The story is really just a good old fashioned "good versus evil" tale, and it could have been highly engaging, but it gets so murky it's easy to completely lose track of why we're reading the novel at all, let alone attempting to care about any form of conflict. The action unravels in Storm, Illinois, but it isn't hard to forget that, as this little town receives nearly no push as a character itself, and when you've got a supposed epic battle brewing, the locale should certainly function as a memorable unit. But it doesn't, and virtually every character blends into one another due to the fact that Weaver has trouble delivering a smooth narrative. Scott doesn't paint a picture at all here, but simply... tells readers what's going on. There's a big difference between something like, say, the clouds swelled under the moon's soft fluorescent mask. Heavy with the lord's tears, cumulus threatened to empty her heart, and The weather was bad, it was going to rain. But the latter is what we get. It's drab, slow moving and tough to juggle in the eye of the imagination because it feels as though little imaginary work went into the assembly of the story.Read more ›
The book started out different from any thing else I have read in quite a while. The Damned Summer really got under my skin and I had a hard time putting it down. The gritty way the good in Scott's characters come through make one feel better about the imperfect world still being able to overcome evil. It is getting to be a harder fight. I am really looking forward to the next in the series. It also makes me want to read more from Scott Weaver.
I like the characters in this story, very believable, they live in every small town across America. but I hated to see Drew and Jenny removed already!
Seriously looking forward to the next in the trilogy.
"Nice guys finish last ..."
"... at the simple truth of the bad of Johnny just tasted sweeter than the good of Drew, which was just stupid ..."
Nonetheless, I was really glad that after half of the book, one of the most important characters had the nerve to say no partying tonight I need my sleep.
Once I had read my way well into the book, the plot took off and was intense, suspenseful and interesting.
The author is quite a master of words, painting images of fight scenes, carnivals and storms on an exciting literary canvas. I could imagine this book would make a good movie.

It's hard to know where to begin with this mess. For starters, there are scenes and characters which go absolutely nowhere, presumably to be addressed in a later book. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Alan S
