Editorial Reviews

Review

"Trying to piece one's family back together after neglecting it for so long can be a difficult task. "Fish House" follows corporate head Alex Cole as he tries to get out of the game and reconnect with his daughter before it's too late. Moving to a whole new town though throws him at a new dose of life's challenges in a small fishing town, and Alex finds himself diving into the culture headfirst. "Fish House" is a poignant and humorous delve into life, with much to think about - recommended." John Burroughs, October Reviewers Bookwatch, The Midwest Book Review midwestbookreview.com

From the Author

Stephen Dougherty's novel Fish House was recognized in the August issue of The Jacksonville Magazine's 904, and is chosen and highlighted as one of the city's "Things To Do, Places To Go." Managing Editor, Natalie Wearstler jacksonvillemag.com

I really enjoyed the story and characters in this book. The detailed background was authentic and really added to the overall reading experience. This book was a real page turner with characters you feel you know. I highly recommend and look forward to more good reads from this author!

Not the worst book I've read, but I would have a hard time recommending it. The characters are not well developed and feel one dimensional. I never felt connected to the characters. The motivation of everyone involved is a mystery. The writing style... 'Jeff was blessed with an absurdly dry sense of humor, beloved by all, even if he and the Fish House guests would never admit to such mutual admiration". Isn't there a way to convey that info without straight out telling the reader? Most of the dialogue is wooden and very unrealistic. Feels like a first novel that could have used a more critical editor.

Great read! In it, you'll find the hard-nosed corporate executive who experiences tragedy in his life and decides to start over with something new, revealing the true character of the man. You'll also find the crazed mob guy and his group of thugs and while you may wonder how the two storylines at the beginning of the novel will ever intersect, they do and the author does a great job intermingling them.

Sweetness, love, a little humor, and little craziness like Hiaassen writes, and a flavor for the Florida we all know and love (I live in the state, but not in Jax).

Great story told very well!

Fish House was a slow starter for me , probably because I had a hard time connecting with the villains from the beginning- especially Victor, and was a little turned off by 'the ugly woman'.
The main character however, I fell for immediately- to me, he's a silent warrior that I hope will reappear in a sequel. (Maybe set in Washington or a vacation spot). Wherever it's set, I'm sure he can handle himself.
I knew absolutely nothing about fish house operations before reading this book, and the author did an excellent job of 'educating without teaching'- grateful for that.
There were a few tender moments and definitely some 'oh no he didn't ' moments.
This book was informative, reflective but had it's gritty moments as well- just enough for a well blended novel.
I would recommend this book.
