British Columbia has changed. Globally, the weather has become extreme and unpredictable. Giant corporations rule. They are the beneficiaries of environmental laws imposed too late to help the world, but which can be used to control and impoverish the remaining population.

A young woman, Lia, escapes a Vancouver that has deteriorated into a landscape of gated communities, violent gangs, squalid squats, and sinister welfare agencies. She returns to her childhood home in the Kootenays and a commune where Magnus and his mother Ama and their eccentric neighbour, Matt, are determined not only to fight for their land but to understand the events that have shaped their lives.

The Bone House , a new novel by Luanne Armstrong, is a riveting tale of a world in which people have become endangered species. The memorable character and their resolve and hope will live on in the reader's mind long after the end of The Bone House .

It is rare that I cannot find it in my heart to finnish a novel, but this was one. The main character, Matt was so pathetic that I completely disliked him...any somehow he was destined to become a hero? I have to call this book a waste of time, and really cannot compare to On the Beach or The Road at all.
