Editorial Reviews

Review

"I liked Pleasant Hurricanes very much. I like its panorama...involving so many different characters from diverse backgrounds. -- Ernest Gaines, author of "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman"

An exciting new-age Canterbury Tales with the different stories and adventures that each character encounters on their trip. -- Dwan G. Hightower author of "Anthrax: The Game"

In a first novel best described as a new age marriage between Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and MTV’s "Road Rules." -- The Texas Review...Reviewed by Dorothy Dodge Robbins, PhD

From the Publisher

Sim Shattuck's novel is a modern day Canterbury Tales with the reader being able to relate to each characters tale. The exciting adventures and the sad mishaps, the coming of age of each traveler and the discovering of new facets of each personality leads a whole new insight into the world today. This is a great read and we look forward to publishing Shattuck's next novel Basilisk with great anticipation.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing, original work. A group of disparate misfits from Palmyra, Texas comes together to form a 'crazy caravan'. Their odyssey takes them through Mexico into tropical Belize. The eccentric Elena, matriarch of the caravan, is in search of a profound personal revelation which is to be delivered to her atop a Mayan pyramid. All of the characters, young and old alike, are each in their way yearning for a sign, a new start. Mr. Shattuck's novel is permeated by a sort of compassionate mysticism and humor which only deepens as his characters wend their way through the Yucatan jungles. I recommend this book to all readers.
