Review: Alouette's Song by Andrew Fine

Alouette's Song by Andrew Fine

Link to buy Alouette's Song (Alouette's Wings Book 1)

Rating: 2.5 out of 5


Alouette’s Song isn’t a typical New Adult novel. Unlike most NA books, this one has a bunch of main characters who range in age from their mid-teens through their fifties. They all tell their own parts of the story in first person, which is a bit disconcerting because it causes the reader to flip backward sometimes to figure out who’s talking. Also unlike most NA books, this isn’t just about the angsty or sexy world of the 18 to 25 year old. This one has all sorts of things going on, including math and science and national security issues.

So, since Alouette’s Song defies New Adult norms, here’s a review that defies the norms of reviews: A hiaku review! If you’d like to play along at home, read the book and craft your own hiaku for it. You’ll no doubt do far better than what you see below. Even though I told my mom that I woke up every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning to attend that 8 a.m. poetry class in college, that was a lie. Poetry of any sort isn’t in my wheelhouse. Although wheelhouse might make a good word to put in some poetry. Or maybe not. I wouldn’t know because in college I never rolled out of bed until All My Children came on.

Alouette’s Song hiaku review:

An unlikely crew
Seeks science fiction or fact
And a candlestick.
