My Tantalizing Teaser:
"He's always got a opinion does Nero, an he's real smart too. I figger if only we could unnerstand crow talk, we'd find he was tellin us a thing or two about the best way to fix a roof."~ Unknown page on my Kindle, Blood Red Road by Moira Young
I can't wait to immerse myself more in this story. Saba is already an endearing, interesting narrator, a mixture of thoughtfulness and implied ruthlessness. The writing definitely takes getting used to - there are no quotations marks around dialogue and many intentional spelling and grammatical errors to reflect Saba's lack of education - but I don't find it too off-putting.
