    1 thought on “Sparkle”

    1. Death is in the news every day, and if people stop to give it a second thought they most likely think of the void left in the lives of the living, the emotional mess it creates when someone dies or is killed. Very few people, however, think about the nuts and bolts of death–the literal mess it makes.Brothers Joe and Eddie Jones have not only thought about it, they’ve made it their business. Literally. Sparkle Cleaners, their Seattle-based janitorial service, specializes in crime scene cleanu [...]

    2. SPARKLE was an interesting mix of original ideas and melodramatic clichés. This is not necessarily bad. Every story has its sappy moments and authors stand out by the way they use those and Rudy Yuly does quite a good job at keeping his sappy moments under control. The proper amount of starts here would be 3.5, but 4 sounds also good.The novel is about brothers running a crime scene cleaning business, yet one brother is more interesting than the other. Eddie is autistic and has a flabergasting [...]

    3. I was surprised at how much I liked this book. There is a bit of a supernatural element to Eddie and his cleaning job which I usually steer away from. This book, however, portrayed his contact with stuck souls as a minor detail in a much larger story. I grew to care for Joe and Eddie in a way I didn't expect. I found myself becoming protective of the strange brothers and rooting for them until the very end.

    4. Sometimes I feel so concerned for a character in a book that I feel sick when their well-being is in question. My stomach was in knots for Eddie Jones for half of this book. The writing, while not perfect, was enjoyable and flowed well. The characters in general made this book better than what I expected from reading the blurb.

    5. Shiny, maybeSparkle is an unusual story, to say the least. Was it enjoyable? Yes. Was it serious? Yes. Was it a go quirky? Yes. Do I recommend it? Yes. Have fun and shake your head now and then.

    6. I enjoyed Sparkle. The brothers being crime scene cleaners made for an unusual perspective and I thought it worked well. I liked the way the brothers' relationship was developed and I liked Eddie Jones a lot. The only real issue I had with the book (Kindle edition) was that the female cop was often referred to as both a he and a she within the same paragraph or sentence. This started off being a bit confusing, needing to re-read the paragraphs, but as the book went on it became expected whenever [...]

    7. I enjoyed this story very much. One thing the author accomplished which I really liked was the idea that neither brother was being cared for by the other in a bigger way. The world view was that Joe was caring for and burdened by his developmentally disabled brother, Eddie. However in Eddie's mind he was equally responsible for the care and burden of Joe. This was a nice twist and made me think about the roles of being cared for and caring for another.I also enjoyed discovering the identity of t [...]

    8. This is written by a friend of mine and it's a murder mystery/ thriller set in Seattle. Our book group read it and liked it quite a bit. Proud of my pal Rudy!!
