Snow and Caramel are brother and sister duo. In the dystopian future, they have lost their parents, their tribe and village. Set in 2235, the radiation has given birth to humanoids or small humans.
Snow is 16 years old and Caramel is a few years younger to him. And with no relatives left, he is concerned and protective of Caramel.
Jay Kerk’s novella is a tale of perseverance, patience and fight for survival in face of extreme difficulties. The book, even though is set in dystopian world, draws parallels to our society and our current social issues.
Kerk has a distinctive style of writing and brings out real issues with no efforts. The characters are genuine and relatable. Throughout the chapters, you feel pain for the duo.
All the actions and incidences from the start lead towards the ending. Like his previous book psychopath and a predator, this story is powerful and thought-provoking.
Some lines in the book will make you ponder on the cruelty and inhumanity sometimes we humans create around us.
Snow and Caramel is a heart-wrenching tale of two siblings and gives us a perspective on our social issues.
My rating for the book is 4 stars.
