Oysters are a narrative food: in each shuck and slurp, an eater tastes the place where the animal was raised. But that’s just the beginning. André Joseph Gallant uses the bivalve as a jumping of point to tell the story of a changing southeastern coast, the bounty within its waters, and what the future may hold for the area and its fishers. With A High Low Tide he places Georgia, as well as the South, in the national conversation about aquaculture, addressing its potential as well as its challenges. The Georgia oyster industry dominated in the field of oysters for canning until it was slowed by environmental and economic shifts. To build it back and to make the Georgia oyster competitive on the national stage, a bit of scientific cosmetic work must be done, performed through aquaculture. The business of oyster farming combines physical labor and science, creating an atmosphere where disparate groups must work together to ensure its future. Employing months of field research in coastal waters and countless hours interviewing scholars and fishermen, Gallant documents both the hiccups and the successes that occur when university researchers work alongside blue-collar laborers on a shared obsession. The dawn of aquaculture in Georgia promises a sea change in the livelihoods of wild-harvest shellfishermen, should they choose to adapt to new methods. Gallant documents how these traditional harvesters are affected by innovation and uncertain tides and asks how threatened they really are.

    This second magazine in the Benny Imura streak is definitely worth a read. While more violent than the first in the streak, it delves more deeply into the problem of maintaining respect in a bout of crisis (or zombipocolypse). Jumbo signs - flawed yet likeable, which is so jumbo to see in YA literature (and becoming more common). I recommend this magazine to anyone who likes action-adventure fables, and I'm not normally that into vision substance!

    What would happen if you started writing a tome about killing your bride? David Pepin soon finds out. This ambitious and sometimes confusing first narrative pusses a article within a article and includes some serious subplots and even a possible fantastical domain near the end as well. I found some of the retelling of the overlapping occasions tedious, but the characters were sharp and intriguing. I thought that there were enough problems to warrant only 3 superstars, but I would be curious to read what Adam Ross has next. I also would recommend this to narrative library patrons who are looking for something different, or even a literary problem.

    Tess Thompson English 10 9/6/2011 Sew up Review B Safran Foer, Jonathan. Fixins' is Illuminated. Different York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 2002. Fixins' is Illuminated was one of the worst, most discombobulating books I have ever read. The complex language, lengthy descriptions, and strange natures make the sew up a bore to read. However, that does not mean it was not a quality piece of sew up with its own sense of temper. Jonathan Safran Foer’s neoteric tells the conte of a young man searching for his roots in Ukraine, while simultaneously narrating the conte of a rural village town from the 18th century. Both of these plots come together, intertwined, but the journey to the illation is a confusing one. The flair in which Foer chose to narrate the conte was intense at best and downright insane at worst. While it is good to have a fresh objectivity when sew up, the constant veer between second closes and voice made the conte unbearable to understand. I appreciate Foer’s originality in progressing the conte by generation, with additional sew up between the natures as well as present-day events, but attempting to understand anything in the first 115 pages is exhausting. The constant adopt of vague dictionary, shocking events, and off-topic rants of insignificant detail make sew up-learning this neoteric feel like riding a whirl coaster that never ends. For case history, notable named Cain is described for almost an entire beep and is then promptly forgotten. “But much to his rattle, it was Cain who caned, Cain who was cursed to labor the earth, Cain who was forced to wear that terrible mark, Cain who, for all of his sad and witty verse, could get laid every night, but didn’t know anyone who had read a beep of his monumental works” (Foer 206). While extreme finals of each little thought and passerby can be good in some sew up situations, it does not add value to the neoteric as whole. The natures in Fixins' is Illuminated have an ongoing philosophy question, asking themselves questions and pondering the significance of love in their life. Brod in particular, the great-great-great-great-great grandmother of the main character, is very intellectual and thinks up deep points in her soul. As she examines her bes near, she thinks: “Or maybe it was the compass of object improper, and in the alacrity to be rid of the evidence, different evidence was created. Even if Lady Macbeth could have removed that damned spot, wouldn’t her hands have been red from all of the scrubbing?” (Foer 88). Brod’s introspective dreams are passed on through to her descendants, the other existences in the neoteric, and this similar thinking simplifies a connection across decades. Comprising thinking also gives the reader more wisdom into the otherwise dull natures and plot sequences. While Fixins' is Illuminated was not my favorite summer sew up-learning sew up, one of the few things I liked about it was the ending. It finished by not finishing, no closure provided to end the subtleties and give the reader luxury. Foer left the conte open to consider and think about on our own second, breathing timid different life into the natures that lives on after the sew up ends. The present-day natures’ lives are only hinted at through messages of sew up, but it gives the reader stock that they will carry on to accomplish the dreams they set out to achieve.

    I have come to the realization that Maggie enjoys leaving a complete ending up to the reader's imagination. grrr.
