A young woman recently relocated to a tiny Vermont logging town, Lillian is menaced by a mysterious stalker named Blackway. This one man - who kills her cat, forces her boyfriend to flee the state in terror, and silently threatens her very existence - is a force little understood by the local figures to whom she turns for help. Yet, in this spare and powerful tale, Lillian enlists the powerful brute Nate and the curmudgeonly Lester to take the fight to her tormenter as a raggedy quartet of town elders ponders her likely fate.

The reader did a good job with all the voices and made a fair attempt at trying to differentiate them. The story was also very interesting even though it got a bit preachy in parts.

    3.5 out of 5 stars 68

It is 1994, and in the desert near Tillman, Arizona, 40 miles from Tucson, a grand experiment involving the future of humanity is underway. As climate change threatens the Earth, eight scientists, four men and four women dubbed the Terranauts, have been selected to live under glass in E2, a prototype of a possible off-Earth colony. Their sealed three-acre compound comprises five biomes - rain forest, savanna, desert, ocean, and marsh - and enough wildlife, water, and vegetation to sustain them.

This is not TCBoyle's best work. Despite that, it's very imaginative and the language does transport the reader into the heads of the main characters. The readers did a good job.

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

I learned about and followed South African history and politics back in school. This was better than watching any news report or geography class back in the day. This book gives you the feel of being there living it with Trevor, and describing what living Apartheid and post-apartheid society was like.
I'm glad Trevor's now the host of the Daily Show.
