BALTI: THE INCOMPLETE WORLD
The subconscious hiding the mysterious powers of nature...
Beloved children’s author İrem Uşar, who is very popular with her novel Latashiba: Between Two Cities, is this time inviting her readers to a fantastic world hidden underground. The struggle of those who hided and lived underground for ages because of the endless war on earth glorifies the unique harmony of humankind with nature. With its multilayered set up that alternates between reality and subconscious mind, the novel lyrically reveals mysterious powers of the mind that can resist violence. In Baltı: The Incomplete World, Uşar presents a magnificent telling style with her rich metaphors, refined ironies and masterly blended concepts like hope, freedom, courage, memory and reality.
People of BALTI were living underground for 300 years to protect themselves from the war taking place on the face of earth and led by their Leader. But strange things started to happen when during Uroboros Celebrations, the ceremonial snake swallowed itself: A family living underground and speaking an unknown language is found; light bulbs have melted and Old ID reminded the young ones of their missing and hidden parts. Maybe, it was now the time for young IDs to go to the surface full of mysteries…
