everyone he has ever known Mau finds himself totally alone Until he meets Daphne daughter of a colonial Governor and the sole survivor from a shipwreck The. 2016 Re read for Sci FiFantasy book clubSeriously does anyone else want to kick the Nobel Prize committee for not giving Pratchett the award I wish this novel had been around when I was a kidolder reviewPhilip Pullman is known perhaps infamously for His Dark Materials trilogy which has been attacked because of Pullman s atheist beliefs as well as the endorsement of atheism that book represents Pullman isn t the only writer to have been attacked due to his view on religion and I doubt that he will be the last one Of course he will undoubtedly be attacked this year because of his new book about Jesus and his buddy ChristI find it strange that there was barely a peep about the books until the movie came outThe problem as I see it with such fame as Pullman receives is that people get hot and bothered either condemning the work or justly defending the work So hot and bothered that books like Nation get overlooked In many ways this is good for no one is trying to ban the book In other ways it is bad for the book doesn t get the fame it deservesTerry Pratchett is a humanist writer of fantasy fiction He wouldn t call his work literature but many of his later novels either is literature or rests on literature s mutable border I ve been a huge fan of Pratchett since Wyrd Sisters made me laugh during a very tough time in my life Thanks Mom for giving the book to me Nation is the best thing that Pratchett has ever written Nation is LiteratureI m not sure if Nation was inspired by the Tsunami in Asia andor Pratchett receiving his medical news In truth I don t really care I do know for Pratchett himself has said it that Nation demanded to be told and he stopped other projects to write itSupposedly a children s book Nation tells the story of Mau who loses his whole Nation his whole tribe when a tsunami hits his island home Eventually Mau discovers Daphne a ghost girl who was washed up by the same wave What then follows is part Robinson Crusoe told from Friday s point of view part Swiss Family Robinson part Island of the Blue Dolphins and part religious and philosophical debatePratchett s novels work because each of his characters is like the reader or like someone the reader knows His characters are human and contain one or aspects of everyone Even Pratchett s most heroic or inhuman characters such as Carrot Rincewind or Death have human traits that effect how they act remember Death really likes cats Here in this book Pratchett presents multiple answers to the uestions Why do bad things happen to good people if there is a just god and How do you feel afterwardsBoth Mau and Daphne have tragically lost family Both of their reactions are human yet different from each other Both uestion the idea of god or in the case of Mau gods and faith Both arrive at different answers More importantly Pratchett doesn t preach he doesn t persuade He just wants the reader to think the conclusion is left up to the reader This makes the book totally honest for there is no clear cut answer to the first uestionBesides engaging the idea of the god debate Pratchett touches on another part of creation where do stories come from Are stories than just religion Is religion than story This comes as no surprise to the reader who has read the last two Science of Discworld booksDespite the tragic and bittersweet events of the story Pratchett s trademark humor including footnotes is present in full force Like his characters Pratchett s humor works because it contains an element of human truth As the following exchange showsDon t look backWhy notBecause I just did Run fasterThe tale of Mau and Daphne is an adventure tale of two teens surviving the aftermath of a natural disaster They most rebuild They must outwit cold blooded killers and hungry cannibal as well as the odd Grandfather Bird and tree climbing octopus It is a thrillingly story that closely honestly and fairly examines faith science and all in betweenOlder ReviewWhen Nation came out I was a bit disappointed that it wasn t a Discworld novelThen I read itIt s the best thing that Pratchett has ever writtenThe one thing about Terry Pratchett as Lawrence Watt Evans pointed out is that the only real difference between his adult books and his children books are the age of his protagonists There is no reason why an adult shouldn t treat this as a bookIt s a book everyone should readI suppose if Pratchett had the reputation or high profile of Philip Pullman or J K Rowling then there would be a huge cry of how this book should be snatched from the hands of impressable children before they learn how to think for themselves Maybe there is already such an outcry but I haven t heard anything Nation reminds me a bit of Island of the Blue Dolphins with much thrown in Pratchett addresses the big uestions of whether or not there is a god and if there is a god why do bad things happen Bad things happen in this book right from the start Pratchett deserves credit for not sugarcoating what happens but for also dealing with the deathes in a way that does not alienate or upset readers okay upset them too muchWhat Pratchett presents for the reader is a book about what extactly faith and life are When one reads Pullman it is uite easy to figure out where Pullman stands in regards to religion It is not easy to figure out where Pratchett stands One character has lost his faith but may or may not be talking to the gods Other characters have faith Neither character is seen as stupid or evil because of a belief or lack of belief In many ways Nation is a mature novel about faith than Pratchett s
