About this book

Terrified of the unknown and unsure of their ability to raise a child alone, Cal and Frida set out for the nearest settlement, a guarded and paranoid community with dark secrets. These people can offer them security, but Cal and Frida soon realize this community poses dangers of its own. In this unfamiliar world, where everything and everyone can be perceived as a threat, the couple must quickly decide whom to trust.A gripping and provocative debut novel by a stunning new talent, California imagines a frighteningly realistic near future, in which clashes between mankind's dark nature and deep-seated resilience force us to question how far we will go to protect the ones we love.

    Did anything happen in this book?

    I think I must have missed the part where something happened in this book. I am used to reading novels where it can take the authors over half the book to set up the story but then you get an interesting trajectory and an exciting ending. I was waiting and waiting for the interesting ending but in fact in never came. The story is about a young married couple in a sort of post-apocalyptic western U.S. They flee L.A. as all order is breaking down there and take to living off the land somewhere in the woods. After a variety of not very interesting occurrences, they end up on "the Land", a compound run by a group of similar minded individuals. The characters are boring and the woman Frida is maddeningly stupid. As near as I can tell, the climax of this story was supposed to be when (SPOILER ALERT) the people of the Land vote on whether Frida and Cal can stay and things are looking good until Frida finds it necessary to stand up and say "I'm pregnant", which she of... 1/5 Linda Pike - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Good concept, weak execution

    2/5 Stephanie Bontemps - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: California: A Novel (Kindle Edition) While the general plot was appealing, the writing and character development were very weak. The characters were shallow and largely unlikeable. Too many mentions of "raised eyebrow" to express emotion. After the sixth or seventh time I was wishing for better descriptions.

    Modern Library

    Like Coming Home Again - "California - A History" is a warm and gentle retelling of the state's great story.

    As a school principal I recall dropping by an eighth grade teacher’s history class the first day of school one year. I remember him offering this sage comment to his charges: “The thing about history is that it’s a story well told.” Surely that thought didn’t originate with him, but it stuck with me.The story of California, from its geomorphic origins to its ranking as the sixth or seventh largest economy in the world is both dramatic and sublime. It is expansive and illustrative of histories everywhere. Decades back, I recall telling my fourth grade students that any kind of event that has happened in human history has happened in California. Mount Vesuvius’s eruption in Italy? Mount Lassen erupted here. Overthrow of the British by the colonists in the 1770s? The Bear Flag Revolt in 1846 tossed out a distant Mexican regime. The subjugation and massacre of Native Americans in the Great Plains? We have the Modoc War (in which the... 5/5 D. Delgardo (Rocklin, CA) - See all my reviews, February 18, 2017

    Excellent overview of what California is..

    4/5 Jose - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: California: A History (Modern Library Chronicles Series Book 23) (Kindle Edition) If you are embarking on a journey to understand California, I would begin with this book.Sure, if this was meant to be a comprehensive history of California, it would be 1000s of pages long; however, it does provide certain episodes, and names in California history which gives the reader a starting point to explore further after this book.Highly recommend, especially to provide as a starting point to explore more in detail.

    Not very bangle

    2/5 Hattrick - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: State Shape Bangle Bracelet (Jewelry) It is to small to be a "bangle" bracelet unless it is for a child or someone with very small wrist. This was supposed to be a Christmas gift for a friend. I wished I had known before spending the money and losing the time.

This review is from: California State Flag 3 x 5 NEW CA REPUBLIC Banner (Lawn & Patio) The flag that I got looks nothing like the California flag, especially the detail of the bear. It looks like someone described the bear to the artist over the phone, and this is what they produced. Maybe I just got unlucky, as it seems many other buyers are satisfied. Please see the photo to see what I'm talking about., January 31, 2016
