Migrations by Charlotte McConaghy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In a near future where
entire species have gone extinct and the numbers of birds and fish are
catastrophically low, Franny convinces a fishing boat captain to bring
her aboard to follow the Arctic Tern (which she thinks will also follow
the fish.) As the story goes on, more of her past is revealed. It
sometimes feels like a story churning in its own destruction because
obviously Fanny knows everything that has happened and the reader
doesn't, but I liked the premise and the landscape. The crew is
interesting as is the people they encounter, usually in cold and remote
places, my favorite.
I had a copy of this from Flatiron Books
through Netgalley although it came out August 4th so I'm obviously in
catch-up mode with eARCs.
