THE LAST TRIBE by BRAD MANUEL
The Last Tribe - Brad Manuel

Audiobook

I sometimes like my apocalyptic books to be a little less murder, rape and pillage and this book was exactly that. I'm hoping the author will write a follow-up book just to see if they were able to rescue more people and because I enjoyed this book a lot. There are some unbelievable parts like what the former jobs were for key people. What a wonderful coincidence! But even with that, I loved the book.

DAWN by Erin Hunter
Dawn - Erin Hunter

Twolegs have been destroying the Clans' homes and they must leave.  Following the five young cats who have returned with Midnight's message they leave and head towards the mountains to find a new home.

 

There is a lot of action and adventure as the Clans unite to fight the Twolegs and to save some of the Clans.  There is the infighting as the Clans must decide to leave or stay.  Firestar will not leave without all the Clans going together.  Pride gets in some of the Clans' way.  I shed many a tear as the Twolegs are capturing the cats; we are losing some of the older and younger ones; and as we remember those who have gone to the StarClan.  Cloudpaw's warrior ceremony wiped me out.

 

I cannot wait to see what happens in their travels.

The Tribe: Birth Of The Mall Rats - Harry Duffin I'm going to be marked as reading this forever more. I cannot mark it as "read" no matter what I do!

I Found My Tribe by Ruth Fitzmaurice
I Found My Tribe - Ruth Fitzmaurice

A special thank you to NetGalley and Bloomsbury USA for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This rambling, manic at times, narrative is a raw and honest book about living with MND (here in Canada known as ALS—amyotrophic lateral sclerosis—or Lou Gehrig's disease). Ruth Fitzmaurice's filmmaker husband, Simon, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2008. He is wheelchair-bound, not able to move or breathe on his own, and can only communicate through the use of an eye gaze computer. It is these eyes that Ruth uses as the windows in which to find her husband—she knows he is still in there even though he can't speak to her, or touch her.

Ruth and Simon are parents to five children, all under the age of ten. As if that weren't chaos enough, there is a constant parade of nurses that come and go 24 hours a day, and a gaggle of pets including an aggressive basset hound. One of the many challenges Ruth faces is to find any sort of peace in the chaos, any moment of stillness and calm to keep her sane and grounded. She craves connections, whether it be to her "Tragic Wives' Swimming Club", or to her favourite nurse, Marian. Human connection is so important to survival, especially in times of tragedy.

Fitzmaurice doesn't use any type of timeline, or write in any kind of order. Instead, she chunks her staccato type narrative into mini essays. To be honest, it took me a while to get into her groove, there are times where she is all over the place and scattered and it feels like she has simply taken every thought in her head and put it on the page in order to make sense of her life. While this type of writing doesn't appeal to everyone, it works for this book. This memoir is raw, honest and heartbreaking, while at the same time showing the beauty of love. It inspires, and demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit. Ruth is unabashedly open with her thoughts and feelings and I think she is incredibly brave to bare her life in this way.

Human Tribe by Alison Wright
Human Tribe - Alison Wright

I love photography books. The pictures in them can take you all over the world. This book is no different. In this book there are over 160 photographs of people. They range from babies to very old. Some have backgrounds others are just close ups of faces. There is beauty in everyone of these faces. Eyes are said to be the window to the soul. The eyes in these photos are very expressive and beautiful. The photos in this book range from the mid 1990's to 2016. They are from all over the world. There are no words in the book other than the introduction. The pictures themselves tell the tale in this book. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
