This has to be one of the most uniquely constructed stories I’ve ever read. This isn’t just a simple monster story. It is told in such a way as to create a new method of storytelling that might have been a risky move in the hands of a lesser author, but that this author pulled off to perfection.
Where to begin... let us start with characters. This story had a very broad range of characters. In fact, the story didn’t really have one or two or a handful of main protagonists in the conventional way. Rather, it had a seemingly endless parade of characters all living through an experience that begins with a startling event, progresses over time and finishes in a new way. Hence the unusual construction I mentioned. One would thing that having numerous characters, a large, progression of time and changing circumstances would grow confusing for the reader, or that it would be difficult to invest in the story without a couple steady and central characters to follow around. Not so in this case. The author did a fantastic job with each and every character in the time frame they were given and the circumstances you witness through their eyes. They were well-crafted and sympathetic, and you couldn’t help rooting for each and every one.
Aside from that, the author’s overall writing style and voice was descriptive, thoughtful, and evoked emotion. As I said, this is not your average monster story, largely due to the author’s style. The story was engaging, the pacing fast, and the events were simply fascinating. I was completely engrossed in this world he created and wanted more when it ended. Fantastic!
