I enjoyed this book for the most part. I downloaded it during the free promotion and was sold on the synopsis. The writing was great, the narrative flowed really well. There's no disputing that this is a very talented writer. I could 'feel' the characters and empathised well with them.However, I was disappointed with the ending. I felt that there were lots of loose ends. There was no explanation for Connor's feelings. Why did he hold these friends responsible for what happened to him when he mur [...]
This book hooks you from the start! I loved that the ending was unpredictable and that the author did such a great job setting the tone of the story that I wouldn't read it before going to bedo spooky for me! It's a quick and easy read. Looking forward to the next book from this author.
I could not put this book down!! The story line drew me in and I had to know the ending. Heart pounding, adrenaline rushing, page turner. I will recommend to everyone.
This book never should have ended. I wanted more.
I'd give this closer to 2.5.I liked the writing, and the glimpses of Adam's day to day life with his family. The small scenes with him and his family were sweet and fun, and they feel pretty fleshed out.What would have made it even better was more background into what happened to Connor. Maybe I missed something, but (view spoiler)[I feel like we don't learn who Connor's murderer was? Adam tells us someone was tried and convicted, but I feel like Adam, Nick, and Connor got tangled up in some par [...]
Three boys, Adam, Nick, and Connor always played hide and seek in the old cemetery at night in Broken Tree Minnesota. A scream came from the cemetery and two of the boys ran. They found Connor's body in the old cemetery the next day. He was brute tally murder. This would changes the life's of Adam and Nick forever. The next day the Bishop family left Broken Tree in a hurry. It was 25 years later and Adam Bishop and his wife and son were returning to Broken Tree. Adam was going to work for a smal [...]
If you enjoy well-written ghost stories, you really can’t go wrong with Shadows Remain, by Tim McWhorter. This haunting novella may remind you of some of the adventures you took as a kid, but in this case, things definitely take a turn for the worse.It starts off with some young boys playing in a cemetery late at night. Now I don’t condone kids sneaking out of the house, especially at night to play in a cemetery, but I can’t say I never played a little Tom and Huck with my friends when eve [...]
I was just not as enamored with the book as the other reviewers. I really wanted to give it 2.5 stars. It was definitely well written and I liked the short length, but something about it felt undone. I didn't feel like I really fully understood the crime; the story mentions an arrest but somehow I felt like it wasn't the real story so I kept expecting an alternate answer - but I didn't get one. Also I didn't really understand the ending - why would everyone be able to communicate? Shouldn't ther [...]
I wish we could do half stars as I would have rated this a 3.5. It was a good story the writing was well done. I could see the family in my head clearly going through the daily things. What I craved however was more detail to the main story. What was the background to the cometary to start with. Clearly it seemed that there was some more to Connor and what happened. I wanted to see more of Nick with Adam, with Connor, just more. There was so much potential to expand this story and I would have l [...]
I enjoyed reading this book. The characters feel like real people. The interactions between the family is sweet. I would have liked more detail of what happened to Connor or what happened between the three boys after the final elementary scene. Nick was an interesting character and I wish he was in the story more.I am not generally a fan of these kind of endings. I always root for happy endings, but I liked the last scene with Ben and his son. It gave the sense of peace at the end that I really [...]
SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!Anyway, this was ok. Lots of potential but ultimately I was disappointed. First off, I know this was published by an indie house but that is not an excuse for the abundant grammatical and typographical errors. The main reason for my disappointment was never finding out exactly what happened to Connor. Did the cemetery murder him? Was it the dude who was convicted? I'm going with the cemetery and that's what I wanted the story to be about, not the main character and his rookie m [...]
Cool novella-length ghost story that moves back and forth between past and present, from kids playing hide and seek in a cemetery, to the adult returning to his home town where his dead friend haunts the cemetery. Good character development, good tension, and the ghost sections where he uses his powers are powerful. This would make a good movie.
This is one of those short story chapter book. I don't have any insight on this novel at all. Hey try it you never know you might like it.
