Review of Highwayman by Craig Saunders
Highwayman - Craig Saunders

This one has been hard for me to review. I love anything and everything that comes from the shed of Craig Saunders. That said, this one wasn't my favorite. I loved the prose which was witty and intelligent. I loved the story line, which is Craig-like fantastical. As always, I loved the characters who were real, sometimes brutal, and humanly flawed. Certain parts did seem to get a bit rambly at times and a little more "out there" than I typically like.

 

Highway man was a book that I read right after I lost my wife. There were so many things in it I could relate with, including Bethany who I sort of wanted to hate but I couldn't because I could see reflections of myself. Karl, who is this hapless, self-centered guy, who finds his soul in a coma. And The Highway man who it feels like has been following me all of my life. If you find yourself getting a little lost in this book, the journey is well worth it.

 

This is Craig Saunders, one of my go-to authors whose work I can't wait to read. I am comparing this book to his previous books, so to say that it's maybe 'less than' one of his other novels still makes it a heck of a lot better than many other books and authors I have read. I'm saying that I liked Deadlift, and Masters of Blood and Bone, and many of his other books better, yes, but I'm not saying that you shouldn't read this. It's Craig. You should always, always read Craig.

 

I received a copy of this from NetGalley and DarkFuse in exchange for an honest review.

I admit it. When it comes to my reading, I'm a completionist. For better or for worse, I finish what I start. I can't remember the last time that my little idiosyncrasy has bitten me in the butt as hard as it did when I read Craig Saunder's Highwayman. So many times I wanted to quit this mismashed bore of a story. But no. I trudged on through the mud of staccato bursts of sentences, multiple points of view storytelling that seemed to lead to nowhere, and a hazy plot that was about as entertaining as watching metal rust. Was it all bad? Not totally, but close. There were, indeed, parts where he'd get the ball rolling and I'd start to get into it only to come to a screeching halt and a new chapter of mundane happenings would be in front of me. I'm sure there's a decent story somewhere in Highwayman. Maybe I don't get what Saunders was trying to create. But, what I read a tedious lesson in patience with no payout for my troubles. Sorry, but I can't recommend Highwayman to anyone.

Highwayman
Highwayman - Craig Saunders After the loss of his daughter and a horrible plane crash that left him shattered and on life support, Karl finds himself wandering in The Land Between Midnight. His wife Bethany, is home battling against her own conflicted feelings of despair and the days gone by that were full of hope and promise.

If they are to survive individually, they will need to find a way to search out and fight their own demons separately. Only then will they have a shot at redemption. Only then can Karl and Bethany get the justice (and revenge) they seek.

I am a big fan of Craig Saunders and the Highwayman is a good tale, but honestly, a wee fantasy-ey for me and I may have got confused a time or two in the Fog-World. It was still an entertaining read and written well, as I knew it would be from Saunders. 3+ Stars

Reading progress update: I've read 55% and I'm setting this aside.
Highwayman - Craig Saunders

After forcing myself to skim a bit today, I'm throwing in the towel on this book.

 

For whatever reason, it's just not working for me or holding my attention.

 

I may pick it up at another time. This is not a reflection on the author, but instead a reflection of my mindset right now. Your mileage may vary.
