Book Review: We Are Unprepared



We Are Unprepared

 3.65  ·   Rating Details  ·  51 Ratings  ·  24 Reviews
Ash and Pia's move from Brooklyn to the bucolic hills of Vermont was supposed to be a fresh start—a picturesque farmhouse, mindful lifestyle, maybe even children. But just three months in, news breaks of a devastating superstorm expected in the coming months. Fear of the impending disaster divides their tight-knit rural town and exposes the chasms in Ash and Pia's marriage. Ash seeks common ground with those who believe in working together for the common good. Pia teams up with "preppers" who want to go off the grid and war with the rest of the locals over whom to trust and how to protect themselves. Where Isole had once been a town of old farm families, yuppie transplants and beloved rednecks, they divide into paranoid preppers, religious fanatics and government tools.

Lori's thoughts**We Are Unprepared generously provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.** 

I read the first chapter of this book online via the publisher. Man, oh man. The first chapter was really good, and I thought that it would be a great read so I requested a copy through NetGalley. 

It's not that the book was bad. It's just that it wasn't good, either. There were good parts to the storyline and there were many things that probably would happen in the event that something like this was to happen. There were side stories in addition to the story of The Storm. Like main character Ash and the neglected neighbor child. This was a good aside. The romance between Ash and Pia and their inability to have children at the onset of the book. I just felt like there was a lot of "extra stuff" that didn't contribute much to the overall impending doom and disaster the title suggests. The author could have removed a lot of the stuffing and added more about the actual storm and its aftereffects. There are so many ways this could have gone that would have been much more exciting. In my opinion.
