Although confusing at times, the author skillfully brings it all together throughout a plot that's reminiscent of a PG-rated Big Trouble. The only thing I'd want changed is to spend more time on a few main characters, rather than a little time on everyone. However, each character has his or her own voice and personality, and each contributes something to the storyline.
Overall, a fun, light read that I highly recommend.
The structure of Tangled Ties is unique in my experience. While there are chapters, the story is told in short character-based vignettes that slowly coalesce into a more unified narrative. What was really fun about the reading experience here is that I needed to participate in order to realize the "ties" in the book's title. Nothing is really handed out here on a platter. The reader is engaged directly in realizing and making sense of the action as it unfolds. This kind of participatory experience is rare in first novels, and I expect any future works by Kalen to continue to employ this stylistic device. I certainly hope so and will be watching for a second book.
As a friend of the author I want to thank him for sharing this gift of storytelling with us all.
