Lovely story, thank you. Although I had to wipe tears away while reading the last few chapters, few were spilled out of sadness. This feel-good story nips at your emotions and the characters quickly worm their way into your heart. The tale is grounded in the traditions of Australia's first inhabitants which at the time of the story no longer take second place to European influences. Frequent descriptions of the unique flora and fauna of the continent help inmerse the reader in the magical environment the protagonists move around in.

 

A classic nerd/jock relationship is given a fresh twist with both main characters facing challenges due to their disabilities. Their interaction advances the story but what i enjoyed most was watchin them overcome their challenges and triumph against all those aligned agaisnt them.

 

A prequel to Attunga, Mparntwe provides background on the emergence of artificial intelligences and the development oftheir working relationship with humans. Thankfully, the author doesn't overwhelm us with the science behind the technology. Instead, he focuses on relationships and the growing connection between AI # 1 and the two boys who work with it.

 

I like the almost terse prose the author employs. Some of the jumps in time felt abrupt and at times disconcerting. At times it was difficult to figure out who the speaker was and I would suggest better speech tags. The story could also benefit from a final beta reading to eliminate a few typographical errors.

 

All that said, Mparntwe is a nice read which celebrates the triumph of the human spirit. I recommend it for whenever you want an uplifting tale.
