Book Review of John Mulhall's GEDDY'S MOON


GEDDY'S MOON was written by debut novelist John Mulhall and was published by Blanket Fort Books February 20th, 2013. You can learn more about John by visiting his website at www.johnmulhall.com
    Geddy’s Moon can be described with only one word…  Masterpiece! The characters are full of life and can be seen by the reader as clearly as if they were standing right in front of you. The level of emotion achieved by the writer is a true thing of beauty and not something you easily find amongst debut novelists.  I fell in love with the characters and found myself twisted up with every emotion they felt… I had to know more, I had to take that journey with them. I am so glad I did.

'Geddy's Moon' is a quaint little town in Kansas. Like so many small towns, Geddy’s Moon has a few secrets of its own and doesn’t plan on keeping them hidden for long. Tyler has been trying to recover his memory for some time when he finds himself in the windswept wheat fields of Geddy’s Moon; a new life ahead of him. He meets a woman and begins spending time with her and her son. On the surface, everything seems great, but it is what’s just beneath the surface that’s got Tyler on edge.
As each night in Geddy’s Moon brings more and more vivid nightmares, Tyler is unsure if those around him are safe; unsure if he is even who he thinks he is. As the dreams become more real, so do the childhood memories that began to race back in; memories that can’t possibly be real… or can they?
The story is complex, but well thought out. There are some horrifying moments, some brilliant twists-&-turns and the ending is, for lack of a better word, perfect!
I have seen so many readers comparing Geddy’s Moon to the likes of Stephen King and even Dean Koontz ( a pretty sweet comparison might I add?), BUT…

I WILL NOT BE DOING THAT…
However, I will tell you that Geddy’s Moon is a book unlike any you have read and though the narrative feels familiar, like an old friend whose face has faded in memory over time, but whose voice stays with you and lingers, John Mulhall has stood up and screamed to the rafters and he has done it with a voice ALL his own!  A truly new voice has emerged… Horror fans take notice!

I am giving Geddy’s Moon a much deserved 5-spider rating and recommending it to anyone who isn’t afraid of the dark!
