Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

AMERICAN RUST by Philipp Meyers

American Rust - Philipp Meyer
  Gritty look at the people left behind when the steel mills closed in Western Pennsylvania. I liked how the story is broken up into the main characters with each telling their story or their version. Each is flawed but each has a streak of honor in them I particularly looked forward to Harris' and Grace's voices. Grace was the most vulnerable while Harris hoped Grace wasn't just using him but he knew she was. Grace was also stronger than she gave herself credit for. Harris knew that. I would like to have heard Ho's voice on some of the events. Isaac had his problems. Lee, Poe, and Henry were too wrapped up in themselves to notice or care much about others. Tough read but worth it
