Ka: Dar Oakley in the Ruin of Ymr


This is another one of those books that I found to be well-written and even may call profound, but didn't quite work for me. It's a tour through western civilization through the eyes of a Crow. It's not just any Crow, but the first to bear a name and one who achieves a sort of immortality. The prose is so lush, it's almost poetry. The perspective, that of a Crow, is remarkable. Yet for all its gloriousness, I was rather bored by it. This book won the 2018 Mythopoeic Award and was nominated for several others.
