    Castle Lake by Thomas Ryerson is a story that covers 70 years of Murdock family and their property around Castle Lake I jumped right into the book with out reading other reviews or a synopsis of the story Having read a few of his other books, I came in expecting to find something with a science fiction twist or a futuristic society However, I found myself somewhere on the east coast of North America in 1821 The story develops at a good pace and nothing seems out of place for the time The story centers around two families The Murdocks and Ficks who own the property surrounding the lake Things begin well enough for the new neighbors, but quickly things erode into tragedy and well, black magic I didn t see that coming The characters in the story are all very real and well developed The likeable characters are easily likeable and their actions are very human The story moves at a good pace and the book can be completed in a sitting or two I have read a few of Ryerson s books and they all are worth the read Castle Lake, like his other books, provides a nice bit of escapism His books are the perfect break in the piles of non fiction I usually read he has become my go to guy for fiction If you are looking for something to read this weekend or for a day at the beach, I recommend Castle Lake or another of Ryerson s books I haven t been disappointed in any of his books.

    Review as posted on .comFirst off, I must get something off my chest Sometimes, reviewers drive me nuts I only thought blowhards were reserved for Goodreads..Guess not Here is a thing, before you can review the book, YOU HAVE TO READ IT Had John Samson have read the book, he would have seen that his review was ignorant, uninformed and way off base, and he probably would not have put his name to that ridiculous review I can t go into why his review was so way off base because then I would be heading into spoilerland I really hope that people don t use that review to decide whether or not to get this book because you would be missing a great book for someone to have a look at me moment.Now onto my review, I have been trying to get my hands on this book for a while and was finally able to This book was AWESOME I ended up reading it in 3 hours because I just could not, figuratively I purchased the kindle version , put it down The book took off running from page 1 and just kept on going Further, the book went in a twist that I just didn t see coming and normally I am pretty good at figuring these things out The only thing that would have made this book better would have been to read it when it was dark out with a fire going in the fireplace and a glass of wine at my side

    Well, it started off not bad Then the not slowly faded by the second half I like the premise, but the writing just seemed to get worse as the book went on I m wondering if he got halfway through and realized that he was going to make the page count he guaranteed his publishers Either that, or he really wanted it to be turned into a movie, so he wrote everything as stage directions Seriously Don t know how to make coffee Learn by reading this book, because I am not exaggerating it s like this I have some really important news said James Wonderful, said Mary, But first, let s have coffee Mary went to the pantry She reached her hand out and put her hand on the pantry door handle She turned the handle She placed her hand on the handle to open the pantry door The door opened with her hand s pressure She looked up at the top shelf, where there was a tin of coffee She removed her hand from the door handle and stretched it toward the coffee tin She lifted the coffee tin off of the shelf with her hand She walked the tin over to the counter and set it down, then returned to the pantry to shut the door She returned to the coffee tin, and put her hand on the lid She twisted the lid until it came loose, then set down the lid She opened the drawer to retrieve a spoon She closed the drawer. ad nauseam like that until the coffee is finished being made Then someone will inevitably want tea instead You see where this is going Keep in mind that none of this ads anything to the story, or even the atmosphere There is no insight snuck in there, nor any beautiful use of language And the only useful part of the story is the really important news that you ll get to pages later view spoiler Then there is the series of unfortunate events that happens to our second protagonist The girl is dragged along the bottom side of a horse at full gallop for who knows how long, her head repeatedly hitting the ground, and not only is she alive, but remains conscious for the entire ride and ends up without even having concussions In good enough shape to outwit and outrun a possessed priest with a scythe Mkay The whole priest incident, and the Colonel incident to follow read like a B horror movie Which was really disappointing, as I was expecting a creepy, psychological ghost story, not on that ended with every cheap horror film cliche hide spoiler

    I enjoyed this book The characters were interesting and the storyline was different The dialogue was choppy but it helped to define the time period and the characters I would call it of a deep read and less of a fun read It held my attention and I found myself thinking about it even after I finished it In my eyes that makes if a winner.

    An easy read Interesting plot The story in the past was very good Then, it moved to the present and it was a bit confusing, at first, what generation and relationship the present day characters had to the past one Yes, it was the same family, but for some reason, I didn t realize the old grandpa was the accused of the past history in the book.

    I really enjoyed this story The love of the family and the coming together to ensure the survival of the one that needed protection was endearing A good quick read that is best savored on a dark and stormy night.

Just after I was born in 1964, my mother incorrectly wrote my name on the birth record as Thomas Author My father caught the error, and I was named Thomas Arthur after my grandfather I was a bright eyed blonde haired youngster, and I always had a vivid imagination Once I started school in 1969, this vivid imagination handicapped me in an organized class I was always being distracted by everyth
