The Electric Kingdom
By David Arnold
The electric Kingdom is super weird, different, twisty and mind blowing. This books takes you on an amazing journey!!!
When a deadly Fly Flu sweeps the globe, it leaves a shell of the world that once was. Among the survivors are eighteen-year-old Nico and her dog, on a voyage devised by Nico's father to find a mythical portal; a young artist named Kit, raised in an old abandoned cinema; and the enigmatic Deliverer, who lives Life after Life in an attempt to put the world back together. As swarms of infected Flies roam the earth, these few survivors navigate the woods of post-apocalyptic New England, meeting others along the way, each on their own quest to find life and love in a world gone dark.
In this unique book, the author, Shirley Marr took a wild dive off the traditional layout for stories and wrote the entire book in second person. Being in second person, you are immersed into the story as if it was happening to you.
It tells the story of a little girl who has just immigrated from another country. Her adventure is not like other stories, her story is normal… with a small exception.
The story is mainly about just trying to fit into a society you never wanted to be in.
This book immerses you until you are done. I couldn’t put it down!
