This book accomplishes what so many don't and when I say "weaves the story" I really mean it. He tells the story through individual characters eyes, going back and forth on different dates and locations; all while providing a descriptive that is so in depth, that you end up with a beautifully written tapestry. You can see and feel what he writes and he has written an amazing story.
The epilogue felt a little forced compared to the rest of the book; but even with that I give it 5 stars.
This novel is a throwback in several respects and, in fact, resembles 1970s fiction, thus matching the era of the story. The book is thick, around 600 pages, and doesn't have a lot of white on its pages. The narration isn't quite omniscient, but there is quite a lot of head hopping from one character's point of view to another. I was a bit put off by that initially, mainly because I'm no longer used to reading that style. The dialogue also threw me at first. All of it sounds realistic, but perhaps a bit too much so. Many of today's novels limit dialogue to only that which advances the plot. The characters in this story sometimes talk for the sake of talking, just as we all do.
While many readers will enjoy author Chris Pinto's story, what I like most is his literary-quality descriptiveness. I was pulled into each scene, forgetting my own surroundings as I wandered from one of his haunted locales to the next.
Can't wait to see what Mr. Pinto offers up next!
