    2. Jobless Recovery – Second Addition – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, RepeatDear David R. Griffin:By now you are aware of the unprecedented opportunity Markham-Hook Conglomerate has encountered. I am sure you rejoice at our good fortune and wish us every success in our leap forward into the global future.Unfortunately, David R.

    3. Even if you haven't lost your job or have a close friend or family member who has, you'll probably still experience the anguish that main characters Dave and Joe go through in this "ripped from the headlines" novel of American ingenuity. It didn't take me long to root for these two down-and-outers--both so different, and yet both so alike. Dave is the corporate cover boy--great job, super car, and beautiful girl friend. He assumes his priviledged life will continue without interruption. Joe know [...]


    4. Jobless Recovery was an interesting read. Evans’ deft hand weaves the lives of her characters together, and twists the plot in ways that renders it entirely unpredictable. Which leaves me in a conundrum. Evans’ plotlines do not spiral up toward a cinematic peak of heroism or cowardice where plans come together with a bang or fall apart with a thud. Rather, they happen much in the way of real life — the thread gets lost, people do other things, stuff is unplanned in a messy, natural sort of [...]


    5. In Jobless Recovery, L.C. Evans creates a living picture of the recession. As the headline suggests, this novel has "ripped from the headlines" feel, yet it is infused with humor and personal touches.Dave Griffin is a young computer programmer who drives an SUV and dates a pretty girl. Until Markham-Hook Conglomerate announces a restructuring that gives Dave's job to a foreign programmer at a fraction of his salary and the world as he knows it falls apart.Across town, Joe Tremain is in worse sha [...]

    7. I received a copy of this book from a giveaway.This book is about three people who are down on their luck due to circumstances outside of their control. It supports the old saying that life isn’t fair. Dave, who has grown up believing in the “American Dream”, has his world turned upside down when he gets laid off from his job as a computer programmer when his company decides to outsource his job. He can’t believe that his own government is sitting by and knowingly allowing this to happe [...]


    8. "Jobless Recovery" reminded me of M.P. McDonald’s book "No Good Deed" (the first of her Mark Taylor series). This comparison isn’t because these books are the same or the authors writing style are similar (neither is true), but that both stories are thrillers with a strong political message buried in the story. Each puts the reader in a position that they hope to never experience and by doing so forces them to consider the issues from a different point of view. Beyond that, any comparison fa [...]
