    • ”Any case, all the digital whatnot is gone, as is all the geeks what made ‘em. And with ‘em went the power, water, and wherewithal to keep the world in some semblance of livability. As I look at it, when you got a world ruled by geeks that’s got too complicated for even the geeks to comprehend, it’s an epic cluster-fuck waiting to happen, which is exactly what did happen, thereby once and forever ending everything down into this present sinkhole of total, irreversible uselessness.”I [...]

    • At times I thought back to my days living on a Kibbutz in Israel while reading Rick Moss's book. When the Yom Kippur war broke out, some of the American volunteers not only started to panic but their speaking turned to blame. The Israelis put and end to their behavior. No way would they tolerate outspoken nastiness. In this story.A community of folks- each with different backgrounds have come together as their "Colony family". It's a place to express love and ideals - and a place to heal. But w [...]

    • The best example of storytelling-as-plot in all history probably belongs to our almighty Geoffrey Chaucer. No plot? Well For a master, this might actually seem to present no problem at allLet the players themselves color their shared route towards Canterbury Cathedral. The journey is waaaay more important than the destination. If anything, this physical collaboration, the one unifying collective direction, is largely irrelevant to some extent. In his new, very modern (postapocalipticalish) novel [...]

    • The cells on average in the human body are replaced every seven years. So what are we? What assures our continuity? What over the course of our lives constitutes the discrete individual each of us refers to as 'me'?People are their stories. In fact, history is the aggregation of millions of individual stories into a collective narrative which attempts to embrace the substance, style, direction, purpose of all those individual stories.In this highly unique and creative novel, we are thrust into t [...]

    • **I received this book from the author in exchange for a review**This is one of the most unique books, I have read in a long time. At first, I did not understand what the author was trying to do because the timeline jumps around a little. It didn't take long to get hooked, though. This would have been a completely different book if the author chose to write the story in a linear fashion and just "told" the reader what happened. By showing us the story through the viewpoints of the various charac [...]

    • Pull up a stoop and listen!It has taken me awhile to review this because I wanted to do justice to Tellers. Some thoughts: Writing is exact, gorgeous and rich. Offers haunting visuals, some of which come up for me as I think about our current national angst. While the issues are contemporary and old, both, I often think how remarkably prescient Rick has been in naming the deeper currents that have surfaced so glaringly right now.He brings a wickedly keen mind to his characters. There is a wide a [...]

    • 3.5 stars really, but after all the updates, still doesn't allow half stars. Ha. Finally getting around to reviewing this book. All in all, I really enjoyed the book. It took me a little longer to get into it than I usually like (maybe sixty pages or so), but once I had gotten into it, I was into it, if that makes any sense. At first, it is a little hard to understand what is going on. You kind of get thrown into this story, and you're like, "Wait. what? Go back" But then, you get into the swin [...]

    • First off, I received this book for free from the Giveaway.Second, I feel a lot of things about this book and not everything might make sense, but do know I loved this book and people who enjoy dystopian novels more in the vein of Station Eleven (less actiony I mean) or the show Black Mirror should totally read it.Now, this book was a total surprise. I remember being interested in the synopsis, interested enough to enter the giveaway. Boy and I glad I did. For such a short book, it built an ext [...]

    • A Story About Story Tellers and Their Dystopian Thriller I found this work to be brilliant in its originality of goal and premise. To be able to portray several wonderful "Tellers", requires skill beyond simply one style of storytelling. Also the deterioration of society was of a plausible degree and not at all too far fetched. Meanwhile the underlying events were tantalizingly pieced together via alternating movements backward/forward in time and from the various storyteller points of view. I w [...]

    • This was an absolute joy to read.The characters became so known to me, despite the how relatively short this book is. Though their stories, we learn so much about them - whether that be an abstract ideology or cold hard facts about their life experiences.I also enjoyed the structure of the chapters, as we as the readers were drawn into the 'event', projecting and then backfilling my views on the characters.I'll certainly be looking out for other work by Rick Moss.This was one as a Giveaway, so [...]

    • This was a pretty good read. I enjoy the way the author told thr story. It was a quick and interesting read. Loved the colors on the cover.
