      It's been so long since I've done a Reader Radar segment. Part of it was my fault for not digging deeper for the short stories and novellas, so I did what any great procrastinator does and wait for stuff to drop in my lap. Then, there in my inbox, was an opportunity that I am so glad that I did not pass up, along with proving to myself that good things do come to those who wait.For More Reviews: ravenous-reader-book-reviewsUnderground Nest may be a mere 82 pages long, but it has more jam packed [...]

      I read this story first as a web serial when it was posted, and was really pleased to get hold of the book when it became available. Underground Nest, as the title might suggest, is not a story about happy families and white picket fences. It is about a man driven to accumulate an ideal wife, the ideal family, the ideal career, and the ideal lifestyle. Zach Severins knows how everything should look. He has the veneer so perfectly constructed that he has convinced even himself that it is all real [...]

      Kathleen Maher's novel centers around the dissolution of the proto-typical American family. Mom, dad, son, daughter. Dad is the breadwinner, a former Eagle Scout and Boy Scout supporter who teaches Political Science. The kids go through the normal growing pains, although the son does follow dad up the Boy Scout ladder. Mom stays home and lives a housewife existence rarely seen today. The daughter rebels -- at times.Not surprisingly, the "underground nest" of the title tells us that just beneath [...]

      If one were to judge all Boy Scouts with the behaviour, personality and approach of Zach the organization would have been defunct within a handful of years. Zach is a character that you will find difficult to sympathise with, more than once I caught myself rolling my eyes at his calculated, practiced behaviour and his inability to take responsibility for his bad acts. The mind of a nine year old trapped in the body of an outwardly successful, upwardly mobile professor of political science, with [...]

      I enjoyed this novella. At first, I didn’t like the main characters—Zach Severins is a rather arrogant ex-Boy Scout: precise, rather intolerant, a bit narrow-minded, overweight…and a wife-cheater. His wife, Beth, is rather bland; his lover, Vida, is a little pompous, dominating, and selfish. His children…well his children are over-indulged and consequently a tad precocious.However, this rather ‘mechanical’ family unit is blown apart when Beth finds out about Zach’s affair. His chil [...]

      My ThoughtsDon't let the page count fool you, this book packs a punch in only 82 pages. A lot happens in a few short pages. You have this guy who you learn is very meticulous with his life. Everything has to be just so so and if its not then well he is spastic. Basically he wants his cake (nice wife, perfect kids, perfect career) and eat it too (mistress and grander lifestyle) As we all know that just doesn't work. He plays this lifestyle for years before it all starts to crumble. The book is on [...]

      Left unsatisfiedWhile I understand this being told by the man himself about his life, I was left unsatisfied with the ending. But I guess that's life we don't know how our life ends.
