when we were kids because we ve grown so much scar tissue or our senses have dulled I think it s probably healthy I mean little kids don t have to make decisions unless something s very wrong Maybe you can t make up your mind as easily if you feel too much You know There is a lot of creativity on display here particularly with the farther out tech elements and the softer edged magical bits This was probably a gimme given the author s previous main gig as a founder of io9 a website about science fiction science and futurism It is only one of her many activities Anders left io9 to dedicate herself to novel writing in 2016 Her stories have appeared in a range of sci fi and fantasy sites and publications and story collections She has a Hugo award for her novelette Six Months Three Days Definitely check out her site for detail on her prior work The imaginary bits are definitely a strength although I thought they fell a bit short in the logic of their tactical application The primary limitation was the YA ness of a story billed as adult It feels perfectly appropriate for there to be a YA tone in the early part of the book as the characters are pre ads But once they were grown up at least physically it felt to me despite the deadly tech being tossed about the body count and the sexuality of the characters that the YA feel remained Characters do engage in meaningful consideration of moral choices but they do that as pre teens as well so that did not represent that much of a change There was one hanging chad here that seemed to have readers in a tizzy Patricia has a cat that was left out of the proceedings once she skips from heading off to witch school to being all grown up Enough readers raised this that Anders wrote a story to patch up the gap You can catch Clover on torcomOverall I was impressed with the creativity and energy of All the Birds in the Sky combined with the eagerness to take on some big subjects but was not as impressed with the relationship elements as they continued to feel 8 bit when 128 bit was called for Still a fun read It probably helps to be a teen or millennialReview
