The ocean holds a primeval place in the human consciousness Some say the sea was where our species began Ships have longed served a critical role in civilization and have long been honored as such Like a lot of romantic notions the reality of a life at sea is contradictory to to ideal and thankfully the author of this novel does not shy away from the harshness of life on board an icebreaker particularly one thats been sailing for three hundred years The Oyster feels like a real place The author really did their homework on this one She did a good job at balancing the feel and factual A common problem faced with writers particularly fiction is that they get so bogged down in the details for the sake of realism that ultimately they make glaring errors or they sacrifice story for trying to get the nitty gritty right In this book almost all of the action takes place in Petrel and Fin’s heads Petrel grew up on the ship and Fin has no idea what anything is so we rarely see what the nautical terms for the lightbulbs or whatever are and it makes the story relatable for us landlubbers The author wisely focused on how the Oyster feels and sounds rather than the jargon which is greatly to the book’s benefit When the characters are out on deck the reader can feel how cold it is and when they are below they can smell the fish oil Remember they’re writing a story not a textbook That may seem like a cop out but it is the truth On the topic of plausibility another thing that feels real but not a good way is the rise of the Anti Machinists Anyone who spends time on the internet can attest that the world is filled with crazy and because of the internet they can get their message to the world easily than ever The ‘selfie generation’ has long been criticized and as it seems like the world becomes and unhinged it is not to big of a stretch to think that people will turn to violence in order to restore some measure of order to their lives and what has longer been criticized than the internet has been machines and technology with the belief that they diminish humanity Also considering the anti science climate that stubbornly sticking around the Anti Machinists of Petrel and Fin’s world don’t seem to be so implausible As Bookworm gets olderhe is finding and that these stories of teens and tweens saving the world is becoming and ludicrous As he passes the High School on the way to work sometimes and he sees the students outside Bookworm thinks “These twerps ruling a planet or leading an army?” Books like that can be very good if written well but at the same time they do seem like adolescent wish fulfillment Be that as it may the main protagonist Petrel is still a good character even though she does fall into the “orphan outcast” cliche Seriously what is it about orphans? Anyway Petrel a name for a seabird is balanced enough that the reader may able to forgive her cliched origin story She is very strong and very capable but at times she is also vulnerable there are times when she fails in the book Of course she gets out of it but the struggle feels authentic Fin also had a rough upbringing raised under what we can assume is a theocratic despotism The author did a good job in not giving too much away about the inner workings of the Anti Macninist order We often don’t think about the exact nature of how the society that we are raised in actually functioned Not at least until we reach young adulthood It also provides hints making the reader eager for the seuel No spoilers but there is also a lingering plot thread that was never fully addressed It was only briefly mentioned in one or two sentences that could easily be overlooked Final Verdict Icebreaker is a refreshing change in the world of dystopic young adult fiction for its grounded setting and its heartfelt characterization While it does have a lot of cliches of the aforementioned Four petrels out of Fivetheculturewormblogspotcom
