Always considered an outsider in her tribe, Iwa seem to care for them even if they don’t. When the woyaks attacks the tribe, she is the one chosen to find poison mushrooms in order to kill the attackers. However, instead of finding mushrooms, she finds something else that challenges her knowledge of everything- herself and her life so far.
The character of Iwa as a protagonist is shaped really well by the author. She exhibits some youthful characteristics wonderfully. Her own individual trait adds to this and creates a marvelous character.
"And if she’d so much as a knife upon her she could have crept up and cut your throats before you’d have finished your vodka."
However, I think there was more room for development of the other characters. The story at some places seemed to me to have become stagnant. But then again, I found the ending to be quite different, on the positive side.
I won’t say this is a super duper book, but it’s definitely worth a read. You’ll love the character and the setting of the story.
