    Reads like a first draft

    I wanted to root for Edan Lepucki, I really did. In fact it’s taken me a while to write this because I always try to be supportive of debut female authors, but I just don’t feel like this book is getting the reviews that it deserves. In fact, I have to wonder if Colbert even read this book before he gave it the endorsement that changed the author’s course for the rest of her life. Without exaggeration, this is one of the most poorly written books I have read in over five years. The entire first half takes place in flashbacks—leaving one to wonder if the book was edited at all. The book’s main characters are tepid and boring, completely lacking the fighting instinct that would allow them to survive this kind of setting, and also transform them from one-dimensional characters into actual human beings whose struggles supersede the page. Nothing happens in this novel. Nothing. The entire first half is dedicated to a married couple who make up for... 1/5 Elderfish - See all my reviews This review is from: California: A Novel (Hardcover) I wanted to root for Edan Lepucki, I really did.

    Overrated

    This dystopian story follows married couple Cal and Frida in the middle of the 21st century, who left LA following a slow and steady apocalypse, as the country was running out of food, supplies, and supportable habitation. The Internet dried up, and the scramble to peaceably and comfortably exist was running on empty. Although it doesn't state definitively what occurred, it is evident that climactic conditions and carbon footprints were involved."...LA's chewed-up streets or its shuttered stores or its sagging houses. All those dead lawns...people starving on the sidewalks...the city wasn't just sick, it was dying."Cal and Frida live in a remote landscape in solitude, until they find one family a bit further away. But, when Frida determines that she is pregnant, they decide to venture out into a more established community that they learn about from their new friends. Having to rely on each other for all their emotional needs can be dicey; periodically, the... 3/5 "switterbug" Betsey Van Horn (Austin, Texas) - See all my reviews, July 8, 2014

    Truly Awful

    This was a great concept, poorly executed. Fleeing Los Angeles, a yuppie couple settles into an abandoned cabin in the woods in a "living off the land," cell phone free, technology free, post meltdown world. Unfortunately, the book simply does not hang together - when the couple meets some neighbors, it appears they will have fellow drop outs to befriend. In a bizarre plot turn, the couple are once again alone, except for a trader on horseback who comes through monthly to sell or bargain for provisions.In a desperate state, since they have zero survival skills, the couple decide to follow the trader, suspecting his destination is a place rumored to be a fenced in, self imposed prison-like compound which has food and some sort of social structure. Once inside the compound, this book runs off the rails by inserting one of the silliest plot devices imaginable. This book reads like a hastily written television movie for a cable channel as the "compound" is essentially a... 1/5 Drwo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
