Poisoned Soil Paperback – September 20, 2012
Tim Young's novel Poisoned Soil is a simple story that deals with complex issues. The prose seems to be an all-American version of magical realism, that Garcia Marquez / Isabel Allende technique of making reality magical and magic real. You will enjoy every minute that you're reading this book--the characters, the settings, the battles between man and nature, and, of course, that magical realism. With all these elements, this still is a thriller, a real page-turner. Moreover, it's a very original piece of literature that will leave you thinking...and wondering. - Bookpleasures.Com Review

Anyway it took three tries before I settled in for the journey. My initial thought was that it was pretty slow. But I really liked the author's Accidental Farmers and I'm familiar with the area where the story takes place. Maybe you just have to be in the right mood!
The third time had the charm. Like climbing a mountain, the book slowly ascends through the foothills and then ramps up to weave the plot through the switcbacks of the steeper wilds. By this point you will be hooked!
I know. I've been there.
I hope the author continues to write.
It is original in many ways and ties together nicely in the end. This is one of the best books I ever read and I read
a book or two weekly. This is one you won't soon forget because it is different and loosely relevant to our times. I also want to mention that the character development is very good.
Plus it is a lot of fun. Lastly, I am so happy that we can read books written by anybody who wants to write one and puts it out on a Kindle. If you miss this author, you are missing a lot. Just a terrific read. Thanks to the author for such a great story.
Still it is a good story, not hard to read, and although a little forced and predictable, it is a short read so it doesn't try to keep you waiting for the end.
This is for anyone that cares about the environment, and wants a quick afternoon read.
