I am a huge horror fan and jumped at the chance to be apart of another Michael West blog tour. Michael West is hands down in my top three Horror writers. Michael West, Richard Matheson and Clive Barker are my top three favorites in no particular order because I just can not decide. Michael West's stories are not only amazingly creepy, scary stories they are also deeply woven intricate plots with well flushed out characters. Michael West is one of the best storytellers I have ever read. The Wide Game from start to finish had me on the edge of my seat. It never lagged, it was never slowed, it was just one twist and turn barreling to the end. I absolutely loved The Wide Game. I loved the details when the story flashes back to the 80s. This book was not just written it was crafted. It was smart, witty, funny and scary. Perfection all rolled in to one horror novel. I highly recommend this to everyone. But be warned it is not for the faint of heart and Thanks to Michael West I get creeped out driving by cornfields now. :)
This book slides right in to a 5 out of 5 for me. Excellent!!!!!
About Michael West: Michael West is the critically-acclaimed author of The Wide Game, Cinema of Shadows, Spook House, Skull Full of Kisses, and the Legacy of the Gods series. A graduate of Indiana University, with a degree in Telecommunications and Film Theory, West has written a multitude of short stories, articles, and reviews for various on-line and print publications. He lives and works in the Indianapolis area with his wife, their two children, their bird, Rodan, their turtle, Gamera, and their dog, King Seesar.
His children are convinced that spirits move through the woods near their home.
The Wide Game Book Synopsis: On the advice of his wife, Paul Rice is making plans to attend his 10th year High School reunion. Returning to his boyhood home of Harmony, Indiana, he finds that he is still haunted by memories of that time-memories of Deidra, his first love, and memories of the Wide Game. It was ten years ago that Paul and his friends watched their day of fun become a race for their lives, a fight for their very souls.
Now, as he meets the survivors of that day once more, Paul makes a chilling discovery: the incomprehensible forces that toyed with them have yet to finish playing their own game.
The Wide Game is one of the Harmony, Indiana horror novels from Michael West, which also include Cinema of Shadows and Spook House.
