This review might be a little bias since the climax happens blocks from my freaking house. More likely it is a dang good book. Because who wouldn't love a book narrated by a Seattle crow with an identity crisis and a moderate-to-severe Cheeto addiction who quotes Russell Wilson?

More than just for laughs. There are lessons on family, leadership, teamwork, and being connected to this beautiful world. Read it for Twinkies sakes!

Enjoyable. There were some neat post apocalyptic themes in the book that I haven't seen explored in the genre before, but by the end of the book I was a little weary of this world. Also, I didn't care at all for the “Prophet“ as a character. It gave me to many vibes of the Governor from Walking Dead season 3.

I'm moving on Saturday but feel too exhausted to worry about packing. So I went to the library after work and picked up this stack. How have I not read The Road yet??

MY RATING⇢ 4 STARS | GRADE B+The writing in this story really worked its way into my bones, but in a sad, depressing way, so much so, that I found myself not wanting to listen to it. This coupled with my issues with the narration had me not enjoying this story as much as I could have. But...I stuck with it, and I am so glad I did because this story does have something worthwhile to impart. Plus, the ending is amazing!

Station Eleven: found out that I did not like post apocalyptic.

A Conspiracy of Violence - very slow, tedious read. I think historical mystery would hold my interest better.

Maid - I found the author of this memoir a constant complainer and the book was one pity-party.

2019 was a good reading year. I read 200 books:
96 - 5 star reads
84 - 4 star reads
15 - 3 star reads
3 - 2 star reads
2 - 1 star reads

Crazeedi Oh no, I put conspiracy on my kindle along with the 2nd and maybe the 3rd one🤨 5d
EadieB @Crazeedi You may like it! Give it a try! Don‘t go by me! Others like her writing! 5d
lele1432 I regretted Maid as well. But only five 1 and 2 star books out of 200?! That‘s excellent!! 5d

EadieB @lele1432 I read a lot of mystery series that I have read for years so I know they will be 5 or 4 stars even before I read them. 5d
lele1432 Ah that‘s smart! I‘m hoping to read more of what I know I like this year so I don‘t get so many duds lol. 5d
Eggs Great interpretation ❣️❣️ 5d
EadieB @Eggs Always try to associate the prompt to books. 5d

the premise of this book (zombie apocalypse from the perspective of a domesticated crow/various animals) really shouldn't work as well as it does but somehow Buxton really nails it. I had some minor issues with the slight choppiness of her writing style at the beginning but the 2nd half of the book is very engrossing and also succeeded on an emotional level. S.T. as a character is absurdly 'my brand' it's not even funny.

I haven‘t posted on here in forever, but I‘m back and a goal for 2020 is to keep up with my posts. 😁😁 As for this book... so not a fan. I get that the gist of the story was the journey on the road but it was too repetitive for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

My first read of 2020-and it my was it a great one!!!This book was an easy one to binge and I find it glorious that this book is a stand alone and was so well crafted during it‘s short 300 pages. I loved that it‘s not your typical apocalypse survival story,but so so much more... “ Because Survival is insufficient.” Highly recommend this beautifully written story. It has for sure earned a spot on my favorite books of all time list. ❤️

#currentlyreading This book keeps bringing up all my favorite places. I thought I was going to spend the weekend hiding from bad weather but looks like I'll have to make a visit to Woodinville Whiskey!
