    Dull & Boring

    I really do not like to be negative, but this offering just does not make it up to standard.

    Coleman delivers a rolllercoaster

    This is Jim Coleman's first published novel and fortunately, he seems to have avoided many of the pitfalls of first-time authors and come up with something new and exciting. It¿s refreshing to read virgin authors just to see what they can bring to the table. Can the newbie thread a plot? Can he or she tell the story from a characters perspective and make it believable in some way or interesting enough to make it past the first five pages? Coleman does not disappoint. His lead male and female characters carry us, the reader, through an off-kilter landscape of seemingly normal, mostly blue-collar, townspeople and their ¿secret things¿. Early on, we meet one of the regulars at a town pub; his obsessive use of nail clippers is enough to turn the reader¿s flesh ice cold, yet the discomfort this character causes is fascinating and the reader will want to know more. Somewhat conspicuous idiosyncratic behaviors plague others as well. What is causing the good townsfolk¿s bizarre behavior? In addition, why is the military setting up a cordon around the town? Through the actions of the main characters, we readers start to pull a thread. We start to unravel a buried secret larger than any the world has ever known. I think readers agree with me: Jim Coleman hit a homerun his first time at bat.
