” THE ARGOS
Mission Year 65
Day 307 inside vault one”
A fourteen year old girl sits cross-legged on the floor of a circular vault. A mass of curls haloes her head; her socks are full of holes. This is Konstance.”
The opening depicts “…Konstance, traveling toward a new world, decades from now.”
According to the back cover, we will also meet, “Anna and Omeir, on opposite sides of the city walls during the 1453 siege of Constantinople,” and “teenage idealist Seymour and octogenarian Zeno in an attack on a public library in present-day Idaho.”
Leave it to Doerr to magically interconnect these people “through an ancient story which comes to provide solace to these unforgettable characters.”
I have just begun and plan to MAKE time to read on it during my BLOGMAS READATHON this week.
