really liked it

I ran across an Advanced Reader's/Reviewer's Edition of this book for $1.00 outside of The Strand and was initially taken with the title. Thought, what could I lose? ...nothing. This debut novel was hauntingly stunning; an absolute pleasure to read. Wylde's got guts. She has command of character conflict, detail, pacing, and dialogue. She knows how to lure the reader in ( shockingly believable through male perspectives), grab him by the throat and hold on until she's ready to let go. She had me. I'll look for more of her work. While the book had it's weakish moments, and while it could have been a tad longer... knows how to tell a story, reminding me a bit of Cormac when he's at his best, and it's rare in contemporary fiction...so it was much appreciated. This is an entertaining story.

Leah A. Hi, Zachary, I just finished After the Fire. . .and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Have you read All the Birds Singing? It was stunning, to say the least. Give it a try.
