    Real Insight From A Florida Insider.

    Most books of this nature reflect a rose-colored tone usually with a hidden marketing campaign or sales pitch between the lines. This book is different, in a good way. The author provides a realistic presentation of Florida living. Bugs and all. Romantic ideals are balanced with true insight.I have vacationed in Florida for many years and have some direct experience with the beautiful side of Florida (palm trees, porpoises, gulf views) and the ugly side (seedy transients, obscene traffic, overcrowding). The author drives home the concept that vacationing and living there are two different worlds. Sometimes the author voices a personal opinion that may be unpopular or politically incorrect. It's these opinions sprinkled throughout that make this book better. It also helps people like me, who are considering a move to Florida, make more informed choices.My only complaint is that the book didn't contain enough information.

    Some good info with an overall negative bias and sloppy execution

    A quick pass by a professional editor would improve this book greatly and enhance the author's credibility. There are some real grammatical and stylistic howlers here.That said, I read with fascination Stack's vivid portrayal of the miseries of a Florida summer that send many packing back north, often at a huge loss. Alligators in your swimming pool. Snakes crawling into your pool cage to get the geckos. Heatstroke-inducing temperatures and humidity if you dare to venture outside at midday,making neighborhoods into ghost towns. Hurricane evacuations uprooting you and forcing you to join an endless exodus of stopped traffic (woe to you if you need gas; every station along the way will be out, and forget about a place to stay if you haven't made a reservation long before evacuating). Power outages in the "lightning capital of the world." Giant cockroaches.

    A rite of passage

    In blissful prose that demands attention, Schutt is ruthless, brutal and passionate, as she tells the story of a motherless daughter. From the beginning I am in tears, so deeply does this small novel reach into the hidden places of my heart. Even while the author's transcendent words fill me, my mind reaches to my own mother, in her final days railing against a world she refused to relinquish.Alice, namesake daughter, is a child born to survive her environment, with a mother who seeks emotional safety in confinement to a sanatorium. There follows a series of homes, but never one of her own and a need to find comfort in a world bereft of comfort, after her father's death and mother's virtual abandonment.In her ensuing sleep-over life, little Alice must always ask, "may I...?", remain unobtrusive, be pliant, flattering. Moving from her Uncle Billy and Aunt Frances' possession-filled, strict-ruled, child-proofed home to her Nonna's luxurious estate, Alice spills her heart out... 5/5 Luan Gaines "luansos" (Dana Point, CA USA) - See all my reviews, May 26, 2004

    "Mother had used overcooked bacon for a bookmark..."

    Nominated for the National Book Award for this debut novel, Christine Schutt creates an impressionistic and moving picture of young Alice Fivey's difficult life from age five, when she is left fatherless, until she is in her thirties. When her mother's mental problems lead to her stay in "the San" within a year of her father's death, Alice is shuttled among family members, living at various times with her Uncle Billy and Aunt Frances, who systematically appropriate her mother's belongings, and for several years with Nonna, her grandmother, who is bedridden and unable to talk.Schutt presents short, jewel-like memories of the past as they come unbidden to the growing Alice, filling them with the kind of descriptive detail which children remember so vividly. As Alice tries to reconcile the present with the past, she confronts and tries to understand life's big issues--acts of fate, illness, death, and love and their effects on families and one's dreams. Her peripatetic... 4/5 Mary Whipple (New England) - See all my reviews, October 24, 2005

    poetic prose, character/narrative not as strong

    Florida was the last of the five National Book Award nominees that I came to read, and while it broke the trend of the books getting worse as I read, I have to say, as I've said of the others, that I'm not quite sure why it received such high honor. But if the five as a whole were weak, Florida at least is one of the two best in that weak group. Like the other decent nominee, Madeleine is Sleeping, Florida is more a collection of vignettes than a single run of novelistic narrative. Though less surreal and playful than Madeleine, the two also share a highly poetic prose, and both display a strong talent for language, if not story or character. The vignettes are the first-person narrative of Alice Fivey, who loses first her father when she is quite small, then her mother (to a treatment facility known as the Sans) when she is about ten. She is first shuttled off to her Uncle Billy's and Aunt Frances relatively strict home, then to the rich estate of her... 3/5 B. Capossere (Rochester, NY USA) - See all my reviews, April 4, 2005

    A Unique Florida Guidebook

    Certainly, you have been to Florida and the major attractions in and around Orlando. You have visited the beaches on the east and west coasts of that state. You might have been to Key West.

    More narrative style

    0 3/5 Bronx Rox! (Bronx, NY, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Backroads of Florida: Your Guide to Great Day Trips & Weekend Getaways (Paperback) This book is fine, and is lovely for what it is, but it is written in a more narrative style that is not as useful (for me, personally) as a travel guide. It does have some beautiful accompanying photographs, but the suggested routes are only typed out as directions and are not shown in a more convenient map-form. Plus the routes do not go into as much suggested detail as I would want--they feel more like short overviews with nice photos that could inspire drives to interesting places but which would ultimately require more research--or, at least, an attitude of just driving down the road and letting oneself be surprised. Perhaps this, then, is really the book's intent--to suggest and inspire but to leave the real discovery for the actual traveler? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 11, 2010

The photos are great and there's just the right amount of information about the shells. Of all the shell identification books available (on Florida), the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum in Sanibel (the world's only shell museum) suggested this one and I see why. It's a keeper! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 18, 2009
