    This was my first encounter with Martha Moody s work, and I certainly see myself going back for A dystopian novel set in the near future, Sharp and Dangerous Virtues circles around the problem of dealing with the crises of tomorrow the effects of climate change and global food insecurity, for example with only the tools of today What makes this novel a good read, though, is the author s care in not allowing these major plot drivers to crowd out the human relationships, with all their human frai [...]

    The most fun thing about this book for me was that it takes place in Daytond it is filled with Dayton locations and Dayton history One of the main characters is even a UD professor The story itself was not good enough that I would recommend it to someone who didn t know Dayton.

    Ugh, could not finish Ohio snore.

    I read about a third of the book and just couldn t get into it I would think if you weren t from the Dayton area, it would be incredibly difficult to care at all.

    This book was jarring Its dystopian future seems distressingly plausible, and the characters are incredibly believable in their attempts to make a normal life for themselves during war.

    I couldn t even finish it The book was dry and droned on and on.
