The Rainbow Man Audiobook – Unabridged
Top Customer Reviews
This book was a very easy and quick read for me. It was really easy to get in to and was a book that once you started to read you were wanting to not stop until you could finish it. I just loved the way things unrolled, but there was still more than enough questions in your mind that you just had to read more. Every time I thought I may have the answer I was quickly proven wrong as I read on. The plot was one to suck you in from page one all the way to the ending page. It was quick moving, but had lots of details to make it a great book! The characters were also some of my all time favorites I think. They were easy to relate to, fun to read about, and just all around very likable characters. I found myself feeling for Daniel as he tried to get his Mom and friends to see John for what he was, which Daniel may not have known right away what that was, but was determined to find out. His determination is what made him a great friend. I also had to feel bad for him as he watched their group of three friends turn to different dynamics as Jill and Greg started looking at each other in a "more than friends" way. I also must say that I never saw in a million years the conclusion coming. I was going in a way different direction with my thinking and when the truth had light shed upon it I went, "Holy Cow! No Way!" It was wonderful to read a book that held my attention from start to end and that was able to completely surprise me when things came to light at the end. Amazing read!
Description: When fifteen year old Daniel finds a seemingly lifeless body on the shore of his island home, he feels that something is not right with the man John Dee (as the locals name him since he does not remember who he is). When the entire town appears to side with this newcomer and Daniel is treated as an acting-out teenager, things get a little sticky. Daniel decides it’s up to him save the town’s folk from this stranger - a man who is not as he appears to be.
With elements of horror and a mythological ending that’s a great surprise, this story will have readers sitting on the edge of their chair until the conclusion.
Thoughts: This is a terrific slowly escalating thriller that readers who love scary books will devour. I know I did. And it’s a perfect read to take in on one sitting. At 162 pages, for some readers it will only take a few hours. It’s a small and thin soft bound book with a cover that I think is exceptional and represents the story very well; which will also increase its appeal to younger readers. I would say that the author knows his craft, creating this “clean” literary thriller that will be just as great for teens as for adults.
It has a great setting that the reader will love – an island somewhere in the UK. It’s a small coastal town that helps create a feeling of being stranded, which is a key element in the story for Daniel as he is the only person to believe that the rainbow man is not who he leads everyone to believe.
Recommended for lovers of horror and books with paranormal or mythological twists. Also recommended to audio book listeners since it’s just as great of a book in its audio version, with its UK accented reader. Highly recommended at 4 stars.
