I drove home to a cold dinner, and soon a shoulder that was just as cold. She was on to me, and my secret rendezvous with Mr. Giglio's mind. Needless to say, she took the book and read it through, taking her time...and days...to finish. Meanwhile, she would drop hints to the plot. I could only hide the anticipation to finish the story behind a half lit smile. When she finished, I took every opportunity to finish the words before me. At the end, I was left satisfied and awestruck at the genius before me. My anticipation for Mr. Giglio's next book is akin only to Hannibal's hunger for nice temporal lobe.
Well done Mr. Giglio. I look forward to your next masterpiece.
Stealing Night brings us back to the fictional town of Sunfall, Nebraska. This is not a sequel to Sunfall Manor (which is brilliant, buy it, right now), but simply another swift peek into the life of one man in a dying town. What seems to be the central “plot point” in the story is really nothing more than another wrinkle in Jack’s already tortuous life.
There’s plot here—plenty of that—but Giglio has done much more than hammer out a sequence of events: in Stealing Night, one gets the sense the author took his hands off the wheel and let his characters have their way. Which is why this story is so good. It does not feel structured. You want things to happen, you think things should happen…maybe they do and maybe they don’t. What does happen in these pages is an honest and heart-wrenching story of struggle, loss, maybe even a bit of redemption.
Peter Giglio, so far as I can see, has steered several miles clear of self type-casting. His novels are diverse, even those set in the same town.
I hope to see more stories set in Sunfall. Sunfall, Nebraska may well be Giglio’s Castle Rock, Maine. One can only hope.
It follows after the novella Sunfall Manor and though it is not necessary to read them consecutively, I highly recommend it. And not just because reading them that way appeases my OCD, ahem, but mostly because one of my favorite points Stealing Night was the quick line or two nod to Sunfall Manor.
Speaking of Sunfall, the town itself is so easy to relate to. Sunfall, Nebraska is Anysmalltown, USA. I've been there, you've been there, and most of us have lived there at one time or another.
The character of Jack, in some ways, was reminiscent to me of Gaiman's Shadow. A mostly good man, caught in a bad situation and doing his best with what he has. I really like Jack.
I have compared Peter Giglio's style to that of Charlie Huston. This was a compliment and he received it as so. I maintain this sentiment. Though, do not think that he does not have a style all his own. He does and you'll love it.
The novel is a little dark, a little gritty and whole lot of wonderful. In the end, it is a novel of hope.
You should read it; we could all you a little more hope in our lives.
A well drawn cast of characters pulls the reader into the story and the plot's various -- and surprising -- twists will keep him/her guessing until the last page is turned. Yes, this book was a very pleasant surprise and I look forward to reading more of Mr. Giglio's work.
