Jack lives alone in a house near the swamp... got it real cheap. But it is peaceful in the this area although somewhat isolated... no correct that, very isolated.
Some thoughts on "Denning Swamp"...
1.) the type of creepy atmosphere that could only be found in a swamp at nighttime.
2.) a slow methodical ratcheting up of the tension as Jack's situation goes from bad to worse.
3.) although the author provides a few remote suggestions as to the cause of Jack's predicament, no real explanation is ever given to provide the reader with some of the whys or wherefores as to the reason for the situation that Jack finds himself in. There is a definitive ending but the reason for it was missing.
A well told, spooky ghost story.
A little more detail could have provided some missing answers and made for a more satisfying ending.
As it is... 4 Stars.
John Gattfield, the author, has a way of titling his books that make them attractive to me, The Ghost of Birch River Cabin, Denning Swamp, etc. Books named like that will attract me as this one did and his other ones do too. I'm glad I didn't recognize the name until I had downloaded it already or I might have skipped it.
So, enough of that, here, in Denning Swamp, Gaffield has come a long ways in his story telling. There was one part where the conversation was a little stiff, but in reality it was quite a real conversation between friends on break at work. Maybe I was expecting the worst and was hyperfocusing on it. Missing was the technical manual style of writing that plagued some of his other books.
Congrats to Gaffield on this book, its short, there is a mystery and it left me wanting more.
I look forward to more of his books.
Poorly edited, the beginning of the story is too long, and the ending too short.

I would have liked to have known more history about the swamp and, especially, the house. I don't need to be hand feed a plot but, I do like to have some pertinent information. Read morePublished on August 23, 2014 by Jeffrey
As soon as something begins to happen, the story just . . . ends. The author does a fair job of raising tension, but doesn't do anything with it.Published on May 8, 2014 by morehumanthanhuman
It leaves you hanging and it written, it seems, so that you will read his other stories. I do not recommend thisPublished on April 24, 2013 by Jennyjo1774
