  • Roberta M. Roy - Great Companion Read to Jolt: a rural noir by Roberta M RoyHaving recently written Jolt: a rural noir,rather serendipidously,I picked up my first copy of Zeitoun at B&N. As I checked out, the sales assistant commented he'd read it. "It's great!" he told me. "You'll really like it!" And I did--and it's a wonderful companion read to Jolt: a rural noir. I liked so much I then ordered a copy from this site for consideration by a book club reading Jolt: a rural noir. Why? Well, both Jolt: a rural noir and Zeitoun are love stories. Both involve survival. Eggers sets Zeitoun in post Katrina New Orleans;I set Jolt in time forward in the tiny mountain town of Locklee. Eggers describes survival when no escape is chosen; Jolt: a rural noir describes survival when no escape is possible. His is about surviving a flood; mine is about surviving being overrun by forced emigrants. The themes of both Zeitoun and Jolt: a rural noir involve the need for food, shelter, and communication in an emergency response situation. And with both, while the problems are severe, humanity shines through! Where Zeitoun offers lessons from the past, Jolt: a rural noir offers ideas for the future. And both offer some of the most memorable characters you'll ever meet--in Zeitoun there are Abdulrahman the house painter and his wife Kathy; in Jolt: a rural noir, there are the lovers, Thaw,an artist, and Natalie,a Jewish city planner; Dody,the abrupt visitor; and the Matters family. Lou Matters is a nuclear engineer at The Plant; Mary,a speech language pathologist in Aesopolis; and the Matters boys:Jason with his animals and the beepin'n'boppin' Marty.Jolt: a rural noir
  • TV Lover - A must haveExcept for maybe psychiatry, this is something every medical provider has to have. I was going to go electronic this year, but it was way too expensive. I am good with the hard print - except that you may want to up-size to the bigger print version if you are getting a little older and you don't always have your cheaters on you or your nurses are getting a little older too.
  • Brice - Getting back into the game for the first time since 1995I found my old red/green deck when I was moving and realized that a lot of my friends were still playing so I was looking to get back into the game. My problem was I hadn't played since then. Most of my deck was full of Urza's, Tempest, Mirage, even a few 5th edition. This is the perfect way to get back into the loop for me since all I have right now is my one old deck. You're basically getting all the lands you'll need plus all those usefull accessories for next to nothing, then paying retail for the boosters.
  • Stephen Collins - Bleak. So bleak.Try as I might to go into reading McCarthy's The Road without preconceptions, I just couldn't do it completely. I'd seen the film, I knew of other friends who read it and had varying (though broadly positive) responses to it, and had looked at a bunch of the reviews on Goodreads. Let alone the fact that it's a Pulitzer Prize winner (amongst a not-inconsiderable list of other awards).

    That all said, I think I largely managed to read the book without those collective factor weighing overmuch upon me. No small feat.

    McCarthy's book touches so many factors - the Hero's Journey, a road tale, father-son relationships, dystopian fiction, post-apocalyptic fiction, cautionary tales of what might happen if Mankind continues on our merry way, environmentalist warnings of a world denuded of its biosphere. The richness of all of these intersecting at once, and the interesting style of McCarthy's writing, which is stripped very bare but remains full of depth and meaning, makes The Road something more than just an interesting piece of fiction; rather, it's an artwork in and of itself.

    Possibly (if not certainly) the bleakest tale I've read in a good long while, The Road should be something we all read. It may not necessarily be to everyone's taste, but should be read.
  • jally7 - Preston and Child do it againPreston and Child are to me what this genre of fiction is supposed to be. Fast pace but of worthwhile prose. Great characters starting with Pendergast and Swanson. That hard to put down quality that all the best books are made of. All of these come together for a great read after the Helen storyline. Man I love these guys!
