To say the least, Christine Brodien-Jones and The Owl Keeper blew my socks off. After turning the last page I was left with a feeling of hope for humanity. It sounded so original.
There are too many unanswered questions about the setting and too many coincidences in the story. Thought there also might be a little fantasy sprinkled in to keep things going.
The story has an ending of sorts but left much unanswered and unfulfilled. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
At night, he loved to wander in the light of the 2 moons, and dream of caring for owls, who were also creatures of the dark. The citizens are assigned to jobs and lives and the once beautiful land and wildlife is nonexistent. One night he finds a girl under his tree.
There is some pretty creepy and dark stuff but probably nothing beyond Roald Dahl-level. He loved the stories she told him about the world before the Destruction—about nature, and books, and the silver owls. I was an interesting story. The fact that some one can be allergic to the sun rays kind of /5(7).
Christine Brodien-Jones, really why not??? While some elements can be seen in other novels and the other idea of an overcontrolling government is common, the reasons and motivation behind this particular government's action is refreshing and original.

She is spunky, full of life, and very impulsive.
He loved the stories she told him about the world before the Destruction—about nature, and books, and the silver owls. He didn't mind that she was small and scruffy--her feathers gave offlight, a luminescent glow that silver owls were famous for. But....................I loved it.
Maxwell Unger has always loved the night.
