I was not entirely sure of what to think of Matt, the main character of the story. At first I thought he was just a rude, bitter, and evil tempered alcoholic, but the further I read into the story the more I found myself changing those thoughts about Matt. I began to sort of form a bond with him, but did not want to get in too deep because the Author has a way of misleading his readers into thinking one thing and then something totally bizarre happens to change your thoughts yet again. I was on my toes I think from beginning to end; from heart pounding moments to bittersweet endings.
The characters were very well developed. And the storyline so vivid and surreal, it made you feel as though you were there. I especially loved how the story unfolded gradually, making me want to guess what would happen next but rarely getting it right. It made me want to read more as I turned each page. There was absolutely nothing predictable about this story. That is what I loved the most about this book. I think I literally gasped several times while reading.
I am so glad that I decided to read the book. And if you want to experience a very different type of book and you want every element of every genre, then this book is definitely one for you to read. You won't be sorry. I look forward to reading more Chris Ward and I have to thank him for introducing me to his work.
I enjoyed reading this book. The title of the book tells you alot about the book even before opening it to the first page. The title also shows you what to expect from the book as well. By that I mean this:Everything you think you by reading this book will not prepare you for how it ends. This book will rock you to the core with stunning revelations about several characters. This quote best suits the book completely:`I feel like the man who built the world and then, in a moment of madness, tore it all apart again.' I think this quote sums up the whole book nicely. I will continue reading books by this author in the future.
And then he gets the phone call. His sister has died and he must return to his childhood home and confront whatever awaits him there.
This is a gripping story. The plot is convoluted and so surreal that it is not easy to tell how much is happening in real life and how much in the tortured mind of Michael Cassidy. Certainly some of the people of Tamerton are not what they appear to be. There is a feeling of undefined menace throughout which keeps the reader in thrall.
Mr Ward is a superb writer, his novels are well-structured, with well-developed (if not always likeable) characters and excellent pacing. This novel is no exception. I was never sure I properly understood what was going on but this ambiguity kept the tension high and I became more and more eager to find out what had really happened in Tamerton all those years ago.
Do we find out? I'm not telling you. You don't want to know. Believe me.
