The Collector - Luis A. Mendez

Product Description(
Our generation is nothing but a distant memory half a century from now. The future is in a state of chaos in the midst of a post-apocalyptic aftermath of an Earth changing event. Countries and empires have been replaced by dispersed tribes. Mankind has gone backwards, not forward, in technology. Their only hope is to learn from their Ancestors through their relics of the past - Books, movies, gadgets, or whatever else they can study from their time. Groups referred to as "Collectors" find these items and trade them with groups sent by local tribes called "Traders". In one part of the world, a Collector is said to have in his possession a very ancient and powerful book, one which is said to hold the answers to the Universe. Traders from distant tribes have come looking to trade with him for relics, and one of them wants to know about that mysterious book.

MY THOUGHTS:  I got this book from Amazon, couldn't find a book that fit a reading challenge I needed.  Although this is a very short book, it's full of visual aids so you can envision the setting and what's going on.  There are only 3 characters in the book and a dog.  The Collector has something someone wants to buy or trade.  One day someone comes looking for something.  It's a book, but the Collector doesn't want to give this book to just anyone. There is where the trouble starts.  I don't want to tell the name of the book as it would ruin the whole story.  Needless to say it is a very powerful book.  I give this book 5....

This book is also for 1 of my reading challenges.....
