Next Month's Book Club Pick!
There are no zombies. Guns work just fine. What is so gripping to me is the way society and communities change when living as a unit becomes the normal, instead of all of us out in our own little worlds and lives. If Dies the Fire made you think about how you'd fit into that changed world, this book will make you obsess about it.
What I liked about this book was how it made me think about my own farm and neighbors all the while making me so emotionally invested in these fictional farms and neighbors. The book does have sex and violence, but don't expect any battles with swords and arrows. This is a small town story about a very large emergency, and the horse-drawn ride James takes you on makes you think, laugh, worry, and look at junk on the side of the road and wonder if you could turn it into a solar shower or ham smoker. Not many books make me wonder about that.
Like all LLF Club picks it is available in paper, eBook, and audiobook forms. And if you want an author-signed copy right from the heart of the story, Battenkill Books can happily mail you one right quick! Just click that link and call or email Connie and the gals and they'll drop a copy in the post.
I promise the next pick will have nothing to do with the end of the world. Pinky swear!
