opponent chooses even if that means running the risk of opposing the views of Abhijat and Sarala the parents of her daughter s bestriend The beauty of this story is Spain in Mind found in the intertwining of complex science historical American tradition and the constant strivingor the idiosyncratic idea of community which The Inheritance: Part 1 fashions our everyday realities As the perspectiveor each side of the argument is presented without partiality shown to either Kolaya never seems to make clear which side she supports This novel steers clear of an agenda Many of the chapters are headlined with uotes which act as clues on a treasure map inviting readers to embark on a search The Curious World Of Christmas for the essence of the story What may be significance is the placement of an Indianamily within a Midwestern prairie town or an explorer in search of an untouched land The public opposition to the particle accelerator is expected however there may be significance in the act that the scientists are unable to relate to the protesting townspeople using laymen s terms Perhaps this shows that the risks associated with progress are not always obvious and that these progressive scientists are unable to connect with their humanity In whatever way we choose to read this story it will undoubtedly leave us with the uestion of which side would you choose Scientific logic or ear of the unknown This deceptively complex uestion lies at the heart of this story Any way you choose to answer this uestion and align yourself will be the genesis of an identifiable connection to either Abhijat s or Randolph s The Best Canadian Animal Stories family While many of the characters are drawn on opposite ends of the spectrum which is expected given the nature of the subject their uirks and eccentricities make them all somewhat relatable Beyond the mainocus of the divide over the proposed particle accelerator are the endearing stories of riendship and love which elegantly accent the story What was most enjoyable was the personal endearments of the characters as they evolved becoming complex and intriguing and as a result unpredictable I thoroughly enjoyed reading this inely crafted work which sits on the ringes of the rontier as one of the The Commemerative first of its kind With an ambitiousirst novel Kolaya has written intelligent

comes The Yankee Club forth to build a superconducting supercollider at the lab the twoamilies ind themselves on opposite sides of a debate that threatens to racture their small community As a small town resident myself the book totally hit home The Catholic Home: Celebrations and Traditions for Holidays, Feast Days, and Every Day for me Kolaya did a lot of research into real debates about theirst supercolliders and that research really grounds the story But even this is a wonderful story of ambition and community rooted in six well drawn and wonderful main characters This one is highly recommended Kim Ukurafrom The Best Books We Read In October In 1972 Abhijat earns a job at a world renowned particle accelerator lab located in a small Illinois town He brings his new wife Sarala Green Metropolis: The Extraordinary Landscapes of New York City as Nature, History, and Design from Bombay to join him and they each take their own approach to settling into their marriage and

The Magic Cake Shop from the twoamilies grow up to become the best of riends But when the government proposes building a much larger collider beneath the town everyone takes sides in the debate and tensions riseThis story of two amilies and a town divided contains a lot of great interpersonal dynamics I enjoyed getting to know all the characters whose complicated and evolving eelings or one another are well depicted Where the novel Beauty is a Verb: The New Poetry of Disability fell shortor me was plot Kolaya sets up a variety of promising conflicts but issues with balance and pacing made the story drag at times Still I ll remember these characters The Curious World of Wine: Facts, Legends, and Lore About the Drink We Love So Much fondly and I ll look outor Kolaya s next novel Technically American Hunger: The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Washington Post Series finished on January 1st but I want it to countor 2015 Really liked this book and the super sweet ending really warmed my heart I love immigration stories and I really liked the short chapters made up of even shorter snippets which made the book very uick to read I liked some of the uirks like the index of the girls 4th grade report and wished there had been a ew like the index of the girls 4th grade report and wished there had been a ew I just really liked this story set against the backdrop of the Midwest in the 70s and 80s its characters and how the whole thing wrapped up This is a deceptively simple book harrowing and heartwrenching a book about love expectation masculinity and the ways in which the world wrenches control out of our hands This is a wonderful elegant book I will admit however that this could have been an absolutely exceptional book except #For The Final 40 Pages That Allow The Book To #the The Void final 40 pages that allow the book to too gently and resolves the character arcs somewhat arbitrarily I still highly recommend this book to anyone interested in science small rural communities and experiences of other ness I just only wish theinal stretch didn t The Poke Cookbook: The Freshest Way to Eat Fish feel uite so disappointing This book takes a complex area of physics and weaves it into a charming story about the changing dynamics of community the journey of self discovery the awaking that occurs through life experience maturity and the acceptance of things beyond our control The characters are engaging and endearing This should be on your reading list this year Picked this up to pre read as a possibilityor one of the library s book groups since the author is local and would be available to participateI can t believe how uickly I was sucked in and plowed through the story which takes place during the 1970s and 1980s in Illinois where a proposed supercollider might be built This sets up us vs the science vs town scientists vs normal people neighbor against neighbor and amily against amilyThe two The Somme: Heroism and Horror in the First

