Davy is one screwed up guy. But then he has every reason to be. Reading this book made me want to pound someone into a pulp with my Kindle. That someone varied as I read through the book.
Blood, guts, horror, child abuse...and Davy, a despicable man you fight feeling sorry for.
The car wreck scene was the first scene in a book that I've had a nightmare about in a LONG time. Very vivid, to say the least.
If you like Mark Nykanen (Hush) or Richard Laymon or Michael Prescott, you'll like this book. I liked "Dismember" more than Pyle's other two offerings - Freeze and Down the Drain - and I enjoyed them. You can get "Dismember" and "Freeze" in one book called Mountain Madness, I noticed.
This was not the gruesome, messy, sloppy story that I was expecting. Instead, Mr. Pyle introduced me to a different kind of monster; a plodding, methodical and conniving being and I liked it!
I thought that the story was well thought-out and artfully written. The pacing of the story was a smidgen on the plodding side for me but patience is rewarded.
Nicely done sir! One favor though, if you don't mind, forget my birthday please.
The writing is fun, fast, and sharp. The victims are given a chance to fight back. Davy/Dave/Hank may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but he is fast, dangerous and would be the first to say he loves his new family even when faced with the rebellions of his "sons." Daniel Pyle has put together this wondrous novel that keeps on moving the span of one whole day, a day those people he meets will never forget, provided they live to survive it. Consider this book, download it, and then checkout the other works of Daniel Pyle. If you love the wild man in the woods, you need not go no farther than the obsession of Davy/Dave/Hank to put together his new family.
Another aspect of Daniel Pyle's writing style I like in this book is his use of creative similes and metaphors, which are unique to the particular point of view of the character we are seeing the events through. For example, when the station wagon hits the moose in the beginning, it crumples "like the pages of an old, wet comic book" from the point of view of six-year-old Davy.
