Sarah Broadhurst's View...

Overcrowded, dilapidated and corrupt, America Pacifica's population believes their island home to be the last place on earth habitable by humans. As in all post-Apocalyptic novels the outlook is bleak. What sets this one apart is the passion and determination of the heroine to beat the odds. Suitable for teen readers and equally inspiring for adults, I highly recommend it.

If you like Anna North you might also like to read books by Alden Bell, Cormac McCarthy and China Mieville.

Synopsis

America Pacifica by Anna North

Hundreds of miles off the frozen coast of what was once California is America Pacifica, where those who fled the dawn of the new ice age have tried to recreate their former home ...America Pacifica is an island hundreds of miles off the coast of California - the only warm place left in a world in the grip of a new ice age. Darcy Pern is seventeen; her mother has gone missing, and the novel details her quest to find out the truth about her disappearance - a quest which soon becomes an investigation of the disturbing origins of America Pacifica itself, and its sinister and reclusive leader, a man known only as Tyson. America Pacifica invites comparison with the work of Margaret Atwood and China Mieville, but also with Cormac McCarthy's The Road, for its post-apocalyptic scenario and the touching relationship between Darcy and her mother, and the Stieg Larsson trilogy for its implacable central character who is determined to uncover the truth.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
