Favorite scene - simply because it so strongly portrayed the fact that life and love did still exist, even in the world as it was, I loved the scene at the pavilion when Connor approaches Riley privately. I'll say no more.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There are so many, from the scene of Riley comforting her daughter in need, to the passion with Connor, to the pure fury at Matt. Riley is a woman of vast emotion, like most of us are. Trish Dawson is a master at showing us Riley's full array of passion.
Any additional comments?
I typically read what I call “big books,” those with 800-1000+ pages, and that run anywhere from 40 to 60 hours on Audible. This novel is much shorter at just shy of 10 hours on Audible. As would be expected, the “big books” involve a lot of detail which lends to setting the stage, environment and atmosphere of the story. In “I Hope You Find Me,” Trish Marie Dawson manages to bring the reader into just as an intense immersion of the story with far less text. From moment one of listening to this book, I was connected to the main character and my attention never wavered from that moment. I was only sorry that due to my own schedule I was not able to listen non-stop. “I Hope You Find Me” is set in the aftermath of a world-wide calamity - - one that could conceivably occur, one that, though not the exact scenario, I have often imagined what I might do if found in a situation such as the one Riley has found herself in. I admire the way the author had Riley do some things that would, in normal circumstances, just make no sense at all - - but, of course, there is no such thing as normal circumstances in Riley’s life now. Any prospective readers - - if you enjoy post-catastropic stories of human survival and behavior, including the pain and the joy, you will not be disappointed in this one. I am looking forward to the next!
And don't get me started on the very physical ghost zombies who briefly show up a couple of times because the author thought they were a cool idea but didn't know what to do with them. the main character suddenly turns into a female Rambo at the end, which is blithely explained away by saying, "those few hours of target practice with Fin came in handy..." WTH? What few hours of target practice? We had target practice? Did someone erase portions of my e-book when i wasn't looking? Even the dog suddenly became a modern day Lassie at the end. "Zoey, go get Kris!" And the dog shoots away to rescue the kid. (Even though i mention an example at the end of the story, the author did this all the way through the book, explaining away some action or point by saying something along the lines of "we made some plans the day before..." "We pushed a cart along with stuff we gathered from a store, but I can't tell you what we got or even why we got it. suffice it to say we got stuff, and that should be enough to satisfy you and get us through until we ultimately get to the Lodge Straight Out Of A Magazine when we won't need any of that stuff anymore." "We found the car right where i left it..." We did? What plans? What stuff did we get? we went looking for your car? Where was I when all those things you mentioned happened? Did you consult a Magic 8-Ball when I wasn't looking?). My favorite moment came late in the story, during one of the main character's musing over what all has happened, she casually mentions how after the children died she had stayed in her house for several days after she burned their bodies... She did WHAT? I had to read that part several times to not only make sure I hadn't misread it, but so i could giggle - okay, laugh loudly - again and again. Come on, really?
