Just finished reading this gorgeous novel! Wow. The ending took my breath away. The whole novel is so atmospheric and the characters feel layered and true from the first chapters on. I loved it! I've already bought a few more copies to give to mates and donate to my local library.
I was blown away by this book, pun completely and utterly intended. If you’re the kind of person who enjoys that feeling of not wanting to eat, sleep, see your mates or be at work because all you wish to do is read and search out what happens next, well, here you go. As a fellow writer, I’m humbled and inspired by Natalie’s hero development, plot formation and pace, the method she sprinkles and teases the story and how brilliantly she makes you SEE the drive-in, the corn fields, the old-fashioned vehicles and the cemetery. So very, very good, from the first page to the last.
We Speak in Storms started off a small slow, but at some point, I was hooked and didn't wish to place it down. It follows three teenagers (one who is bullied because he's gay, one whose mom is dying of cancer, and one who struggles being one of the few persons of color in the community) in a little Midwest city as ghosts/spirits from victims of a tornado in 1961 visit them. It is a coming of age story that I'd think anyone who is in or went to high school would appreciate. I enjoyed getting to know all of the characters (including the spirits!) and it was one of those books I was sad to see end. It was a tear-jerker but ultimately left me with a feeling of warmth and comfort. Lund writes well (particularly in the latest half to two-thirds of the book), and I particularly enjoyed how she portrayed the afterlife; it was comforting yet still mysterious (and avoids getting religious). I'd definitely recommend this book!
We Speak in Storms was an perfect story. I’m in my thirties but enjoyed this both as an adult and as someone who would have appreciated reading something like this in high e story is an accepting and mature look at not belonging or fitting in while being a teen in a little town. It’s a attractive meditation on death and dying and an honest but kind look at what it’s like to face the death of a parent. The history of the city is interwoven in the lives of the protagonists and their families, and the sections that present the voices coming from the spirit globe are poignant and beautifully written. The story does an perfect job of making the distant past relevant and connected to the modern world, and both we and the protagonists learn to recognize how related the old-time characters are to us in the modern e story is tightly focused (perhaps a small too tightly at times) on the protagonists and the corresponding spirits who visit them - taking some mystery and anticipation away from the end of the narrative. That said, the writing at the end was some of the best and most lyrical, and the end is very satisfying because it fully explores the extent of the characters’ growth (particularly Callie’s).
This gripping and atmospheric novel is astonishingly attractive and heartfelt. We Speak in Storms is a strong story about learning to allow go of the past and the pain and finding yourself in a globe constantly filled with tragedy. It questions what really happens after a little city tragedy and how one devastation can create it hard for anyone to move on and allow fty years ago, a deadly tornado tore through the town’s drive-in film theater and killed a lot of people, wiping out a complete generation. Now in show time, another tornado touches down in the same spot the drive-in film theater was, which not only leaves the living clearly shocked, but brings together three teenagers that run into a few of the Storm Spirits, the ghosts of those who died. And through this journey, this connection, each hero starts to understand the power of the past and how it can keep someone down if they don’t allow go of the things they can’t talie Lund is an extraordinary author, with gorgeous prose and attractive globe building. Lund brings readers a powerful and poignant debut. Anyone who reads We Speak in Storms can connect with one of the characters in some way; the main three characters are all relatable, but each in a various way. Brenna is learning how to navigate school now that she is back to being an outcast after her boyfriend breaks up with her. Joshua is learning to be himself in a city that is not too keen on acceptance. And Callie has to learn that you can’t change the inevitable and that you only have so much time on this Earth. The various stories intertwine with each other to make a stunning debut novel that will easily leave readers pondering on their ld in multiple point of views, We Speak in Storms will grip you and present you what people are like after a devastating aftermath that wiped out a whole generation. But We Speak in Storms doesn’t just address the storm, but also what we, as humans, have to do years after the devastation and while facing fresh and unforeseen obstacles. These depictions and scenarios feel so true and heartbreaking that it’s difficult not to feel something for these characters. The emotions and sorrow leap off each page as if it was the reader experiencing those emotions. And that right there, to me, is something I look for in any book I read: an emotional connection to share with the characters and the story. And Lund did a phenomenal job connecting it all.We Speak in Storms is a beautifully haunting yet realistic story. Natalie Lund has weaved an emotional tale of the living and the dead, and it’s a story I will recommend to everyone.
This book was a bookclub pick for the month. It was a fast read that held my attention from begin to finish with a realistic setting and characters dealing with issues that face a lot of of our youth today. The twist was how their issues were resolved. Would like to revisit these characters in a few years!!

