We Are Unprepared by Meg Little Reilly #FRC2016 #BookReview

 
 
Ash and Pia's move from Brooklyn to the bucolic hills of Vermont was supposed to be a fresh start—a picturesque farmhouse, mindful lifestyle, maybe even children. But just three months in, news breaks of a devastating superstorm expected in the coming months. Fear of the impending disaster divides their tight-knit rural town and exposes the chasms in Ash and Pia's marriage. Ash seeks common ground with those who believe in working together for the common good. Pia teams up with "preppers" who want to go off the grid and war with the rest of the locals over whom to trust and how to protect themselves. Where Isole had once been a town of old farm families, yuppie transplants and beloved rednecks, they divide into paranoid preppers, religious fanatics and government tools.





Meg Little Reilly previously worked for President Obama as deputy communications director for the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and prior to that as spokesperson at the US Department of the Treasury.

She currently lives in the Boston area with her husband and two daughters.



For me this one wast great but ok.  The writing was good, the characters ok.  But the story just didnt do much for me.  I think a lot of the side things that were going on could have been removed and the author could have focused more on the storm etc.  As the side stories didnt bring much to the doom that the character's were facing.  All in all it was an ok read.
