Sins of the Father by D.W. Marchwell

Buying this book was a given; this is the third story by D.W. Marchwell that I've read and it totally blew me away. I've loved his other stories, but in Sins of the Father, he's surpassed himself. This is not a short story ~ I was up 'til 4:30 in the morning because I literally could not put this book down ~ but it read as though it were. Was it worth it? Oh heck yes! (I'm using much stronger language in my mind... just so you know.)
In fact just after I started reading the book I had to go back and buy the print version. This is one of those authors whose storytelling leaves me wanting his books in any form that I can get them... and, while I have a large list of favourite authors, the number whose books I have in all formats is much, much smaller.

Sins of the Father is amazingly rich in detail, the storyline is one that will stand the test of time and the characters? Dear heaven; they were phenomenal and... even thinking about them now leaves me feeling almost overwhelmed with emotion. Connected, involved with, interested in... none of these describe how I felt about them.
And the story ~ Wow! Even though I was merely an observer I felt as though I were there with all my senses involved and it and it totally rocked.

I'd like to say I'm speechless, but of course that won't wash... but it's taken me 6 hours before I felt capable of doing D.W. Marchwell's Sins of the Father any justice at all.

So run, do not walk, and buy yourself a copy... you won't be sorry!

  3. Hi Chris, I envy you reading it for the first time. It really is fantastic.

  4. Hey Eyre, it really is. I've liked everything that he's written. D.W. Marchwell is on my favourites and autobuy list; this is one example of why.
