    Intriguing Well this wasn't at all what I was expecting. Interesting vision about what might wait for us on the other side. This was a short read, but it was long on contemplation.

    I read this book months and months ago. I think the Goodreads date of completion is in June but I'd finished it well before then. At the time I read it I wasn't feeling emotionally or physically at the top of my game, so this is a short review to give some of my overall thoughts and feelings. I have mixed feelings about Engle Byen and therefore I don't know how to rate it. David Goldon is a new writer. An Aussie. I'd like to see him further hone his craft.

I have mixed feelings about Engle Byen and therefore I don't know how to rate it. David Goldon is a new writer. An Aussie. I'd like to see him further hone his craft. This book had an Aussie vibe, the language, the people, the setting, and it felt familiar when I needed familiar. It's unashamedly camp. I always enjoy that. I knew some of these people growing up. The concept is a good one, not that I can say much because there is a twist on the setting, the place, the world. The mixed feelings exist because the editing was not good. There's commas in the wrong place, tense problems, ok is used in speech - as opposed to some form of epistolary or typed social media communication - which is not okay, and the segue between chapters could be messy. Cancer is not a category - it's a stage. Just when something was beginning to happen you would be chopped off and moved along. I understand the mystery and supernatural element of surprise drove this. However, it needed to be executed better for more depth of character, etc. A few beta readers or proof readers who are not family or friends often help. When all is said and done, this book was easy reading and it made me smile at the right time. It made me hang on until the very end to see what would happen. It made me want to take a trip up to Byron Bay - that bit is semi-random. It reminded me of people I cared for who have passed now but were once colourful and formative individuals in my life. I'm incredibly thankful to David Goldon and Engle Byen for giving me that when I needed it.

    Strangely Compelling This novella was one of those stories where you know you're missing something obvious the whole time, but how obvious is it really if you can't figure it out? Yep. Mindtwister. That's pretty much what this story was. The characters were engaging and the pacing was good for a novella. I kept waiting for something really gnarly to happen and I wasn't disappointed although it wasn't nearly as dark as some of the other shorts I've read lately. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

I kept waiting for something really gnarly to happen and I wasn't disappointed although it wasn't nearly as dark as some of the other shorts I've read lately. That's not necessarily a bad thing. I had expectations, Oh The Horror! And this one lived up to those expectations and failed to live down to them in other ways. Figure that one out. Mindtwister. I don't want to spoil anything and that is all too easy to do with a shorter story so I won't say too much more. Suffice it to say that I would be surprised if anyone can both discern the threads that run through this story and weave them into something coherently accurate before the author reveals all. In other words, it's un-figure-out-able and if there's anyone out there who managed to suss out the plot and the twist in this one before we're explicitly told what's going on on-page, then I bow down to you because you must be a genius and this is for you: I absolutely love stories with unexpected twists where I can look back and go "Duh! How did I miss that?" before realizing that I missed it because someone way smarter and more skilled than I managed to keep it under wraps and there was NO WAY even my smart self could have caught on. Huh. I have an I've-been-outsmarted kink. Who knew? Read this story. You'll like it. It's not the hottest thing I've read lately, it's not the most funny, or the scariest, or the most ... well, anything really. What it is, is strangely compelling even if it doesn't really feel that way until after it's over. See? Strange. But don't forget the 'compelling' part. That's important, too. 3.5 Hearts More reviews by NeRdyWYRM can be found on Goodreads here. Images (when present) may be subject to copyright.

    A fresh new voice in Gay Fiction. DAVID GOLDON is a fresh new voice in Gay Fiction. Had me guessing right up to the end with lots of strange twists and turns and sights and sounds. I love this story, love his writing, and can’t wait for this to become a movie ... and to read the upcoming Prequel!

    It kept me going, when I had to stop, I couldn't wait to pick it up again, and that's kind of rare. It kept me going, when I had to stop, I couldn't wait to pick it up again, and that's kind of rare.

    The thinking person’s book. It was deep in a subtle way and believable in another way. When I reached the end all of my questions were answered. It all made sense. I just simply had to re-read it. It was then I began to pick up the subtle clues dotted throughout the story. I slapped myself in the head when I realised the key to the whole book was cleverly hidden away in plain sight the whole time (I can’t say anymore without spoiling it). If you want a read that makes you think, this one’s more The thinking person’s book. It was deep in a subtle way and believable in another way.
