    • I read this entire book but, right from start until finish, I just could not get into it.Perhaps this kind of thriller does not mix well with literary fiction for me There were many things about Grist Mill Road that reminded me of the tone and style of American Psycho which I get will seem like a huge compliment to many readers Their narratives are both cold, distant and detached Grisly things happen in horrific detail but there is no emotional attachment to them.As seems to be the case w [...]

    • The opening scene in Grist Mill Road is the stuff of which nightmares are formed Three young teens in a brutal, savage act that goes beyond all measure of comprehension One will lose an eye and live with those nightmares forever One will live with the guilt of doing, saying nothing and one will go to jail for the crime Their lives are indelibly linked by the crime and by the lies that they told to themselves and others that day Grist Mill Road is split into two timelines the early 80 s sur The o [...]


    • 3.75 original, slow building stars to Grist Mill Road.75Grist Mill Road engaged me from the start I found it genre bending at first and didn t quite know what it was I ve settled on thinking it was descriptive literary fiction with a mystery I had such high hopes based on how it started The three people involved in this incident each had a voice, and we first heard from them in the 1980s when the event happened, and then again, 20 years later, when their lives intersected again In ma 3.75 origin [...]
