I loved the character of Bill he was an in your face person with lots of comic relief and had great interaction with Shelby and Max. It’s hard for me not to put part of the plot twist here but will only say it would have been so cool to throw a Monty Pythonizm in here.
You saw the friendships between Shelby, Max, Patrick and Bianca in the first book, but it takes friendship to the next level in the book, while all of them were willing to lose their lives over finding the medication for Shelby’s son Carter. My husband is diabetic and he is also a truck driver and I worry about him eating right and taking his insulin while on the road, but it is Type 2, which is way more controllable than Type 1 especially when diagnosed at the age of 4 like Carter.
God was so much an underlying presence in this book, in situations like this if something like this ever happens we need to have hope, we need to remember that God does win the war against evil. Ms. Chapman does a remarkable job in mixing that in and allowing the reader some thought provoking introspectiveness.
I loved this book and it was so cool that Amazon released the book early on e-reader format, my husband heard a shout across the house when I said “YES!” he had to make sure I was ok. And with me stopping reading what I was reading to start reading the second book he downloaded the first book to start the series.
I wouldn’t call us preppers but I do recommend people get the basics for at least a month if something like there were to happen. Also if you keep dry beans and the like is air tight containers they can last longer than the shelf life of the product.
Thank you for a good weekend of reading! =)
Vanetta Chapman wondered all those things and has written an amazing book, Raging Storm.
Small town Texas, it happened, a solar flare and no one expected this...the total chaos, friends turning on friends, complete ransacking of grocery stores, panic...but yet, there remains those who would still share what they have with those who do not. But what if your child is an insulin-dependent diabetic?
Raging Storm is a stunning novel of the speculative genre. Well-worth the read. You won't be able to put it down, I promise.
PS. If you haven't read the first in the series, Deep Shadows!
Honestly, Carter's parts were my favorite in this installment, and I found myself understanding and appreciating his perspective quite a bit. I love how, even with everything he's been through, he still looks for ways to apply his knowledge and ingenuity to help make other people's lives better. Also, I totally understood how difficult it would be for him to know that others were risking their lives for his and not be allowed to do anything to help it. Oh, and I adored his relationship with Roy and Georgia! <3
Shelby, on the other hand, annoyed me rather badly at times. For one thing, I couldn't figure out why she thought the chaos in Austin wasn't going to be exponentially worse than the chaos in Abney. Granted, there are certain things that don't make rational sense (like people burning perfectly good buildings for no reason), but I felt like a lot of problems that knocked Shelby for a loop were rather foreseeable. Also, her apparent assumption that they were just going to be able to waltz into Austin, find the insulin, and trade for it without any knowledge of the lay of the land was a bit baffling, and when combined with her impatience every time they had to take a detour or wait for someone who could help them, it became downright frustrating. Maybe her impatience would have been more understandable if they had been up against a tighter deadline--say, if Carter had only had a week's supply of insulin left--but as it was, every time Shelby started to complain about how long it was taking, I wanted to stare at her and ask, "What did you expect?" My frustration with her on that point in particular made it a little hard to empathize with her as much as I wanted to.
I did love all her friends and the way they surrounded and supported her--that scene near the end... *sobs* And while I had guessed the generalities of one character's revelation, I had not guessed the specifics, and I had to backtrack and revise my mental image of a certain character a bit. :) I also enjoyed getting to know several of the peripheral characters as well.
The near-total anarchy did come with a fair bit of violence, and I liked the fact that the characters acknowledged the moral dilemmas they faced, although there weren't a lot of straightforward answers. I did hesitate at one point when Shelby was mulling over the lengths she'd go to to protect Carter's insulin supply--is it the same as self-defense when you're protecting something necessary to someone's survival?--but overall, I thought the author did a good job of not shying away from how difficult these issues are, even in a survival scenario.
I was a little confused by the ending--not sure why it ends on a cliffhanger when the next book appears to pick up months afterward--but maybe that will become clear in the next one. I'm still very curious how or whether they're going to solve the problem of a long-term insulin supply with society in the state that it is at the moment...
