THE MISSING BOATMAN has tongue-in-cheek humor, satire, life and death issues, a super cast of well-drawn characters, oh and - blood, guts, gore and some very creative rank cursing.
It definitely could have used a healthy dose of proofreading and I usually warn readers against such books. But this story is good enough that you'll want to overlook these mistakes. Note to author, though: get this novel proofread and fixed.
NOTE: SPOILER AHEAD:
If you liked the movies Death Takes a Holiday (Amazon.com Exclusive) or Meet Joe Black, I think you'll enjoy the premise behind THE MISSING BOATMAN.
Like, who is "H2"?? I dislike feeling dumb while reading a book, and I feel that some of the characters did not have their... roles... explained well enough for me (Hence the four stars).
This *is* a fast paced book, and like all good books, I found myself thinking both about the book in general, and about certain characters at times when not reading the book. This to me is a sign of a good book. I never found myself wishing the book was over soon, nor did it feel like 'work' to read it. I simply hope in future works, the author does a bit better job of explaining certain characters a bit better.
This is a well thought out story. So much going on and the opportunity is there for Keith to take anyone of the characters in this novel and create separate stories for each. I will continue to look for all and anything Keith writes in the future as I believe that he is the most talented writer today. The future is very bright for the reader of fiction as long as Keith keeps writing.
The Missing Boatman is a very very clever take on a number of themes that have been done before but not in this way.
It's hard to go into detail without creating spoilers so I'll just say read it, you won't be disappointed.
"Boatman" introduces us to some immediately repulsing (and simultaneously compelling) characters who's full nature and purpose become hopelessly intertwined with human counterparts in what becomes a race to a climactic finish. The quintessential page-turner, "Boatman" hooks you quickly and never lets go.
This guy has real talent. Read this first, then check out his book "Mountain Man" for your new favorite entry in the zombie genre.
More horror, Keith!! MOAR!!!!!!!! :)
There's a lot of good books out there, and I cannot justify wasting my time reading a bad book.
