It has been far too long since I've read just for fun. I came across author, Jonathan Ryan online and decided to try out his recently released and much lauded thriller novel, 3 Gates of the Dead. Sooo glad I did! I was entertained, and creeped out, and thrilled... but I also felt like I had received something.
Ryan is not only a good story teller, he's very insightful and adept at "showing", in a gently didactic way, some deeply human dilemmas and opposing philosophies that truly resonated with me. I read it quickly, due to his smooth and interesting narrative, and enjoyed it very much. I love a book that is fun to read but also makes me think.
The characters are well drawn and the suspenseful story crescendos into a big, scary finish that you won't want to miss. This is the first in a series and I totally look forward to seeing what happens next in this spooky world that Ryan has created.
