    Hi, I'm Ryan Winfield. I'm a 39-year-old novelist, poet, and screenwriter living in Seattle. If your book club would like me to attend your next get together, either in person or via Skype, please don't hesitate to ask. I respond personally to all reader messages and you can get in touch with me at www.ryanwinfield.com.

    I've been asked why I write. I write because I remember.

    I remember waking up to snow. Great buckets of it poured from the gray skies and blanketing everything in quiet white. I remember racing to dress, struggling with my boots. "Here, don't forget your mittens." I remember the soft thump of that first footstep in the cold and virgin powder, the tracks looking back, foghorns blowing on the mist-covered bay. I feel the canvas paper bag cutting into my shoulders, the weight of Sunday's headlines heavy on my mind. I see the trees bowed with armloads of white, as if to curtsey my passing. I remember rubber bands and ink stained hands. A car spun sideways in a ditch. Always a car. Then barking dogs, a distant chainsaw. Freckles throwing fastballs that hurt for the cold of them on my neck. I remember snowmen, and igloos, and icy trails through the white and wondrous woods. And I remember sweet Mrs. Johnson waiting at her door. The smell of Avon powder, her thin smile, an envelope pressed into my palm--ten dollars and a peppermint candy cane thank you. Evening now. I remember running downtown--Salvation Army bells, white lights strung in sidewalk trees, bundled shoppers bent against the wind. I remember the heavy door, the warmth, the wood. The bookstore! Smells of paper and leather and ink. Walls of worlds bound and waiting for me to read.

    Nothing has affected me as much as reading has. Dickens, Tolkien, and Lewis raised me. And while I've walked through my own hell, made my own mistakes, and found my own redemption, always there have been books. Books to help me escape, books to teach me when to stay and fight, books to help me see where I've been wrong and where I've been right.

    I write because I remember. And I write because I still dream.

    Zuerst fand ich die Geschichte durchaus interessant. Im Laufe des Romans, vor alem zum Ende hin, wurde er immer unglaubwürdiger, die handelnden Personen nicht mehr konstant. Selbst als Ökologe kann ich die Schussfolgerungen, die zum Park Service führen, nicht nachvollziehen. Zu viele Punkte bleiben unberücksichtigt Die Folgerungen, die in folgenden Romanen aufgearbeitet werden sollen, bin ich, auch aufgrund mangelnder wissenschaftlicher Grundlagen, nicht bereit nachzuvollziehen.
    Schöne Idee, aber zu wenig Substanz.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen wonderful start to a new series 19. Oktober 2012
    Von Robin Landry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Having read Ryan Winfield's debut novel, South of Bixby Bridge, I wondered what he'd write about next. I loved Bixby Bridge, but I was surprised that The Park Service was in such a totally different genre. Bixby Bridge is a very adult novel, while The Park Service is geared towards teen readers in the same way Harry Potter and the Hunger Games are for kids. Park Service has young people as its main characters, but the dilemmas the young people face are very adult.

    The main character is Aubrey Van Houten, named for his mother who died before Aubrey could know her. Aubrey lives with his father, in a 5 story underground community, miles beneath the ground of what was once New Mexico. Everyone lives underground because of the war that was fought 900 years ago where everything on the surface was destroyed. Mankind now hangs by a thread, existing underground, living in cramped quarters, only reading about the beautiful earth that once was in books.

    The story joins Aubrey at age 15, just days before the test he will take to determine what level he'll spend the rest of his life living and working on. Aubrey's father is 35, the cut-off age in Holocene II, and is now ready to join his wife in the Eden promised everyone when they die. Eden is a virtual world where you can live out eternity doing anything you wish and with with your loved ones who've passed on before you.

    I can't say any more about the plot, other than to say it's very exciting, and unexpected. Park Service gives us a chance to examine who were are as a species, and whether the world really would be a better place without us. Like the Hunger Games, Winfield challenges our sacred beliefs about ourselves. Book I of The Park Service, sets us up to learn more about the dysfunctional, and sometimes cruel world Aubrey lives in, and one that we should all realize could be ours if we don't mature enough as a species to stop it.

    Good authors entertain us, really good authors make us examine ourselves, and the great ones do both at the same time. Those are the books that really capture our collective imagination. The Old Man and the Sea wasn't just about fishing, it was about the internal battle we have with our flaws, that if we can conquer those fears, we can become the hero who brings back wisdom to the tribe.

