that everything s ridiculous " call names Less inclined to suggest that everything s ridiculous new version of self where I can somehow resist the urge to belittle the trolls who posit opinions as facts Naw who am I kidding Where s the fun in that The Wolf Road is a post apocalyptic story set in the near future However after the events of the Damn Stupid that future appears like our recent past

put off so easily and they re not the only ones hot on her trail So as you can probably guess from my introduction this was another book that most of my friends loved but of course I had a few issues with it The main one being that the ending was given away in the first chapter If you re ballsy enough to telegraph things to that extent you better blow me away with all the other elements of your story You better Grassroots Leviathan dazzle me with your wordsmithing amaze me with your characterevelopment fool me with a Twisty Narrative And Hidden narrative and hidden rock my world with an earth shattering climax and a tear jerking resolution Ah maybe I was asking too much Then again this novel was marketed as True Grit meets The Road I also wasn t a fan of the na. True Grit meets The Road in this postapocalyptic psychological thriller narrated by a young girl who has just learned that her adopted father may be a serial killer and that she may be his next victimIn the remote wilds of a ravaged land Elka has been raised by a man who isn't her father Since finding her wandering in the woods when she was seven he has taught her how to hunt shoot set snares and start fires ev. Rrative style a first person account from Elka s point of view As an uneducated na ve and extremely isolated young forest girl she tells her tale in a backwoods slang which eventually began to grate on my nerves Granted my tolerance for slang seems to coincide with my overall enjoyment of the story I ve read many stories where it never bothered me at all but here and in The Knife of Never Letting Go and parts of The Invisible Man that style annoyed me to no endLastly I want to briefly touch on character motivation Sorry but I just couldn t buy into Trapper s reasoning for hunting Elka or several of his actions Voices and Veils during the chase Not to mention with the law in hot pursuit it would seem wise for Trapper to be hightailing it in the oppositeirection This happened on page two so it s not much of a spoiler Elka you know I Facts and Features of English History, a Series of Alternating Reading and Memory Exercises don t mean you no harm His voice turned friendly I never hurt my Elka He wandered around like a blind man trudging through the snow steam lifting off his body Always hot after a killing He was lean carved out of wood some say and but for the tattoos had a face you 57 Ways to Screw Up in Grad School d take home to your mother He leaned up against a cottonwood tree panting to keep the cold out getting sick of hide and seek Could a killed you a hundred times girlie he said slow Could a taken my pig sticker and cut you neck to navel while you slept Could a peeled your skin off easy as boiled trout I remembered all those years calling him Daddy and felt sickBottom line The story started with a bang then wound back the clock and spent the remainder of its time working its way back to the beginning Knowing the outcomeetracted from the enjoyment of the chase and by the time the nasty revelations begin to flood in it was too little too late to salvage things for me Find all of my reviews at True Grit meets The Road For maybe the first time in the history of ever the powers that be got it rightThe usual suspects get the credit blame for me reading this one It Love in Bloom doesn t take much than that It s been like 36 hours since I have either been told how stupid I am or personally confirmed said stupidity so let me take a second to remind all of you Between the title and the cover and the amount of time it took me to actually read The Wolf Road my pitiful little brain hadecided it was going to be a story kinda like this one I m telling you So umb The Wolf Road is a real mind bender Although you are told that the story takes place after The Damn Stupid and the Second Conflict the world building consisting of the main character s parents umping her as a baby with her grandmother in order to participate in the gold rush and people living basically in wood shacks with no electricity and huntingforaging for food has your brain thinking of something like this But after you get the The Alcohol Bible description of man who adopts for lack of a better term Elka after her gran passes It finally sinks in that this is a whole new Wild Wild West You know but not shitty like that oneAnd thennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn when Elka finds out the truth about ol Trapper I suppose it ain t what sifferent now that s fearful I said it s what stayed the same I Hermetic Alchemy Science and Practice The Golden Dawn Alchemy Series 2 don t even know what to say about this one I can tell you it sifferent from anything you ve read and the only reason it s getting 45 stars instead of 5 is because i idn instead of 5 is because I idn read it BWWM during the winter so I couldn t uite get as cold and miserable as I should have ARC provided by Crown Publishing in exchange for an honest review Novel is pert near perfect One slight complaint I got is that some parts is a mite hard to read Made my head spun theyone Morning by Morning: How We Home-Schooled Our African-American Sons to the Ivy League did Cruise willin and the creekon t rise I might give er another read one ay See what alls I might of misunderstood cuz it s writ all broke like Writing that first paragraph hurt my heart and soul I cannot fathom writing s writ all broke like Writing that first paragraph hurt my heart and soul I cannot fathom writing entire novel like Beth Lewis wrote The Wolf Road I once wrote a cannot fathom writing entire novel like Beth Lewis wrote The Wolf Road I once wrote a called Smitten in this style and to this ay I want to go back and rewrite it In both my story and Lewis s novel the first person hick speak is warranted but Tom Cruise wept it s hard to read at times I honestly would ve given this five stars if I hadn t needed to reread entire paragraphs to figure out what the silly fuck Elka was saying Halfway th I found The Wolf Road to have a compelling and easy to read style The protagonist is one of the strongest females that I ve read and I found how she survived several early traumas to be mostly believable If you are looking for strong female characters and a variety of them you will enjoy this book This was a book that was hard to put BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) down even if it strained my willful suspension ofisbelief in several important places Grounding a story in reality is very important to me even when it s a fantasy or a futuristic tale A bit of that grounding and this would have been a five star read for me I know a lot of readers will be able to coast past the things that bothered me For a fast and adventurous read with unus Trapper was my family even though I idn t know a sure thing about him Trapper was the kind a family you choose for your. Erything she needs to survive All she knows of the world outside is gleaned from whispers of a cataclysmic event that turned the clock back on civilization by a hundred and fifty years and reduced governments and technology to shambles leaving men at the mercy of the elements and each other Everything changes when Elka learns that the man she has been calling father is harboring a terrible secret Armed with no. .
