Format: Paperback
As the story is about war and oppression, I didn't expect to laugh my way through this book. Ponder, reflect, giggle. Ponder, reflect, giggle, snort. My favorite scene takes place in a small town filled with dogs that are lovingly cared for by ordinary folks who understand resistance. Before I got to this scene, I had a dozen other favorite moments.

I did recommend this book to a friend who is teaching her daughter about the politics of water. She feels it is a bit much for a 12-year-old to read on her own. I say kids need to buck up! Only joking. Unless it is a family project, young readers should skip this one.

Wise paints a picture that's easy to believe: Texas invades New Mexico under the direction of a GW Bush-like bully, complete with a staff that's similar to the administration currently occupying the White House. The new war is all about water rights, and there's no help from D.C., as U.S. armed forces are bogged down in the middle east. Believable characters, good dialog, plenty of humor, and an accurate description of the people and places that make up modern day New Mexico make this a great read.

Format: Paperback
Mr. Wice is an author we can only hope to read more of his work. His wit, humor, and satirical talents are not only untouchable but embodied in his wonderful novel, To The Last Drop... A novel I was unable to put down, stop my intermittent chuckling, and resist the urge to read again. Wice inscribes a well-written story of an entwined water crisis with domineering Texans, rebellious and victorious New Mexicans, uncanny and misfortunate characters, and a plot begging to be unearthed. Down to earth, raw, and vulgar all at once, Wice does an excellent job of articulating the value of water by comparing it to the ever-rising cost of gasoline. This is a book that anyone who has a pulse should read... but don't take my word for it, buy a copy and see for yourself. An intrepid tale awaits you...

To the Last Drop: A Novel of Water, Oppression, and Rebellion

This novel was very entertaining, timely and educational--all at the same time. I didn't realize the full impact of the fragile geology and impending demise of the aquifers in the Southwest, and I was unfamiliar with the historical references (sometimes comically revealed) and the parallels in the novel. I was most impressed, however, with the boldly drawn and fully realized characters, such as U.S. Armstrong and the Governor, not to mention the motorcyle dudes, slackers, and scientists who people the story. The tale is very cinematic, and descriptions and dialogue are excellent. Hats off to a new writer with an ear for dialogue, an eye for description, and a great storyteller.
