Not too far into the book – when Banyan saw the picture Howqrd mention up above – I had the death-grip on my Kindle and began with the holding-of-my-breath. There are also pirates, and a whole lot of other unscrupulous, cutthroat folks. Desperate, Banyan makes a deal with her: Rootless is very plot oriented and as a result the characters aren’t as developed as I like. I loved the image of a girl pirate with a mohawk in a pink fuzzy vest bossing people around.
I like to write more than anything else I’ve ever done, though reading is right up there, too. We are left in the dark far more than Banyan and it becomes frustrating at times.
Chris Howard: The World of ROOTLESS … and the Hidden Histories Within – YA Highway
Was this rootlfss helpful to you? This is a strange world, but it echos our own. Bland is boring, I think. Banyan would be proud! Even if Chris Howard weren’t my agent-brother, I would have been psyched to read this book! Readers with more science background or less inclined to puzzle over things endlessly will likely not have this issue.
In this workshop, Chris encourages students to think about how their creativity transforms the world around them, and they spend the day using salvaged recycled materials to build trees or other new works of art together.
The plot is fast-paced and action-packed. Like the forests Banyan seeks to rebuild, this visionary novel is both beautiful and haunting—full of images that will take permanent root in your mind.
Rootless Series by Chris Howard
Using scrap metal and salvaged junk, he creates forests for rich patrons who seek a reprieve from the desolate landscape. I had no problem connecting with him. I could go on and on talking about Rootless by Chris Howard.
And I mean that in a good way. This astoundingly compelling and immensely satisfying novel tells the story of Banyan, a year-old tree builder and an artist, who dedicated his whole life to creating trees from pieces of scrap rootoess and electronic elements, and is now about to be launched on a wild quest to find his missing father and the remaining trees on Earth.
The world-building is great. Everything rootlfss when Banyan meets a woman with a strange tattoo—a clue to the whereabouts of the last living trees on earth, and he sets off across a wasteland from which few return.
I expected a dystopian similar to those I’ve been reading. Where do you get your ideas from? The tone of the book wasn’t something that really flew with me either, although it’s just my personally preference. Hina is the mysterious key and I liked her sorta-lost expression because it told of what she knew was almost un-real in their world. His love of Star Wars really shines through. By Title Book Reviews: Banyan doesn’t know more than he should.
Fans of the Mad Max movies, The Hunger Games, and other blood-pounding, life-or-death adventures will find much to like here, and will look forward to further installments.
Chris Howard: “The Science of Rootless”
Love it when authors can pull that off withou 4. Lynn e Schmidt November 3, at The writing is amazing, the storyline intense and intricate, the world dootless and beyond anything I have ever read, and I think Chris Howard will keep us on our toes as he continues his writing journey.
Chris Howard has no compunction in reminding us that this is a post-apocalypse. Everything that’s left is controlled by a corporation, the only institution capable of making food without cannibalism. The rare kind of rich folk that try and help others.
Banyan is a unique character as well — he has a deep respect for all women and regards them as equals in every way. Howadd seeme Review at: Do you think anything similar already exists?
The last real trees were gone a century ago, but somehow enough of a society still exists that rich people enjoy their strange metal gardens.
