    1 thought on “Siding Star”

    1. It makes me feel uncomfortable to be critical about writing, with no mitigation, but this is possibly the most poorly written book I have ever read. It was selected by someone in my book group, so I read it honour bound, but that is the only thing that got me through it. The prose is astonishingly wooden and simplistic. It makes Dan Brown look like a virtuoso wordsmith. The characters themselves are two dimensional projections of a world view of stereotypes who behave in entirely unconvincing wa [...]

    2. A very fun thriller, about the rise of a dark evil, and the ordinary people who come against it. Part Dan Brown, part CS Lewis, and very well written. The characters are all very real, and likable (well, at least the 'good guys' are). None is made out to have some kind of extraordinary skill or power, which I enjoyed. I also liked the fact that they were ADULTS. No teen angst here. Just real people who react in real ways. The story moves along at a clipping pace - I definitely didn't want to put [...]

    3. I won this book in a giveaway a few months back but hadn't gotten to it until now. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what to think of it. It feels a bit like two different books at times. One book that could have ended about halfway through, and then another book that took elements of the story and kept them going. At times I felt like the writing was a little bogged down by an abundance of details, but it didn't happen so often that I was overly bothered about it. For the most part the story [...]

    4. I found this book fascinating. At first I was discouraged by the lack of character development. It reminded me all too much of the good person/bad person dichotomy of the "Left Behind" series. But the development of the themes of damnation, redemption, and salvation were fascinating. It's often difficult to express an unusual Christian view of these themes without getting tied up in the baggage of ages of discussion. I'm looking forward to the next novel, as I think this novelist's mastery of ch [...]

    5. I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to read this book. It was such a wonderful read. It even made speak to myself out loud at the end, "OHI didn't want that to happen but I understand why it did." If good reads would have made it possible I would have rated this book 4.5 stars instead of just 4. It was an excellent story and again I am thankful that I got to read it.

    6. Supernatural thriller about a demon (or something) released via black magic for a cartel which uses it to also create a star to destroy the earthI think. I grew impatient with the premise and didn't read closely enough to find out.

    7. My mother would have called this a theological thriller, a genre in which Charles Williams was a master. While Christopher Bryan is not a match for Williams, I am thankful that he has given us a story in which I could glimpse something of God's mercy.
