LET'S TAKE A SURVEY! 20 aprile 2012
Di Jimb0 - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Truly enjoyed the adventures of Addison Kane -- which I read yesterday in one sitting. A great character with a story well told.

I enjoyed the book's free flowing dialogue and the trips through the diaries into the prideful southern past. The dream sequences bring together Past, Present, and Supernatural. And Legend. And Fact.

Only those with uniquely opened mind see the axe wielding ghost of local lore. But as the drama builds and then climaxes, a malevolent, misconceived, mulatto truth bares its glinting, keen edged teeth--evoking revulsion, revelation, and redemption. You will have to read the book to figure that one out!

There's even a dangerous, track crossing, small South romance. And a geometric methodology primer. Who could ask for more?

Is there some autobiography, or as Kosinski called it, "autofiction" going on here? The author's refined sense of history, currency, and reasoned opinion translate into a thinker's read. I hope to devour more pages of the adventures of Citizen Addison Kane. Can't wait for Addison's next project. Help the Boy!

A fun little fiction book full of neat historical fact 18 aprile 2012
Di jillyjill717 - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I really enjoy histories that revolve around a fictional character. I feel like I get my history lesson but it still tastes good. Sort of like a salad with ranch, this book covers a lot of really neat but obscure Georgian history while giving you a fun little romance/mystery book as dressing. Definitely worth a read, and by the end, surveying doesn't seem as boring as it looks when you see the guys out with their orange jackets and their yellow camera thingys. Okay, well, actually, the surveying part IS a little boring, but hey, we have angry dead slaves with axes, evil bankers and beautiful women. Those aren't boring at all.

Masterful & spellbinding. 25 agosto 2012
Di Jack Brandeux - Pubblicato su

Pop authors have ugly habits.
So often they are keen and quick to toss out gratuitous plot as audience incentive rather than swaddle them in a storyline that is vivid, engaging and progressive.

David Bradley is guilty of no such punches.

His works offer textured narrative replete with thoughtful characters and rolling dialogue that would turn any writing teams for any primetime programing deep green.
I am an immense fan of Mr. Bradley's and look forward, but couldn't attempt to anticipate, his next pen stroke.

The Story Was Really Very Good - However 3 1/2 stars 29 settembre 2013
Di megpattypan - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle
The Dead Hand of Sweeney County - I enjoyed the author's writing style and the detail he put in to portraying Southern history. I enjoyed the "ghost" aspect - even though I usually avoid paranormal stories. This was done very well.

The romance interest was intense yet done tastefully. The writing (or editing), although a few errors here and there, was structured nicely, especially where the Kindle is concerned - well done. Going from present to past (history) was very enjoyable.

The main characters were developed and memorable. Boy, girl, landlady, and a few others (brought in later), were delightful... Some of the characters could have been developed a bit more.

As you may have noticed, I said the story was very good. However, the novel as a whole? There were some issues that made this novel annoying at times; therefore distracting from my enjoyment of the story as a `whole'.

The surveying aspect was interesting at first, and then it became "filler stuff" that just wasn't needed to the degree that it was in the story. Overload!!! I did do some skimming.

The characters (and families) - so many!!! It might have been helpful to place a few "family trees" at the beginning of the novel (without betraying the ending). It was very complex and frustrating at times, even though the author did a fair job at trying to put `families' together for the reader to relate to, and try to keep track of.

The introduction of marijuana use by some of the characters seemed to take away some of their `credibility'. It didn't add to the story. It wasn't beneficial to the characters' development.

This book was a bit too technical for me....describing all sorts of things about surveying but after I skimmed past those parts the book was ok...but not a "I can't put it down" type of book for me.
