    1 thought on “Wondering, the Way is Made: A South American Odyssey

    1. John Lennon famously said, “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.” Too true, and as we all know (and more so the older we get), plans never run according to plan anyway. The Way, on the other hand, involves those moments of present; where plans present themselves in visions, gut feelings, obstacles and necessities.In this story, the Way has different ways of bringing about travelling friends to converge in South America, as they try to decide how to escape the imm [...]

    2. Being cut off, severed from something, is a difficult starting point. Throughout this novel the looming presence of a world behind and away, a world that has shaped the characters we will follow, is felt as a real entity. It stalks them as they pass over and through unfamiliar lands, searching for respite from the world at their backs. The friendship that binds them causes them to draw together and endeavour to reach a place where this world of political upheaval, civil unrest and authoritariani [...]

    3. I very much looked forward to starting Wondering because it seems that me and Mr Marsden, in isolation, began writing in the hopefully burgeoning South American eco-apocalyptic subgenre D:… ;) I was not disappointed by this one, my friend!!Wondering is a fascinating blend of travel memoir, fiction and environmental fact. With simple elegant prose featuring simple elegant conversations, Marsden conjures up a South America of the near-future, the climactic decline of which acts initially as a mo [...]

    4. I recived this in a first-reads giveaway! Along it I recived the most beautiful handwritten letter, which was deeply appreciated. Thank you!Beautifully written story taken place in a world suffering the consequences of global warming. This is about a journey through South America and friendship. You can easyly tell that mr Marsden is a well-traveled and well-educated man, who draws much of his inspiration from his own experiences. The novel contains a lot of dialogues and maybe I'd liked some m [...]

    5. a give-away!i was expecting a travelog - a whippersnapper’s trip around South America. Not so much. In a world just a wee bit farther along the planet-destructive path we are barreling downa group of very young friends decide to leave their various first world places of origin; homes that are no longer home. As global warming takes Miami and other low lying cities and countries, with resultant chaos, martial law and mandatory conscription - to protect lands where there is no privacy, no freed [...]

    6. I won this as a First Reads Give-away.This story takes place in the near future, as the world begins to disintegrate around climate catastrophe. It was interesting to think that even as the s&%t hits the fan, nations could still be thinking of themselves as separate not realizing that ALL of us are facing this potentially world-ending fate, best working together as "humans" (instead of as Argentinians or Chileans)!This group of young folks from all over, gather together in South America and [...]

    7. This is a beautifully written book, with excellent descriptions, and well-rounded characters. The plot moves at a nice pace, and will give you plenty to think about while reading it, as well as after you're finnished.

    8. One word that can describe this novel - DescriptiveWondering, the Way is Made is a book that takes the reader on a journey. The description of the journey is praise-worthy.

    9. I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read. 'The end of days' and 'social decay' have become Hollywood tropes of late, and the usual treatment seems to revolve around simple survival while the characters resort to increasingly primitive tactics. With this book, the author seems to be attempting to deal with the preservation of the soul above and beyond that of the body during times of global decline.Set in several South American countries, the story reads somewhat like an updated version of [...]

    10. I received this book for free via First Reads.It is one of those books I had limited expectations of. Travel books is not a genre I have loved in the past. I found this one to be a little different.The main characters are all interesting (a follow-up book could tell how they all met in detail). The odyssey they undertook was interesting and there is a lot of humour from highbrow to lowbrow in the book.I disliked the fact that every problem was bought out of yet understand why that happened. I w [...]
