The names are straight forward as names go, but it is remembering who is Dave or Davy ETC.
You have to keep reminding yourself who is who or else the story wont make sense, The main story is about a man who kidnaps a boy after killing his mother, He thinks he is rescuing his family and bringing them back together, including a dog he steals from a young girl.
I will not divulge anymore than that about the plot, but the ending was a surprise to me.
I highly recommend this book and would try this author again, The pace of the story was just about perfect, and with a twist at the end.
For all that, I enjoyed the book and would like to read more by this author.
The story evolves around a 7yr old boy who's family is wiped out in a freak car accident.Rescued by a lone backwoodsman who raises him as a son under very twisted circumstances,Dave grows into an adult longing for his "family" and a normal life.
The writing is taut and the plot relentless,the author even makes you "feel" for Dave as he goes about re-structuring his family. All in all an excellent read that keeps you on the edge of your seat.Look forward to reading more from this author soon.
Pyle also strayed from the stereotypical in his characterization, making the villain sympathetic. I wanted him captured before anyone (or anyone else) was hurt. There was no excuse for his actions, yet I couldn't help feeling compassion for him.
Pyle's writing style is entertaining and at times amusing as I wondered, "How did he come up with that line." One of my favorites was describing a mountain road as, "curvier than a Parkinson's patient's question mark." Another time one of the characters was risking an injury to her hand, "not thinking website design might be a little tricky with only a left paw and a mangled claw."
The story is action packed and never bogs down. A typical suspense novel slowly builds tension over the course of the story, peaking near the end. "Dismember" builds to a peak, then backs off and lets the tension build again as it takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotion.
**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.**
In the vein of Jack Ketchum but just not quite in the same league. Not far behind though.
Enjoyed this read and was not, as some were, disappointed by the ending. Sometimes happy endings just don't happen and felt this was an appropriate ending which could have the potential for a sequel but I'm not sure that a sequel was the intention of the author. However, I would like to read it if there is one !
