Official Review: Drive East Until You Hit An Ocean

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

The title sounds so fun, but when I saw the cover, I knew it wasn't for me.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I agree, but also the subject matter...It sounds like I would be on the opposite end of the polarizing spectrum. Not my kind of book, but great review :)

The cover, the title and that quote have me hooked. The fact that it is well edited is a plus for me.

Based on the cover, I thought it was a zombie story. LOL But then you mentioned, it even has a poem. Wow! What a diversity! I'm not sure it is for me,though. I may have to read some pages first to see if I love it or hate it.

Your review made the book so engrossing and palatable for my taste. I must admit, I gobble up anything. But I take the choicest one of any genre. Thanks for your wonderful and informative review.
