I found a way I found a way to survive with them Am I a great person I don t know I don t know We re all great people Everyone has something in them that is wonderful I m just different and I love these bears enough to do it right I m edgy enough and I m tough enough But mostly I love these bears enough to survive and do it right from the video diary of Timothy Treadwell self proclaimed Grizzly Man recorded right before he was eaten by a bear On April 1 1969 the Board of Commissioners of Skamania County Washington State adopted an ordinance for the protection of sasuatchbigfoot creatures Ordinance No69 01 Although it sounds like an April Fool s Day joke it was an official ordinance It was published in the local weekly newspaper Skamania County Pioneer on April 4 and April 11 1969 Because people did not take it seriously the newspaper publisher had the article notarized on April 12 1969 and printed both the ordinance and an Affidavit of Publication in a subseuent paper edition Courthouse Libraries BCThere are several things going on in Max Brooks s latest novel Devolution First and most obvious is the notion of Bigfoot The conceit of the novel is that following Mount Rainier going full lava a small community in Washington State is cut off from the world and massacred by a troop of Bigfoots Bigfeet or Sasuatch This is a fun look at the real world possibility of something being out there Well maybe not so fun for the victims If there are yeti type creatures tramping about in the woods how did they get there Where did they come from Why did they come Or did they originate hereMax Brooks looks like he is prepared for a rough day meeting with his agent maybe image from his siteSecond there is a satirical look at a group of supposedly back to nature enthusiasts who have little appreciation of what nature is really all about and that does not just mean the possible presence of a superpredator in the neighborhood The story points out the downside of our reliance on the conveniences of the modern age without considering the need for backup in case something should interrupt or end many of the services we take for granted Something that might ring a bell in this plague year For example in one of his talks for the military Brooks points out how advanced communication technology has made it increasingly possible for soldiers in the field to sustain real time contact with their commanders But what if they are being hacked by a hostile force In that case the advanced tech has become an unwarranted risk and the soldiers need to be able to proceed with their mission on their own They have to be able to go electronically silent They need to have the necessary euipment and training reuired to accomplish the intended goals on their own In the case of Greenloop WA if you lose your communications and have only enough supplies to last for a relatively short time how do you sustain yourself And then there is that third elementImage from NH1 in VermontThe need to recognize and prepare for real threats in the world Well the Greenloop folks might be forgiven for not heading to their exurban happy place a small planned community expecting to be contending with incoming zombies or whatever they clearly had not read Max s earlier work But they find themselves a bit light on death dealing hardware when faced with fearsome furry foes It s great to live free of the other sheep until you hear the wolves howl These guys do not figure in the novel although it would be pretty frightening if a herd of them descended on a small community en masse But their band name Devo comes from the concept of de evolution the idea that instead of continuing to evolve mankind has actually begun to regress as evidenced by the dysfunction and herd mentality of American society Like dressing the sameBrooks has some experience planning for unpleasant possibilities He is the author of among other things World War Z and most relevant here The Zombie Survival Guide One could reasonably expect a bit of overlap between preparing for a zombie apocalypse and Survival Sasuatch He is also a Nonresident Fellow at the Modern War Institute at West Point and Senior Resident Fellow at the Art of Future Warfare Project at the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security of the Atlantic Council His expertise on how to contend with surprising enemies is taken pretty seriously by the United States military and a top tier international relations organization The guy might be worth checking out And I would heartily urge you to watch some of his presentationsImage from Closetfileswordpresscom I know that look bunionsPart of the look at how unprepared we are has to do with a larger uestion of how those who are aware of impending problems for example the CDC for disease related threats or the leadership of our national intelligence apparatus for the current cyber war Russia is waging on us can engage the public Most of the population tends to fall into one of two categories denial my children can t possibly get measles or insert your favorite not uite extinct disease here so there is no need for them to be inoculated or panic don t go anywhere near a person with AIDS or you may become infected Brooks plays those out in this scenario as well while having a bit of fun at the expense of the frou frou and expressing some appreciation for those who can bring real world experience of relatable challenges and those who are able to apply their creativity to finding solutions to unthought of problemsImage from The Daily BeastThe story is presented with a lightly drawn framing device It will feel familiar to readers of World War Z In this one an unnamed narrator presents to us material about the Rainier Sasuatch Massacre from several sources Prime among these is the journal kept by one Kate Holland a resident of Greenloop and first hand witness One must wonder if Kate Holland s name might be a nod to Ranae Holland of the Animal Planet show Finding Bigfoot Her descriptions show how the social dynamics of the tiny community change in adapting to their newly perilous circumstances Who rises who fails It makes for a very entertaining version of a Big No I mean really seriously BIG Brother type scheme There will be heroes and villains We get to see how the threats arrive are seen and how responses evolve as well Image from Closetfileswordpresscom Maybe upset because it is so tough to get a pair of decently fitting shoesOther intel sources include bits of interviews with Ranger Josephine Schell and with Frank McCray brother to one of the Greenloop residents There are occasional one off bits from other sources as well These offer exposition about what was going on in the world around the time of the massacre and historical and scientific insight Each chapter is introduced with a uote These are from very diverse sources like JJ Rousseau Teddy Roosevelt Jane Goodall Frans de Waal Cicero Cato Aesop and These are fun often informative andor thought provoking some grounding the fantastical elements in a base of reality One of the things that I enjoyed most about this book was the trial and error approach the Greenloop residents went through in trying to find ways to contend with their new situation Really makes you wonder what you would do in their place It reminded me very much of the hard science fiction of Arthur C Clark and Neal Stephenson And the musings on the possible roots of Sasuatch were also uite fun Image from Satanfudgecom Overall this is a fun read with page turning tension that will keep you at it while delivering a subliminal or not so subliminal payload of suggesting you check out your own reliance on things not readily replaced should something really really

Free download Ù Devolution ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Max Brooks ´ 6 Free download Free read Devolution Arrowing and too earth shattering in its implications to be forgottenIn these pages Max Brooks brings Kate's extraordinary account to light for the first time faithfully reproducing her words alongside his own extensive investigations into the massacre and the legendary beasts behind itKate's is a tale of unexpected strength and resilience of humanity's defiance in the face of a terrible predator's gaze and inevitably of savagery and deathYet it. 25 to 3 starsAs I loved World War Z I was excited to read another one by Max Brooks Since I had high expectations I suppose I needed a big payoff to consider this a success Unfortunately I didn t get oneWhile the format was a bit like World War Z interviews post tragic event this one focused on one specific event Basically Mt Rainier erupts and Bigfoot attacks I don t feel like I need to mark that sentence as a spoiler as that is in several book summaries I read so it should not be a surprise The premise sounded cool with lots of potential It was potential that was in my opinion never realizedFirst and foremost the pace and story was completely clouded by the exposition I would probably put this in my top ten books for number of times I found myself saying GET ON WITH IT And when it finally felt like things were moving along there would be some random exposition to slow things up againNext the characters and their actionsrelationships were so cheesy and unbelievable At first I would think that I wasn t following a conversation but I was It was just that the conversation was so silly and the way the characters were acting towards each other so bizarre my mind couldn t comprehend itI mentioned the Rainier eruption earlier As a fan of a good volcano disaster story I was disappointed in how much the eruption was just an afterthought and minor footnote It was like Oh Rainier erupted and now we are trapped What do we do next except the sentence I just wrote has intensity than what was in the book I know the focus of this book was the Sasuatch Massacre but he could have had some intense and interesting details about the Rainier part and it would have greatly heightened the urgency of the storyMost of my review has been things I didn t care for But it did have some interesting high points and I am not sad I read it I just wished there had been a lot high points
