    • An interesting read, but at best a “fairly good book.” I’m certain that I was more disappointed by the vast differences in what the cover description led me to believe versus what actually happened in the novel. With phrases such as “forced immigrants overrun even the village of Locklee,” and “winter is coming and the infrastructure is not prepared to support this influx of families and lost souls,” I really expected an action-packed adventure that dealt with human survival on a pr [...]


    • Roberta M. Roy's, Jolt: A Rural Noir, is one of the best researched novels I have read in a long time. This is a book that you would want with you in any emergency situation, even though the story is fiction based. The information and the writing are so educational that you can see this as being a realistic event being told by the survivors for future civilians. I will admit, I got a tad side tracked by some of the flash backs, but that was such a minor issue it probable wasn't even worth mentio [...]


    • I received this book free in exchange for a review but despite that I'll be completely candid about it as will quickly become evident.The nutshell on this book is exactly what the back cover would have you believe. A disaster ensues and the pages take you carefully and ploddingly through every minute detail of what comes thereafter.To the positive, it is obvious that the writer really knows her material. She is an expert in how such a situation would play out and she spends a painstaking amount [...]


    • This book illustrates how life as we know it can be changed in an instant by a single event. Upon reading, I was immediately transported into the lives of characters who found themselves facing extraordinary challenges in order to survive. The descriptive and detailed writing style made me feel that I was one of them, caught up in their struggles and small victories. More importantly, the book brings to light an issue which has often been ignored - the dangers of nuclear power. While seeing the [...]


    • I won Jolt: A Rural Noir from giveaways. Although it is a work of fiction I found it well researched and a kind of study guide as to what to expect after a disaster, nuclear or otherwise or even a terrorist attack. There were things mentioned in it that I had never even given a thought toke how to decontaminate people and safely get rid of their clothes, etc. Provide emergency housing, clothing and food for people who were forced away from their homes. Getting a supply of potassium iodide to pr [...]


    • This book, Jolt: a rural noir, was an interesting and fascinating carpet ride into the future possibility, or likelihood, of a radiation disaster, clearly accurate and well researched. But more than that, I think it is a story about community and bravery, the social and emotional commitment to the structural well-being of the community as a whole and its response to terror. It is about the selflessness, the (often unspoken) communication, the coordination, the sacrifice, the cooperation and effo [...]


    • This book was a timely reminder of the threats we face today. It deals with multiple acts of terrorism, and the people who have to deal with it. Good dialogue and much information about what people in this kind of danger have to deal with. Having open borders makes me all the more nervous, having read this.


    • Jolt: a rural noir is an exciting combination of a compelling fictional love story and riveting science fiction account of a nuclear meltdown. The book looks at some of the individual and community aspects of surviving a nuclear meltdown while simultaneously interweaving the character's stories of personal growth and love.

    • Disclaimer: I won this book on .Overall, I liked this book. The plot and the characters were mostly enjoyable. I appreciated the details of the characters building a new society. The timeline was a little hard to follow with the chapters bouncing between current time and flashbacks. The dates listed at the beginning of the chapters sometimes helped. Unfortunately, many chapters did not have dates. Some even had dates that had to be incorrect based on events in previous chapters. The listed dates [...]


    • This quick read takes you to a disaster you’d never want to experience… waiting out a nuclear fallout, in a place you’d never think would exist – a fully functioning, caring and sharing community. How these people manage the unthinkable lifts the heart and lets us see the better side of man. The information feels accurate, the characters are flawed and lovely and life goes on. Ultimately, a feel good drama to help escape your boring day of not wanting to clean house. An advanced copy of [...]


    • Disclaimer: I won this book on .Note: I read and reviewed this book months ago. I cannot find my review, and I do not remember much of it. I was confused by a few characters who appear halfway through the book, disappeared for a while, then briefly reappeared in the same place where all the other characters lived.
