Personally, I am MUCH more of a Fantasy/scifi reader myself, but I was already sent the book, so figured I would lose very little to try it out.
All i can say is one word to sum up the whole thing: WOW.
No, seriously, wow. Being an imaginative person, I was totally able to see the situation Stu was in, understand and feel his pain an anguish, and be immersed into the story rather quickly. I usually find non scifi too boring, and lose interest fast, but i just HAD to know what happened to Stu, and what the heck that shady character Waylon was up to.
Read this, it isn't a big read, but totally worth the time you put into the story.
Initially Garner wrote Writer's Block, only intending the first installment to be the only installment. Thankfully Stu's story was not set in stone with that first part, and Garner decided to continue and ultimately finish Stu's tale in the other four parts.
Garner has an easy way about his storytelling, one that draws you in and puts you right alongside the characters. Even when trouble happens for Stu, the author makes sure that the readers feel safe and confident in the process. I love Garner's writing style and with each new story he just keeps getting better and better. I love how Writer's Block ultimately ended as well, capping off a story that essentially ended up telling itself.
Well done, Hank. The tears were definitely coming to my eyes as the story wrapped up and I look forward to having this in paperback on my bookshelf.
Stewart (Stu for short) Remington is a writer who's lost his family to, possibly a car wreck, then his ability to continue to write. His life is in shambles, his thoughts are scattered. The only thing that keeps him sane is his pitbull Rolo, demanding his walk, food and water, and an occasional petting and a bone. It is Rolo who pulls Stu out of his funk, brings meaning to his life and turns loneliness into a friendship with a neighbor.
I can't divulge the rest of the story. It's very well written, holds you captive with purpose and brings tears of joy to an otherwise, another good book. You too will enjoy this book as much as I did. Pick it up, smile with each turn of a page and if I'm not mistaken, shed a tear at the end. Enjoy, I did!
This is a stand-alone book set in the unusual town of Weston, part of the larger mythos that Hank Garner is developing for the town’s history. It’s great entertainment, loaded with feeling. Read and enjoy.
Despite the magical premise, it's almost believable.
