    Crossing the Bridge

    I really enjoyed the beginning of this story. It pulled me in and kept me interested. Hugh's feeling of being trapped, not only in his old home town but in his father's card shop, was portrayed very well. It was almost as if, since Chase never had the chance to continue on with his life that Hugh felt the need to curtail his own life. He never really moved forward all that much from the moment in time when his brother drove off of the bridge. I could see the different meanings as well with crossing a bridge. There was the literal bridge that Chase drove off of, there was the bridge to the future that Hugh didn't want to cross and the bridge to the past that meeting Iris and renewing their friendship showed. At times I got frustrated with Hugh, he was watching his father spend the day in his bathrobe afraid to even climb the stairs because of his heart attack. While he could see how stuck his father was without there being a real need for it, he didn't seem to recognize how stuck he himself was. The moving every year or so to a new job and a new relationship, his fear of developing anything long term or even really starting a career for no real reason. It was so similar to his father but he couldn't see it.

    When Hugh and Iris renewed their friendship and spent time together I was glad because they both seemed to still be healing from Chase's death ten years before and they were helping each other. It was nice too to see Hugh start to develop some friendships and interests. Unfortunately towards the end of the middle it felt like the novel dragged a bit. I found myself not as keen about picking it up, but this might have been almost purposeful on the authors part to show us how stuck Hugh was with his perception of the past and his inability to go into the future. As the novel started to conclude and pieces started to fall into place I once again felt very engaged by the story. It was a satisfying story. In the end notes from the author he mentions that he is writing under an assumed name as he usually writes non-fiction which has made me curious about his other works. Along with this fiction novel he has another novel that was published prior to this and one that comes out in May. This book will be available tomorrow, January 5th, 2010.



    Where the book came from: Received from the publisher for review. Thank you The Story Plant for the chance to read this novel.

    A Light-Weight Sparks

    This book reads like a light-weight Sparks novel. The supporting characters are card-board cut-outs. This is the third Baron book I've read; they all srike me as boring with the endings too contrived.

    Highly Recommended! I couldn't put it down!!!

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The author has a way of keeping you interested and wondering what will happen next. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read more by Michael Baron!

    book is a bit flat lined

    Sorry to report I was not impressed with the book..I kept waiting for it to take off but it just didnt..I was also a bit upset that the main guy was actually a jerk kinda guy...
    did not like how he left his dad hanging for so long..just added to the fathers health stress and issues..the main guy was very selfish...
    the story was very flat...sorry..but i will try another book by this author...I dont think one book defines an author..
