    One thought on “Risen”

    1. Do you know Seth The people of Anderson do and that s not necessarily a good thing I started this book thinking it was of a horror story but it isn t though some creepy stuff does happen I can t even think about the cockroachesI was pleasantly surprised to find that it was well written and as creepy as it was in parts it was funny in others Mr Strnad did a great job fleshing out his characters and the town of Anderson I kept picturing Mayberry for some reasonybe because a reference was made to [...]

    2. I really enjoyed reading this creepy tale and have become a fast fan of this author Several parts of this book have stuck with me for a long while after reading it I don t think I m going to think about cockroaches in the same way ever again SHUDDER.

    3. What I liked about this novel was that it managed to hold my interest clear through to the end So many novels I pick up now days don t With Risen A Supernatural Thriller, I struggled some with the slow beginning and there were a few areas where the pace lagged unnecessarily and I started to skim , but once the action got started, I breezed straight through to the end It managed to do what a good horror is supposed to do in my opinion give me the heebie jeebies and keep me guessing about what exa [...]

    4. Suppose you had an opportunity for a do over in life.ries intact, no illness, coma s, mental problems, handicaps, aches and pains totally refurbished and pick up right where you left off would you do it What if it required that you kill yourself first What s the catch Everybody in the town of Anderson seems to be doing it I don t read very many paranormal books and thought, at first, that Risen was a zombie book However, after reading the first couple chapters and discovering that it wasn t, I [...]

    5. After many, many unfinished free books for Kindle, I was skeptical Very skeptical But Wrong Very wrong This book was fabulous First, the humor I don t know if it was intentional but, in the first 5 chapters, I woke my husband up 3 times one night from laughing Then the hook I was hooked and couldn t stop reading The story was absorbing and the characters real I have to say I saw huge authors influencing this story I also individual flair and potential Can t wait to read another of Mr Strnad s bo [...]

    6. Death takes a holiday in a small town, but that isn t a good thing as Seth is behind it all The writing was adequate, the characters fair, but the story was still quite engaging and enjoyable My major criticism is the ending could have been much better for two reasons the editors situation could have been written better with impact, and a complete understanding of Seth would have fleshed out the story Despite this, it was still a good read with an original idea.

    7. I picked up this book on a whim It was an freebie, and I liked the cover Even though the description didn t do much for me, I gave it a try anyways I m super glad I did.Jan is an amazing storyteller and Risen is proof The vivid description pulls you in, the characters are well thought out, they live and breath, and the plot will keep readers up until the wee hours of the night turning pages Jan Strnad has just gained a new fan.

    8. A supernatural tale set in a quiet little town where suddenly the dead don t stay that way for long At midnight, when the church bell rings the newly dead become the risen The sick are healed, the insane are sane, all it takes is the miracle of dying first and rising again but just maybe death was better.

    9. I came into Risen not expecting much but to my delight Strnad has woven a town filled with dense characterisation and a well crafted story that zooms along The added short stories are like an extra cherry on top of your birthday sundae added with a wink by the cute Friendly s waitress with the nice wiggle in her walk.

    10. I thought it was a great triller The characters were built really well The bad thing was that there were parts that were really slow I didn t fly through it like I do most books I only kept reading because I expected it to pick up and it did.

    11. Not bad.Different, but not in a bad way Reminded me a bit of The Stepford Wives Interesting read The roaches were really grooms though

    12. This book is fantastic and super creepy I love when a book grabs my attention and I think about it all day and can t wait to pick it up again This story would make a great movie

    13. Not half bad, death takes a holiday, no one dies, the dead come back Fun read, all is good, until something strange surprised bad occurs and things go south.

    14. Great book If you are looking for a good supernatural thriller, then this would be the book for you The story drags in a few places but overall the pace is consistent.

    15. RisenVery good story Dragged in few places, but was easy to remember who was who Am looking forward to reading from this author in the near future
