Editorial Reviews

Review

"With no wasted space yet plenty of emotion, the simplicity of Schabarum's writing is a marvel. Compact sentences brim with an appreciation for character and the lonely expanse of suburban life. The constantly shifting characters become inextricably linked in different ways, until they ultimately separate, finding freedom in loss and letting go.

A somber exploration of the confines of suburban life and the secrets that can sustain or suffocate." - Kirkus Reviews

I bought this book after reading the author's previous book "The Palisides" (also a great read). The story was character-driven and the characters were real, facing real problems. What I loved most about the book was that they were all going through something difficult -- stuff that was very relatable and identifiable. How their paths and stories intertwined is what makes this book so special. Read it... you won't regret it. And check out The Palisades as well.

Love this read! This author does such a great job of character development the reader may forget they are fictional characters. This is something that really draws me into a good story. I live in the Kansas City area and also appreciate the details of the area. You can really get a feel for Midwestern living at the time. This story delves into traumatic life events and how people respond. The details of their feelings and their response to these feelings are troubling. I found myself becoming emotionally involved in the story as well. I look forward to the sequel!!

This is an amazing read. Right from the first page, you will be drawn into the lives and minds of the characters the inhabit this thoughtful, well-developed novel. Just as he did in his previous novel, The Palisades, Mr. Schabarum creates characters that are so real-to-life it's as if you might know them. Or might be them. The people in this book all carry a scar of a life not ideal. It's these scars, these flaws, that make them so very relatable. You will want to know what happens to these people. You will find it hard to put this book down. When it's over, you will feel a sense of loss that you no longer have a view into their lives. I don't often recommend books. But this one is a gem.

Airstreaming is a literary accomplishment that deserves much recognition. The characters are introduced and then become intertwined as the multi-layered onion of their inner secrets and demons is slowly peeled back. It is a very emotional book where you feel the personal challenges of the characters and root for their success. These successes don’t always come and when they do come they are not quite what we expected. Airstreaming confronts issues of societal taboo and presents them in the same slow, often incomplete way knowledge of these matters comes to us in real life. The story telling pulls the reader into the book and forces us to make our own assumptions without having the complete set of facts that we would like. This style not only delivers the story but causes us to think about our own believes and experiences. I look forward to reading more work by Tom Schabarum.

The story starts out slowly introducing the characters and then builds momentum as you are inserted into the lives of people you have come to know and care about. Only then do you discover the secrets hidden deep within each character.
I am hoping for a sequel to find out what happens next.

Instead of "streaming" I was "RVing" when I saw a beautiful airstream with this book cover on the side. Intrigued, I downloaded the book. After reading only a few chapters, I downloaded his other two books as well, he is that good of an author! If you like good storytelling without all the extra sex fluff like me, then you are going to love this author! I can't wait for another book where this one left off! I'm waiting Tom!
