First off, this book is not for children. There are sexually scenes. I don't seek out books with sexual themes, but everything worked together to make "Down From Ten" what it is.
The ensemble of characters and the way they interact is what truly makes this book. They discuss art, cooking, religion, psychology, sex, and more in a way that is fascinating and true to those characters. At the same time, the author is not preachy in his handling of these issues. It is about interesting people being interesting.
Oh, and there is a mystery. A truly frustrating (in the best possible way) element of the story is the mystery of 'what just is going on here?'. And we readers stay in the dark until the end. No spoilers here, you will just have to experience it for yourself.
I experienced it for the first time as an audio drama that was produced by the author, and I had to wait between episodes. I highly recommend seeking out that audio book, the voice actors are brilliant with this intriguing material. But I'd prefer that you buy the book first and put some coin into this author's pocket.
I interviewed J. Daniel Sawyer for my podcast; he is one of the most intelligent and congenial people I've interviewed. This story is the kind that only someone like Dan can create.
The story is beautifully knit, and all the pieces come together at the end in a satisfying manner. This author sure knows how to draw out the suspense and build tension. Boy does he ever!
