No one knows when the war against the greys began. There are theories, speculations, but the only certainties are air-raids, abductions, and inner city explosions. Assaults are endless, swift and lethal; the enemy's stealth unsurpassed. Whispers have circulated for centuries, thoughts spinning from minds in visible wordwinds, clear for all to read, to wield, to steal. Where are the greys? When will they next strike? How can you attack something you can't see? And secretly, fearfully: Are the greys even real? Spanning decades, Lament for the Afterlife follows one man as he negotiates the hostile territory of life after combat. Peytr Borysson comes from a long line of soldiers, but isn't born for fighting. His 'wind is better shaped for poetry than bullets. Even so, at sixteen he follows the local boys into battle and never quite leaves. Interweaving Peytr's struggles with those of his family, Lament for the Afterlife takes readers to the frontlines and far beyond, telling a story of ordinary people persisting in extraordinary circumstances. A novel of human survival, guilt, and the devastating power of memory, Lament for the Afterlife examines the physical and psychological distances we travel when beliefs are threatened or held too tightly.… (mais)

Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com

Told from multiple points of view, this story features a war against an enemy that's never really explained.

Or if it is, I must have missed it. While the writing at times was really beautiful and intriguing my problem with it was mostly that I felt like I was missing a lot. Exactly what was going on for example. The many, many different characters that are brought into the story don't make it any easier.

Don't get me wrong, I like it when stories don't spell everything out for you and there's something left to the imagination, but I do like to have some kind of knowledge about what the story is about. The fact that the enemy, the Greys, are never named or explained didn't help either.

It had great potential, but for me it fell a bit short on the execution.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! ( )

After reading the description of this book, I thought it sounded interesting enough to try out and I received a free advance reader copy. Unfortunately, I got about a third of the way through the book and couldn't go any farther. I felt like I was forcing myself because the story wasn't really able to pull me in.

The story starts off from the point of view of a teenager named Peyt that was drafted to fight in the war against an enemy he's never seen. Every time the story was in his point of view, I felt it was poorly written and wasn't structured very well. I really didn't have a good understanding of Peyt and found myself not caring at all for him. This is unfortunate because I actually enjoyed the story from the point of view of Peyt's father, Borys.

Hannett's talent is undeniable, her prose is achingly beautiful, and her analysis of war's inevitable toil is thorough and rich. Her novel is a demanding read, but it rewards an attentive reader with an appreciation for the weird.
