    An excerpt from my 2008 interview with author Andrew Wice I enjoy reading and writing with multiple narrators Faulkner s As I Lay Dying was the first novel I read in which a storyline is told from many points of view, some of which contradict each other A novel can be considered an orange, and each self contained narrative is like a distinct segment When each segment is separated, there s so much surface area A...

    I ran into this book when my man and I were strolling around Madrid, NM I didn t buy it, my pockets being generally empty, but I was glad to find it a day later available as a Kindle book and zapped it down to my iPad, incidentally my first non reference electronic book.I have to admit, this book pushed a lot of my buttons as a pugnaciously proud New Mexican It was visceral and personal to me, like watching a friend s punk band play and going crazy in the moment of it Maybe it s not perfect, but in some vicarious way, it feels like you re a part of it That was exactly how I felt reading this book I took it really personally I ve been almost everywhere that this book takes place around New Mexico I know these places, I know the cliffs, I know the roads, I know the desert stretches I even found myself becoming aggressive and angry through certain passages, descriptions of injustices to both people and places, to my dear New Mexico and it s characters And again, admittedly, it activated and agitated my own prejudices,...

    U.N Secretary General Ban Ki moon declared in a recent United Nations address Too often, where we need water we find guns instead Population growth will make the problem worse So will climate change As the global economy grows, so will its thirst Many conflicts lie just over the horizon Anticipating what might happen when this declaration comes true, To The Last Drop foreshadows what might happen when water reserves and resources decline in the immediate future As written in this thrilling novel, when this critical resource dries up, governments may need to exploit every option at their disposal to secure water even resorting to warfare In such turmoil, individuals will have to defend their water rights by any means necessary in order to secure their livelihood, including armed insurgency Such an imminent crisis exists between Texas and New Mexico, which have fought bitterly over water rights since the early nineteenth centu...

    I will not claim any sense of neutrality for this book It is the first published novel of my friend Andrew Wice and it is great His talent for description is on display through out the novel set in scenic, but dry, New Mexico, where he resides A war of water and some easy to hate antagonists and ha...

    Terrific This is a real gem It is a sort of allegory of the present told as if it s the future The characters are hysterical It s funny, randy and suspenseful You will read the last 80 pages in one sitting on the edge of your seat.

    This book suffers from poor writing, terrible characters, and an unfortunately ill conceived and impossible plot.The writing is full of cliches and short on variety sentence structure is poor and feels like it lacked any kind of editing.The characters have all the depth of a cardboard cutout and the likability of an irate skunk The cast was certainly colorful, but varied from completely psychotic to sadistic and racist to arrogant and ugly Realism was almost completely thrown out the window.The plot was set in modern day America, but was beyond impossi...

    If you have never spent any serious time in New Mexico I would not recommend reading this book Even if you have, I m not sure I would recommend it I read it because it was written by a local guy and I felt obligated Parts of it are pretty good, especially in the first half of the novel, and Wice does a good job with the vernacular of some of his characters Actually, he does a very decent caricature of several stereotypical New Mexican and Texan archetypes The premise of the story is intriguing as well However, the story unfolds in a way that is so implausible that one must suspend all disbelief to read it, yet there is no framework built up to suspend that disbelief within It is both rooted in our present society and in total d...
