Forever Texas read like a history book, which isn't bad if you like the way 6th grade history books read. Some of the family histories were interesting enough, but it was definately not one of Mike Blakely's best efforts.
One of the best humor/man-made calamity books I've read in a long time. Great read!
Interesting to feel you know how pre-Civil War citizens felt & behaved.... not much different that people today.
Perhaps it should have been titled 2084. We're headed that way with such twisted news these days. I truly believe that if the Nazis would have won the war 1984 would have been a reality.
The Hex concept was intriguing but I found it a let down... the ending was wrapped up too quickly & neatly.
If were made into a movie they would be hard put to not edit out some scenes or have a R or even X rating. I didn't appreciate the explicit gore much but did like the history being brought to life. Very life-like, including the sex, if that is what you are looking for in your library (I'm not) ; its all part of life.
