5.0 out of 5 stars Let's hear it for the real American folks out there., December 22, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Next Osama (Kindle Edition)
Judith Acosta's story takes place in Post 911 America, outside New York City, where the fall of the Twin Towers feels like next door. She has brought us the hearts, minds and souls of ordinary folks who are experiencing their own traumas in the aftermath of 911. The story elucidcates the strengths and weaknesses of her characters who come to life on the page. So much of the focus post 911 has been on the collective experience of the country, finding blame, and going to war. Acosta has us realizing and wondering-Is the enemy without...or within ourselves? It is refreshing to see these characters as well intentioned, hard working, well off and not well off, who are struggling for their emotional, physical, social and spiritual survival. The American culture is so absorbed with sensationalism, instant success, and greed, that it is distracted away from the real needs of real people.
This book is a real page turner with suspense throughout. Acosta's characters are so likeable, one wants the best for all of them and to see that they're all right. Of course, it can't be that simple in a tension filled world with fear just around every corner.
I highly recommend this book because it's about time someone thought to talk about how 911 really may have affected everyday people who are struggling to survive.
