Marrow's PitMarrow's Pit by Keith Deininger

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This quick read is more like a novella or extended short story than a novel. The Machine provides work, shelter, and food to the people, protecting them from the harsh environment of the Maelstrom. The Machine has few exit points - no one leaves - and they all lead to Marrow's Pit, where the Machine's waste is deposited. Ballard has lived his whole life in the Machine and this story forces him to confront the reality of his deplorable situation after an accident. I enjoyed the pace of the story and learning about this bleak world, and I would have enjoyed even more.

This review is based on an advanced copy from netgalley.com. The book will be released March 11, 2014.
