    One thought on “Undreamed Shores”

    1. Undreamed Shores is a book I can wholeheartedly recommend to others. It is set at the start of the Bronze Age in northern Europe, somewhere between 4000 and 4500 years ago. It is fundamentally about exploration, on many different levels. Individual people, especially the central characters Amzai and Nanti, explore the spaces around themselves in many ways. As well as their physical space, they explore relational spaces ranging from intimacy and friendship to envy and hostility, through to the so [...]

    2. A wonderful book, beautifully written. Such a pleasant change from the boisterous action-packed norm of the 21st Century. Patton invites the reader to sit and savour his rich prose, while following the lives of Amzai, a castaway on a strange shore, and Nanti who rescues him. They teach each other how to communicate and fall in love in the leisurely spirit-filled world when Stonehenge was built.We re-learn the secrets of herbal medicine, and enter into the politics of tribal England. But Amzai wa [...]

    3. Undreamed Shores by Mark PattonGiving a reader a glimpse of life- completely fictitious or partially factual-in a historical era not often covered by authors is a daunting challenge. Mark Patton paints Amzai’s world of 2400 BC in such a way that allows the modern reader to empathise and recognise what takes place around him. Flora and fauna are used judiciously. I believe herbalists, ornithology enthusiasts, and devotees of aquatic creatures will love the detail in Undreamed Shores. I could sm [...]

    4. I enjoyed this book. It was a slow burn of necessity, drawing the reader into communities from 4000+ years ago, giving time for wonder and exploration before the story picked up the pace towards the end. I shall be thinking about aspects of this book for some time to come and will view stone circles with more understanding in future. Quite a different read to Bernhard Cornwell's "Stonehenge" but I think they compliment on another.

    5. An amazing step back into the uncharted waters of history by an author who really knows his stuff. There is a dream-like quality to this book and the characters draw the reader in - quite brilliant

    6. Well written and lovely story by this author. Historical fiction set a very long time ago with enchanting characters and setting.
