If this book were a record, it'd be the kind of record that would really piss-off some stock boy. It wouldn't fit nicely into any one record bin. You'd probably need five copies of it just to make sure that it was found where someone decided to look for it. It's science-fiction, sort of. At times it was almost surreal and had my conjuring up images of Batman comics, but there is no real super-hero. Well, maybe there is. It's a romance, kind of.

If this book were a record, this would be the kind o

This novel came to me as a GoodReads’ giveaway.

Maybe I’m pathetic and lonely but certain books I want to squeeze, heave my arms around and hug.

Ryan Morris’ novel “Molt” is one of those and it now sits along with a couple of others on my Books To Hug shelf.

I was no more than a couple of dozen pages into the story before I wanted to give the novel’s heroine — Isabelle Rochelle Donhelle — an embrace all her own. Bella, a 29 year old French-Canadian woman from Ville Constance, Quebec, is the most en

I'm biased, since I wrote it myself. But don't listen to me...here are a few other reviews:

(from Amazon.ca)
A fantastic first novel from Vancouver author Ryan Morris. Morris has created an engaging and vivid world in this understated psychological thriller. I just loved this book! Never one to pay all that much attention to birds beyond the casual acknowledgment of spring's first robin or the odd murder of crows, I have a new and deeper appreciation of ornithology (as well as the amount of resear

I finished this book a year ago, and it is still on my mind-- sometimes it is in how I look at a bird a bit suspiciously, sometimes it is in how I chuckle over remembered lines or situations. I couldn't put the book down and was sad when it all had to end. In the main character, Isabelle, Ryan Morris does an amazing job of writing from the point of view of a woman navigating the strange. I cried with Isabelle, cringed with Isabelle, and wondered what the heck was up with Templeton with Isabelle. ...more

This story literally unfolds as you turn the pages. It requires patience, but all the peeling and weaving through ornithological terms is worth it. It's like a gift-wrapped box, with something sinister inside. You know there's something wrong with the contents of this box, underneath that mundane gift-wrapping paper. You don't know what it is, and you keep wondering if it's all that sinister anyways. The terror in this book is real. The thrill is real. And once it becomes real for the protagonis ...more

Right from the outset Molt captured me by surprise, drew me in and dared me to ‘figure it out’, threw me for a loop more times than I could count with its plot bends and twists… and didn’t let go until it had taken me on its fancifully complex flight and I was left pleasantly exhausted at the end. I couldn’t put it down…
