The alleged Vincent Diamond is a former Central Florida writer now transplanted to North Carolina. When not at the keyboard, I'm in the dressage ring, trying to pick up the correct diagonal at the trot--usually unsuccessfully. Diamond gleefully buys smutty periodicals for “research materials” and lists them on a Schedule C every year. The IRS has yet to question this deduction.

The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle
"Honestly the most terrible thing I've ever read. Think of very terrible thing a human can do, especially blatant animal cruelty, and it's either there or alluded to. I can't unread this book, but I wish I could. I have never had such a reaction to..." Read more of this review »
The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle
"I usually really like coming-of-age novels, but this one was depressing. The characters were sad and messed up, there was a ton of language, and although at times I liked reading about the barn and the show horses, I really disliked the cruelty wi..." Read more of this review »
Survivors by James Wesley Rawles
"I should start by saying I am likely not the intended audience for this book. But my husband was reading it, so I started reading it aloud to him, for fun. It didn't take long for us both to start wondering at the absent plot, the nearly absent ch..." Read more of this review »
Survivors by James Wesley Rawles
"I would have never picked this up if my uncle hadn't insisted that I give it a try. I told myself not to judge this book by its cover, but I really should have because it was easily the worst book I've read in many years. While I found its conserv..." Read more of this review »

Much more entertaining than I expected as I don't watch or get the TV celebrity chef thing, but this was fun. The main character mother was easy to relate to and each POV showed the character's problems effectively.

Good humor and plausible action. A

DNF.

The lack of emotional nuance for the main character made me put this down. He finds a girl and eight cats nailed to a ceiling and has no reaction? Really?

Not a character I want to spend 250+ pages with.

When All Hell Breaks Loose by Cody Lundin

In contrast to the alleged fiction of James Wesley Rawles, this was helpful, had a fun voice, and seemed much more oriented to a regular person's abilities. If you think a doomsday event is coming, then reading (and implementing) some of Lundin's sug ...more

Okay, I admit I totally fell for the Walking Dead-esque cover image with the lone horseback rider and the guns and the whole rest-of-the-world has gone to shit look. And it is a solid premise for a story: survivors are inherently an interesting bunch ...more
