Michael Thomas Ford: Changing Tides



With a slow burning romance xcellent writing and amazing character development then I definitely recommend this book PS it doesn t hurt if you re a fan of John Steinbeck and his writing although if you aren t it will not detract from your The DIY Music Manual. Randy Chertkow Jason Feehan enjoyment of the book at all This is my second book by Michael Thomas Ford and I must say that he has the craft of writing down pat I don t know anything about his background and there s not much that is revealed by a casual googlewikipedia search but I am mildly obsessed with how his stories come to life He has a precision in describing small actions such asating a sandwich which put you right into the story right there with the characters He includes mastery level knowledge of very specific subject matter in this case marine biology diving and Steinbeck all thematically combined in a Monterey California setting He manages to write 3 protagonists yes 3 No Mans Daughter each with interesting and meaningful story arcs I don t know if that craft it taught in an MFA somewhere or is the result of diligent hard work but I do know that I can turn to this author for a reliable solid read I read this during an 18 hour train trip and despite all the otherntertainment at my fingertips in my iPod I could not put this book down I really like Michael Thomas Ford s Melody on Loan essays and I had a feeling I d like his novel work as well but this one which was said to be his best was incredibly difficult to find in Utah However during my visit to The Castro in San Francisco I found that famous bookstore A Different Light and knew I d find this book there with no trouble I did fancy that and am uite pleased with the storyPeople behave realistically here and the relationship between the father and daughter rang true I also always appreciate lovemaking scenes that don t sound the same as all the other ones out there and this one managed to step up It was a nice novel to fill my time and Injoyed myself Wow I m totally impressed I ve discovered that not only Steinbeck has a way of bringing people together in curious ways With some novels which switch usually the narrative between two characters you can lose the flow of the story This novel is clever in the way that the three characters not only have completely different voices but it deals with both straight and gay characters in The Toll-Gate eual measure and in a fully fleshed and multidimensional way Ben Ransome a 40 something marine biologist living modestly in Monterey California whose safe place is the ocean and the creatures hencounters there where he doesn t have to speak to anyone People aren t xactly my specialty To his surprise his x wife Carol calls from LA urging that their teenage daughter Caddie come to stay with him for the summer He left his family when Caddie was only seven Ben is a person who wants to be in control of his Empire of the Saviours (Chronicles of a Cosmic Warlord, emotions andxpects that people behave in a logical way That is the reason why he doesn t know how to understand and deal with his moody and aggressive daughter He loved his daughter that was never in doubt But he didn t feel this love as he knew others did It didn t radiate out from his heart and Ex On The Beach enfold him in golden warmth He felt constantly in shadow Caddie named after a creature of the sea16 year old a rebellious city girl with a mostly bad attitude coming and going as she pleases smoking marijuana staying out late and sleeping with guys She is angry at her father and not ready to forgive him for the lack of attempts to contact with her and her mother for years She realized that her father sntire life was a mystery to her Not that she cared really And logically she is not so happy to be dumped on her father s doorstep For years she had resented her father for not being there Now that he was she was still resenting him when what she should be doing was trying to see what kind of relationship they could have Hudson Jones an young graduate student who arrives in Monterey to authenticate a manuscript for a unpublished novel called Changing Tides supposedly written by John Steinbeck It s about a man who falls in love with his best friend It might be about Steinbeck s feelings for Ricketts The voice of Paul his dead lover who gave him the manuscript urges him on tells him to keep digging until he finds the truth Paul s ghost waited for him in New Haven had followed him here Those of Steinbeck and Ricketts were there as well It s time to face his demons from which he d run for too long and the newest of them It was Ben s misfortune that he had by whatever means become one of them He was afraid for Ben afraid what he Hudson might have done to him Some poison you can t never get out Had he somehow tainted this man who only wanted to be his friend His father s accusing voice Good Thinking echoes in his mind It s your poison doing this to him They were all of them at the same crossroadsven though their journeys had begun in places far apart Michael Thomas Ford uses many powerful detailed descriptions additional stories Death in Mumbai egthe story of Charlie and Tom from the manuscript and fabulous Blake Somerset audio narration in Changing Tides that compliment to his characters grow and change over this long hot summer OMG this magnificent power of the ocean and the

