  1. The 40% sale came and I browsed and I saw this one and threw it in the cart like nobody s business I really hope it s awesomesauce 3.35 I m a little torn about how to rate this story The idea behind it and the talents and gifts that Bobby and his family have and how they use them is very cool I loved hearing how all the plants and vegetables talked and argued and had personalities I enjoyed the unusual way they used their powers for saving people and being superheroes Although I wish that had be [...]


  2. Only a shortie, but a very effective one.I love the magic Rebecca Cohen has invented for us here the system actually makes sense.If you re concerned about the environment, this book will give you cause for hope What It s not real Well, it makes so much sense it damned well ought to be The characters are also real, very nicely fleshed out for a novella.Although it ends quite soon sniff it does so without leaving you thinking it should have been longer except that you want , but that s just greed [...]


  3. This was an absolutely wonderful and creative story, quite unlike any I ve read before The sheer imagination here made me laugh and gasp Saving people with agricultural superhero powers, and obscene, foul mouthed carrots Brilliant stuff Bobby s whole family lineage is about their connection with the land The gifts are individual Bobby doesn t have his until he shares a kiss with his best friend, Mike Wanting to stand on his own two feet, however, Bobby leaves Mike behind to make a new life, work [...]


  4. A sweet novella with an interesting twist on the superhero theme Bobby s whole family has powers and they all contribute His father runs the farm that is the main source of their powers and where all of them return to recharge and heal.Bobby and Mike were very cute and sweet together and I enjoyed their story They were both good men who had allowed time and life to separate them While Bobby had left for the city there was nothing that prevented Mike from pursuing him and slapping some sense into [...]


  5. The phrase when he kissed me, the earth moved takes on a whole new meaning in this short story Bobby is a superhero of sorts with his power coming from nature He tried for a long time to unlock his power, but it wasn t until his first love, Mike, kissed him that he fully developed his gifts Several years later Bobby has moved on to a new town and a new life when a hate crime rocks his world, quite literally Back home on the family farm to rejuvenate Bobby comes to realize that he still loves Mik [...]


  6. My biggest complaint It was too short I wanted to read much about what the veggies were saying in this magical world D view spoiler I was startled to find him in the city so suddenly, though, with no explanation or description of his agonizing decision to move I think it would have strengthened the story to show how they had parted so the reader could better appreciate the emotional obstacles they faced in becoming reunited Still, a very good read and impressive world building in so short a sto [...]


  7. I won a copy of Rebecca Cohen s Life in the Land and really enjoyed the novella It combines coming of age, a timeless love, superheroes, fantasy, and contemporary for a fun mix I especially liked how the characters superpowers derived from the land and were renewed by it as well I actually learned something about plantlife reading the story I would have read a full length novel set in the author s creative world A good read, but too short, hence the four stars instead of five.


  8. In this fun short story, Ms Cohen takes the healing properties of living things and creates earth magic Not a new belief but when you tie in super powers and a hot boyfriend you come up with the ingredients for an enchanting story.


  9. This was quirky and cute Loved the superpowers and reading about the complaining vegetables I wish the relationship was a bit of the focus and it didn t jump so much Still, this was a cute short read.





  10. 3.5 StarsShort and sweet I wish the author wrote something in between the times instead of jumping forward.


  11. I hadn t re read the blurb before finally picking this one out of my tbr list, and it made for a fascinating reading experience The superpowers completely took me by surprise, and were great fun.It s a shame it wasn t better edited, as there were words that were incorrectly used and became distracting Favorite Quote It s been a long day I get you, hun Some days need vodka and pretty boys in hot pants.