This has become really irritating. Please tell me how to obtain rid of it. There's no EXIT Button on your app.

Even though I am pronouncing sentences correctly it is showing my accepted count as 1 only while my total file count has reached 42. Need a clarity on what went wrong and why the application is not accepting my sentences. Also there are errors in the sentences that appear on screen.

I haven't got my money..First I loved this application when I had used it 1st in my old acc I earned my but in this acc I have 0.32 pronunciation score and I will obtain 38.5 from this application and if I will not obtain my I will stop using this application from both of my accounts.. Thank you so much
Very much disappointed with the sentence starting with 'n' and ending with 'sportstar n'. What to do? inspite to saying it correctly in a lot of ways, the sentence gets always rejected. Please deliver atleast error sentence in the app. Its impossible to speak such error words
This is making people fool... It says that it would only take your 30% of sentences even you speak more than 30% of sentences correctly and clearly... And also in my case the application accepted my almost 30% of my sentences on the first day and from the next day the application is not accepting even one sentence, it rejected all the sentences even it is said correctly. This application making fool
Very amazing and trustable.I have earn around 350/- but this application is not working properly...I am talking continuously for latest 2days but my payment was not updating....i dont know if there is any technical fault or any other reason...I also gave feedback but no improvement
The application is amazing for earning...but there are some problems in this app...This application didn't give correct sentence. Maximum sentence begin with letter N and end with letter N...If I pronounce N than it's not accepted. Please improve this app...and provide us correct sentences.
When the application is opened it asks you to wait while it downloads sentences. but then sentences dont appear even after waiting for 10 mins. Then the application asks you to reset the app. It's really annoying. I sent this query on the contact email provided here but then i havent received the response in 2 days. So what am i supposed to do? I dont even wish to give two stars. Ill be waiting fir you to fix the issue or else ill create the two stars one.
The Application is a amazing one but there are some serious problems which need to be dealt with. could you please pronounce 'ntokyo', 'kumarchprasad', 'sportstarn'? These are the mistakes created by the content writers or the computer generated mistakes. But most of the sentences are with such mistakes which the application don't accept when pronounced right or wrong. I have Earned almost 200 rupees and got stuck with these content mistakes since hours. None of the sentences read are being accepted bcoz of text mistak
👌👌👌Super application i have seen... This application paying amount next day correctly😍... But we can earn only Rs.300 in a language😔... So i am feeling bad💔... If you give no limits to earn or increase the limit, i feel so happy😍😘... Then i will give 5 starts🌌... Its a wonderfull app💟... I hope you change the limits to earn..... 😘👍
Everything is amazing in this application but files are not uploading on time. My 1000 files are pending not uploading for two days I gave lots of feedback but there is no response that's why i am removing 2 star maine unistall kar diya kyuki ye thik se work nhi kar rha h file time pe upload nhi hoti h dimag kharab ho gya 1000 file pending h aur query karne par bhi koi response nhi mil rha very bad.
I have this application 3 dayz before and i have recorded 640 sentences but u accept only 139 and is total 24.3rs. But from yesterday old sentences r repeat again and again and if i m trying to record but ur application not count those repeted sentences. This is not my fault that ur application repeat the sentences. Plz look or i will delete this app.
I think that the application is amazing for additional income. I have earned Rs.450 and above in just 3-4 days. And i'm getting regular payments also. But one issue is when mobile screen was rotated the files were skipped. Plz check this issue so that the working files may not missed. My suggestion is to you test to give small more revenue for per file.Otherwise it is amazing enough.
one of the best apps and i have earned more that 200 in just one week and if we can spend bit more for speaking then you can earn more problem: one issue is when i starting speaking to record display gets off and i face problem only when recording sentences so i would like you to solve this quickly
I dont understand what the application is the about.. I am honestly telling that I have spoke for nearly 30 mins non-stop..nothing comes no nothing..😕 How does it works?😟 All nonsense I have wasted my crucial time in this application but no effect ..no notifications ..no money😖 Please help🙏🏻
Waste of time, after submitting 469 files. It shows only 1 file is accepted. What a waste of time and energy. Useless app. Not recommended. I don't know which accent now i have to use. U.K, U.S, Or (Neutral) which i am using till now. Waste of time such a waste of time