I skimmed this because my Dad asked me to and I love Monterrey However the first kiss isn t until 75% and I dislike stories about teenagers My Dad seems to like them because I was one so he was in this position He loved the last first sex scene so I read that to see what he was talking about This book is Promise at Dawn essentially a romance and it s a delivered believably with a minumum of sentiementality The characters are all realistically drawn likeable and refreshingly different Their inner musings never get overwroughtxcept for the teenager s and hers need to be The backrop the author has set up Monterey Steinbeck scuba society and marine biology is richly detailedand appealing I appreciated how the literary mystery in the book s center mirrors what s happening in the main characters lives The nd was genuinely touching without being cloying On the whole the book provided a pleasant place to go at the nd of the day It takes a while to get going though and its popluation of well adjusted characters seems to proclude any This review contains spoilers for the book Don t read if you don t want to knowThis books is told from three points of view Ben a marine biologist a visitor named Hudson and Ben s 16 year old daughter Caddie I m not a big fan of shifting points of view but at least Ford gives Bangkok Wakes to Rain each character full chapters which makes it less jarring for the readerPersonally I tend to get attached to one character s view and would rather stick with that However in this book that would definitely limit the reader s ability to know what was going on with the other two main charactersBen is a very closed off man much focused on his science and research than people He s probably the one character I most relate to He divorced and left his daughter andxwife nine years before and now Caddie who s going through a difficult time comes to stay with him in Monterey for the summer He has good intentions but he s got no idea how to deal with a bitchy teenage girl one who apparently is rather promiscuous as well We learn a lot about Caddie in her chapters why she does some of the things she does She s angry with her father and she goes out of her way to make him notice her She s frustrated by his very laid back attitude his inability to give her the confrontation she pushes him for So she tries harder which leads to a nearly tragic The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery endDuring this father daughter reunion Ben runs into a man named Hudson Hudson is reseaching Steinbeck s life He s trying to finish the work of a deceased loverBen and Hudson become friends It s Caddie who clues in on the attraction and she s jealous She wants to drive Hudson away from her fatherThis is where I was shaking my head I found it hard to believe that Ben would be so completely oblivious to being gay until his 40s I know there are people who don t come out until later years but we re inside Ben s head and he s confused and not really sure if he s gay or just attracted to Hudson that whole I m not really gay but just gay for you thing I m not sure I buy thatStill it was rather romantic that they got together in thend Plus Ben and Caddie do manage to come to terms with their relationship after a few tense chapters at the Darkmere end Michael Thomas Ford hasvolved into an Et si la maladie n'tait pas un hasard ? excellent writer of human nature Marine biologistBen Ransome has forgotten how to live by totally imersing himself in his work His world is turned upside down by the arrival of his sixteen year old rebellious daughter Caddiewho he hasn t seen in 7 years Ben is in the dark when it comes toven talking to Caddie To further complicate mattersHudson Jones a young gay man on an academic research to find the truth behing the relationship between John Steinbeck and his best friend Ed Ricketts Ben must come to life and face Caddie s open hostility and his attraction to Hudson This is not a book to rush through because of Ford s subtle glimpses the reader gets of their own ife 4 12 starsMaybe not my favorite book by Ford but still immaculately written with a perfectly tuned Den of Shadows (Gamblers Den ear to nuance pace character development and the ability to take seemingly unrelated lives and facts to weave them into an intricate and delightful tapestry Three main characters Ben an aloof and self sufficient divorced father who has found a place in life Maybe not the place that makes him happy but a place where he feels safe Then there is Hudson the young doctorate student with a dream and a nightmare both living inside him and driving him inual parts while at the same time making him blind to what life is putting in front of him Finally there is Caddie Ben s daughter a 16 year old who wants to punish her parents for their divorce but specially her father for what she sees as Scraps Of The Untainted Sky emotional abandonment What makes Ford s characters so special is that they appear to be completely clueless while at the same timexhibiting a degree of self awareness that very few people achieve without practicing some serious introspection This way the author provides the reader with the best of both worlds a look at the characters thoughts and feelings and why they think and feel that way and also the characters own thoughts and feelings about their thoughts feelings and actions If you like The Eric Carle Gift Set entertaining stories that don t hinge on sex scenesvery 10 pages.