ARE OUTSIDERS IN A SMALL TOWN 
outsiders in a small town two daughters are exceptionally clever and curious the two athers are exceptionally passionate and successful Sadly the two mothers tend towards Marge Simpson dutiful vaguely unsatisfied long suffering etc one develops an ambition the other an outside interest but neither of these seem to matter all that muchThe parallel stories are skilfully told in a very straightforward manner that also manages to be somewhat lyrical Characters are a little too perfect situations are a little too pat so it all eventually begins to seem like a able What "Is Ostensibly A Central Theme "ostensibly a central theme the book an investigation of Whether Ambition Provides Lasting Meaning ambition provides lasting meaning satisfaction is handled in a perfunctory manner Fortunately the book does not depend on this because the growth of the characters provides sufficient interest It is a coming of age novel not just or the two girls but The Internet of Us: Knowing More and Understanding Less in the Age of Big Data for their parents as well For reviews of literaryiction by women see my blog wwwreadherlikeanopenbookcom Chrissy Kolaya s debut novel is set in a small town just beyond the edge of the Chicago suburbs during the 1980s and concerns the intersecting lives of two amiliesAbhijat Mital is a theoretical physicist rom India who works at the National Accelerator Research Laboratory in Nicolet Illinois He is a workaholic obsessed with making a breakthrough that will lead to the Nobel Prize in Physics and a legacy that will mean all his work was worthwhile His wife Sarala is devoted to Abhijat and to becoming an ideal American housewife and mother to their daughter Meena Randolph and Rose Winchester live in the same neighborhood Eagle s Crest a recently built subdivision near Abhijat s lab Randolph is a travel and adventure journalist and photographer who is gone much of the time while Rose concentrates on raising their precocious daughter Lily Rose is not just comfortable with her unorthodox marriage but proud of it She and Lily appear to manage uite well during Randolph s long absences which are punctuated by his Tempting Eden fascinating letters The two daughters both brilliant and driven by their ambitious eccentric parents becomeriends and thereby begin to draw the two very different sets of parents togetherSo we have two self absorbed husbands either physically or emotionally absent contrasted with two wives who are left to their own devices and eventually set off on journeys of self discovery Sarala comes out of her role as the dutiful Indian wife to become a successful Mary Kay saleswoman while Rose decides to run Talking to Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles, for mayor of Nicolet She grew up in Nicolet when it was just aarm town and believes she is the right person to guide it into a Talking to Dragons futureull of economic and social challengesThese charming particles begin to collide when the US Department of Energy announces that it is considering building a Superconducting Super Collider at the Nicolet lab or another location For Abhijat this represents a chance to make his dreams come true For Rose stopping the construction of the incomprehensible and seemingly dangerous SSC becomes the centerpiece of her campaign The two Three Times the Love families suddenlyind themselves on opposite sides of a very contentious dispute Suspicions run high among the residents most of whom do not seem to understand or perhaps even to want to understand what the SSC does Rumors run rampant about radiation potential explosions and the The Drowning Man fact that the SSC will run in a loop under their houses and the town itself To Kolaya s credit she handles this divisive issue with sensitivity presenting both sides in an evenhanded and compassionate manner The physicists are not presented solely as socially inept eggheads nor are the people of Nicolet depicted as simply ignorant paranoid and opposed to scientific progress These are three dimensional people whom we recognize and all of them are sympatheticThe other thread of Charmed Particles is the coming of age story involving Meena and Lily We watch as the two gifted students thrive while leaving their peersar behind But as with the calm perfect exurban town of the early portion of the book change is inevitable Kolaya explores the intellectual social and emotional lives of the girls which exist completely apart The Bride of Willow Creek from the lives of their otherwise attentive parents Kolaya reminds us that so much of parents lives remains a mystery to their children as do the children s lives to the parents usually because children are determined to maintain a secret lifeThe opposingorces in the various plot lines come together seamlessly in the last third of the book But the characters and events never seem stereotypical or obvious there is to everyone than meets the eye in Charmed Particles and that is one of its main pleasures The battle over the lab brings out the best and worst in people but also serves to move lives GREAT INVESTMENT, THE forward in unexpected but necessary ways It is the catalystor changes of a different type than those involved could have oreseen at the start No one is left unaffected Kolaya also deserves kudos or the uality of her writing Her prose is smooth and The Lively Art of Writing fluid and the narrative voice she has created is as satisfying asloating downstream on a sunny day You will ind yourself halfway through the book before you look up to see what time it is This is a novel that deserves a wider audience Kolaya has written a story with the perfect blend of ideas and people and readers will ind themselves thinking about all of them when they close the book
