Book: M. R. Carey's "The Book Of Koli"

My next book was a return to post apocalypse sci-fi.  M.R. Carey's "The Book of Koli" takes place in a future Great Britain where tech has become rare and, in the eyes of survivors, magical.  Nature, on the other hand, is deadly and to be avoided.

We aren't totally sure what destroyed civilization but a war, climate change, and out of control bioengineering are all referenced.  In this world Koli, a young boy, gets embroiled in village politics and is kicked out into a very hostile world.

The book is narrated by Koli in a pigeon english that is not too hard to understand but gives the book some atmosphere.  The world is interesting.  This is the first book of a trilogy so I may have to read the other two since I like where this is going.

I gave this book four stars out of five on Goodreads.  It piqued my interest.
