A very short novella about a quest for angels during the Dustbowl, a sort of John Steinbeck meets Ray Bradbury, as one reviewer put it. I don’t think I have read much else by this writer but perhaps I need to correct that.… (mais)

An intriguing gothic horror/mystery featuring pagan gods and fair folk haunting the woods. The prose does get a bit pretentious every so often, but the story was captivating enough that I didn't care. It was so captivating that I had to pull out my mythology books and look up Cernunnos.

This book is ultimately a story about grief and the different ways that people work through it.

In the Night Wood is just the kind of book I like to read. A story about a married couple who move to a new house. A house that the wife has inherited. A house with secrets and surrounded by an ancient oak forest. A forest that is so deep that you can get lost in it...

Now I had the pleasure of both listen to the audio version and reading the book. I think I preferred listening to the book which could be because John Banks did such an excellent job. As for the story itself. It's perfectly OK. However, I found myself wanting to like the story more than I did. Books like this one are actually the ones I find the hardest to review because there is nothing wrong with them more than I just can't seem to love the story. I wasn't annoyed with the characters, the death of their daughter is tragic and I felt for both Charles and Erin. I actually found the story within this story to be the most fascinating thing. A fairy tale with an unhappy ending.

One thing I want to say about the book is that it didn't bore me at least. It was a good book to listen to when I worked and that is a good sign. I kept on wanting to find out the truth about the forest. I would definitely recommend the book if you like modern gothic thrillers. I can see how the right reader will love this book. I just wish that the story had grabbed my attention more than it did.

I want to thank the publisher for providing me with an ecopy through NetGalley for an honest review!

Dale Bailey has been watching too many Sam Rami movies. What is kind of a good idea goes South when Bailey over indulges in his hatred for petty academia and big time college sports (his time in liberal arts employment must have been rewarding). The in joke just doesn't carry with the non-academic masses. The ever more preposterous goings on of the perpetually cannabis dazed Alex lose steam as we lose empathy with the lazy sucker's quickly rising body count. Bailey doesn't seem to know whether he wants to portray Alex as some sort of sad sack, a psychopath serial killer, or someone under demonic possession through no fault of their own.

The entire thing just doesn't want to hold together as Bailey also strains to tie petty college politics, with evil big time college sports, libido problems, and a horror story as a backdrop (or is it a foreground?). Strained metaphors don't inspire the writing either.

They say write what you know about and Bailey obviously is but your audience also has to have some interest in it to make it stick.

2.5 rounded up to 3.
