PTH Rating:



When I was a kid, I feel like the lights went out so darn often. Just so we are clear, the bill was paid, it was the whole neighborhood that would lose power. The worst that would happen in these situations, waaay back in the 80's, was that your alarm wouldn't go off, you couldn't watch TV, and the food in the fridge and freeze could be wasted. Obviously, that's not the world we live in anymore.  Can any of us live without our phones? NO.

The story is told from a unique perspective though - an Amish community in Pennsylvania.  While I appreciated the different view of the world, I was more interested in what was happening in the city that was falling apart than in the rural community on the fringe of the main action. The novel is well-written and realistic, but just not the story I wanted to read.
