'The Writer' is a bit out of character for D.W. in my opinion, although not to imply that I am disappointed in it. Quite the opposite. I have been conditioned by his previous writings to be prepared for an all out frontal assault on the senses with an adrenaline rush that might be compared to driving in a NASCAR race, though I have never had that experience personally. What I got instead was a well thought out string of events that led up to an ending that was totally unexpected and left me satisfied, but still open for more. Character development was quite complete without getting so involved in such minuscule trivia as to make it boring. (I don't really care what color candles the character had on his/her first birthday cake).
It is proving hard for me to review this book without giving spoilers, but I will continue to the best of my ability. The author's descriptions of the locale made me feel as though I was there with the characters. I could feel the rain, enjoy the sights and almost taste the food as they did. It was as though I were a part of the plot instead of the reader. My role was to simply be a bystander and to observe what was happening as it happened. It was a role I gladly accepted more and more the deeper I became involved in the book. That night after I finished it, I dreamed about it, inserting myself into the plot, although never quite knowing why I was there.
If you are considering purchasing this book, by all means, do so. Hopefully, you will become as involved in it as I was and, upon completion, will have a sense of satisfaction of reading something that is truly worth reading, not just meant to pass the time. It will leave you thinking about the characters long after you have finished reading it.
I will continue to read anything that D. W. Ulsterman writes. I have never been disappointed by any of his writings, to include his political blogs and Facebook posts. Write On, D. W.!
Adele Plank is a college journalist invited to interview her all time favorite author. Now that's two awesome things for a book background. The combination was really good and it gave The Writer its personality. Adele's thirst to know what really happened to Decklan Stone's kept me intrigued all through out the novel. Her role as a journalist kept her in loop into this buried mystery about Decklan's wife.
It's a small island mystery.
When the mystery or crime is set in a small place, it doesn't only make things more interesting because everyone knows everyone but you also get to roam around the place as you read. I wouldn't say I got to know the island but I had a good round. Ulsterman brought me there and I met the oh-so nice and interesting people of the island. It made me interested to pick up the next book in the series!
I wouldn't say it's suspenseful but it was during its climax. The intriguing mystery really kept me reading this book. It had that amazing pull that made me just want to read it page after page. I read this in like two days and that's an achievement for me! I'm a slow reader and ending up finishing a book in a day or two is glorious moment when we're suppose to throw a party and be glad for another exciting read (or maybe that's just me).
Honestly I had my hunch. I was just trying to formulate the how and the why. All throughout my read, the question WHY hangs in the air. Perhaps I've read this mystery twist a couple of times and somehow I'm still not getting into it. It still surprises. It still catches me off guard. Not the 'who' but the 'why'.
There's an Epilogue.
I like epilogues! I like how they are usually told in a different way the story is told. In this case, the epilogue is Adele's article. It gives off a satisfying feel for the ending and at the same time a heartwarming happiness for those involved in the mystery.
OVERALL, The Writer is an intriguing mystery thriller that kept me reading page after page. Adele is a good main character, the people in the island are interesting, and the climax was very breathtakingly thrilling. The Writer is a good mystery read!
