Big

Rated 4.77/5 based on 14 reviews
A bigfoot is wounded by a shotgun blast. It exacts revenge, then tries to escape. It loses too much blood and collapses in deep woods, where it is found by high school senior Marcy Dillon. Marcy befriends it and decides to help it elude a posse gathered to capture or kill it. What results is a pulse-pounding, white-knuckle chase onto a deadly mountain, where both their lives hang in the balance. More

Review by: Donald Bassett on Dec. 26, 2012 :
I have just finished reading BIG by Lloyd Pye I found a good read very hard to put down until the end.I have been interested in Bigfoot for about 30 years and this is the first book that I think is the most logical. I recomend it to anyone who has an interest in this subject.

Damn, this was as good a book as I have read about Bigfoot and boy have I read a lot of them. Lloyd did a great job on this, it could not have been better. Keep them coming if you write any more. Darrell Dawson, Madison, NE BFRO

I really enjoyed this story and read the entire book within 48 hours of purchase. The character development is very good, but what I liked most was the completely different approach/perspective to a BigFoot story. I am a new Pye fan, having only recently discovered his works...now I'm hooked and want more. I recommend BIG to everyone.

Review by: Michael Daw on Feb. 07, 2012 :
I enjoyed this book - perhaps not as much as other reviewers! - but it was an exciting page-turner and just as good, if not better, than many in a similar genre. Other reviewers are right that the characters are very real and well-rounded. So what stopped me giving four or five stars? Well, at points I felt the story went 'off the boil', for example when Marcy had to stop and help her mum get dinner ready - it seemed like the urgency was lost - I kept thinking about Big up there in the woods but Marcy seemed to have forgotten all about him!

The other minor grumble where the story could have been improved was the pervading acceptance on the part of all the characters of the self-evident existence of bigfoots (bigfeet?!). Now, I retain an open mind about these things but I think the story would have been strengthened if there was a character who was similarly sceptical (along with the orthodox view), which would have given me a way in to suspend this scepticism.

But overall, a good read with only a very few typos (unfortunately all too present in so many e-books).

Lloyd Pye writes in the genre of Michael Crichton, and every bit as well. Both bring in lots of facts, and both weave page turning action into their stories well. But I have to say that Pye has a better feel for real people than Crichton. As much as I've enjoyed Crchton's books, he always makes his characters "tops in their field" or some kind amazing and unreal people. Pye catches a real feel for Americana. As to Bigfoot/Sasquatch, Pye knows as much as anyone about them, and he brings that into the story seamlessly and entertainingly. I had a really enjoyable time reading this story. I'd give it at least 4 stars out of 5. I look forward to his next book, and I hope it isn't long in coming.

Review by: Michel Boulet on Feb. 03, 2012 :
I loved this book. The story is awesome and the characters very well defined. You feel like watching a movie while reading it. Lots of action but with some good introspection as well. The depiction of "Big", the bigfoot is not that of a creepy monster. It is showed as a different kind of human who lives a different kind of life.
All bigfooters will enjoy it for sure.

This seems to be the only ebook like this in the entire world. Anyone interested in the subject of Bigfoot definitely must read this. The way Mr. Pye ties Bigfoot facts into his story is very interesting, and with surprises waiting around every page, it makes for a very riveting story!

I used to be more into non-fiction books, but all that's changed since I recently got to read mr Pye's latest novel,BIG.The book is wildly entertaining, with an amazing storyline which draws the reader in deep,right from the first page.Scenes,events,people(and BIG)are described with an uncanny realism, that had me believing I was engrossed in a movie and not a book.The authors deep familiarity with the "Bigfoot" legend has allowed him to bring-to-life the character 'BIG',with such inciteful and sensitive storytelling,that I accepted it's 'existence' on the page without question, at all times.A wonderful,charming and thought-provoking book.

Review by: Crystal Jiles on Jan. 18, 2012 :
Not only does this book, give possible insight into the mind of a Bigfoot, it also provides such a riveting story line that will appeal to a broad spectrum of people. It certainly isn't your typical "bigfoot story" where you are aware throughout the story that it was strictly written for fantasy. This book however, will soften even the hardest skeptic to the idea that this could very well happen. Mr. Pye has a definite gift of story telling that will captivate and well as educate. Can't wait for the next books Mr. Pye has to offer in the future.

Review by: Allen Gooch on Jan. 14, 2012 :
This book is a rare treat that will have everyone that picks it up glued in their seat for the next page. This book can't be put down until it is finished, it is almost like a good drug. This book makes you feel good and sad all over and over again. Sometimes you are almost afraid to read the next paragraph but you have to keep going. Keeping dry eyes is often a challenge. I sent a gift copy to my young nephews who are addicted to video games, but the older one will read. I expect them to call me in a day or two to discuss what they just read and could not stop reading. I highly recommend this book to old and young alike. Great job Mr. Pye

Can't tell you how much I enjoyed this story. So much so that I read it to my kids as well, and as we got closer to the end they did not want me to stop.

Anyone who has even a passing interest in bigfoot or hominoids in general HAS to read this. Even someone who doesn't share this interest won't be able resist getting hooked on the story line!
