About Katherine Nader

I’m an aspiring author and screenwriter currently living in different parts of the world. Since 2015, I’ve been travelling and experiencing collective living with friends, family and even strangers with one thing in common—meditation. I’m an active member and a volunteer for Sahaja Yoga Meditation, founded by H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. I love traveling to SY seminars, festivals, concerts, even volunteering at schools for Inner Peace Day.

Learning about cultures, traditions, religions and even spirituality has given me perspective on my life as well as a sense of "the self." I try to capture all these experiences in my writing. For example, The Foragers is set in Japan, a country I visited and lived in for 3 months. I came to learn about the First Nations called Ainu. Not many people know about them, so I have mentioned them in the series. I've also been to South Korea and witnessed the harshness of the forced military service on boys once they come of age. I portray this through another character. The Kan is actually a sixth sense/intuition that martial artists practiced in Japanese history. If you’re interested in connecting with me and reading more about how profits from paperback copies are being donated to Inner Peace, you can find the links in the next page.

I found this story hard to read and confusing through tne whole story until the last couple chapters .and then it leaves you hanging at the end..but there is lots of action in it its just hard to peice together.

If you like The Hunger Games you will love this book too. At the beginning the story was a bit confusing for me but towards the end it got me hooked! It is as if I was participating in the story. It is a great book that I'm sure anyone would like. Also, not to give any spoilers but the ending is just amazing!

An intricate narrative bringing out a picturesque imagination of the author, reverberating unknown Ainu culture and the footprints of experiences, that leaves a imprint of the author's mind Katherine Nader on readers, with characters who have suffered repression and are competing, to be the undisputed Forager. The quest for the title woven , would bring about an adrenaline rush in readers to jump to what happens next. A must read for adventure lovers and a showcase of imagination at it's best.

The Foragers by Katherine Nader is a very interesting and engrossing read from the get go. It’s very much like The Hunger Games, in which contestants are put up against each other in order to become the “Ultimate Forager”. However it becomes very clear that being tough is not enough, this is more than survival of the fittest, they are not only combating each other, but they have to battle the extreme elements and atmosphere of their unique surroundings whilst fighting their own emotional scars which, in order to succeed, will require far more than physical strength but mental fortitude, shrewdness and extreme caution.
I think it was particularly clever to have each chapter coming from the perspective of different characters, it is so interesting seeing the subtle connections between the contestants slowly revealed and seeing how they are part of something much bigger than this competition.
I have to admit there was times that I got very confused and had to go back and forth to compare chapters to follow what was going on, mainly because of the Japanese names, but I kind of like that you have to work to piece it together like having your own little mystery to solve.
This is a good read and leaves you on quite a cliffhanger, I’m ready for the next one.

I bought this book on Amazon with a recommendation of a friend. I have to say that dystopian universes are my favorites but they all have a big flaw in common: the pacing. The authors always write in a way that makes us believe we should be knowing every little details after the second page of the book- and I have to say that Katherine doesn't make that mistake. I was surprised at how nicely the story flowed, I was intrigued by the plotline and the characters' development. Everything was wrapped so nicely that the author had me hook after less than 5 pages. Bravo! I really enjoyed this read. If this is representative of what I'll be reading this year, then I'll have a great year!
