Keep them coming Josh.
The characters were unique (and no I don't mean because of their sexual orientation). Each person had a unique outlook on the, way they saw the world which enhance how they reacted to what was going on around them. Mr. Lanyon even managed to give his walk-on characters a distinct personality and each person played a part in helping David figure out what was going on.
David goes into the situation with many preconceived notions. I loved how his preconceptions were slowly torn down, from his feelings about the murders, the mine catastrophe, Julian, and the other members of the boarding house. David's growth was subtle and beautifully layered as he opened his eyes to look past outer appearances to see what's within.
The mystery inside THE DARK FAREWELL was well-done. Mr. Lanyon did an excellent job of leading his readers down the incorrect path. As a result, I didn't know who the murderer was until right before David did.
I also must give Mr. Lanyon's kudos for showing the depth of emotion between David and Julian. It was more powerful to me because it was so subtle. Even with the subtlety I could still tell how deeply they both cared about each other. Several fans of his had informed me that they didn't think I would like Mr. Lanyon's work because it was more focused on the mystery instead of the romance.Read more ›
Trying to be as ambigious as possible, I think that he would have been vulnerable enough to the reader after we see how whole ghost thing affected him, and I really loved that he was participating in the whole thing even when he knew it was not working. I thought, oh good, he has some real flaws and he is vulnerable in that regard.
But did he need to be THAT ill as well? And can we say been there done that? Sorry, I love reading about the guys who have some vulnerabilities, I do NOT like reading about the "guys" who give out to me damsel in distress vibe and by the end of the story Julian certainly gives this vibe to me.
I would have given this story five plus stars, unfortunately Julian's needing to be taken care of to that degree quite ruined it for me, so it gets four stars, because I cannot help but compare this amazing writing with so much trash that I have read, but it is really 3.5 stars.
