Multi-genre, multi-volume author, Matthew Fish introduces us to his dystopian sci-fi story, The Bittersweet Song of Canary:
Around two-hundred years have passed since a great cataclysm struck the Earth. A young girl named Canary is part of a settlement attempting to rebuild and learn about the past. While dealing with a human life that seems to have devolved over the long passage of time, Canary desperately dreams of escaping to the stars high above to a mysterious place called Haven. However, her dreams may be her downfall.
I found this story about a post-apocalyptic, primitive civilization on earth to be very interesting. The struggle for survival was anything but guaranteed, the remnants of the previous high-tech civilization were useful. The author did a good job of setting this scene and allowing the people to scrap and scrape for their livelihood. The dialogue was enjoyable, the action was very dramatic at times. I love the First Person POV, when it is done right and Matthew is great.
I give The Bittersweet Song of Canary a score of 4.8 stars. The score would have been higher except for the handful of spelling errors I found. However, your reading experience will be smoother because those errors have been corrected.
