We Are Unprepared
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.
