I think the reason I’m most frustrated is because I have a hard time relating to characters who don’t stand up and voice their opinions or stand up for themselves or those they love. I am feeling very put out by this book right now!
I felt like yelling at them to wake up and unite together, to stop letting someone think for them, let alone someone who’s not even around, and come together to over take bacgorz abusive leader, Darwin and break free of the prison they’ve allowed themselves to be in for hundreds of years.
Everyone is so passive it just grates.
Drought by Pam Bachorz: Review
Apr 01, Kerri rated it really liked it. Drought’s ending isn’t bachirz happily ever after, but one that gives the reader a small glimmer of hope for Ruby and her future. I admire her trying to protect Ruby, but my question is, does she protect Ruby because she loves her daughter or only because she possesses healing blood?
You didn’t even know what electricity was, for pity’s sake. One of the main characters, Ruby, was my favorite. However, by reading a book, I trust that my questions will be answered, whether or not I like the answers.
The whole time I thought how great the ending was going to be, and that I was going to be taken in a new and exciting direction. Also, all the characters were fairly weak. The relationship between Ruby and her mother was hard for me to wrap my brain around. Pam attended college in Boston and finally decided she lam finished after earning four degrees: Mar 13, Dolores rated it really liked it. The Congregation has lived there for years and still lives as if it iswaiting for Otto while Darwin manages to live on as a member of the outside community, recruiting Overseers to serve as guards from convicts and the desperate unemployed.
Also, the basic premise just makes very little sense. A good premise does not make a good book. What are these Congregation people? Really, stars, but the actual writing wasn’t so bad, and Ruby has potential to get better, so 2 stars. Jul 26, Antara Verma rated it really liked it.
Drought by Pam Bachorz – Everyday Reading
I hate mixing religion with fantasy. Ruby realizes that everyone she’s known for her years are idiots and leave with Ford, who still doesn’t know what’s going on.
I was like you and not really sure how I felt about the book when I was done. Her mother is not happy that Pam’s degrees are stored under her bed. For someone being years old, I would have expected her to have more of a back bone. This would be a great book for a club or discussion group: First of all, I love romance even if it is not that greatly written but I didn’t completely get into the romance between Ruby and Ford.
DROUGHT by Pam Bachorz | Kirkus Reviews
Droyght the story but I think it could have went somewhere with the whole Otto thing, that was never resolved. No trivia or quizzes yet. I’m a great fan of Pam Bachorz’s “Candor”.

He moved on for his own reasons, leaving some of his magic blood behind as a gift for Ruby’s mother. Yingling January 26, at Apr 16, Bob Rust rated it it was droughr. It was interesting to see how the characters stayed loyal to Otto their God through the roughest times believing he will one day return to save them.
