Another TK Reader Weighs In

Here’s what Jaime from California says about Trout Kill:


Wonderful Stephen King-like character development and suspense. This complex story had me hooked early and I couldn’t put it down! Bravo Mr. Dage!


So far in the comments I’ve heard, suspense is a common theme. One reader used the phrase “page-turner.” Funny, when I wrote the darn story “suspense” wasn’t a big part of my thinking. I just wanted to develop a storyline in which Eddy acted on his impulses. True, he acts in quirky ways, which is another aspect of his character I’m hearing about, along with his unpredictability. One reader told me, “I sure didn’t know what was going to happen next.” And now this Stephen King comparison blows me away! Mr. King is the master of building and sustaining suspense, and I’m thrilled to even be mentioned in the same breath with him. Thanks, Jaime!
