I haven't done much since S.D. Perry's The Summer Man arrived on my Kindle except read it. I'm an exceedingly picky reader, and in my opinion Ms. Perry doesn't put a foot wrong here from beginning to end. Her prose is superb, her plotting sure, and she handles a varied and utterly believable cast of characters deftly and skillfully while telling a gripping story that's well worth your time, money, and attention. I really hope I don't have long to wait for her next book.
Anyway, on with this new book of hers, I thought the story was very entertaining, certainly did not want to put the book down. I read it in between two days worth of busy work and was enjoying it (and that mention or reference on Carl Jung and his concepts of archetypes was great for me!). One thing that Perry does very well in all her novels, this one no exception, is that she's able to have a slew of characters in one story, but still manage to give you as much background or emotion as she can fit to each individual, which helps to give you empathy or other emotions once some thing (good or bad) happens to that character. Love them or hate them, these characters felt real. I especially felt this way about the main character Amanda and her somewhat gradual growth from a pot-smoking vagabond sex freak girl to a more (slightly more) responsible and quick-under-pressure woman. You feel the characters' mood shifts, ups, lows, and so on, and I liked that.
The story did move along slow in the beginning but because of so many characters. Some time had to be spent molding these individuals, otherwise you wouldn't have given a care about them, and so I had no problem in the speed of the novel there quite frankly.Read more ›
