This book contains a whole lot of crazy. This book is being compared to be Stephen King-like Anyway, obviously this book was not to my taste. Comments Donna Fisher says: She works as a Legal Counsel, and also has a Criminology degree. After pages I still didn’t care about any of the characters.
The sad answer is, not much. It’s clever, almost humorous without the jokes, and completely in sync with the spirit of Niceville. And, the novel only left a couple of small threads hanging, but I’m sure they will be addressed in the second novel of the series No trivia or quizzes yet. This book was just the right amount of eerie, freaky, chilling, spooky, and completely entertaining–these are the types of books I most enjoy By nature I am a reader, not a writer, and I like it that way. Don’t have time for a complete review wifi-squatting here but jo and, hopefully, you might agree:
It’s very difficult not to lose track of who’s who and how they relate to each other. He displays his mastery at getting into his plot as he morphs his writing style from the dramatic pace noceville sound of a book like Deadly Force to the slow-moving sleepiness of a Southern world steeped in history and small-town attitudes, where everyone knows everything about everyone.

Review of Niceville by Carsten Stroud | Violin in a Void
I have never seen a writer so radically adapt his voice to his plot as what Stroud did here. Staff pick — Niceville 1 12 Aug 04, Published June 12th by Knopf first published The writing is absolutely delightful The author seemed to aim at somewhere between a dark comedy of errors and a ghost ish story in the vein of a Stephen King in the mood to tap into the history of a creepy town populated by locals with genealogies stretching back to some fatal root.
There are several moments of “wait – that’s not what I thought would happen” always a good thing but also several moments of “just get on with it, I’ve read this before”. Why is it boring? A security camera captures the moment of his instant, inexplicable vanishing. Nov 11, Michael rated it it was ok Shelves: There were genuinely creepy moments sprinkled throughout the story, so I thought for sure the climax would take it up a notch.
Anyway, obviously this book was not to my taste. Rainey has no personality, and Kate lingers in between. I had to wade through some pretty blatant info dump the kind where one character tells another character lengthy details he had to have already knownlazy characterizations Chinese dude as IT whiz kid and downright stupid choices by some of those characters to finally arrive at the climax, which felt rushed and, well, boring.

The dialogue was snarky and snappy. Sadly, that opening cartsen the tension surrounding the disappearance of Rainey disappear in the next few chapters. The ending may have left me wanting a bit, but the other pages were quirky, dark and weird. The book managed to infuriate with its writing alah Mary Higgins Clark with building up a chapter only to stop it abruptly and pick up three of four chapters later.
Jul 31, Majanka rated it did not like it Shelves: I’m not sure I would recommend this title. Something dark and sinister is lurking in Niceville and has been there doing wynopsis bad things there for a long long time.
A book that includes this passage in the first few pages is a winner: There might symopsis some “good guys” or not.
It just seemed a little lack luster to me. He lives and writes in Thunder Beach, Ontario, Canada.
Review of Niceville by Carsten Stroud
It seems also that anyone coming close to this sinister thing She works as a Legal Counsel, and also has a Criminology degree. I found myself unable to remember who certain p It didn’t gel for me. By the time the author got back to the interesting story about all the other disappearances in nicevlile town of Niceville, the story seemed to end rather abruptly. A me ha annoiato e ha detto ben poco. The writing style was sloppy and dull, like the author lack affection for words.

Book Review: Niceville by Carsten Stroud
I organize virtual book tours and other promotional events for authors on Enchanted Book Promotions. Found this one a little disjointed. Overall, a wonderful read. Mar 13, Shorty rated it really liked it Shelves: But amidst child abductions, kiddie porn, bank robberies and corporate espionage there’s trouble from the “outside”, and in Stroud’s world that means some kind of alternate plane of existence or ghosts or something else entirely.
Forse, se si ha la pazienza di leggere certi capitoli, poi potrebbe anche piacere. Absolutely descriptive and imaginative; and the story had me completely engrossed. There are overlaps of course, but the strongest caraten between the two is formed when a character from the crime story becomes an important part of xynopsis horror plot.
Literally disappears — a security camera shows him looking at something in a shop window, stepping back with his mouth opening carstenn alarm, and then vanishing from sight as if someone were playing a cheap trick with the film. For now, he decides to practice and perfect his plan by ruining the lives of people with no connection to him.
