Rudy’s father was most likely Christ, but the time frame didn’t fit, and I got sick of hearing Otto every five minutes and watching these people scrape leaves through the majority of the text in hopes of a savior that will never come. I found it incredibly easy to suspend my disbelief for the mystical water bit. In fact, it falls flat thanks to 1. I especially loved the descriptions of Ruby being with Ford and ppam the great things in the world. Dec 01, Amanda Kimball rated it it was ok. Ruby realizes that everyone she’s known for her years are idiots and leave with Ford, who still doesn’t know what’s going on.

Apparently he’s a nice boy, aside from the fact that he’s part of a group that regularly beats the Congregation.


Mar 14, Mindy Alt rated it it was ok Shelves: Drought has been on the edges of my reading radar for a while. And as cliche as the situation is, Bachorz still seems to keep the romance fresh and intriguing.

As if it was something like Romeo and Juliet, I would’ve most likely flung the ppam to the ground and thrown a tantrum.


I felt like yelling at them to wake up and unite together, to stop letting someone think for them, let alone someone who’s not even around, and come together to over take their abusive leader, Darwin and break free of the prison they’ve allowed themselves to be in for hundreds of years.

It took me awhile to get into the book, but then I enjoyed it. All in all I enjoyed this one, and I liked the ending a lot more than A very compelling read, but I confess it made me a little uncomfortable at times. Again, it started out ok but there were a few times that I lost connection with them.

We learn very little about the history of the Congregation and precious little about Otto.

Drought by Pam Bachorz

Probably one bahcorz the worst books I have ever read. Dec 27, Brooke rated it liked it. Trust me, it sounds a LOT more interesting than it ends up being. Sula’s community are harvesters of water, spending their days scraping drops with a spoon from living leaves into pewter cups.

Now the questions that bachoz unanswered. Although this book doesn’t have a completed plot; in my opinion, it’s a great book that keeps you tied in and you will want to keep reading. Ruby is a teenager, but one who has been growing up for a long time. Mixed with water, drops of her blood can heal any wound and save lives. The best part of this book is the strong romance between Ford and Ruby. May 16, Drougyt rated it liked it.

Another quick read – YA candy book. Don’t read ahead if you don’t want any spoilers, and I seem to have more to say about a book that I didn’t like as much t This one was dorught hard one to rate for me.


There was a problem adding your email address. I really enjoyed Candor when I read it and had to check out Pam’s latest novel, especially with the dystopian element. She even goes jogging.

Maybe it’ll help somebody else. By now she has a following of people receiving weekly communion. Ruby, Otto’s daughter, is placed in the impossible position of having to chose between love and freedom or loyalty to those that depend on her.

Having a very strong opinion about religion and faith, I found it a bit difficult to have too much compassion for the followers, which I think is why the ending was good for me.

Over all I thought “Drought” was a good quality read. I’m not sure I would call it dystopian exactly either. What’s so weird about this? They are bacuorz for reasons which are explained in the book.

I probably won’t recommend this book or choose other options from this author. Who the heck is Otto really, what is his story, where did he go, etc?

Nov 02, Magdalena Maggie Nightingale rated it really liked it. I feel that Bachorz completely dropped the ball on this. Yes, it has bad reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, but it does not live up to the promise the plot gives. If I view her as a true 16 year old then I understand that she is dominated by her mother and ddought indoctrinated in the worshiping Otto view with the endure only plan.
