Title: vViIrRuUsS: I Never Forget
Goodreads page: Link
A virus invades the lives of all humanity and causes a madness pandemic from the reminder of the past and the exposure of thoughts threatening to change everything, but then another virus attempts to erase the memories and recover the future, while a third virus scopes to save the new generations.
Talking about a virus, especially in this particular time, can hit really near home. This novel talking about viruses that kinda mess with people’s minds ended up being current as they ended up representing what is happening right now with the mental health of the people.
The fact that the book is completely written in verse was also a really particular choice and a new experience for me as it’s the first time for me where I read poetry in what is not my main language.
The novel is a mixture of reality, fiction, social critique and pop culture that gives life to a poem about viruses that end up distorting the life we were all accustomed to live.
The narrator gave me the idea of a mind that is closing more and more on itself, alienating from the rest of the world and starting to observe how things are going like it was completely foreign to them.
It seems almost like a delirium of a twisted mind that analyzes a dystopic problem that, however, feels almost real with what is happening right now in our world.
It’s the first time I’m reading a book with a style like this and I didn’t dislike it. Recommended if you want to try something different from the classic novel.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
