Ooh boy This book tried to do too much and did it dully Is this a commentary on grief Or is this a commentary on climate change You can have both narratives in the same story but make it interesting For being adult women the characters displayed a lot of teen angst and were really one note and boring The whole plane crash due to climate change was unnecessary The way it was tied to the grief storyline was flimsy at best and lazy at worst And as someone who curses like a sailor I found the f word to be used a little gratuitously Maybe because I didn t get a personality from either of the main characters the use of the f word just did not seem to fit Anyway this is not a bad book in terms of being offensive or problematic IMO But it was definitely not the book for me

A very well written literary novel The Desert Sky Above Us is a step up from my usual mysterythriller On the surface it s the story of a road trip taken by two sisters after their mother s death As the sisters drive across the country following clues left by their archaeologist mother they begin to really talk to each other for the first time in years unraveling thread by thread secret hurts and long held misunderstandings Beautiful detailed descriptions of scenes along the way made me almost believe I was taking the long ride along with them The only uibble I have with this novel is the climate change warning theme woven throughout was sometimes a little heavy handed

READ & DOWNLOAD The Desert Sky Before Us Anne Valente ↠ 0 DOWNLOAD REVIEW â PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Anne Valente From award winning author Anne Valente comes this poignant and unforgettable literary novel of two estranged sisters one a former racecar driver and the other a recently released prisoner who embark on a road trip together to complete the scavenger hunt their mother designed for them before her deathWhen Billie is released from a correctional facility in Decatur her sister Rhiannon is there to meet her even though the two haven’t seen each other in months Painful secrets and numerous u. Anne Valente Took me along on this road trip of discovery with her descriptive writing Sisters Billie and Rhiannon set out on a road trip mapped buy their mother who insists they take the trip after her death Billie has just been released after being incarcerated for the past six years and Rhiannon is still coming to terms with no longer being a racecar driver Their mother has given them a journal with map coordinates and crude drawings that will lead them on a treasure hunt of sorts Along the way not only will they find the treasures left behind by their mother but they will also reveal secrets and become reacuainted with one another The writing in this book was so descriptive I felt as though I was right along with the sisters on this road trip through the south west I have driven on a lot of the same roads that these sisters took and I thought the author did a really good job with bringing this area of the US to the pages Now I didn t necessarily know all the dinosaur stuff going on and I found that very interesting The beginning of the book was really compelling I was really intrigued by the sisters and their back stories I wanted to know why Billie was incarcerated and why Rhiannon no longer drove race cars As the book progressed I began to care less I really had a hard time relating to both of these girls I could not understand their motivations and if I m being honest they both seemed a bit self serving This is what makes this hard for me to review On one hand I really liked the concept of the book and the descriptive writing On the other hand I just found these characters a bit hard to like Generally I can like or even love a book with characters I don t like But in this type of book I think I really needed to feel of a connection to the characters in order to truly love the book The sisters did get to know each other better throughout the story and I think they really began to repair their relationship however I didn t see much in the way of personal growth Having said this I think this might be a case of this not being the right book for me I think some people will really relate to these characters and for them this will be an incredibly special book 710 Big thanks to William Morrow for my copy of this book
