Synopsis:

When the sea takes everything, including his family, Mau, forced to become a man, must find the strength within him to defy expectations and the courage to forge new beliefs. 100,000 first printing.


Review:

"While NATION may be aimed primarily at bright-eyed young adults...many grizzled old adults are likely to enjoy it, too....It is a thrilling story [that examines] some fundamental questions about religious belief, the nature of culture and what it means to be human."

Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World, 09/28/2008

Review:

"Satirical portraits of upper-class twits, slapstick buffoonery, bad puns, and that particular brand of English wit buoy this story at every turn. Add a romance of gentle sweetness, encounters with ghosts, and lots of gunfire, and it is hard to imagine a reader who won't feel welcomed into this nation."

Horn Book, 09/01/2008

Book Description: HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 225 x 161 mm. Brand New Book. The sea has taken everything.Mau is the only one left after a giant wave sweeps his island village away. But when much is taken, something is returned, and somewhere in the jungle Daphne--a girl from the other side of the globe--is the sole survivor of a ship destroyed by the same wave. Together the two confront the aftermath of catastrophe. Drawn by the smoke of Mau and Daphne s sheltering fire, other refugees slowly arrive: children without parents, mothers without babies, husbands without wives--all of them hungry and all of them frightened. As Mau and Daphne struggle to keep the small band safe and fed, they defy ancestral spirits, challenge death himself, and uncover a long-hidden secret that literally turns the world upside down. . . .Internationally revered storyteller Terry Pratchett presents a breathtaking adventure of survival and discovery, and of the courage required to forge new beliefs.