R She closed her yes and followed his light going deeper and deeper until all that lay before her was a small circle of gold light that kept the sea monsters at bay I loved the diving sections Being critical it seemed a bit slow paced and rambling The collectors encyclopedia of antique marbles especially in the beginningAll things considered it s a solid rich and utterly compellingxploration of the nuances of a developing friendship and romance And it s sensitively well written and researched read I will definitely check this author other works Days later And I cannot help it I don t get Blake Somerset s voice out of mind I m totally crazy But how he talks about the nudibranchs it s really The Philosophy of Giambattista Vico erotic Nudibranchs Who would have thought that But this book is worth talking about it in other respects too because the author really has something to tell usIt s not just one story but three And I recommend you tonjoy the audiobook Blake Somerset s warm gently rolling voice multiplies your Lone Star Standoff enjoymentThe main thread of the story focuses on Ben and Caddie Caddie a divorce child is sent over the summer to herstranged father The girl is 16 and she is complicated So is her father a reserved marine biologist who has a hard time dealing with Punishment Of The Cheating Wife emotions The girl is on her way to growing up with all themotional complications to overcome Her biggest weakness is always blaming others for her own unhappinessThen there s Hudson a man who accidentally bumps into Ben And this collision is not without conseuences for both of themHudson s dissertation is about proving that the author John Steinbeck not only appreciates his best friend very much but loved him As in he was in love with him A scandal that needs to be covered up under all circumstances But Hudson has this unfinished manuscript that could prove anything And that s the story in the storyBesides all of this we go diving and More Punishment For His Cheating Wife experience the fascinating underwater world around MontereyThe book was so interesting that I finished it within a day Ben is an very interesting man and he is drawn absolutely real I m very glad to have of Ford on my shelf and I ll hear Blake Somerset againThis book isxtraordinary because it has something to tell that feels absolutely lifelike This story could have happened out there somewhereAnd that s what s so special about it 45 starsHas it Decision ever happen to you you got a notification that someone liked your review and your first thought was It has to be a mistake I have never read a book with this title Of course you have But you have already forgot Because it was nothing special in this book that could make you remember it weeks laterMichael Thomas Ford writes books I won t forget They are memorable I loveverything of this authors I ve read before and this book didn t disappoint me The View from Alameda Island either I like books with a multilayered plot when different stories are told in parallel with the main story line multi facetted stories that at first sight do not seem to be connected but the you read the you re aware of how deeply intertwined they re withach other Changing Tides is one of those books and I When Fox Is a Thousand enormouslynjoyed it At the beginning it reminded me of The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks Caddie s life was turned upside down when her parents divorced and her father Ben Ransome a marine biologist who always seemed to understand sea creatures better than human beings moved from LA to Monterey California Nine years later her mother who couldn t deal with Caddie s anger and her teen age rebellion decides it would be in 100 Innovations of the Industrial Revolution everyone s best interest if her 16 years old daughter spent the summer with her father in Monterey Hudson Jones a graduate student who believes he s found a lost John Steinbeck novel called Changing Tides comes to Monterey for a summer to hunt outvidence that it s a Steinbeck s original script and to find the answer to the most important uestion was it than just a friendship between John Steinbeck and his best friend Edd Ricketts a marine biologist And so we have than one main stories a fatherdaughter relationshipcan they re build their trust and make up for lost time John SteinbeckEdd Ricketts friendshipwas it in their relationship BenHudson or is it BenBenthere are things he has to know about himself and accept them to get to know happiness At last A summery This summer will become decisive for all protagonists The story is told from the views of those three characters in change we have Caddie s view Ben s and Hudson s And as a bonus a story from the lost novel Changing TidesI listened to this book and I bought the next MTF book as an audio dition when I was half through it and saw that Blake Somerset narrated all of MTF s books He did a great job Maybe for some readers the pace of telling will be a bit too slow and I agree that it s not a rush read the author takes time for many details and for intern monologues but I don t want to miss a single sentence in this book I smelled the sea salt I admired an amazing underwater world I lived through all motions and felt it sooo soo real soo close Now I want to learn scuba diving and I d like to re read John Steinbeck s Cannery Row and for sure I ll read of Michael Thomas Ford I know that I ve remembered this book for a long long time It is not a OMG it was hot kind of book but OMG what for a wonderful prose book.
