We'll Wrap Up Dies The Fire Sunday Night!

So we're going to wrap up Dies the Fire on Sunday Night, and enjoy a conversation in the comments about our thoughts on this book. I'll make a post with my thoughts on it, and anyone who wants to leave a comment can also join right in. But I also have a bigger idea for this bookclub...

For anyone interested, I will host a live Google Hangout at 8PM EST, and it'll be public for anyone to watch or chat in. I'm looking for a few other people in the club with Google+ to join is as co-hosts and then the whole event will be open to community comments and such. If I can figure out to do this, and then save it as a file to upload onto Youtube I will be amazed (and very pleased). If anyone is a wiz with this stuff, send me an email!

I bought the book to satisfy my curiosity and enjoyed reading it, I have to say. I was intrigued to see that Sky 1 will be starting a new series on Good Friday called "Revolution" and guess how it starts?! You got it, lights going out, planes falling out of the sky, cars stopping and then you see folks with crossbows and armour!

I love the irony of your post, and the comic it contains. As I read it, I'm sitting in a bistro in downtown Portland, waiting between two job interviews hoping to get the chance to move down here!

Hehe

Thanks! :)

I too picked up a copy and am late to the party! Was up till 4 am the first night reading, but since then have been pacing myself... part to make it last longer, and part because springtime farm fun has me busy busy busy!
I was amused to see that the author is apparently a Stan Rogers fan... the section when he describes Will Hutton's courtship of Angel is basically word-for-word from the song Night Guard... "she wanted more than broken bones and trophies on the wall... and to get this spread and a decent herd...". Too funny. I'm really enjoying the book though, and was overdue for some light fiction reading! As a bonus, it made me finally get around to putting together a grab-and-go bag and first aid/emergency kits for our home, workspace, and vehicles, and made me extra sad that our neighbor who used to have an archery setup of some bows and a stack of haybales in his loft down the hall from our studio moved to Brooklyn. Time to set up our own range in the basement... Huzzah!

Oh bummer, I don't think I'll be free Sunday for the hangout! I'm not entirely sure I'll be done with it by then anyways, since it apparently takes me about ten times as long to listen to a book than to read it!

I just finished the book! I'm also pretty good with Google+, I've done several hangouts for work conferencing and stuff. I'm happy to help!

I've started on the second book. So far, so good. Bovey Belle, I am SO glad Revolution is coming back. I've been watching it from the beginning and was afraid they had cancelled it. Looking forward to this book chat Jenna. Thanks for putting it together.

The show Revolution started in the fall on NBC and it was interesting. Especially since it time shifts between when the power went out and 15 years post. Very similar but there is another bent to it. It starts back up I think on Monday night at 10. Very similar plot lines.

We are in Wales, UK and I've not noticed it on Sky before, but then I suppose I probably wouldn't until the book made me aware. Ten years down the line would be interesting I think.

Sorry Cathy - I meant to mention your name in relation to that post and Normal Mom - I wish I had seen it from the start.
