1) Surprise at the quality and craftsmanship from an unknown (to me) author,
2) As much enjoyment from "how" its written as from the plot/story,
3) Author's outstanding integration of a very dry type of observational humor.
I read a lot. It might be said I consume books in an addictive manner. I often "skip-read" unconsciously...often glossing past descriptive prose that get in the way of the story unfolding faster. With Mr. Doucette, the degree to which I do this becomes apparent, as I keep skipping Backward because I find I actually Would like to hear what a house looks like, or how a street scene appears, or what someone might be wearing. Because Doucette keeps finding unique ways and places to pick up the corners of daily reality and give me a glimpse at something I hadn't thought of before, or remind me of some little quirk I once found interesting but had long since forgotten.
Definitely worth seeing for yourself...
seems they start strong but disappoint at the end. This tendency is certainly not limited to Gene Doucette. I read quite a bit and I think lame
finishes in modern fiction might be the rule, not the exception. Of course I can say that having never attempted to write a book-length story myself.
In short, I would have rated this story at least four stars, given a more satisfying ending.
