Waiting on Wednesday: The Deserter by Pedar O. Guilin

Hello Everyone!!!

So I havent yet figured out goodreads. I can do a few things, but I dont have many friends on there so I end up just sitting and staring at my homepage, unsure of what to do next. Sometimes I look at books. But thats it. If you're interested, add me as a friend. My email is smleach5400 [at] yahoo [dot] com and my name is Sherre on there I think. Anywho, I end up finding many of my WoW books on Barnes and Noble as a result of my inabilit to navigate. This week's WoW pick is no different...
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This weeks pick is:

Book: The Deserter
By: Pedar O. Guilin
Publication Date: March 13, 2012

Description: To save his tribe, the cannibal Stopmouth must abandon it. Leaving the stone-age world of the Surface behind, he travels to the Roof, the mysterious hi-tech world suspended above. But the Roof has its own problems. The nanotechnology that controls it is collapsing. And now a rebellion against the ruling Commission is about to erupt.
Hunted by the Commission's nano-enhanced agents, Stopmouth must succeed in a desperate hunt of his own: to find the woman he loves. Only she knows how to save his tribe. But in this super-sophisticated world, all he has to fight with are his raw strength and fierce courage.

Why I want it: There aren't many books in male POV these days. I am very intrigued to read this one. Besides, the main character's a cannibal and when do you really get to read a book referencing cannibalism. It sounds pretty amazing. It also has just a touch of love story, which makes me love it even more.

What are your "Waiting" On Picks this week?

I just sent you a friend request on Goodreads. A lot of stuff on GR can be hard to find. Try to pay attention to all of the small text links to the right side everywhere you go. You may find some things you haven't seen yet.

I love your WOW pick. I read an awesome cannibal related story earlier this year called "Inside the Outside". You might check that out, too.

This book looks really interesting and intriguing. But it might be too complicated and confusting for me lol. Is it a dystopian?
