5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fiction from a very dark and twisted mind November 2, 2008
Format:Paperback
Christopher Alan Broadstone is one of the darkest authors in horror fiction today.

Puzzleman, as a character, is more twisted, more evil, and more demented than anything Clive Barker or Steven King has ever created. The Dark Man (The Stand) and Pennywise (IT)would do well to take lessons from Puzzleman.

The book is incredibly well written. The graphic imagery of Christopher Alan Broadstone's writing is the stuff that nightmares spring from. There are multiple story lines being told and Christopher's ability to keep them straight, believable, and memorable is unmatched in anything I've read since the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. Chris creates a history behind the Puzzleman that creates a deep horror of the knowledge that Puzzleman's existence is eternal and he's responsible for the most horrific acts of history including the holocaust.

If you buy one horror novel this year, make it this one! And then get THREE DEAD GIRLS (DVD) to witness this incredibly dark and twisted mind bring three shorts to terrifyingly beautiful imagery with the outstanding actor Tony Simmons!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Yet it was the unwritten commandment..." November 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
"the eleventh, which Amanda had broken most often: Thou shalt not tell thy true feelings about God."

*Read via Kindle Unlimited

Young Amanda, a crafted sculptress, is still reeling and broken from the recent loss of her child and disillusion of her marriage. When she haggles for an enigma in the form of an earring from a street vendor her life spirals further down into a living nightmare.

The earring belongs to the Puzzleman, a living and eternal conundrum, and he has his sights set on Amanda. But another has targeted Amanda as well, and he brings with him harsh truths.

Ghosts of the past have a hand in the events of the present and Amanda's soul isn't the only one at stake.

"it was well after midnight when Amanda fell to her knees at baby Alan's grave, a shovel in one hand and a bottle of vodka the other."

Puzzleman is a hell of a read. It's lofty & dense, fluid & yet obtuse. Hitting on all sides of the spectrum, from heavy to romantic to gruesome. Like a nightmare set to Behtovan's 5th, this book can be as chaotic as it's main nemesis and It's certainly not going to be everybody's cup of tea, as it is aimed at readers who like a little more sides and garnish to their thick, meaty meal.

Throughout you are surrounded by rich, fully formed characters and vivid locales, with everything given a sense of depth, dimension and history. And narrative wise, there isn't much in the way of downtime. As you settle in to Broadstone's regal prose you are suddenly jarred by an abrupt viscous and expletive passage. And when not dealing with the escalation of the main story, he drops heavy doses of background info and history revisions to keep track of.

4.0 out of 5 stars A highly original horror novel October 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Puzzleman by Christopher Alan Broadstone is one ambitious novel. When you first start reading it you think its going to be a gruesome horror novel meant to shock people. That’s exactly what it is, but as you start reading you find there is a lot of depth to the story and characters. The story begins with a woman named Amanda buying an earring that looks like a ball of metal wires. Amanda is recently divorced and her infant child has died leaving her bitter and wondering where her life went wrong.

Little does she know that the earring will soon lead her to some answers she doesn’t want. Amanda isn’t the only one searching for answers in Puzzleman. We soon meet a legless heroin addict named Erik who wants vengeance, a professor named John who feels his life has passed him by, a French vintner named Jeannette who wants to revisit a lost love and a former detective named Ben who wants to get back into the game. All of the characters are searching for something and all of their destinies are intertwined in the Puzzleman’s maze like pipeworld.

The pipeworld is a place where life is eternal but is also a place of suffering. It’s a place of living nightmares crawling with grumemonsters but also a place where the five people in the story can find what they are missing. The Pipeworld is like a giant macabre puzzle with the puzzleman as the master and the people as the pieces. The question is, can the pieces find the answers they seek and escape with their sanity?

My Favorite character in Puzzleman was Amanda, this is a woman who has questioned god and everything else around her since she was a child. It almost seems like god is punishing her for her questions with the death of her young child and her abusive husband.
