Now, for Manteria’s RERUN. The protagonist is a guy named Charles (Charlie) Williams that has strange visions. He eventually uses these visions to save a girl named Jennifer from death—more than once. Charlie’s visions and his relationship with Jennifer are beyond coincidental. The story intertwines between various other visions, other characters, and Jennifer’s past until it boils up into a twist-filled conclusion. The plot may start slow, but it ramps up after the initial half.
You can tell Manteria is from New York, and the writing is benefited because of it. Readers like me appreciate the description and authentic feel of the environment. You can also tell that Manteria enjoys reading popular authors like Stephen King (he even mentions one of King’s novels in the story) because the writing often complements those same styles. So if you like Wendig or King (specifically King’s earlier not-too-scary works), you’ll probably dig RERUN.
A few things dragged this book down for me. The first would be the adjective- and adverb-heavy writing. Both have their places (see Harry Potter), but RERUN uses them to stop the story’s progress. Pacing is key.Read more ›
This book kept my attention and the author did a good job of making me interested in the main characters life. There were a few typos but not so many that I did not want to finish. The writing style is easy to read and for the most part the very detailed descriptions of minute details works but it did need to be toned down in some instances. I feel this author has a best seller in him and it may even involve these characters but this novel is not it. I understand the praise from another reviewer in that the author did not follow the cliche main character hero saves the world storyline but what was missing for me was purpose. Why did Charles live the life he did? What was the purpose of giving the reader a glimpse into his misery and doom and why did we need to follow his journey? If there is not some type of satisfying ending or hope for improvement in the next life cycle then was there at least a lesson to be learned? If there had even been a short epilogue of a new start over with different outcomes then this may have received 5 stars. Please read this for yourself, you may do a better job of understanding the authors ultimate message and this is an engaging read.
Chris, I am so impressed with you...first the recipes, now the book...holy smokes!!! Your family has reason to be proud of you...you're a man of many talents!
Get that next one written & published....;)
The novel follows Charles, a young man in New York City who experiences glimpses of events that are yet to come and sometimes events of the past. The explanation for why he has this ability is not given sufficient power, to be honest. The logic behind it doesn’t make a great deal of sense but the author sticks with it. As a character, Charles is relatable at times, due in no small part to Manteria doing a good job conveying the mental toll these visions have on him. Charles is still rather wooden at times. There were occasions that I just didn’t care about his ultimate fate but the story’s forward momentum kept my attention. The same could be said of Jennifer, the love interest of the story, who only has a few facets of personality despite having an intriguing, heart-breaking backstory.
One of the reasons for the fatigue I mentioned above is the use of superfluous detail. I think this has more to do with Manteria being a first-time novelist than anything else. There are numerous instances of unnecessary detail provided to the reader, from how dinner is eaten to the morning rituals we all go through. I’ve used this idiom before and I believe it applies here specifically. Sentences should do one of two things in a story: reveal character or move the story forward.Read more ›
