It's a small part of the plot but it certainly adds realism and emotional depth. This book was set in Wisconsin which suits the main character's extra cheesy gosh, I just crack myself up conversations he has with his wife throughout the entire book. I didn't notice any spelling or grammatical errors that doesn't mean they weren't there, they just didn't jump out at me. I was one 'how is that possible' away from being done, not just with the book, the series. From the author of The Temple of the Blind. The ending was not at all what I expected, but the book as a whole Loved loved loved it! If for any reason your order is not available to ship, you will not be charged.
That is absolutely impossible and I needed to reply. Harmon is a master at describing the indescribable, creating tension, and an overall mood of mystery in a Mysterious, Multidimensional Quest When Eric awakes from a disturbing dream, he has a nearly irresistible urge to go somewhere, anywhere. I realize there's a sequel that I likely won't purchase but you know, closure and such. Maybe it's more of a spiritual journey. I never liked that a story had to do this or that. To view it, I'll admit: This book is entertaining. What did you love best about Rushed? It got sort of repetitive.
I look forward to the next in the series. I was also waiting to find out what was in the last stall in the barn, but we never get to find out. Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to Earth long ago. It probably would have been better if there was a better narrator. The story draws you in as if you were having the dream.
I was hooked at the beginning but nearly stopped reading in the middle for that reason. And it is a place where several travelers are abducted by Collie Entragian, the maniacal police officer of Desperation. I absolutely loved how strange it was. A lot of other reviewers have complained about the cell phone calls between the main character and his wife, but I found them charming. At first I was reluctant to get this book despite it being free. Entire lifetimes are experienced in a single day, with only one Coke to drink! This book is by no means one that will keep you awake at night with things that go bump, but, it does let your imagination run wild with the description of the creatures Eric comes across in his day of travel.
Literally from the first page you are swept into the pages of this story. No need to repeat it up until the very last page of the book. Almost immediately, he discovers something horrifyingly amiss with the building and is hurled into a life-or-death race against the clock to save everyone from an ancient, slumbering evil. Dear God, where to begin. However, it should have been set in Maine seeing as how the author makes several cringe-worthy attempts at recreate scenes from a Stephen King novel. This not necessarily a 'scary' story, I just found the imagery of the animals weird and disturbing, but that is partly due to my imagination.
It is the most shockingly amateurish and boring thing I ever read. The story draws you in as if you were having the dream. Eric seemed to be constantly swearing or cursing. Then, just a very few short pages of the climax. Loved Tessa and I hoped she'd be back. Kept me interested, and wondering what was happening. The book reads like a fragmented nightmare not an insult.
Hate to bash another author but, I have to say, it made me feel real good about my own book. Tempered with humor, Eric's journey becomes a multidimensional quest filled with bizarre creatures and danger at every turn. Additionally, it has some weird religious undertones that really don't connect with the rest of the story. Eric can't remember the recurring dream that keeps waking him in the middle of the night with an overwhelming urge to leave, yet he spends each day feeling as if he desperately needs to be somewhere. They obviously love each other and trust each other and while they have loving conversations, its not over the top. Overall a great fun horror read.
You'd get wasted in a hurry and likely have alcohol poisoning if you read the book in one sitting. I just know that I will not be reading another book by Brian Harmon again. Along the way, he'll have to deal with strange monsters, a murderous cowboy, and a curiously intimidating man in a pink shirt. Even cooler is that Eric is able to take pics with his phone and send them as proof. When I was in school, I just made something up and I don't think any teacher ever marked it wrong.
