Renee Harvell is bewildered by the South. People are named Peck Titsworth, for Christ's sake, and every curve in the road hides a dead dog or a "Prepare to meet God" or a "Trust The One Who Bled For You" sign. Emergency Instructions opens with the young Harvell family's arrival in Arkansas during the "summer of death," and follows their struggle to survive in a place where "practitioners of backwoods witchcraft are as common as Methodists and sometimes one in the same."Joey's been hired as Assistant Professor of History with a specialty in southern conflicts involving Mormons, and Renee teaches special ed at R'Ville Middle. When her life intertwines with Rhonda Love, whose daughter was savagely murdered the summer before, a moment of reckoning flies toward them and their men. Like the far off thrum that ever thumps from the backside of their property, the Harvell's year in the Natural State takes on a heartbeat all its own. What happens is as unpredictable as the mystery lights that hover above the Ozarks that winter, when country women hang snakes from tree limbs to tease out rain that finally comes gushing. Book one of the Go Love Quartet, Emergency Instructions, plumbs blood ties and roots, our inescapable connectedness to place and kin.… (mere)

Disclaimer: I was provided this book for free in return for my honest review.

I started this book and made it through the first chapter. Barely. I just can’t say I would recommend this book to anyone. It felt spastic and choppy, unorganized. Usually when I’m reading a story, it paints a picture in my head and I can see it unfold, but this writing style didn’t allow that to happen.

I may come back to this book after a while and try again, but for now, this is my review. ( )

A fish out of water story, I enjoyed this tale of a small family moving back home. The setting was a character in and of itself and while it didn't make me want to visit, it was fascinating. I had a bit of trouble with the timeline, it jumped around a bit, but overall a really enjoyable read. ( )

The pace of the book is fast, very fast. I had trouble getting used to it, but I did like it.
I read a lot of English books, but I am not used to the kind of English in Emergency Instructions.
I am not quite sure why I did not understand everything: was it my lack of English at some points or was perhaps the style of the book very complicated?
Notwithstanding this all, I did like the book, the melancholy, the sadness, the deep, deep hurt and sadness, the sudden vital information in a subordinate clause, things you can only suspect and do not kow for sure.

But now I am going to read a very simple book, just to take a rest of this one. ( )

I wasn't able to finish the book. I started it several times but put it down each time. It just didn't catch my interest at all.

Emergency Instructions, by Michael Gills, really has nothing to do with emergency instructions, or other than in passing, a nuclear power plant. Having finished the novel, I’m still not sure what it was about other than that someone’s daughter was murdered, a man had a finger bitten off by another man, oh, and two women go skinny dipping. I know there’s a plot buried in the pages somewhere, but the continual distraction of either flashbacks or insane detail to what is going on, left me wondering what was going to happen, but nothing ever did.

Perhaps I am not enough of a purist to appreciate the literature here, but Emergency Instructions kind of left me with an imagine of someone writing a university essay with a word quota, who simply filled in a bit of anything to achieve it.

I can say that the character development is great, simply because the details in the story leave you with nothing left to the imagination.
Emergency Instructions is not for the casual reader. As I mentioned, I’m sure there is someone out there who might thoroughly enjoy this novel. It just wasn’t me.
