Rootless is an epic tale of a young man named Banyan. It is an extraordinarily unique, Mad Max-like world made for a wildly fun and exciting setting. I couldn’t seem to put the book down as I flipped through its pages.
Chris Howard is a visionary writer with fresh new Ideas. Howard managed to connect me to the characters, making me want to cry when they cried, even making me wish they could have death when things got bitter and hopeless, and making me leap for joy when they struck back.
The book stuck with the popular genre of teens rebelling against a threat that thinks killing people is for the greater good, yet at the same time it also separates itself from those other popular titles.
I wouldn't exactly recommend this to every audience due to its violent and mildly mature content, but this is a sure title for the ages. I can’t wait to get started on the book’s sequel, “The Rift”, and will be waiting patiently for Chris Howard to finish the series with its third and final title.
I have had a few jobs in my life that I didn't enjoy: detassling corn, working in a small motor parts factory, framing pictures, serving food, and rejecting bad eggs in an egg factory. Today, I take part in a book club for teens and I love every minute of it.
