radical doubt Reviews
Hard to believe I turned the last page of Radical Doubt several weeks ago now, because I’m still carrying young Charlie and Sean, and a mixed bag of their moral-turned-shockingly amoral endeavors, around in my head. Chenoweth’s humor, threaded through his eloquent descriptions and pulsating spirals, are addictive in a sweet and salty way, often melodic and crushing at the same time. Never did I imagine that the “red speck” tailing these roustabouts through the Poconos to summer resort paychecks would hold the key to their own bondage in a crawling and brawling underground of flesh-trade criminals and less nefarious sad sacks. All under the highbrow noses of Black Bear Falls’ leisure class. What a storyteller. What a lasting read!
Radical Doubt had an interesting structure. Little side stories kept cropping up and making me smile. The characters in this book had depth, even the passing ones. It made the book feel genuine. It gave it depth that many books miss. I was impressed with the style. The two friends at the resort are at times hilarious and also unnerving. I raced through this book to see how it would end. Very nice.
Gritty. If you liked Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and/or shows like Breaking Bad that make you feel good about the choices you've made in life simply because they aren't nearly as poor as the choices made by the characters, this book is an excellent read. There is a good amount of violence and sex in Radical Doubt, so be warned. Avery is a great writer and will keep you turning pages until the end. Full disclosure: I helped Avery publish this book:)
I could not put this book down. As Charlie and Sean’s morality started to obscure, the plot just got better and better. I read it in two days when I had more important things I should have been doing but their adventures were addictive. The writing is brilliant. The story unique. For once I didn’t think I was reading just a rehash of someone else’s idea. Brilliant fun.
I wish I had a playlist of all the songs mentioned in the book. I would like to have listened to it during the time I was reading the book. I enjoyed the setting. I specifically like the 70's era and the behind the scenes world of the resort, from the mundane to the evil.
I love revisiting the 70’s and disco in particular. This story of two college buddies in an adventure made me laugh and feel young again. It was a great tale and told well. The pace is fast. The language fresh and edgy. It was a good time.
This story was much more demented and disturbed than I was expecting but entertaining as well.
