This book was a so-so read--not bad, but then again, not great. The protagonist, Greg, was an unsavory character that did not espouse much empathy from me. In fact, the so-called bad guy, Donny, was aroused more sympathy. Also, since I'm not into environmentalism as a religion, I found myself disconnected numerous times.
Enjoyable read if you can get past the authors obvious disdain for anyone who doesn't share his progressive world view. If you enjoy gratuitous name calling (teabaggers? really?) and the caricature of anyone who believes anything contrary to the prevailing liberal philosophy in urban Oregon as lacking any true intellectual capacity and being bitter bible thumpers and gun clingers, this novel might be for you. The story could have been just as well told without the cheapshots, which I found lazy and condescending. I will think twice before buying another book by this author.
