🗺 REVIEW: The Cartographers 🗺

The Cartographers is an absolutely unique story that had me entertained from start to finish. It stands to reason that book people would understand map people… the passion and intensity that Nell, her parents and colleagues have for creating and exploring maps was intoxicating. I learned so much about cartography reading this story, including how intriguing they can be! Now, this story has a bit of magic in it, but is based on a real concept of adding fake places, phantom settlements, to maps. Originally, the concept was to ensure no one was stealing your work, but the author here imagines that these places just might be real.

Now, if you’re thinking, interesting but will I be entertained reading an entire novel about this… YES! Nell’s surrounded by missing people, murders and burglaries – this poor girl is just trying to live her map-loving life and chaos reigns around her. She tries desperately to figure out why her father, a famous cartographer at the NY Public Library has been murdered. Her only clue is a cheap gas station map from the 1930s. As she begins to dig deeper into what her father may have uncovered, more and more bodies stack up and she is suspect number one. She is literally in a race against time to figure out who is targeting her and those she loves and the mystery hits a lot closer to home than she thinks. 

This one is fun and fast paced, filled with unique clues and facts reminiscent of a Dan Brown novel. This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year and it really impressed me with it’s creativity and uniqueness! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐

Other than books what are you a nerd about?
