Free Falling by Susan Kiernan-Lewis

A fun family vacation turns into an apocalyptic nightmare in Free Falling when a couple and their young son find themselves trapped in the Irish countryside during an international crisis. With all contact outside the country gone, all electricity and all non horse-powered vehicles useless and desperate bands of outlaws roaming the Emerald Isle, the time has come for one soft American family to reach deep within for the reserve of brains and courage to survive.

Really enjoyed this story. Look forward to reading more by this author. Especially enjoyed the fact that there were not explicit sex scenes in the love story, which clutter up way too much literature these days. I wish more authors could write about love and not sex the way this author does.

I just kept coming back for more. Priorities are set straight and fierce love of family nurtures newfound strength and courage as an American family struggles to survive in rural Ireland with bare essentials. Horses, other animals, good guys and bad, serious suspense with just the right touch of humor. What an adventure! Loved it!

This book made me feel like I was watching a movie. Some parts had the most amazing, perfect descriptions of a situation that I almost felt like I could hear the sounds, and see everything as if it was in front of me. I can be picky with stories, but as long as they keep me engaged and I look forward to reading it everyday, then I am happy. This book did that for me! I absolutely recommend giving this story a chance!

Pretty good story but with a lot of stupid or confusing parts. Thank goodness for this Nook that makes it easy to keep up with all of the people. Unbelievable in places. It's about a tough American woman who could do it all - as long as she had tranquilizers. She overcame all of her fears, though, when things realiy got hard and she had to save everyone. The author might have come up with a better reason for her husband to be held captive. I did not like the constant profanity. A good writer doesn't need it. Well, a poor one doesn't, either. Everybody threw up a lot. That and their urinating really didn't add to the story! The 10-year-old son was treated like he was 5. The author included today's checklist items: fingers through the hair, raised and wiggling eyebrows, ref. to movie or TV shows, designer labels, etc. Punctuation is not bad except that the author doesn't know how to use commas. Grammar is about average with today's writers. "Me and..." drives me up the wall! At least, people didn't grab things. Missing words like "that" make sentences confusing. The author doesn't know when to use was/were, on/upon, you/your, was/were, in/into... or that "they" and "them" are plural. A few really funny places (even though they weren't meant to be) such as when the woman stuffed a chicken while she was in a pillowcase that changed into a burlap bag. She, also, walked 8 miles one day with blisters on her feet and wanted to do it again the next day. She needed the exercise. A rolling pin turned into a bat and back again. She was from Atlanta but drank milk and sugar in her hot tea. (: She had worn-out a cookbook at home but really didn't know how to cook. Found one left in the rental house just like it! Wow! Wow, also, that an Irish man didn't know English. Her husband was tied up and lay flat on his back in bed with very little food and almost no water with a broken arm for over a month but was able to run and climb through a high window and act like a commando a couple of days after being rescued. Wow! The US was blamed for the nuclear explosion that caused all of their problems, of course, but the author didnt really make us out to be terrible, dishonest ruffians as she did in Parlez-vous Murder. I don't know how to rate this book. The author has written a lot of books. She is not a young beginner and should know punctuation and grammar. -2** for that. -1* for stupid, contradictory or confusing parts. -2** for vulgarity and profanity. +4**** for pretty good writing. The book was a little long but rather interesting. Am I being too generous? Am I wrong to expect writers to be experts in their craft? Am I wrong to believe that a writer should help her readers improve their own English rather than to confirm their own illiteracy?

The perfect scenario trapped in a foreign country . I felt the constant references to God was a bit much and the everyone good survives in the end a little to easy way out for ending the book.

Thinking about the places we vacation, and WHAT IF....this story makes once truly contemplate the reality of terror attacks. How would one survive? Are we equipped to do whatever it takes to survive a crisis? How would it change us? I think we need a better plan.

Chapter after chapter packed with life, from the meaning of it, to how it can change in a second...from what's important to what's not. A tribute to the resiliance of the human spirit.

This story was definitely unique, and the author achieves a depth of character development that is very impressive. As with many books in this type of setting there are opportunities for the reader to wonder why the characters do what they do. If you enjoy that quest, and let a few plot holes go you can fall into the story easily.
