#11....2012 Alif the UnseenAlif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

...is a tour de force of storytelling!!

Young computer hackers plying their trade in an unnamed Middle Eastern Police State...risking life, limb, and motherboards...all in the name of Freedom. Then....this book appears...an ancient tome that wasn't supposed to exist. The Thousand and One Days (as opposed to The Thousand and One Nights)....full of odd tales...or metaphors. Or, is the book really a complex computer program that recognizes individuals...without the aid of ISPs or code names? I'll never know what else to say about this one...except WOW! Go...get a copy when it's published....you'll be sitting open-mouthed. like I was!! (

***this was a Net Galley***

that sound interesting..might buy it for the library..we have a lot of kids that are into fantasy.

I can't remember if I told you or not..but there is a book that I highly recommend..Any Normal Day by Mark Kram,Jr.
it's a terrific book and can't recommend it highly enough..
