All of the characters were mind numbingly atupid and most were also unlikeable. The dog was cool but the entire story was predictable from the outset. About 740 pages long and there is swearing and violence, unfortunately, not enough of either to make it a good book.

This is one of those books that you don't want to read while alone. Or with your back to a door. Or a mirror. Ideally, nowhere near a body of water or an old farmhouse. If you live on a patch of farm land with its very own pond, you might just be encouraged to move. Possibly three hundred miles away. I'm already a huge fan of Alan Nayes's work, having read and loved both Gargoyles and Girl Blue, but I believe Hemlock Pond is officially my favorite now. It is just as beautifully written as Alan's other books, if not even more so, and covers so many of the hard themes that people connect with -- loss, despair, and anger. Underlying it all, Hemlock Pond asks you, What would YOU do for your child? From page one,I was absolutely hooked on this book. It gripped me so hard that I stayed awake into the wee hours just to finish it, and then not only couldn't I fall asleep as I still pondered what I'd witnessed, but I woke up *still* thinking about it. It's one of those books that stays with you long after you're done. If you only read one of Alan's books, read this one. But if you only read one of Alan's books, you're crazy. Go read them all. I highly recommend Hemlock Pond and his others. Just be sure to keep the lights on.
