It was time to cool my jets with the murder mystery novels and try out a new genre, social commentary. Notes From The Internet Apocalypse is a witty, satirical look at how the world would function with the loss of the Internet. The book is full of laughs, but also gets the reader thinking of how much dependence we allow ourselves on technology and what that dependence is turning us into as a society.
Strange Animals is a different beast. This novel will be the spark that ignites a hot debate in your book club. Karen, the lead protagonist, is an unmarried PhD candidate who becomes pregnant. Through the choices her pregnancy produces different religious views as well as different beliefs on sex and the roles men and women play in this world are explored.
