    1. This was really good It took a while for the book to really pick up the pace, but once I got to around page 115, I couldn t put it down Plus, the ending is so good and adorable omg


    2. I discovered Isobelle Carmody through her Obernewtyn series, and as I always do with any author I like, I toddled off to check out her backlist.This post apocalyptic tale was the one that interested me most although I hope to try out her fantasy some time too and when I saw the ebook on sale, I bought it, downloaded it and let it sit on my phone until I was ready to read it After finishing Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang, I decided to stick with the end of the world theme and give Scatterlings a [...]


    3. Scatterlings is Isobelle Carmody s second novel, written in 1991 The story follows Merlin, a girl who has woken up in a strange world she does not recognise Merlin remembers our world, complete with cities, homelessness and cars But this world is full of primitive seeming tribes, barter systems, a vast wilderness and strange new technology.Merlin is an interesting character, she is quite difficult to relate to because the position she is in is a unique one I myself have never suffered any seriou [...]


    4. It took me a little while to completely fall for this book, but I persevered with it because I loved Obernewtyn so much and I m glad I did A successful mesh between fantasy and sci fi genres is VERY hard to achieve and yet Carmody does it perfectly and plausibly From begining to end this book is driven by burning pulsating questions who is Merlin who are the Citizen gods who is William what is it like inside the dome These questions alone would make it a successful novel, but the characters are [...]


    5. Merlin wakes up in a helicopter that has crashed in a forest The pilot is dead, there s a metal collar around her neck with a broken chain hanging from it, and her memories are patchy and impersonal Not to mention that these memories memories of the world as we know it do not match the world in which she finds herself asphalt roads almost disappeared beneath grass, crumbling buildings and skyscrapers swallowed up by vigorous forest It is silent and deserted, and Merlin wanders lost and confused [...]


    6. Scatterlings is a passable but unsophisticated YA science fantasy novel about a teenage girl exploring Earth after an ecological collapse It has several enjoyable features and than a few mediocre ones On the whole, this book smacks of being written by an author with a lot of potential but not much experience The story is set in the immediate aftermath of a deadly ambulance crash, as amnesiac survivor Merlin encounters a primitive society of telepaths and journeys with them across the post apoca [...]


    7. This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon Please head there for in depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.Merlin wakes with no personal memory of who she is, just a jumble of memories that point to a world that seems long gone A journey that should seem simple enough in order to find answers turns out to be fraught with dangers that have not yet been explored by anyone.There is no feeling of Merlin as a character as she begins simply as a construction of i [...]


    8. Another re read for an English class.While in some ways this could be viewed as simplistically written, Scatterlings is a wonderful example of post apocalyptic children s literature, a sub genre which Australians have all but owned As a piece of Sci Fi Fantasy crossover, a domain Carmody clearly enjoys, it certainly ticks the boxes in relation to exploring current social concerns relating to our exploitation of the environment, overweening faith in and reliance on technology, and the ever presen [...]


    9. I adore this novel Written with her recognisable haunting imagery and style, Isobelle Carmody weaves an impossible tale of Merlin, a character out of time who does not even recognise herself I was hooked from the beginning, with a sense of dread and anxiety as Merlin wakes amid burning wreckage, a collar around her neck She does not know who she is, where she is or why she is there As with many of her characters, Isobelle s Merlin has a sense of self inflicted isolation, with an instinct to dist [...]


    10. I finished this book in one sitting and freaking loved it That s how addictive this book was Although I found the beginning slow and almost gave up, I absolutely find that matter trivial now coz DAMN this was an awesome book Thank goodness I didn t stop reading Merlin is one of the very few protagonists I don t find annoying, and the whole story is unpredictable This book manages to pull off the crazy scientists trope very well andgoodness graciouswow, I really enjoyed it 5 STARS


    11. An enjoyable read, although Carmody often takes the easy route when creating plotlines and doesn t bother to develop her characters The premise is intriguing and the possibilities vast the idea of an advanced civilisation manipulating savages through false religion and psychedelic drugs would be fascinating if Carmody bothered to explore it Instead, the reader is left with an overly simplistic bedtime story, focused entirely on a happily ever after for the main character with no consideration of [...]


    12. Nice read One of my teachers read the first bit to us at school, and I ve never forgotten that there s a fragment of a Bob Dylan song in there that made me kind of warm to it even when for some reason I really didn t think I liked Isobelle Carmody I soon changed my mind.


    13. Need to reread as an adult, but absolutely loved it as a teenager.EDIT Have just re read A little of the magic is lost as an adult as the book is clearly written for teenagers but nevertheless an enjoyable way to pass a few hours.


    14. I really like this book It s aimed at young adults but I still liked it There aren t a lot of psychic books out there and I have found a lot of vampire books lately and found this a nice change.


    15. I love the ending to this book Actually, I love this whole book And this is the probably the 16th time I ve read it.



    16. An interesting dystopian not like any others that I ve read, and written before the dystopian genre became the in thing.


    17. I read this late in primary school and then re read it through high school and beyond It is absolutely one of my favourite books, although I should re read it to see how I feel about it as an adult.


    18. I loved this book as a teenager, to the point of wearing it out Sadly, it doesn t hold up to a re read, either in my remembering of it or compared to current dystopian YA.
