I was raised on a diet of Michael Crichton, and there is a very recognizable framework to his pieces here, whether Kish means it or not: the odd, but not completely unrealistic, scenario; the team of experts, including one person who is, as the 1998 Godzilla put it, "the worm guy" (or in this case, girl), the flipping perspectives between each chapter, sometimes taking on a new character whose mind it can't wait to dip into. Meanwhile, the comparisons to Stephen King's works are immediately recognizable, particularly the decade-swapping "It", the mind-bending "Desperation", all wrapped up in the general folksy narration. I was almost surprised when the narrative never called me "constant reader". This is not to say that the story is cheap in its imitation--the best works arise from rewrites, perspective flips, and the straining of a sieve. Instead I can only say that these authors, and many others, serve the story well as tools to tell something suspenseful, interesting, and page-turning.
In the end I was entertained by the story, and see a very marked improvement over Kish's previous novel. The writing is more tight, if not a little loose in places, and the characters are full of life (for as long as they manage to survive). The ending, while not completely satisfying to my mind, is neither out of left field nor clearly broadcast.
Overall, and I apologize if I've droned on, a good whack for a sophomore effort, and I look forward to reading more from Mr. Kish. I can only see improvement.
I read this book in one sitting. The author grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept me entranced throughout.
I am an Arizona native and found myself picturing the landscape vividly. J.B. Kish's attention to detail put me in every scene and part of each characters unique personality.
I am not a fan of television or movies but I would love to see this on the big screen.
Looking forward to more from this author.
