FIVE STARS!
Reviewed by Lorraine Carey for Readers Favorite
Herron is a master of character development. You can hear each voice clearly in this extremely moving account of a group who come-of-age during the turbulent 1960's. Some walk away with fame; a few never survive the haunting essence of this place.

The boys of Reichold Street each have story...
I was fascinated by this enthralling book. 

KIRKUS REVIEWS
...the characters are bold, the plot twists surprising, and the point - that we never fully know a person or his story - heartbreakingly clear. Skillfully written and emotionally charged.

One of the reasons that I enjoyed `Reichold Street' was its unpredictability. I wasn't able to 'get ahead' of the writer and anticipate events, so it played out like reality, complete with all life's bumps and bruises. There was no fairy tale or `cookie cutter' ending. I suppose it doesn't hurt that I grew up in a very similar town and approximate time frame as the main character. Seeing some of the same events through a different pair of eyes was an interesting choice of narrative. I think the writing was skillful and absorbing, not overly sentimental, but with just the right touch of nostalgia. The conversational exchanges were both realistic and entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed `Reichold Street' and would recommend it highly.

In his book titled Reichold Street, R. L. Herron skillfully depicts the lives lived along a seemingly typical U.S. suburban street. His descriptions of human relationships keeps the reader intrigued and wondering what the next chapter will bring. Even after the lives along the lane seem fully defined, Herron introduces yet another life event. Most everyone, having been a member of a family, can relate to these experiences. As families age and the children grow up, neighborhoods develop a history and personality of their own. Herron is able to portray this process in a unique and vibrant way that keeps the readers turning page after page in a desperate attempt to keep up with their curiosity about how it will all turnout.

This book functions wonderfully as a study in character analysis. Herron has seeded, watered, developed, and harvested a bushel of folks, some sweet and some sour but all vivid and true to their nature. In fact, the character study is enhanced when people are describe by different individuals in the same book. So that we get to see the significant people as multi-dimensional as each narrator describes them from their own point of view. The inhabitants of Reichold Street are complex, like real folk, seen in different peoples’ perspectives.

The relationships discussed in this book are sometimes positive, while others are decidedly negative. But almost all the relationships studied prove to be fairly inadequate at supporting and aiding their members when the vicissitudes of life turn very rough and damaging. It is near thematic here that superficial relationships fail when crises become acute. When our personal relationships fail us at the time we need them most, we pay a huge emotional price.

This was a very entertaining book. Mr. Herron's writing style reminds me a little of Stephen King's. It was interesting the way the story is written from every character's perspective and is a fast read. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to more from Ronald L. Herron.

Reichold Street is not the traditional type of book for me. Much to my surprise, I loved it. The characters come alive. Within a couple of chapters I was already caring about what would happen to these young men. The writing style is captivating. I highly recommend Reichold Street.

Review for Reichold Street by Ronald L. Herron (5 stars.)

Reichold Street is a themed anthology. The author has cleverly woven together individual character personas into a central plot. The collection of stories all revolve around Reichold Street and the common bond of the characters in the novel. The majority of the story takes place in the later part of the nineteen-sixties. Each character has a unique voice. They share the memories of the events happening during that time, not just on Reichold Street, but also in their school, their town, and their personal lives.

I was able to live each moment with Paul, Albert, Janice, Puz, the twins, and all the well-written characters interwoven throughout the novel. Herron choreographed the emotions and personalities of each character, allowing me to join in as one of the street's residents. Many times, authors like to direct us with their narration, but in Reichold Street, Herron gives us multiple perspectives, and lets us construct our own opinions. No one, and nothing, is what it seems at face value.

The biggest question for me, as I read deep into the novel was, how will the author pull all of the storylines together and end the book. He didn't disappoint me, and I felt the ending brought closure. Reichold Street deals with some tough issues, such as alcoholism, suicide, bullying, criminal activities, family dysfunction, and the horrors of fighting in the Vietnam War. In other words, the characters and the emotions of the novel are portrayed realistically. It was time well spent with Paul, Albert, Janice, and the rest of the residents on Reichold Street. I look forward to reading more of Ronald Herron's novels.

Brian MacLearn.

As Ron is a friend of mine I bought his book Reichold Street some time ago. I added it to a pile of books I planned on reading. As I have more books then I have time to read I recommended it to my husband. He finished it in a few days and raved about it. He said I should hurry up and finish the book I was in (yes I do get wrapped up in them to a fault) and read Ron's book. My husband said it was "excellent, wonderful, awe inspiring, and Ron is great at character development." This is coming from a man who reads James Patterson, John Grisham, and David Baldacci. I made sure to get ONE WAY STREET, and STREET LIGHT, as well as his latest BLOOD LAKE. We will be trading them back and forth. I'll write a more detailed review as I finish each of them.
