Some of the reviewers wished for this to be turned into a novel. Not me. It was a very intense short story. Very emotional for me - from longing for a bowl of chowder to annoyance, horror, frustration, and, finally, glee. It's perfect just the way it is.
I don't know how to review this one without spoilers, and I'd hate to ruin it for someone who hasn't read it yet. I'm just going to say that this is another winner from Mr. Graham. My cynicism says 'improbable' but my heart says 'nothing is impossible'.
A guy wakes up completely alone, in the dark, doesn't know where he is or how he got here. No food or water and only the clothes on his back. Nothing looks even remotely familiar. No telephone poles or houses, etc. And so it begins.
Glynn James first posted this as a free e-book, one chapter at a time, on another site. I discovered it when he had about half of it up and I was immediately addicted to it. It has ghosts, zombies, creepy settings (not necessarily on Earth), a truly evil villain, more mysteries than you can shake a stick at, and, my personal favorite, Dogthing! I love, love, love this story! I immediately bought the whole book when it came up for sale even though I could keep reading it for free online. 5 STARS
Hard book for me to review. I absolutely LOVED the tie-ins to the Corridor and Glynn's writing style is so comfortable, I fell right into the story. The bizarre, unexplainable things Reg has witnessed in his lifetime come through loud and clear. The only downside for me was that I couldn't help but feel sorry for the poor guy. I kept wishing for his life to take an upswing, not just in his finances, but for him to be a happy person. But, perhaps that's a personal failing of mine, and not anything to do with the story.
This is a BIG book. I didn't realize how big when I started it. I quickly became resentful of interruptions. Doomsday, end of world stuff. The paranormal element is what hooked me, but the intrigue and action kept me riveted. As soon as I'm finished posting this, II'm going to look for more books by Melissa Conway!
A little danger, a little romance, and lots of mystery. I enjoyed the heck out of this book. I didn't figure out the 'who dunnit' until the author was ready. I love when that happens! The peek inside the newsroom was really fun, too. The characters were really well done and completely believable. I will absolutely be looking for more of Stacy Juba's work.
Loved this!!! Darcy is a delight. The two prequels have more than roped me in--I can't wait for the novel to come out! I don't want to add any spoilers, but I sure hope there's a good dental plan in Brogan's future ;-))
Truly, truly looking forward to 'A Head For Assassination' by Gayle Ramage--and anything else she writes.
