Revue de presse

"Lars Anderson crafts a gripping narrative that puts you at the terrifying center of the tornado and its devastating aftermath. The Storm and the Tide is an emotional ride, capturing the rise of a team and the rebirth of a town with grace and power." --Gay Talese

"The Storm and the Tide is one of the most important sports books in years. Lars Anderson has taken the tragedy of April 27, 2011 and turned the events into a truly inspirational and unforgettable story for the ages. I don't remember when I have been more personally affected by a book.'' --Paul Finebaum, radio host and author of My Conference Can Beat Your Conference

"In stirring prose and with reporting that digs to the emotional core, Lars Anderson captures the dignity and heroism of Tuscaloosans in the aftermath of the April 2011 tornado. The Storm and the Tide is a compelling and inspiring read." --Warren St. John, New York Times bestselling author of Rammer, Jammer, Yellowhammer

"The Storm and the Tide is both haunting and hopeful, heartbreaking and inspiring. It's an important story that needed to be told, and Lars Anderson is the perfect writer to do so. An absolutely beautiful book." --Jeff Pearlman, New York Times bestselling author of Showtime

"Lars Anderson takes us to Tuscaloosa in a time of tragedy and answers all of our questions in The Storm and The Tide. A great football story. A great human story. Roll Tide, indeed." --Leigh Montville, New York Times bestselling author of Ted Williams

A deeply reported, sensitively rendered story that avoids cliché and persuades us that there might indeed be such a thing as "football therapy."--Kirkus ReviewsKirkus Reviews

Présentation de l'éditeur

On April 27, 2011, a powerful tornado ripped through the heart of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, leaving 53 dead and a path of unimaginable devastation. In the aftermath, Alabama coach Nick Saban and his football team went out into the community, sharing its grief and aiding the recovery. They forged an unbreakable bond, and in a place where Saturdays are dedicated to the Crimson Tide, "Let's Play for Tuscaloosa" became a rallying cry, an emotional touchtone that transcended the playing field.

Barrett Jones, a 302-pound tackle, went street by street with a chainsaw clearing debris. Diehard fans Bob and Dana Dowling survived but lost their home. Long-snapper Carson Tinker, whose girlfriend Ashley Harrison died in the storm, emerged as the public face of Tuscaloosa's resilience. The rebuilding effort became a personal crusade; the football team was now competing for a cause much greater than a national championship. In The Storm and the Tide, Lars Anderson chronicles the rise of a team, the building of a dynasty and the resurgence of a town.

Par Killing Dinner - Publié sur Amazon.com

A true literary narrative that weaves together the lives (and deaths) of the residents of Tuscaloosa, AL during the April 27, 2011 tornado. Suspenseful, emotional, touching, The Storm and The Tide tells the story of one of the most deadly weather events in U.S. history against the back drop off the University of Alabama and the 2011 National Champion Crimson Tide football team. The book takes you into the middle of the mile-wide tornado and into the lives of the people who were in its path. A riveting, emotion-provoking read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Triumph. 25 août 2014
Par Cato - Publié sur Amazon.com

As someone who lives in Tuscaloosa, I have my own vivid memories from that day, as does everyone else in this city. The sight and sound of that beast will never leave us, nor will the memory of nearly every second of that day and the days afterwards. We all carry some sort of psychological scar, and reading Anderson's text forces us to confront them. This book does a simply amazing job of capturing the fear and emotional intensity of that day, and the slow but steady recovery efforts. Frankly, it makes the first half of this book very difficult to read, but yet doing so was personally cathartic. Then, as the book turns its main focus to the events of that football season, it has the power to uplift you yet again and re-experience the joys of that championship season. An amazing accomplishment. Additionally, Anderson manages to deftly weave a nice dose of Alabama football history and a mini-biography of Nick Saban and his "process" throughout the text, becoming a fine work of sports history (And I will add this----anyone who believes that Saban is a cold-hearted snake will find that they are very, very wrong after reading this book and discovering the things he did for this city after the storm). In the end, this is a book about heroes---some famous, most unheard of---that rose from the destruction and soldiered on. Uplifting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Loryn Brown Tide 20 août 2014
Par Barbara Moss - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
A very good portrayal to readers about something nearly incomprehensible to most of us. Interesting background about the people who suffered tragedy and those who went on into the future with hope. Miss Loryn Brown will be remembered by many--including those who read this book. My prayers are with the families of the victims and the survivors. I wish the Michigan State University Spartans (Go Green) could play the Crimson Tide!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The American Spirit Is Alive and Well 7 octobre 2014
Par L. Charles Wimer III - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
After reading The Storm and the Tide, you will never look at the University of Alabama the same again. This is a great read that shows how leaders mold the minds of our young people and develops/nurtures them into giving back to a community in need. The Storm and the Tide really proves how sports serve as an outlet when it is needed most but it also manages to put sports into the proper prospective -- it is truly just a game. The book truly exemplifies the true American spirit and shows how WE come together in the midst of a catastrophy. The football program (and particularly Nick Saban) serve as the back drop for this book and how it is used to bring the community together and most importantly to families who lost loved one during tornado. The author brilliantly captures the mindset of those most affected. You don't need to be a football fan to enjoy The Storm and the Tide because it is a story of so much more: The Human Spirit. As a die-hard sports fan, I was never a fan of the Crimson Tide or Nick Saban -- until now. I truly have the utmost respect for Mr. Saban and all those affiliated with the University of Alabama. I sincerely hope the author does a sequel in the next 10 years -- a where are they now. Very nicely done Lars, I can't wait to read your next book.
