    Fractures PDF º Hardcover fractures mobile, Fractures Kindle What the frack I’m always pleased to welcome novels with an environmental conscience and this one will be memorable for me if only because it was my first book read on my new Nook In essence it takes the concerns of Jonathan Franzen’s last two novels The Corrections and Freedom and puts them together – giving the story of a dysfunctional family facing environmental and ethical crisesArchitect Frank Joyner has been holding out against the fracking companies encroaching on his town but when his son warns him that he may face “compulsory integration” before too long he starts cu

    Fractures PDF º Hardcover fractures mobile, Fractures KindleLamar Herrin’s new novel “Fractures” revolves around a techniue for extracting natural gas from rock which sounds about as interesting as extracting natural gas from rock but it’s surprisingly moving Here’s an environmental novel that does just what you want it to do Frame an important contemporary debate in profoundly human termsHydraulic fracturing — commonly known as “fracking” — involves drilling deep into the earth and then injecting liuid and sand under tremendous pressure to create small fissures that allow gas and oil to flow up the well Something like that pressure is now being brought to bear on our politicians Energy companies claim that fracking is an economical way to answer our thirst for cheap fuel; environmentalists argue that it’ll poison us for generationsA novel is no place to adjudicate that scientific debate but Herrin gives us family members forced to make the choice for themselves and the

    Fractures PDF º Hardcover fractures mobile, Fractures KindleThis book is simply awesome Such a depth of insight about this fractured but still connected family and reality of fracking as it is experienced by the people and land impacted It seems a very fair treatment showing the very tough decisions and the people who do the work and whyMultiple points of view frame the events You may not like all the characters but you will see why they think the way they do and how they act to hold their worlds togetherI'm still thinking about it

    Fractures PDF º Hardcover fractures mobile, Fractures KindleSometimes I found Herrin's prose a little difficult to follow But I thought his exploration of the dynamics of fracking interesting engaging and thought provoking It's a clear reminder that nothing is ever simple Frank Joyner who doesn't want to allow gas drilling on his family property is beset from all sides those who think he should maximize the profit for his family and support energy self sufficiency for his country making him a patriot and those who think it is an abuse of the land and are concerned with the effects caused by it The title Fractures doesn't just refer to hydrofracking but also the fractures within families The fractures in the Joyner family are played out against the backdrop of the fracking debate Definitely worth a read

    Fractures PDF º Hardcover fractures mobile, Fractures KindleFractures by Lamar Herrin which I won from Goodreads Giveaways centres around the Joyner family whose land sits atop the Marcellus Shale; like gold to avaricious gas drillers who compete for drilling rights in the area The story is not political in nature although it does expose some issues about the hydrofracking controversy rather it revolves around Frank Joyner's decision whether or not to lease the land and the motivations of

    Fractures PDF º Hardcover fractures mobile, Fractures KindleNot every novel you read is great Some novels are good and some are okay This novel was a great read Characters so well drawn that their actions and storyline are believable Not once did I shake my head and think 'that made no sense' which unfortunately does happen sometimes but not this timeThe leasing of family property to a large natural gas company for hydrofracking the process they use to drill for natural gas is a part of this story but it's really the story of a family The decision is up to the head of the family Frank Joyner who has been left the land by his parents with a proviso from his mother to share the

    Fractures PDF º Hardcover fractures mobile, Fractures KindleI felt I should rate this read higher but I was so disappointed not to love it that it really was just okay Diane Ackerman and Julie Orringer gave positive reviews so I thought to give it a chance and slogged through to the end mostly to see how he worked it all out I would say they book blurbed simply because he wrote about fracking or knew him not because they loved this book They don't write like this with the remove from their characters or at least not in their books i have read and loved This felt very superficial even though he was dealing with serious subjects; like I was watching his characters from behind a screen rather than live His writing and descriptive patches were sometimes beautiful but I cared little about most of his characters I never developed any strong pull toward any of them although I wanted to It
