Take Me To The Cat by Bryant A. Loney: 2/5 Stars
Whatever happened to your elementary school friends?
Nostalgic high school senior Michael Jackson wants nothing more than to reunite with his friends from elementary school (and possibly change his name). Transferring before middle school after his parents’ nasty divorce, Michael always felt he was at his happiest back in his Oklahoma hometown. Inviting his lifelong crush Catherine, among other former classmates, to a spring break reunion party seems like the perfect plan for Michael to get closure on the formative years of his life.
Yet nothing is as he remembers when Michael finds himself entangled in his own confusion between reality and nightmare. Suddenly, secrets from his childhood resurface, and the fanatic ringleader from Michael’s past will do whatever it takes to silence his friends. Now it’s up to Michael to save them all before it’s too late. But does he have the courage and strength to go up against his own worst enemy?
In this quirky psychological thriller from the mind of Bryant A. Loney, Michael will go through hell and high water as he faces his inner demons, unaware that the revelation he seeks demands the ultimate sacrifice.
I decided to keep this review spoiler free and I hope y’all enjoy! I was sent a PDF. of this book in exchange for an honest review. I will keep my word and I will give an honest review of this book.
I enjoy reading thrillers and I don’t read enough of them as it is so I figured this would be a good chance to read one. I had some problems with this thriller though. I didn’t like the story like I thought I would. I feel like it was very jumbled and confusing. However, the author does have purpose and I wouldn’t mind taking a look at a few of his other books. I just believe that this book had the potential to be great but fell short.
I liked the characters in this book and I felt like they were developed well. I did get confused when more and more characters got introduced though. I kept getting their stories mixed up with others and it became a little hard to follow. However, I liked the main character and following him through his journey as he faced internal conflicts as well as external conflicts.
Sadly, I didn’t find this book too thrilling. It had some scenes that weren’t bad but for the most part I just couldn’t get into the story and what was going on. I also felt like there were some things that were left unanswered. I don’t want to say what they were because I don’t want to spoil the book. Plus I would love for y’all to read it so I can hear y’all’s opinion on the book as well. I just felt like too many things were started and then forgotten about.
This book seemed to start off really slow to me which only made it harder to get into. However, I’m not one to give up on a book so I pushed on and was disappointed that the book didn’t get better. The ending was probably the most interesting part though which is kind of sad because I prefer books to be interesting throughout.
Now, I’m not trying to bash on this book and definitely not bashing on the author. I envy someone so young following their dream. Like I said before I also want to read his other books. Maybe this book just didn’t work for me and I would love to see if his other books are something I like.
My biggest problem with this particular book is just how jumbled it could get and how many unanswered or unfinished things there were. Obviously, this is just my opinion though. Hmmmm….I believe I covered everything I wanted to. If you would like me to post a review with spoilers then comment below! 🙂 I can probably say more if the review has spoilers in it.
This review is pretty short, because I don’t want to spoil the book. I really want to see what y’all think of this book though so please get yourself a copy and comment on this post telling me if you agree with me or disagree. If you love thrillers go ahead and pick up this book, because it’s a pretty quick read and I wanna know what you think of it!
