Book Review: The Omnibus Edition of Rain by Joseph A. Turkot

2-16-2014 10-09-12 AMFirst presented as a series, this is the omnibus edition. Priced under $3 and well worth the price.

There are a few typos here and there that would only annoy an editor such as myself; they do not detract from the story itself. Turkot gets a bit long winded now and again, and I found myself skimming, but the storyline is a good one.

No zombies – thank you! Plenty enough action and conflict in this post-apocalyptic world of never ending rain.

The story continues in Snow. The first two episodes are out and the third is on the way this week (2/21/14). I am eagerly awaiting the next episode, so that should tell you something!

Every bit as good as Hugh Howey!

Walt Whitman says about his autobiography, Specimen Days “…At any rate I obey my happy hour’s command, which seems curiously imperative. May-be, if don’t do anything else, I shall send out the most wayward, spontaneous, fragmentary book ever printed.” This is what I feel at this juncture of my life, the need to gather together memories of my ancestors as well as my own memories into some semblance of order. Because all of those fragments, all of the fragments that make up any life, become stories. I am the mother of three sons, who affectionately (I hope!) call me 'gypsy mom' because I tend to wander around a bit soaking in the universe's wonders. I am currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. I have published essays with Heritage Press, Florida Living, and the St. Pauls Review. I am currently working on a book of poems about the Florida Everglades pioneers and a memoir about grief and the bonds of friendship. I live in my hometown, Jupiter, Florida and work as a freelance writer and curriculum specialist.
