The Mushroom Man by Sophie Powell
Rate this book
Clear rating
The Mushroom Man reveals Sophie Powell's potential as a writer: imagination, insight, whimsy, language(!), but the story doesn't quite come together. Think--independent film set in the country, magical pixie children in triplicate, or in the form of ...more

The Carnival at Bray

This has all the great parts of a solid YA novel with some bonuses: great language, lovely gems of wisdom, and a main character who is messy enough to be a real person. Though the homage to the grunge era was a little overdone for me, I loved Maggie' ...more

Any comparisons to GONE GIRL, for me, are left behind with the missing girl plot. In many ways this is a better book.

Though the book is mainly told through Rachel's eyes, two other women's stories add to this thriller that is reminiscent of Hitchcock

"January’s been a restless reading time, exacerbated by the winter blues. I haven’t been able to settle down to anything, bouncing from book to book, nothing holding my interest longer than a few dozen pages at best. It’s been an agony for someone..." Read more of this review »

Right from the start this book took me to uncomfortable places--abduction, a boy losing 4 years of his life, a mother who can't recover, a father who slinks away to his lover's bed whenever things get tough, money problems. Among the things I love ab ...more

Yannick Murphy is an amazing writer, taking risks in so many different ways in this story. The point of view initially confused me, though I got into it easily and appreciated the novelty of it. I also appreciated the artistry of the mystery and susp ...more

“I'm walking past the Unitarian church that's not far from the cemetery where you can find Emily Dickinson's grave, when I realize that in this part of my life I've become a scarecrow. It's been like this since that day the police came to the house - I have holes in me, and wind blows through. Oh, I seem to be person-shaped all right, but I'm going nowhere.”
Kathryn Burak, Emily's Dress and Other Missing Things
