I bought Facing the Furies on Thursday, thinking I'd start it that night and read it over the weekend and maybe beyond. Wrong. I couldn't put it down. DiStasio knows Key West and he knows what it is to survive a hurricane (or several) and he conveys his understanding compellingly. His characters, male and female, teens through senior citizens, are carefully created and lovingly treated. His descriptions are eloquent and charming. I live in Key West and have stayed on the island through a number of hurricanes. I can attest to the accuracy of DiStasio's description of devastating storms and his depiction of their psychological effects. Facing the Furies is a good read that will take you to a place you may have never been --- and hopefully will only visit in fair weather.

Format: Paperback
There's a line in Jimmy Buffett's song "Hurricane Season" that closely resembles the plot of DiStasio's novel: "It cleans me out, and then I can go home." The setting for this story is Key West (where, incidentally, Buffett used to live), and the time frame is one particularly rough hurricane season. DiStasio's understanding of human nature allows him to create interesting characters, and he throws a great deal of conflict their way in the form of turbulent relationships and a few nasty storms. It's a satisfying, intelligent read.

Daniel DiStasio has created a masterpiece with Facing The Furies! The way he interwove the turmoil in the characters' lives with each of the storms was brilliant. He sugar-coats nothing. His characters were all believable and he made you care what happened to each of them, even the drug dealer JoBe, who deeply loved those in his private world, especially his beloved and wise grandmother Opal. Having lived in Key West and Bahama Village where most of the story takes place, and having seen the devastation of the five storms of 2005, this book brought it all back, as DiStasio depicted them accurately, down to the unbelievable flooding when the Gulf of Mexico met the Atlantic Ocean! No one outside of Key West heard much about that, but too many friends lost their homes and almost their lives when the flood washed over the island. DiStasio captured it all! If this is an example of what we can expect from him, I can't wait to read the next one!
