I enjoyed reading this story during the wee hours of the night when I couldn't sleep as the act of reading this tale, got my overactive brain to calm down, not that I recommend it as a bedtime story. Good story once you figure out that it has both flashbacks and present tales on the whole story.
As for the book; it hooked me really quickly and the different time periods covered kept me engaged thought the entire book.
I absolutely love to read stories within a story, and H. MAN does this chillingly well. The novel opens with the adult Stony kidnapping the mysterious young "prophet." Then Clegg weaves memories of both the young and the older Stony, narrowing each until the big finish. Along the way, blind Nora tells some magnificent tales to Stony and his soul mate, Lourdes. What unfolds is a chilling story about a small town conspiracy, evil, greed, and faith. Stony and Lourdes love each other with a gentle passion, but will that be enough to keep them together? How does Stony finally discover his true self? Who is the little boy who seems to know Stony better than he knows himself? What secrets does the Crown mansion hold?
This is good reading! The opening scenes are reminiscent of those in Straub's GHOST STORY (one of the greatest horror novels ever written, in my most humble opinion). Nora is an incredible character, and her fireside stories are enough to raise goosebumps on their own. The ending was quite a bit different than I anticipated although not surprising given Stony's nature. My question is: are we going to see more of Stony and the quirky "Steve", Mr. Clegg? Buy this novel now, and then haunt amazon.com and used book stores to get all those out-of-print/stock Clegg works!
