    I thought it was chilling the way the author wrote about these do gooder types the real estate agent and wildlife journalist and how they are so careful to exercise regularly swimming running hiking etc live a healthy lifestyle there is a line something like while not true vegetarians they watch their intake of animal fats and be aware of society's ills like the way Kyra speaks out against animal abuse how Delaney speaks out against feeding coyotes and how they both express shock that people could be so unaware they specifically purchase a free range turkey for Thanksgiving but at the same time the author underscores how wasteful they are with their brand new cars car centric lifestyle expensive house built in wildfire country desires for an even larger house complete disregard for the suffering of the illegals it's like the couple in the book give themselves a lot of brownie points for all these details while missing the big picture That is something of particular concern I think for socially conscious and environmentally minded folks For example a person can get way up on their soapbox about bringing reusable bags to the store while trashing the environment by driving to the store in a gas hog and after getting there filling the bags with all kinds of inessential crap most likely made in China literally as we put the stuff in our shopping bag we can be overheard criticizing the Chinese for being big polluters but the factories doing the polluting are the ones making all the stuff we buy so who is really to blame? It's an awful thing for privileged people to look down our noses at people who have less than us Especially when a lot of the social inequity in the world is caused by the wasteful practices of the modernized countries The book illustrates the COUNTER ARGUMENT to the belief held by many privileged people that wealth and privilege stem from being STRONGER PEOPLE somehow smarter harder working motivated etc than the people who are poor And therefore many privileged people feel justified in trampling on the rights and needs of poor people Because it illustrates this point so well I think this book is excellent Note I count myself as a privileged person for sure As such I know how easy it is to forget that I personally haven't earned that If I had been born in a different situation I'd have a totally different life This book is very good at reminding us of this Also I really liked the ending No matter how F'ed up the world is no matter how much suffering and betrayal we have endured as individuals it is still possible to find within us a heart of goodness to help others in need That was pretty much what I got out of the final line of the book I found it very uplifting Another thing I found interesting in reading the reviews many people saw the white couple Kyra Delaney as the villains while seeing America Candido as the underdog heroes This was surprising to me I actually thought that both couples were equally sympathetic or unsympathetic I felt that both couples were stereotypes made believable by the human touches that the author added America mustering the courage to go into town when Candido was hurt Kyra's thoughtfulness in getting Delaney the step ladder Delaney putting aside the fight over the wall and kissing Kyra passionately in the grocery store Candido killing household pets in his desperation to keep his family alive Delaney destroying the photos showing who the real graffiti artist was so one of the redeeming qualities I think was the feeling that the author was not taking sides or villainizing one group or the other
