review Galveston ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Believe that they might encounter something there that most people take great measures to avoid a hurricaneA lottery windfall and a few hours of selfishness have robbed Caldwell of all that was precious to him while Beverly haunted by tragedy and screwed by fate since birth has given up on life Also on the flight is Jimmy Newton a professional storm chaser and videographer who will do anything for the perfect shot Waiting for them at Dampier is the manager o. I picked up this strange book purely because of the title I ve never read any other books by this prolific author The book is hard to describe The plot centers around a few people who with different degrees of intentionality find themselves on a small island during a major hurricane Three weather weenies wanted to be where the storm was two vacationers landed there by accident and three residents of the island basically live there Plus the mostly dropped sideline of two property owners who came to look after their property during the stormThe description of the storm and the reverence for the energy of weather was compelling None of the characters was particularly lovable with the possible exception of the pirate descended Maywell but I was absorbed by their stories And a few of the sarcastic observations of the book were both darkly comic and wonderful in the land of the damned there is no nap time Unfortunately the resolution didn t uite work for me and I found myself wishing for hope or optimism or something for the charactersThe writing was compelling enough that I d be interested to read other books by this author but I m not sure I ll be rushing to recommend this one

review Galveston ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub From one of Canada’s beloved fiction writers comes a tale of love and loss guilt and forgiveness and finding redemption in the eye of a hurricaneFew people seek out the tiny Caribbean island of Dampier Cay Visitors usually wash up there by accident rather than by design But this weekend three people will fly to the island deliberately They are not coming for a tan or fun in the sun They are coming because Dampier Cay is where it is and they have reason to. Galveston ended up being better than I expected Before reading this book I had read one other book by uarrington and thought it was OK but nothing special It was good enough that I wanted to explore another one of his novels but not spectacular to make me breathless with anticipation Galveston has an intriguing premise A group of strangers arrive on the island of Dampier Cay located in the Carribean some looking for fun in the sun others who are weather weenies hoping that hurricane Claire would blow over this tiny island Most of the characters are damaged in some way damaged in such a way that their decisions run to the extreme If the reader has some idea of what the title Galveston stands for they will have some idea of where the story is headed uarrington explains what happened in Galveston than a century before the time when this story is set and that knowledge hangs over the book like a dark stormy expectation It is for the most part a character driven book but with a or less but with an ensemble cast Most of the characters are uirky but reasonably drawn Overall a fun interesting story well written and thoughtful Recommended to people who like uirky characters with disparate motivations dealing with extreme situations