    I'm never sure if authors know that they're playing out the Hero's Journey talked about the Joseph Campbell, or if they just let their imaginations go and accidentally stumble across the formula that is so satisfying to our souls. Regardless, Ryan Winfield gets is right for a second time, and while working in a completely different genre. What a wonderful new writer. I can't wait to read the next 2 books in the Park Service series. I hope he's fast writer, and that someone smart makes this into a movie.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen This is the start of what promises to be a GREAT series! 17. Oktober 2012

    You don't get many YA books that are written from the by a man and from a male first person POV, and I love that about this book. I think that it was a refreshing change from so many YA books being told from the female POV.

    The world that Mr. Winfield creates here is very well thought out and perfectly captured down to the last detail. This story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world nearly 900 years from present day. Aubrey is a young man on the verge of truly becoming a man. Little does he know how much his life is going to change. He is faced with challenges that will shape him into the man who will hopefully be able to change the world he knows for the better. Early on he meets Jimmy and forges a friendship with him that is stronger than any other relationship he has had previously. Then Hannah enters the picture rounding them out to a trio on a mission to save their world and hopefully humankind along with it.

    It's so hard to do this review without posting spoilers so I am going to have to keep my comments to a minimum as far as the plot is concerned. Suffice it to say, I really enjoyed the book. The character development is very well done and really I think the plot moved along a really nice pace all through the story. Mr. Winfield is excellent with description and didn't let us down with this book.

    The only thing I had a problem with, and it's really tiny, is that suddenly about 1/2 way through the book Jimmy starts cursing and he only does it a couple of times, but it seemed unnecessary and kind of out of the blue. Other than those couple of words, one use of the F word, this is a really clean YA book. I don't mind cursing in the books that I read, but my 12 year old daughter wants to read this one and I really have to think about whether I want to let her read it.

    This book is the start of a great series. It has a little bit of everything in it and can really appeal to a pretty wide audience. I know that I can't wait for the next book!

    5.0 von 5 Sternen The Park Service: Book One 15. Oktober 2012
    Von N. Cousino - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Ryan Winfield follows up his first novel South of Bixby Bridge with The Park Service, the first in a trilogy that is sure to become popular amongst fans of young-adult fiction.

    Reminiscent of other young-adult fiction series novels such as Divergent and Delerium, The Park Service connects you with characters who immediately catch your interest and keep you suspended as they endevor to work their way through multiple plot twists. With a bit of romance and plenty of suspense, this novel keeps you turning the pages to the very end, and eager for the next book in the trilogy.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Good single book, not sure if trilogy material. 13. Januar 2013
    Von mapleleafmanny - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Overall, it's a good book. I do feel like a lot of the ideas and plot points were borrowed from various other books, movies, and tv shows; those kinda lessened the quality of the book in my opinion. (Hunger Games, Doctor Who plotlines from varying episodes)

    In a way, I have no idea where book 2 well take us in this storyline. The book certainly didn't stop us off with a cliffhanger. I actually feel that the story ended with mostly all the questions answered, and the"future" being fairly easily guessable.

    It's a good attempt, but I hope the next few books aren't just stretching out a story that doesn't need to be stretched or just borrowing ideas that have already been written/created.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen More dystopian fiction. Interesting concept, but mighty bleak. 13. Juni 2014
    Von Lardeelion - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    Mild Spoilers...

    I realize I'm in the minority here, and it may be because I'm sensitive and because I went to school to obtain a degree in Environmental Science that this book bothered me. It's a very interesting concept, and a good one. But we are awash in youth dystopian fiction right now, and this is yet another example that it's everywhere.

    The general scenario presented is all-too-probable. The earth was trashed. It's believable and it's disturbing because it's in the distinct realm of possibility. I found the revelations about the "afterlife" in Eden to be very, very disturbing, and that's not a reflection on the author, but on myself, I suppose. It just bothered me and I had to put the book away for a while. Also, the relationship between Hannah and Aubrey developed mighty quickly and without much substance.

    I did like the book but I didn't enjoy it. If you're a worrywort about our children's future on this planet, this book will make it worse. Perhaps that's why it didn't appeal to me as much as to everyone else.
