    2. I bought Totem as part of a pay it forward read and review project For the most part, I REALLY enjoyed this book, as in really really It is hard to classify as far as genre, but mostly I guess it s sci fi fantasy, with generous dashes of horror and suspense It centers around the people of a small NE town on a February day in 1978 the day a blizzard strikes, some odd strangers arrive, and rather terrifying and unfortunate things start happening.As mentioned by other reviewers, there is a large ca [...]

Totem is a well written and interesting read Lorion s use of language and ability to create vivid imagery is particularly impressive There were many times that I read a sentence and thought how clever it was The narrative is complicated and the constant changes of point of view had me confused a little at first It wasn t until about half way through that I finally managed to keep the different characters and their relationships straight in my head I did like the way that this author was able to [...]

    12. This fictional story takes you across centuries and drops you in the 1970s, which means if you are a Baby Boomer, this takes you back to your childhood or maybe your teenage years.The descriptions of the this normal New England community from the 70 s are so precise that it will make you wonder if the author had visited your bedroom as a teenager, complete with LP s from the popular groups of the decade, the huge stereo speakers that either you had or knew a friend who did, and popular posters o [...]
